Hello, I'm Celene, a PhD graduate in Applied Mathematics from the University of Nottingham. My research focused on the numerical and asymptotic analysis of nonlocal travelling wave equations, and I hold a First-class Honors MSc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Manchester. As a tutor at a college in Nottingham, I bring over ten years of tutoring experience, working with students of all ages and abilities, from primary school to university levels, both in-person and online. In 2021, I was honoured with the Postgraduate Teaching Assistant Award from the University of Nottingham for my demonstrative work in the School of Mathematical Sciences. I find immense joy in building students' confidence in mathematics and inspiring them to succeed not only in exams but also to enjoy and gain confidence in the subject. As an engaging and enthusiastic tutor, I am dedicated to ensuring that you or your child receives the best understanding of the subject. I specialise in identifying and addressing weaknesses and transforming them into strengths to help you reach your full potential. Whether you need that final push for an upcoming exam or have always found math confusing, I genuinely believe I am the one to help. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your best! Teaching Accomplishments: - Helped a Year 6 student pass her SAT for the first time. - Assisted a Year 7 student in moving up her Maths set from third to second in school. - Improved the grade of a Year 8 student from 60% to 80% in four months. - Enhanced the grade of a Year 8 student from 70% to 85% in one month. - Raised the class test results of an AS Maths student from 37% (failed) to 65% (B) after 9 lessons. Fees: - KS3: * £30/hour (tailored lesson materials included) - KS4 * £40/hour (tailored lesson materials included) - A-levels: * £40/hour (if you provide your own materials) * £50/hour (for tailored lesson materials) - University levels: * £50-70/hour (depending on the level and availability of materials) Methodology: Everyone learns at a different pace, so I tailor our one-to-one tutoring sessions specifically for you. In our initial discussion, I'll assess your abilities, identify areas for improvement, and discuss your goals. Alternatively, I can test you on various topics to pinpoint areas needing extra support. Based on this information, I'll create a comprehensive plan for our initial lessons, where I'll explain topics using examples before guiding you through a range of questions with increasing difficulty. We'll conclude by tackling an exam question related to the topic, fostering confidence. Each tutorial will also include review sessions to reinforce previous topics, as mathematics is about practice, practice, practice! My teaching style focuses on engaging students through discussion and questions throughout the session to cultivate curiosity and active participation. My priority is to make you feel comfortable asking anything, ensuring a complete understanding of the material.

I am a qualified teacher (QTS) and have been teaching GCSE and A Level Chemistry full time at a secondary school in the UK for 20 years. As the head of Chemistry department I have also been mentoring trainee teachers for 12 years. I taught Medicinal (Pharmaceutical) Chemistry at a medical uni for 17 years before I became a secondary school teacher. During my time working at the uni I also spent an year at a German pharmaceutical company as a visiting scholar carrying out extensive chemical/pharmaceutical research. My experience has been extremely helpful when I teach medicine related topics such as organic synthesis and optical isomerism to A level classes. I am a popular teacher with my students and willing to try different approaches to help my students achieve their best potential. My strength includes GCSE Combined and Triple Chemistry and A level Chemistry. I am very good at using exam style questions to help students consolidate their knowledge and apply their understanding. My students benefit greatly when I explain what all typical exam style questions are for any given topics. I am able to do so as I have taught for so many years and marked/graded countless GCSE and A Level Chemistry papers. I believe I have a lot to offer to my students as a tutor in terms of subject knowledge, exam experience and teaching style. Give me a try and I am confident that you will not be disappointed. Thank you and good luck with your exams!

I am very passionate about languages and cultures. I am fluent in both Mandarin and English and have been teaching Mandarin for the last 10 years. My other big passions are travelling and learning all sorts of things new. I am looking forward to sharing my love of the Chinese language with you. I cover all four elements of language teaching syllabus, including listening, speaking, reading and writing. I have tutored students for the past 10 years, ranging from complete beginners, to GCSE students, A level students, HSK students and business professionals. I am very keen to help students discover their own ways of learning and develop their own techniques. I believe in consistency when it comes to learning a language. A little bit everyday is proven effective in the long term for language learning.

