Bonjour! My name is Clément. I am a French native speaker from beautiful south of France and I speak fluent English and Italian. I has been living in England for 6 year now. I have 5 years of experience as a private tutor in UK, teaching children and adults for various levels and needs. I hold a Master degree in French as a foreign language and Bachelor degree in Italian language and litterature. I worked as a French teaching assistant in Italy, in a technical high school and as a learning support assistant in a high school in France. Conveying my passion for languages and help students discovering the culture behind it is my preferred approach for teaching languages. I adapt my lessons to your specific needs in comprehension and expression, oral and written, pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. In my lessons I use videos, press articles and songs. I can also suggest activities to do at home between classes. I am passionate about learning languages that's why I would be thrilled to help you during that exciting journey.

I have taught through the pop and rock guitar syllabus from grades 1-8 and enjoy encouraging students to craft their own style. I specialise in the blues/rock/jazz styles and am an experienced session musician having worked in a number of studios including Abbey Road. I am also a keen writer and like to encourage creativity in a student, having specialised in improvisation whilst I studied a Bachelor of Music at Goldsmiths University. I have also worked with Wolverhampton council, assisting and leading pop and rock workshops with ZIP Rock music. Teaching a summer school workshop over a number of months between 2015-2016. This taught me the skills to work with groups of students, working on their abilities to play a perform together. I'm friendly and easy to get along with. I have been working with students, teaching music and English for over three years. I love helping a student progress and work towards their own personal goals. This is at the centre of my teaching style, making the lessons as much about the student as possible. Alongside this I gig regularly and play in a number of bands. This is my passion and something I always hope to pass on to students, encouraging them to go out into the world and play music!

Do you want the advantage of real world experience? Having worked in the creative world of advertising for 20 years since graduating from one of the world's renowned universities, I have been teaching students from over 10 different countries across the Middle East and the UK. I have successfully tutored young learners, adults and undergraduates, both privately and in colleges to improve, strive and succeed. After graduating from University of the Arts London with a BA (Hons) in Communication I went on to work as an Art Director and then later as a Creative Director in advertising where I managed, art directed and wrote advertising scripts for radio and TV and digital media. Along the way, I also started training clients for their marketing and design requirements. I worked in London for fifteen years and in 2008 went to Dubai as a Creative Director for a multinational advertising agency. In 2012 I got married and went traveling with his wife and started teaching English with Dubai as a base. That same year I got a post teaching the academic English course to undergraduates at the Dubai branch of Shiraz University, one of Iran’s most prestigious universities. This was an incredibly challenging job with large classes of terrifyingly bright young adults studying subjects as diverse as Engineering and Architecture to Finance and Chemistry!
A baptism by fire like no other. Following that, I instructed at three colleges in Dubai as a freelancer. I ended up specializing in Business English, particularly in the areas of presentation skills and writing. I studied the IELTS exam and became the prime instructor for this at another college in Dubai. The classes were huge, but a lot of fun! Once a week the class was divided into a smaller Academic group, which I also planned lessons for and taught. These students were predominantly medical professionals looking to work for the NHS in the UK. Since returning to London from Dubai in 2016, I have been teaching as a freelancer in London colleges as well as privately. Having worked in the advertising industry for almost twenty years, I feel this gives me a natural edge in the education field because of my ability to effectively communicate difficult ideas and concepts in a fun and engaging and above all, memorable way. My approach is very student – centered as a result. Online, The Red Ink is now an invaluable resource for English language students looking to take the IELTS exam as well as a forum for writing and general English language knowledge.

I was educated at Oxford University and the Royal Academy of Music in London. At Secondary School I specialized in Science and Maths and have 2 A*s and an A at A-level as well as 10A*s at GCSE. I have 10 years of academic tutoring experience in Maths, Science, English, History and Music from Primary through to GCSE including Common Entrance. I have worked as a mentor giving career advice to 15-18 year olds as well as providing Oxbridge interview preparation. In addition I have tutored Music A-level, helped with degree-level assignments, and have taught cello and piano for over 10 years both privately and in schools. I have several years experience in working with autistic and disabled children as a charity worker with Cambridge Joint Play Schemes, as well as from tutoring private clients. I am also a fully qualified Functional Movement Specialist (health and fitness). As a tutor I am flexible in my approach towards each student. Depending on their learning style and strengths and weaknesses in each subject area, I employ a variety of methods to facilitate learning, memorization and a critical thinking approach. I regularly give students opportunities to summarize what they have learnt and test their understanding and memorization of information, in order to foster deeper learning and memorization. I believe strongly that a positive, encouraging and supportive tutoring approach is critical to a students success and also like to make some time to get to know each student and chat generally about their interests.

