Hi, I am Mona, nice to meet you! I am a third year music student at the University of Edinburgh. I believe that music is powerful. It helps us to work through and express our emotions, as well as connect and communicate with others. I look forward to making music with you! Piano I have played the piano for over twelve years and I started giving piano lessons three years ago. I have taught children as young as five, as well as adults. I mainly play and teach Classical music, but also enjoy and teach minimalist music and film music repertoire. I also have an interest in and teach improvisation on the piano. Songwriting/Composition/Improvisation I use songwriting, composing and improvising daily to express myself. This is my favourite part of music - Expectations go by the wayside, we are in flow and in the present moment. I have taught improvisation to my piano students and I have collaborated with others in writing songs as well as composing. Music Theory/Music History I enjoy the academic and theoretical side of music, hence why I chose to pursue my music studies at University. I write music reviews and articles for the Student newspaper, and I am just starting to write for an online music blog. I continue to study and write about music for my academic studies and did so throughout school, so I can help you with your GCSE/A level music!

Trusted teacher: I have been working in the Adult Learning and Career Development sectors for more than 12 years, supporting people to grow and develop both personally and professionally. I have also worked in counselling settings with young people, adults and couples, as well as managing a mentoring project and undertaking academic proof-reading, and all these experiences inform my methods now. I blend a person-centred focus with a practical and structured approach to good effect. I believe that professional development goes hand-in-hand with increased understanding of self and others, also known as emotional intelligence. Understanding and valuing your own strengths and vulnerabilities helps you communicate more strongly and create more honest, productive relationships, both at home and at work, and can impact on your ability to make a convincing argument in written form as well. I am happy to meet you at your home, at my home or at another location convenient to us both, or we can work via webcam. I normally prepare tasks or concepts to consider between meetings, and always tailor the sessions to what you most need or want to get out of them. If you want a simple listening ear, that is fine - if you want someone to create a schedule to help you stick to goals, I can do that. We can decide between us what might best help you get where you want to in your life or career. The availability in the calendar below is just a guide, I can work around your schedule, so please feel free to ask about specific days or times.

This class is for anyone who wishes to learn German from someone with native level skills. Whether it is to learn the basics as a beginner or to hone essay-writing skills. Can comfortably adapt to any curriculum (IB, A-Level, GCSE). Alternatively, if desired, I can help develop more analytical literary skills and give guidance on how to study German Literature. In both cases, I prioritise verbal dialogue as well as writing tasks, particularly for more advanced levels. I am very flexible when it comes to the structure of lessons/their intensity and feel it is usually best to discuss this on an individual basis.

Trusted teacher: I teach Maths and Physics in one-to-one, small group - in person or online classes With the current one size fits all schooling model it's understandable that some of us find learning tedious. This is why I've invested a large portion of my time to learning about all the possible ways we can learn. Along the way, through many hours of tutoring and courses, I've learned how to utilize your learning strategy to work for you not against you. Now, I can confidently say, I know exactly what it takes to re-kinder the enthusiasm we all have for learning!

This class is for learning Spanish or English. I would teach you the skills you prefer to develope (oral or written skills). I focus also in the main fields of the langugage you are most interested in, as long as you need to improve a specific area. I have been teaching different ages, so I would prepare the lessons depending of your characteristics (from school homework until learning as a hobby). Learning a language is easy when you find a teacher who will adapt your requirements!

This course, divided into two different parts depending on the subject of interest (English or Greek/Ancient Greek), is for aspiring students to learn a language, support their arguments and express their ideas with clarity. The results of this effort are directed by the importance of communicating through language. The aim is to create a challenging learning environment, which will be anything but overwhelming. As a tutor, I specialise in the methodology of learning. My primary focus is on the ways through which students enjoy the learning process so that memorizing details and rules wouldn't be very difficult or uninspiring. Grammar is important, however, the method through which a student can get interested in it, is what matters the most. Homework will be assigned weekly, however, its role is of less importance compared to the actual attendance of the students during the course. Teamwork is the key to this beautiful door called 'learning a language'.

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.

Tutoring Spanish in an entertaining and interesting way is not an easy task but my goal is to achieve so. Giving students a challenge and facilitate their communication and writing skills is my main objective. They will enrich their vocabulary by talking and reading about a wide range of topics, each lesson will focus on one, and certainly, improve grammar and sentence construction. After each lesson homework will be given to keep up with the language and not forgetting it until the next one. If you want to give it a try I am convinced that at least you will have a nice time and learn something new.

Communication will be the most important when teaching because is the best way to learn a language is trying to speak it since the beginning. The activities will be designed and taught depending on student preferences. It will start with an introduction to Spanish and Spanish culture followed by a look at what the student wants to learn and how the lessons are going to be depending on what he is interested in. The lessons will consist of examples from real life that the student will try to put in practice after learnt it and after that, a few activities will be great to consolidate knowledge
Academy Profession Degree in Chemical and Biotechnical Science (BAAA Denmark) HND in Biological and Chemical Sciences (Coventry University) BSc Hons in Biomedical Science (Edinburgh Napier University) I am a huge science enthusiast with particular interests in data science, molecular biology and organic chemistry, additionally to my lab technician and research experience I have participated in teaching students a variety of scientific concepts, methods (e.g. at University of Warwick), so rest assured I will give my 100% to make sure that you overcome difficult topics with ease! I have been struggling with understanding plenty of scientific principles, such as molar calculations, the way the lactose operon works, or even DNA replication and I managed to get through it all. That makes me want to help you fellow students as well, as I strongly believe that if someone cannot explain something in plain English he doesn't understand it enough to teach!
