Edward
Maths and Economics Tutor. I want to help students achieve top grades!
I specialise in tutoring Economics and Mathematics at all school level exams. My goal goes beyond help students to achieve higher grades and in the process make it more enjoyable. I specialised in Economics and Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, achieving a 2:1 in my degree. I achieved 10A*s & 1A at GCSE level and 3A*s & 1A at A Level (Mathematics (A*), Further Mathematics (A*), Economics (A*) & Geography (A)). Despite this success I really struggled with academia prior to my GCSEs and absolutely hated revision/exams! I think this view was compounded by my dyslexia. However my track record shows that I have been able to overcome these challenges through what I think is a really effective learning method! During sessions I will work through the theory, ensuring that it is well understood. Following the sessions I will assign homework, which will be used to map progress. I also want to actively engage in the students lives, as I provide mentorship!

Almasa
English language classes for students, kids and adults
Hi, my name is Almasa. I hold BA of English language and literature, besides that, I hold TEFL-TESOL certificate for 120 teaching hours from European Center for Education. I worked as an English teacher for three years, and during that period of time I worked with diverse students, starting from kids to adults. Therefore I can teach any age. Right now I work at Bahcesehir Koleji in Istanbul. I believe that the key to good teaching is to make any topic or material comprehensive, dividing it into smaller units.

Cryptocurrency investing for beginners (from level 0)
Investing in cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum etc) is an activity that can allow you to have extra income every month with very little time invested in it (you can easily do it just a few days a month, and after working hours) However, the amount of information online on how to start this activity can be overwhelming and confusing. Since I have been investing in crypto for 5 years, and achieved financial freedom through it, I can show you the basics and also the systems I constantly use to create a long-term profitable portfolio, while getting weekly, compounded, passive income in the meanwhile. Just some of the topics we'll cover, that we'll give you confidence on your long-term investments: - What is Bitcoin? - What is the blockchain? - What is Ethereum? - Other key cryptocurrencies - Some examples - Where can i learn more on my own (top non-biased media resources i used for the last 5 years)? - Where can i buy and sell cryptocurrencies? - Why does Bitcoin go up massively every 4 years? - How does the market REALLY work? - - How can I create a long-term portfolio with just a little bit of time invested every week? (explained step-by-step) - When should i buy and sell my cryptocurrencies? (personal opinion) Also, if you have ANY doubts in between classes, i will give you my contact details and reply to you within 24h Give it a try and I promise you will love it :) *The Services Offered are NOT Financial Advice*

Corinne
English: pronunciation (British or American) or conversation
I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.
