Classical piano and music theory lessons for beginners, intermediate and advance students
I provide piano lesson for beginning, intermediate and advanced students, preparing them for piano exams up to grade 8, including the necessary aural and music theory training. I also teach pre-school children from the age of 3 as well as children with disabilities, adjusting the music program to their needs. When working with young children I focus on developing their musical imagination and curiosity, while also providing them with technical skills and a detailed understanding of the musical score. I aim to provide a firm basis on which they can build a western classical repertoire, or any other musical style they choose. For beginners I work with one of the early piano syllabi, usually Thompson's 'Easiest Piano Course' or Oxford's piano method book 'Piano Time,' which consist of fun songs and simple melodies. Through this the pupil is gradually introduced to various aspects of the melody (such as pitch, duration of notes, phrasing and articulation) and coordination of both hands on the keyboard in a creative and stimulating way. At this stage I place a strong emphasis on proper body posture and hand position. As the pupil acquires fundamental piano skills and gets comfortable reading music I proceed with them through the ABRSM or Trinity piano syllabus to a more advanced repertoire. Throughout a student’s education, I incorporate sight reading, scales exercises and technical work into the lesson structure and daily practice routine of the pupil. I also focus on developing my students’ understanding of how music theory applies to the material they play. Applying Musicological knowledge and own performing experience I teach students in depth analyses of the music they play, guide their individual interpretation and bring their awareness to the specifics of a historically informed performance. My pupils play a broad variety of western classical styles, and I will work with them to balance their program and maximise their enjoyment and appreciation for music. The student will become familiar with the main forms and stylistic traits of baroque, classical, romantic and 20th century Western classical music. I will also make sure the pieces stay challenging technically and if needed I will provide additional materials which will help the student to focus on the areas which need most work on. Though not usually covered in exam syllabi, I am happy to work alongside the student on pieces which do not necessarily fit into the Western classical canon, should they so wish. Playing and learning an instrument should primarily bring joy, and as a result inspire the student’s dedication to practice and foster a willingness to work hard. I believe in the importance of the relationship between teacher and student and as such provide the needed mental support and encouragement. I adopt an intuitive pupil-centred approach to learning that will best support their passion for making music. Attention to detail is paramount, and staying attuned to the needs of the student is always a priority. As such, I will adjust the tempo of the program to meet goals at a pace that is ideal for both the pupil’s ability and well-being.

Maths up to GCSE level, Classics (Latin, Ancient Greek) to A-level
Hi there! I am currently in my third year studying Classics at Oxford University, with extensive maths knowledge up to A-level and experience teaching abroad. I aim to provide flexible and focused lessons that are specifically tailored to the individual needs of the student. Once we’ve discussed the particular areas you’re finding challenging or want to work on, these tutorial sessions can be focused towards discussing particular concepts for better understanding and working through examples together, before moving on to practising exercises and past questions on your own to be marked. If you are working towards an exam, we will also go through exam techniques and effective revision methods, again to suit you! I offer regular feedback and like to set specific goals which students can work towards. If you have any questions or would like to see a proposed lesson plan please drop me a message and we can discuss it from there! Experience: - Currently reading Classics at Worcester College, Oxford, currently with a 2:1 equivalent after 2 years. - 12 A*s at GCSE, 3 As at A-level (Latin, Maths, English Literature). - 3 months teaching Maths and English in a Ghanaian combined primary and secondary school - I’ve had several years of work experience and always aspire to provide a professional, helpful and enjoyable service.

English Literature: Themes and Intertextuality in Literature, for Students and Adults
English Literature is an extremely important and, for many students, compulsory part of education. This class is about improving the skills needed for close, thematic reading of both old and more contemporary texts. Using overarching themes found across literature, as well as giving suggestions for other relevant texts, this class aims not only to help pass any exams, but to also enrich your understanding and appreciation of the subject. Outside of exams, especially for any adults, this class can be a more freeform discussion of novels or poetry for anyone who wants to enjoy literature on a deeper level but isn't quite sure where to start or what avenues of thought to explore.

