Trusted teacher: I am an experienced and passionate teacher of Italian for foreign speakers. I studied Italian, Latin and Greek philosophy and literature, and I have a MSc in Psychology (first- class honours with distinction) gained in Italy as well. As such, you only need to clarify your final objective and I will take care of the rest. I will conduct an assessment, draw a learning plan and make sure you have bite-sized study sessions that will suit your schedule. Lessons will be structured around your learning needs, preference and abilities helping you achieve your goal of becoming an Italian speaker. Please note that I cover many London areas - just contact me to get further info on location, tailored packages and deals.
ONE TO ONE You come to my home or we can meet ‘on-line’ as I can offer fully Skyped facilities with webcam visual contact. You will make fast progress, not only because the lessons are intensive and tailored to your needs and as sole student, there is no one to hold you back. You will receive structured homework to increase your progress. This can account for up to 20% of overall learning. I assess and aim to cater for your needs, whether beginner, intermediate or advanced level. GROUP ‘EXAM BUSTING’ SESSIONS Several students learning together is a most effective way of bringing an added dimension to the class. Students in partnership often form a strong bond, motivating each other, and working well together. Six is my suggested maximum as it is vital to keep the tuition as intensive as possible. We practice written, listening and oral exam papers and can also iron out any grammar or vocabulary issues that are relevant to the particular exam at the appropriate level. MY APPROACH TO TUTORING I carefully assess where my students have gaps in their knowledge and then build on closing them through grammar and vocabulary. I therefore give my students the building blocks to create their own sentences in writing and speech. I work with their text books but also provide my own material to make lessons more interesting. I also use interactive material as well as focussing on past papers and oral exams to help gain confidence in the language. I engage well with all my students and make the lessons enjoyable and less like an extension of school. My conversation classes with adults are always fast-paced and fun, and my students very quickly widen their vocabulary and gain confidence in the new language.
I am a postgraduate (MSc) economics student based in Kingston, a native French and German speaker from the G-D of Luxembourg. I am a passionate and patient polyglot tutor dedicated to helping students. Classes I tutor: German and French primary education and secondary education and economics related topics for secondary education and higher education. Furthermore specific tutoring for accounting and Dactylography (10 finger keyboard typing) My first priority is to make sure that scholars have a clear understanding of the core skills needed to satisfy the requirements of the exam methodology. Fundamental requirements for French, German and other essay subjects, these include: - a solid understanding of how to argue coherently and use evidence convincingly; - a good command of grammar and syntax; - confident use of a diverse and technical vocabulary; - the ability to plan, structure, and write essays that score high marks efficiently. I believe in making the process of learning to read, write, and think one which is enjoyable, satisfying, and challenging in equal measure. Note: I am also accepting 2 students at same time.

Ekaterina - Kingston upon Thames£28
Trusted teacher: Hello Everyone, I was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and moved to the UK in 2018. I have been teaching English for more than 10 years. In 2008 I got a degree in teaching and since then I've helped various students to pass their state exams and generally get better at speaking English. I've worked in Petersburg cadet corps and in a language school the English express where I taught both teenagers and adults of different levels starting from the beginner to upper-intermediate. At my classes I love coaching my students through talking to them about interesting topics and setting challenging tasks and ambitious goals for them. I really enjoy setting stretching targets for my students and helping them achieve their goals whether it is working abroad, moving to an English or Russian-speaking country or exams. The most important thing for me as a teacher is to see my students speak. When we do speaking exercises, I usually write my students’ mistakes down in order to discuss them later. This way of correcting mistakes makes my students more relaxed because they are not interrupted while they are speaking. Over the years I have developed and fine tuned my own 9 point plan to make our classes more effective. The 9 point plan includes: • Speaking the language you learn every lesson • Listening to engaging audio materials • Learning how practical grammar works and how locals use it • Expanding vocabulary every lesson • Learning correct sentence building • Reading fluently and confidently • Learning how to communicate the way that locals do • Learning to pronounce like the locals • Building confidence in all the above using discussions and role-plays

Trusted teacher: An innovative, creative and inspiring Qualified Languages Teacher and Translator of Italian, Spanish, English and Romanian. With a variegated ten-year working experience in different contexts, countries and with multicultural groups of students, I aim to offer a first-hand experience of what exactly speaking, thinking and reacting in a new language means. With excellent results, I fully exploit the potential of authentic materials (songs, short films, films, books, newspaper articles, literature) and drama techniques, which I had the opportunity to deeply research at the Institute of Education - University of London, and subsequently put into practice in the London schools for which I worked. My lessons are always student-centred, interactive, stimulating and related to real life, cultural situations and/or to exam requirements (GCSE, A-levels, International Baccalaureate, IELTS, TEFL, PLIDA, CELI), according to my students' needs. I place high value on mutual respect, cooperation and active participation, the use of humour and imagination.

Intermediate spoken English is sufficient, no fluent spoken language is required! Pupils in age 14-16 – public school enrolment are required or Adults who are in the government-funded adult education program. And Native UK citizens with any background. . I follow the official AQA guide and specs on my classes with interesting, well-explained examples, easy to understand mathematical rules. My aim is help to understand why and how numbers behave as they do. I am also able to teach EDEXCEL and OCR. If the agreed study plan will be followed, I can guarantee a 7+ (A, A* or A** ) grade no matter the previous knowledge or study background. Age groups, I am teaching: Under 18 (agreement with parents and teaching at the parent's location ONLY): - Post-K3 test 14-16 years old who are actively studying GCSE first or second year - bright-minded pre-K3 pupils considered. - 16+ re-sit GCSE preparation, review and knowledge boost with the extra short time frame as well - even within 1-2 months. - 16+ GCSE - A-Level Bridge.

My classes are not about repetitive, boring and unrealistic example problems or endless formulae memorizing. The most important part of tuition is to support and guide teenagers and adults on the path of understanding mathematics with well-explained rules and interesting problems to solve together. Why my classes are different? - My classes are student-centered and never forced by time and the teaching materials. I can quickly reveal the focus areas that we need to spend more time with, but it is always my student’s decision how much time they wish to sacrifice for a specific topic. - You do not need to memorize formulas! Every single formulae which are not in the provided booklet will be explained from the absolute base. It is not about memorizing things but understands them. - I always awake my student’s interest in the topic first. I come from a country where Mathematics has been taught on the ‘Asian’ way, so I know where ‘hateful mind grinding hours of unsuccessful studying’ roots from and I can avoid the pitfalls of a boring class. - I make sure a bespoke, tailored, student-centric teaching method and specification will be applied. - I have an unlimited source of maths sample problems from different aspects of our life: economy, information technology, architecture, daily decision making, etc. I always want to be sure of the problems that my students spend time with are more than just ‘dry maths’, they are always real-life examples that teach the students to skills in their future life.

I am a teacher with free time on weekdays in the morning, afternoon or the evening. - I provide all the required materials to start your studying: student book, printouts, notebooks, maths tools, writing tools. You do not need to invest a penny into any physical, the only and most important is your time and attention.

Elise - Écublens, Switzerland£51
Trusted teacher: French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: the goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Emma - Rome, Italy£21
Trusted teacher: - I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills.

For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.