I graduated with first class honours on BA (Mathematics) degree at University of Cambridge. After graduating, I spent almost two years working as an Analyst at a consulting firm, where most of my work revolved around coding in C#. However, as my true passion lies in Mathematics, I left my job to look for something education related. I am currently working in two tutorial centers, Conbridge and Helios Education, located in Shen Zhen and Hong Kong respectively. I mainly offer tutoring services to high school students looking to apply to G5 universities in the UK. After more than a year of tutoring, I noticed three things that are crucial to being a teacher. Firstly, I change up the materials and speed of teaching based on the students’ ability. A teacher’s job is not just to go through the syllabus with students, but also to set the right pace of teaching in order to get the points across effectively. Secondly, I put a huge emphasis on the flow and clarity when explaining concepts. There are topics that seem like common sense to some, but are not as straight forward for others. It is therefore important to communicate ideas in a clear and concise way that suits everyone. Finally, I constantly check with my students that they understand what has been taught. I do this by giving out exercises regularly, as well as making the classes more interactive. I enjoy playing board games, which I think is useful in developing teenagers’ logical thinking through having fun. I also enjoy developing games in Unity in my free time. Combined with my previous work experience as a C# Analyst, I would be able to introduce my students to the world of computer science, which is becoming an increasingly important area in modern society.

Subjects Mathematics: Primary, 11+, 13+, GCSE and IGCSE Mandarin Chinese: Beginner, Primary, HSK, GCSE, IGCSE, A Level, IB, Cambridge Pre-U and Undergraduate Level Biography As a qualified teacher in maths, I reflect on my practice daily and seek to improve pupils’ confidence and results. Prior to graduating from the University of Cambridge, I completed my A-level studies with the highest achievable grades in maths, Mandarin Chinese, politics and history. For the last ten years, I have worked in education and subsequently gained a deep insight into the techniques for effective learning and teaching. In terms of maths tutoring, I am experienced in helping pupils reduce their anxiety towards the subject by addressing the barriers to grasping mathematical concepts. I prepare my pupils to achieve both procedural fluency and sound conceptual understanding with the objective of improving their exam results. I make use of a Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract approach (CPA) which emphasises the exploration of the concrete and pictorial stages in greater depth before moving on to abstract concept and mathematical procedures. Virtual and physical manipulatives are used to support this process. It is also key to mode visual approaches such as bar modelling. Instructions are broken down into manageable chunks to help with sequencing steps in longer mathematical processes. I also use consistent mathematical vocabulary so as to reduce confusion. Maths words mat with explanations is used in class to encourage pupils to analyse questions independently. As for Mandarin tutoring, I help pupils gain an understanding of the language by studying the original pictorial representations of characters and the structure of pinyin. I find it important to give pupils a sense of achievement early on by using a variety of strategies to boost their confidence, which is key to language learning. Lesson materials and format are also tailored to align with their special interests to make lessons enjoyable and fun. Another key aspect of my lessons is to help pupils transform their short-term performance into long-term learning by using a multitude of revision techniques to improve knowledge retention. For those who are preparing for public exams, for example GCSE or A Level, in addition to subject knowledge, the focus will be on exam techniques and revision skills to make sure students are familiar with the exam syllabus and requirements. Testimonials “Can’t praise Amanda enough. Not only is she a genius teacher but she has a wonderful and generous personality. The way she approaches teaching is thoughtful and inventive - for instance she made C become the teacher in order to ensure that she really understood the maths topic they were covering. With J, she has woven Mandarin into everyday activities and chat - from naming the food at lunch to today going to Chinatown so J can order a meal!! The children are learning loads and - crucially - loving every minute of their time with Amanda. Funny, patient and with a dazzling intelligence - she’s 100% wonderful!” - Parent of C & J (Year 7 Mandarin & Year 5 Maths) "Thank you so much for your help! I've got an A* in my GCSE speaking and writing assessment. Thank you!" – Oliver (GCSE Mandarin)

