Trusted teacher: I have 4 years' experience as a teacher of languages with the prestigious British Council in Egypt, Qatar and Mexico. I studied Spanish at secondary school, during my first year at the University of Cambridge and again when I lived in Mexico City. I took the DELE official diploma of Spanish as a foreign language issued on behalf of the Spanish government at the C2 (native-like) level in December 2019. Every lesson of mine includes some vocabulary work, because it is easy to get lazy and not record the new words we hear and understand, but active vocabulary study is essential for continual growth. I encourage learners to do as many written grammar exercises as they can outside of the classroom, so that classroom time can be dedicated to valuable conversation practice. I help learners use technology to improve their memory and learn more quickly.
Classes will be tailored for every student, according to his/her needs and interests. Either you want to take up Spanish for the first time or you already have a certain level of proficiency in the language, the classes will be as interactive as possible, with the student deciding what is more convenient to his/her way of learning. Homework will be assigned every week in order to revise the content already given, along with a weekly report of the progress made. If these classes are used as support for school or to achieve any kind of certification, I am willing to adapt to their pace, content and structure instead of giving additional content. My aim is to create a relaxed environment where the student can practice his/her Spanish skills without feeling overwhelmed nor under pressure. The workload will not interfere in any case with his/her current studies, and the homework assignments and schedule for the classes will always be flexible.
Learn how to speak clearly and to pronounce in English (also Spanish & Swedish languages) and gain confidence in speaking English. Students of any level of English studies will require help to develop the correct pronunciation especially if you don't live in an English speaking country. I will help you correct your accent and improve your spoken English so you can speak with confidence! I specialise in helping Spanish natives to speak English but students from all over the world are welcome.
This class is for pupils facing challenges with maths concepts that are preventing progress. We will identify any misconceptions that are preventing successful progression in learning and rebuild the foundational ideas that are necessary in order to ensure success!

Overview: I offer bespoke tutoring services to school pupils and individuals studying History, Politics, and English. With a background in History and experience in the teaching and media sectors, I provide a professional, insightful, and comprehensive service aimed at improving a client's understanding of a topic, their confidence within it, and targeting specific issues and skills as required. I also provide advice on university selection and applications, building on experience as an applicant myself and coach for successful applicants to highly selective universities (including Oxford, St Andrews, and UCL). Teaching methodology: I believe that the best way to teach is to communicate, work out the student's needs with them, and proceed from there. We live in a diverse world, and it's important to reflect that diversity in teaching. I believe in using a variety of sources to help teach, ranging from films, to books, to music clips. This is particularly important in the context of clients with LS needs, as a focus on one kind of source can impact the pupil's experience,and hinder their success. My lessons are based on a core Learning Objective, changing from lesson to lesson with the curriculum. Around that, there will be a series of case studies, examples, and anecdotes, with personalised support for exam answers if required. Half the battle with the humanities is ensuring that good ideas are communicated well- I seek to teach history and support the development of those communication skills to ensure that the pupil's ability is reflected.

I can tutor French to anyone who has an intermediate level in French as I will be explaining everything in my mothertongue. I can also try to explain by speaking English, but I am not bilingual yet so it would be better if you already have a level in French! I design each class according to YOUR personal needs. I generally focus on grammar, because to me it's one of the most important points when learning a new language. If you are really interested in the language itself, I can also teach you certain locutions that even native speakers use wrong! Teaching is one a of passions, so I will be glad to answer any questions from the meaning of a word to French expressions

Trusted teacher: I can offer beginner's lessons in piano and keyboard to adults or children, this includes both playing and reading music - happy to work with anyone who is keen to learn to play the keyboard or read musical notation! Normally this will be for one lesson per week, with clear direction for practice at home between lessons given - the more you play the quicker you learn (and the more nimble your fingers become!). I can offer lessons in my home in the Meadowbank area of Edinburgh, or travel to you if you have a piano at home. I can also work around your schedule - the availability below is just an illustration, so please feel free to ask about other times or days.

The way seeds are arranged in fruits, the stripes on tigers and zebras, the hexagonal shapes of honeycombs and snowflakes, and every night, the stars appear to revolve in circular arcs centred on the Pole Star...in mathematics we seek generalities. We’re unimpressed by one triangle whose angles add up to 180 degrees, but we find it striking that the same is true of any triangle. When seeking generalities, it helps to have a lot of examples because then you can compare and contrast and try to extract the essence of whatever it is you are seeking. From “1 apple + 1 apple = 2 apples,” all the way to partial derivatives and multiple integrals, this course is designed for kids who are just encountering maths for the first time, for students studying A-levels, and for people who are thinking of going back to education and now find maths interesting. Mathematics is like an ocean, it can be scary and intimidating when the first wave hits you. But once you go in a little deeper and if you learn it properly, it can become peaceful. I would therefore like to help you develop your mathematical knowledge, in part through solving problems, evaluating outcomes, make and use connections between different parts of mathematics, model situations mathematically and express results using a range of formal mathematical representations. In studying maths, you will become a student of the universe and you will be able to peek into the deeper truths about reality.

Trusted teacher: I am studying Social Anthropology and Politics at the University of Edinburgh. Classics are one of the biggest interests of mine; I started studying Latin and Ancient Greek languages and literature 6 years ago and I have been teaching for three years. I think studying these languages led me to be more aware of who I am as well as understand what is really worth. Latin (Ancient greek too) lessons consist of two different parts: grammar and literature. By studying grammar you are not going to just receive boring notions about the structure of the language, but you are going to deepen processes and rules that form Latin; with this method we are going to discuss about Latin and Greek mindset and then discuss about important themes studied by ancient people in literature. Furthermore, according to your needs and goals, we can exercise on translation of texts.
