Pilates: Private 1-1 (online & in-person, Greater Manchester)
I’m a BASI-certified Mat Pilates teacher from Manchester, UK. I have my own studio on the edge of Salford, where I teach private & duo sessions in person, as well as online classes over Zoom. I also teach group in-person classes in the city centre. I’m deeply passionate about Pilates as a practice. I particularly love working with 1-1 clients over a period of time, so we can work collaboratively to develop their practice. There’s nothing better than helping a long-term client achieve their first Teaser, Open Leg Rocker Jackknife! I see Pilates teaching as a collaboration, and aim to guide people to move and engage with their body in a whole new way. In a typical private 1-1 session, we’ll begin with a chat about your background and aims. From there, we’ll begin to build a programme together that aims to develop your technique in a way that best suits your body. I love working with people from a variety of backgrounds including (but certainly not limited to): - sports people and fitness professionals looking to build complementary strength and mobility - complete beginners wanting to learn the foundations - people with injuries contraindications who want to learn Pilates in a way that can be adapted to their needs - people who have taken group classes but want to take things to the next level - experienced Pilates practitioners looking to practice the advanced work My teaching style is rigorous yet relaxed: through careful cueing, corrections and focus on precision, my aim is to help people move in the most effective way for their body. I like to challenge my clients, but do so in a way that is appropriate to the level of experience. That said, I do all of this low-pressure way, as I believe it should be enjoyable! With my attention solely on you, you can be assured that you’ll receive the right corrections to help you improve at a faster pace than you would in a group setting. My aim is for clients to leave my classes feeling energised, lengthened, stronger and brighter.

I consider myself a very organized and dynamic person so my lessons will response to that personality. I do not like to offer classes and book exercises, but rather a playful and entertaining teaching that develops meaningful learning. Personally I like to adapt the student's interests to the lessons, from my opinion this is the first link to achieve a good level in a second language, either trough (music, sports, TV shows, Netflix, etc.)

Flute and Piccolo lessons by Cathy Tsang's Flute Studio
Cathy started her music teaching career in 2015, and has been teaching students from beginner to grade 8, aged from 6 to 35 years old. She always welcomes students who wish to explore more about music, building up playing the flute as their hobby, as well as growing together with them as their role models. She feels very glad and blessed to be the teacher of her students, as well as being their sister, witnessing their growth and becoming a good friend to them. In the lesson, she would always love to play studies, and exercise, as well as play flute pieces and duets together with the students. To broaden their horizons, she would love to share different music recordings, as well as discuss the music together during the lesson. Cathy believes that it is essential for students to step out of the classroom to learn music, rather than just playing the flute. During years of teaching, she has encountered students taking different examination grades. Cathy understands the importance of choosing the pieces for students, she would love to demonstrate pieces and discuss the preferences with the students together. As the mode of having examinations has varied these years, she has already adapted to preparing students for the exams under different situations. Gladly, most of her students could attain merit or even distinction under her tutelage.

Georgina
Qualified Primary Teacher KS1 KS2 all subjects phonics
My Psychology degree and 9 years of experience working with children with Neuro-divergence and additional educational needs prior to teaching have significantly shaped my approach to teaching. I prioritise relationship building and trust with students and their caregivers. I am patient, kind, and incredibly encouraging but have high expectations. I work with students for them to also gain high expectations in themselves. This may happen in the first few sessions or may take a longer period of time depending on the student. I help students gain high expectations for themselves by initially giving tasks where they are guaranteed success, then celebrating and reflecting on this success and how they were able to use the skills taught and their effort to complete the task. This builds a persons confidence and significantly increases the likelihood of attempting more difficult tasks. This is heavily proven by research (and seen in my classroom daily) known as the “theory of self efficacy” and the “theory of planned behaviour”. If a person does not believe a task is within their capability, they are incredibly unlikely to even attempt it (No matter how much we believe they can do it). It is my job to SHOW students they can do it by designing tasks and lessons in a way that they feel challenged finish with pride in their achievements. When teaching new skills I will show them first, then we will complete a task together, then they will apply the skills independently. I will be constantly assessing as they work independently and provide support where necessary. The ultimate goal is to phase back my support until they are using the taught skills correctly, consistently, confidently and independently. Lessons will vary depending on students needs. If caregivers want to spend a percentage of the lesson to discuss, that will be agreed upon. If there are specific targets you want me to cover then we can dedicate time for you to tell me these expectations. If you would prefer me to assess your student and gage where the gaps are and plan accordingly, that is also ok. I would suggest an initial session to meet, and discuss goals. Some classes you may benefit from: -SATs Prep -Phonics -Reading (comprehension, vocabulary, inferencing, predictions, explaining, retrieval, sequencing, summarising, making links, authors intent) -Spelling -Grammar (or Spelling and grammar combined) -Maths -Maths (arithmetic) -Maths (Reasoning and Problem solving) -Target specific - has your teacher said there are targets you need to work on in various subjects? -Science -History -Geography -Psychology (GCSE, A Level) Is your child in secondary school but needs support in the foundation subjects such as reading, writing or maths? Reading and writing is an essential skills in secondary school for every subject. I can support your child to close the gap so they can access all subjects with their peers. Having worked in secondary schools before, I have seen how much students are required to read and write in all lessons, but there will not be opportunities to learn these fundamental skills at school. I welcome students of all ages (including adults) from all backgrounds and of all abilities. I look forward to meeting you soon and celebrating the amazing progress ahead!

RCA Graduate tutoring in Art & DesignFrom younger ages to portfolio support for art school.
I am an RCA MA Painting graduate, and I have a BA(Hons) degree in Fine Art from Westminster University, and a Foundation diploma in Art & Design from the University for the Creative Arts. I am a practicing artist based in London, specializing in painting, and I have been showing my work nationally and internationally. My recent solo show was at Class Reiss London, and I also had a solo presentation at Art Athina. My fascination with tutoring derives from my sensitivity around learning disabilities, something which is a recurring theme in my practice as I grew up as a dyslexic learner, as well as my educational experience of being part of leading academic UK institutions. Through my work as an art tutor I strive to inspire and support my students, offering insight to my experience as a RCA alumnus and to the professional life of an artist. I teach students of all ages, as I strongly believe that involvement with the arts is always eye opening and revealing, especially when this leads to a career in the arts through higher education. I can offer art lessons for younger children, involving introduction to creative techniques and idea development, mentoring and support with portfolio preparation to apply for art schools internationally  as well as tutoring on contextualizing your work through constructive and generative feedback.

Traditional clay modelling techniques - sculpture classes
In these lessons / course I will introduce you to the basics of traditional clay modelling. Starting from understanding proportions, measuring 3-dimensional objects and building a strong armature using wood and wire to carefully examining and transferring the shapes of the model into your own clay reproduction. Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin have been studying the sculptures of their predecessors the same way and have been a great influence on my own work, and that is why I want to pass this knowledge on. In these lessons, you will also acquire some knowledge of the use of power-tools necessary to make the armatures.
