I am a further education (post 16) sports lecturer. I have direct experience of teaching A level PE, and BTEC foundation and extended certificate/diploma in sport. I like to ensure students are provided with all the information required to fully understand the topic area. I set students exam style questions to ensure their newly acquired knowledge is applied.
One word: personalisation. We'll focus on what you need and what you want.
I have always nurtured a love for languages and different cultures. As a tutor, I am keen to pass my enthusiasm onto any prospective students, understanding that the lessons must be designed to your needs. I have experience and in depth knowledge of written English from my degree but my teaching philosophy focuses primarily on creating real-life speaking situations.
Having been an au pair 4 times, I am aware that patience is a key word, especially because French is one of the hardest language to learn. I first teach easy words (colours, animals, etc) and their pronunciation and then go onto actual spelling, vocabulary, rules..
I am truly passionate about languages and I am myself fluent in English, Spanish and Italian. My brain is a language center and my methods are easy to follow, integrating a variety of interactive materials to englobe all aspects of language learning. I adapt to my student and can cater for all levels and ambitions.
I have a BA (Hons) Drama and Literature, PGCE (Secondary English Teacher) - teaching KS3/4/5 (age 11 to 19). Taught in Comprenhensive mixed schools and currently teaching in Private School - English Language and English Literature - Head of English Department Department.
I always follow bibliography to my lessons: the structure and the progression designed for some editorial are very interesting to follow. This is because this kind of bibliography starts with elementary resources to fix a proper base, and it is increasing the difficulty gradually.
Having just finished uni, everything I've learned is still fresh in my mind and ready to be shared and explained to those who need a bit of help! Happy to have a chat about what kind of subject areas you would like to work on and tailor the lessons according to what you need. Easy going approach - can cover whatever topics you need including grammar, vocal, pronunciation, exam prep etc.
Having studied languages all my life, I am a true advocate of learning through speaking and conversation. Whilst grammar is an integral part of the French language and will not be ignored, speaking will be the main focus of the lessons. I am also happy to help with any problems you have encountered in school and going through homework you have been set as well.
Learning languages should be fun! That's why I tailor my lessons to each individual student. I want to know what you're interested in (be it sports, music, politics or whatever makes you tick), and I will build our lessons it.
I believe learning should be enjoyable and meaningful. I love teaching teenagers and young adults, especially at college/university level. My lessons are engaging and active because I love to have fun in the classroom and I believe this fosters learning. I am passionate about teaching English Language and can effectively teach across many levels.
I approach each topic of maths by accumulating student's knowledge in a positive and passionate manner and engage the students. I believe that it is important to give a background to each topic and then go onto the fundamentals to ensure that the students understand the full depths of a mathematical topic and the meaning of specific formulae and theorems.
I believe in learning through the mistakes as a methodology, so a big part of my lessons is normally a reciproque outcome. That is why I like to immerse my students in the language by sharing the lead of the lesson and encourage them to speak as much as they can until they feel confident with themselves constantly making mistakes as a part of the learning process.
My preferred teaching method would be either we both work through problems throughout the session where we workout the best way to approach the question.
I am a person who believes that each student should be taught according to their preferences. If you would like to be taught outdoors I do not mind, indoors as well I do not mind. I teach everything that is required to be taught but I start with the basics first before everything else. I mostly teach students who are sitting for A-level and IGCSE examinations.
My lessons are pupil lead meaning based on the pupils own wishes and aspirations for piano playing. For beginners, I teach through the ten fingers books to get the basics, then look at easy pieces that the pupil is interested in (such as christmas music or disney songs) before looking at grade 1 pieces.
For Aromatherapy Teaching my style is individualised and will run over a series of different topics week by week. I use visualisations, excerpts, healing philosophies and tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your Aromatherapy products / treatments / gifts / uses.
I believe in a compete body-mind-spirit-emotion approach. My goal is to help others reconnect to their inner embodied self and to the nature around them; listening deeply to the body and dropping out of the mind into inner knowing and silence. I like to empower others to connect to their own inner knowing and their own inner wisdom.
I tend to run tutoring sessions by introducing an idea or topic, running through a few example questions with the student before aiding them as they independently tackle some questions. I focus on tackling areas students are fining difficult or topics they haven't seen before.
I believe that each student learns in their own way. The most important thing is to recognise how to engage the student of all levels and hopefully inspire them to re-engage with their instrument on a regular basis. I have been teaching for many years and enjoy the discovery of music with my students, this leads to mutual and ongoing creativity between teacher and student.
I teach knowledge of philosophy and its tools of analytic thinking. I get my students to read an extract/paper and express the argument. In doing so I correct and thus train their level of structured argumentation, precision, and clarity of thought.
I have a PhD from the English Department at the University of Southampton and many years of experience teaching English literature, poetry and academic skills (research, writing, referencing, presentation skills, time management, digital resources) to BA and MA students.
Starting with the very basics and slowly learning the way to crack down the grammar and vocabulary is essential.
Each topic is approached differently and adjusted to your specific needs. In general, I start by introducing the subject in an attempt to depict its utility. Afterward follows a review of the theory step-by-step with logic coherence - here is where most of the questions will come up. Continuing, I proceed with getting our hands on some exercises.
I think the best way to learn is by practicing, I encourage people to have conversations. They can choose a topic and we will talk about that. I also feel reading is a good way to learn so also encourage people to bring books or newspapers they are interested in.
My teaching method is centered around understanding the principles of the TSA, particularly using worked examples from past papers. This helps the students develop an intuitive knowledge of what types of questions they will be asked and how to approach them.
My teaching method focuses on creating enjoyable activities that make language skills both easy to grasp and memorable. I can help with reading, writing, speaking, and grammar skills as well as look at culture of French and Spanish speaking countries, and will happily tailor the focus for each student based on their personal needs and goals.
My favorite teaching methodologies are Thinking Based Learning, and Cooperative Learning. methodologies that during my years of experience have brought me great satisfactions. In the conversation classes we agreed on a topic, and we developed it in different classes, deepening both in vocabulary, speech construction and argumentation.
I, like many young adults, had spent my entire life searching for happiness, but what I didn't realise was that I was looking in the wrong places! Have you ever said the words "I'll be happy when..." - I have a car. - I have graduated. - I have a job. - I have got a promotion. - I have earned more than '£xxxxxx' amount. - I have moved out. - I have purchased a house.
I begin with the knowledge of the level my students are currently based on, ie, grades and writing capability. From there onwards, it sets a good rooted foundation of the topics that may simply be revised over and topics that of which require a lot more attention towards.