Gabriel
French PhD Student at IMPERIAL COLLEGE gives MATH/PHYSICS tutoring
FRENCH VERSION BELOW ↧ ↧ Hello ! My name is Gabriel, I’m 23 years old and I’m a PhD Student in Artificial Intelligence and Neurosciences at Imperial College. I am offering private classes of Math and Physics for high school students and eventually undergrads. I can provide classes in both French and English. After obtaining my degree in engineering in one of the top French ‘Grandes Ecoles’, I started my PhD at Imperial in January 2021. I have a very solid background in Math, Physics and Computer Science. I can adapt to every student’s needs: strengthening and deepening of knowledge or reinforcement of the basics, help to homework and assignments or classes and methods. I have a strong experience in tutoring, I have been giving classes for the past 7 years during my studies in France, both as a tutor and a teaching assistant. I have always received amazing feedback and witnessed real progressions in my students. Due to the pandemic, I can give classes remotely . I do however feel like this may weaken a bit my abilities as a teacher and constitutes more of the same remote teaching that already poses so many troubles to kids during these times. I am open to giving classes in person if that is OK for you (I undergo regular testing as part of Imperial’s test scheme) I can come in person in the areas around South Kensington, Hammersmith and Fulham, and even further if the offer is adequate. Hope to see you very soon! Gabriel B. Bonjour! Je m’appelle Gabriel, j’ai 23 ans et je suis étudiant en thèse à Imperial College en Intelligence Artificielle et Neurosciences. Je propose des cours particuliers de Maths et Physique pour des élèves de collège, lycée et éventuellement en premières années d’études supérieures. Je peux donner des cours en Français ou en Anglais. J'ai obtenu un Bac S mention très bien puis effectué une classe préparatoire MPSI puis MP* au lycée Henri 4 avant d'intégrer l'école de Supaero. Je suis finalement venu à Londres pour commencer ma thèse en Janvier 2021 Je peux m'adapter à tous les besoins: approfondissement ou travail des bases du cours, aide aux devoirs et aux exercices ou cours et méthodes. Je possède une solide expérience dans le domaine car je donne des cours régulièrement depuis mes classes prépa. J’ai toujours reçu de très bons retours de mes élèves et pu constater de grandes améliorations dans leurs résultats scolaires. J'aide également mes frères et sœurs en classe de terminale et 3ème depuis longtemps. Avec la situation sanitaire actuelle, les cours peuvent être donnés à distance. Je craint cependant que cela ne diminue légèrement mes capacités d’enseignant. De plus de nombreux élèves se trouvent en difficulté actuellement à cause de l’absence d’enseignement présentiel et des cours en ligne pourraient renforcer ce constat. Je suis ouvert à la possibilité de venir en personne si cela vous convient (j’ai déjà eu la Covid il y a quelques mois à Paris et me fais tester régulièrement selon la politique d' Imperial) Les tarifs sont à pondérer en fonction de votre niveau et de votre situation géographique. Je peux me déplacer autour de South Kensington, Hammersmith and Fulham et éventuellement plus loin si l’offre est adéquate. A très bientôt j’espère ! Gabriel B.

11+ (Kent Test) Tuition for Both Students and Parents
The 11+ (or Kent Test as it is also known) can be a daunting prospect for both students and parents. However, as a trained teacher with years of experience in preparing students for the 11+, I am here to prove it can be really fun to study and there's no reason to feel overwhelmed.

Amanda
Qualified teacher of over 17 years tutoring engaging English, sociology, psychology and SEN lessons
I have always had a passion for education. This has left me in good stead to become a dedicated teacher driven to inspire students to achieve personal academic success. I specialise in English, Health and Social Care, Sociology, Psychology and Special Educational Needs. My particular strengths are an ability to work to pressurised deadlines and be flexible. I have a mature and conscientious teaching approach, which allows me to be innovative within the classroom. I believe in using various approaches to teaching, which facilitate the active participation of students and involve them fully in their group and individual learning. I have further enhanced my own capabilities as an educational practitioner and have grown and evolved considerably and have been graded 1 in lesson observations. Having moved from mainstream teaching to special needs, has enabled me to expand my skills and depth of knowledge within this area. Working with small groups and on a one-to-one basis has greatly emphasised the need for individual learning plans and the need for flexibility. During my teaching career, I have been involved in the training of trainee teachers. In each case, acting as a mentor and helping to support the development of skills of teaching and learning practice, whilst on placement. This experience also helped to develop my own teaching as it enabled the sharing of new ideas and good practice.