I graduated with a 1st Class Honours degree from the University of Leeds. As a major academic scholar at Magdalen College School, Oxford, I studied maths and sciences at A-level, achieving grades of A* (Maths) AAA (Further Maths, Physics, Music). Although my greatest academic strengths are maths and physics, my personal interest led me to study Music at the University of Leeds, where I tailored my degree to included a mix of musicology, performance, pedagogical techniques, and a strong side component of philosophy. I'm patient and friendly, and am skilled at quickly developing a rapport with children and teenagers. I currently work as an instrumental tutor and freelance musician. I have been giving one-on-one guitar lessons since 2016. I teach both children and adults from beginners to advanced players. As well as this I have studied teaching techniques as part of my degree. I have also had experience in a language school working with teenage students visiting the UK to improve their English. This role required me to oversee groups of 10-20 students, plan their activities daily, develop a friendly yet authoritative rapport with them (which required excellent communication given their level of English). With a breadth of interests and skills that cross over sciences, arts and humanities, I am accustomed to approaching a range of problems using different conventions and styles of thinking. I aim to understand a student's own way of thinking and learning and use this to develop their weaker areas in ways to which they are most receptive. In doing so, I aim to develop their confidence in their own ability to tackle problems and produce work of a high standard in areas they might not initially feel so comfortable in.

- Hello, my name is João and I'm from Portugal. I began my musical studies by learning alto saxophone back when I was 12 years old. Since then I've experimented with various other instruments such as Piano, Guitar and Recorder and feel very comfortable teaching all of them. I've been teaching for the last 6 years and I have experience with students from 10 to 65 years old. I always try to tailor my lessons around the students, both their personality and musical taste, and I think that's very important factor whether I'm teaching young children, teenagers, or adults. Besides the standard music practice that goes on in a class, I often listen to music with my students, improvise and talk about the mechanics and theory the music language. You can expect a devoted teacher from me.

I am a University of Glasgow graduate with a BA in History. Following my graduation, I have been working as a private tutor, mostly with History and Politics/Economic students at A-level and undergraduate level. I have also tutored History and English at GCSE level. My lessons are tailored to the student's needs, and towards the exam, the focus of my approach is on exam practise and using past papers to understand assessment methods. In very simple terms, I find the process of helping rewarding; helping a student organise their revision, overcome anxiety or confusion and prepare for any eventualities that may occur in exams. I am inspired to teach history because I believe in the power of the subject to help us understand the present and to reflect on and learn about our own experiences. I cover the OCR, Edexcel and AQA exam boards.

I am a professional singer/songwriter, I have released my own music and performed all over the UK and i would love to share my experience with you. I've been playing guitar for 8 years and been singing for 13 years. I've been teaching vocals for 3 years to all types of singers. My lessons focus mainly on breathing, control and supporting the voice with the body. All of my lessons include building technique as it's very important as a singer to grow a big tool box full of different techniques to use for different opportunities. Once we have learnt a selection of songs, my students get the chance to record these songs in my home studio, this is a great opportunity for you to learn some helpful techniques for the industry and build up a portfolio of professional covers. Please send me a list of all the songs you would like to practice with before our session, this way I can ensure I am most prepared for the lesson ahead. This will be my first time as a guitar tutor, however, I'm confident I can get yourself to a strong, supported Intermediate level with my teaching.

I'm a guitar teacher, songwriter, producer, and composer based in London. With five years of guitar teaching experience, I’ve taught students from grade 1 to grade 4, both beginner and intermediate levels and with age ranging from five to 40. Being a versatile teacher, I focus on students’ individual strengths and interests while adapting my teaching methods to meet every student’s goals, whether he or she aims for a professional music career or just to play guitar as a hobby. I’m actively involved in London music scene and I’m eager to help students to develop their craft and find their unique style. If students are interested to learn about songwriting, I'm willing to share my passion and help to develop their songwriting skills. My aim is to listen to student’s needs and to build a strong practical and theoretical ground knowledge for students coming from different musical backgrounds. As a conservatory trained guitarist and singer, I read, write and transcribe music. Additionally, I have sound music theory skills. I've graduated from Helsinki Pop&Jazz Conservatory with electric guitar and songwriting as my major, and from Porvoo music school with classical piano (grade 6). Since 2014, I’ve released one EP and four singles for an indie-rock band Bye Mandu, co-written songs with Finnish popular artists like Sini Yasemin and Vesta as well as worked as a session songwriter at Volume Production Studios in Helsinki. My most recent work also includes a composition for musical theatre, film soundtracks and a debut album for my solo artist project. At the moment, I’m studying BA Songwriting at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London and teaching guitar students alongside my studies. I’m willing to teach anybody who wants to improve their guitar playing skills.