Hi, thank you for landing on my profile. I am a native Italian and Chinese tutor, and I have been teaching Italian and Chinese (as well as English, French and Spanish) for many years, both in person and online. I am passionate about empowering my students and designing classes that allow them to learn quickly whilst having fun. With the right method, anyone can learn a language, and I am here to help you find out what works best for you. Of course, if you have a textbook or a specific curriculum, we can follow that. I personally love learning languages because they open so many doors and help people connect in real life. I am teaching myself German, Russian, Catalan and next year I will start Japanese. I currently live between London, Barcelona and Milan, so online classes are easier to arrange. About me, I spent 25 years between Europe and China and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Sustainable Tourism, working with the government. I also work as a tour director organising and leading tours across Europe (and other parts of the world) for schools and private groups. I am a qualified yoga/qi gong/ meditation teacher, and some of my hobbies are scuba diving, tango, cooking and playing music (mostly violin and piano).

I recently graduated from UCL psychology with first class honours! I have gained a lot of experience running psychology experiments and writing up lab reports. I have a strong interest in marketing so I did my dissertation on memory and brand awareness. I previously studied at a British international school in China. I got all As for my IGCSE and 40 points for International Baccalaureate. I mainly tutored students in writing university entry personal statements as I am proficient in this crafting process. I obtained an interview at Cambridge, I got accepted to UCL, Bath, Durham and KCL. I understand the pressure and struggle that many students go through when reflecting upon and framing their strengths to complement their high academic achievements. I hope to help guide students to present the best versions of themselves to get that university interview or offer! I hope to teach those who are still in IB or GCSE the critical analysis and writing skills required at university level. I am very flexible with my teaching as I acknowledge that every student has different agendas and goals. Therefore, I like to tailor my lessons to their needs. I also feel that setting a structure and timeline at the beginning will really help students stay on track and achieve their goal without having to rush their work. In my spare time I am a very outgoing person who loves to network and meet new people. I also like to stay active so I have been practicing Muay Thai for more than a year now. I really recommend practicing martial arts as it teaches you discipline and mental clarity that is benefitting in all aspects of life.

Welcome to my profile ! My name is Dr. Michelle-Ann, I am a medical doctor who absolutely loves teaching. I ensure that each student's learning experience, is personalised and memorable. My mantra is "Learning is FUN"! How can learning be fun you might wonder? Well, great question! During my five (5) years teaching experience I have found that, presenting lessons in a fun way have helped students to retain subject knowledge better. I have used games, appropriate to the age group of students, varying from a mini basketball game, a game of miniature bowling and for more mature students a game of problem solving related to the lesson. Each activity has two things in common, it is fun for the student and it is based on a reward system. The reward systems have included but is not limited to: stickers for young students; applause for more mature students or just simply some words of encouragement. These incentives are simple yet effective forms of motivation. This fun based approach, provides an optimum learning environment for students and inevitably helps them to succeed.

How long does it take to reach proficiency with a Mandarin tutor in Birmingham?

If you would like to learn Mandarin, A native English speaker will need about four years to learn how to speak Chinese fluently. Learning a foreign language like Mandarin can be difficult but not impossible. You will need about 5 hours of study time with a private mandarin tutor in Birmingham to make quick progress.

Should I learn Cantonese or Mandarin?

If you are new to Chinese languages, we recommend you learn Mandarin. Cantonese and Mandarin are very different languages spoken in different areas of the country. Mandarin Chinese is a little easier than Cantonese as it has four tones versus the nine tones of the latter. Remember, a Cantonese native speaker does not know Mandarin and vice versa. Having a Mandarin tutor in Birmingham will assist you in understanding the Chinese culture better so that you know about the differences in languages.
