My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was working on my PhD, and never stopped! I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate dissertation.
I try and see things from the student’s point of view when explaining things. I think it is important to have a variety of activities in a tutorial, and for the tutor to be a good listener as well as good at communicating, prompting and explaining. I try to make tuition sessions an enjoyable as well as helpful experience. I like to encourage students to achieve the highest standards they can.
I am an experienced voice/acting coach & professional actress who has specialised in Shakespeare performance. I've performed and worked in the UK, USA and Australia for many years. I offer tools to develop a strong, flexible, effective and creative speaking voice and powerful communication skills. .
I take a professional and sympathetic approach to those with difficulties and to those wishing to maximise potential (e.g. Oxbridge entrance candidates). Personal contact fully backed up with all materials available in electronic format. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach Latin and Classical Civilisation from beginners to Oxbridge entrants - Tell me about your qualifications.
Welcome! A freelance tutor and singer, I give "Personal tuition in the right key". I can help you get the highest grades in exams, and study in the "key" that best suits you. Like the right song choices, I often inspire my students to succeed.
I believe that pupils truly excel when they are empowered to take control of their own learning. - Which subject(s) do you teach? Latin and Ancient Greek. My specialist interest is language work, although I also teach some literature. - Tell me about your qualifications.
My teaching methodology focusses on sculpting the approach to a student's personal learning style and strengths, and creates pride in personal progress. Lessons are structured around student-led learning and fun, interactive engagement with the topic. Working with students with learning disabilities has taught me to shape a learning environment to suit the particular needs of every single student.
I am an experienced and approachable tutor, who helps the ancient world come alive for students of all ages. If you are struggling with your current course or worried about upcoming exams, then please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
I offer tailored tutorial sessions which help to build self confidence. My patient and calm approach serves to ensure that students achieve the best results.
I am currently employed as both university lecturer for teacher training and a secondary school teacher. My role as university lecturer means I am responsible for assessing and training prospective history teachers. For 23 years I was Head of Department for History, Psychology and Classics, and to ensure my teaching remains up to date I still teach Years 7-13.
Hi, my name is Rabia Ahmed, I am currently a University student in English Language and Literature. This gives me the ability to teach secondary school students, preparing them for their GCSE English exams or general tutoring in English. I have studied both of these subjects as my A-Levels.
I approach teaching/tutoring grammar first, as the base of the language, and build on this with the students. I prefer to work through exercises with students, increasing their capabilities so they are able to tackle more complex passages of Latin or Greek. I also seek to give the students context surrounding the subject. (eg. author, time of the passage).
I hold a BA in Greek Philology and a MA in Classics. I have been tutoring for the past six years students of all key stages. I am dedicated and passionate about teaching and the success of my senior year students in the National Exams (equivalent to GCSE) certifies my skills and my professionalism.
I based my classes on each individual child. Some children learn best by rote and mini-tests, whereas others absorb information better through interactive activities. I change my teaching method based on each child to allow them to get the most out of my tutoring.
My teaching methodology considers the most recent studies on strategic and motivated learning, because I think that teachers should always be up-to-date on teaching techniques and they should have interdisciplinary skills. I believe that a solid base of grammar has to be built beside innovative and practical execises where communicative competence can be developed.
I can teach French from Primary school to A-level, focusing on grammar, redaction, literature or oral comprehension. I base my classes on a solid knowledge of the student; of his qualities and his difficulties. My classes are adapted to their personality and the issues they face.
Being a younger tutor I am able to relate to students and this stronger relationship will correlate with stronger results and outcomes. I work from the students appropriate specification using traditional methods of teaching to embed information into the long term memory. Coming for the award winning and best free school in Bradford; Dixons Trinity I have Picked up on expert methods.
Hi! My name is Harrie Lyons and I am 21 years old. I believe actions speak louder than words, so I have offered money back to any student not satisfied with their first lesson. So far I haven't had to give back anything! - Which subject(s) do you teach? Any humanities or essay based subject.
My teaching method is academic learning first the grammar , conjugaison , I base my classes on conversation , exercices , feed back , reading , text explanation , exploration , I approach each topic one by one , and make sure the student understand well before moving to another new subject
My teaching method is positive reinforcement on self-learning, I assist via prompting questions and encouraging independent learning by giving the tools and then catering the approach to the student, some students will very independently jump to an answer when given the materials, others need to be shown and others know answers but struggle with their methodology.
The key to succeeding in English is connecting to the work and understanding the elements of language. I therefore focus on strengthening analysis techniques while exposing students to a range of texts, encouraging them to find what speaks to them.
My name is Luise and I am a current English Literature graduate and GCSE English Intervention Support Worker from Leeds.
My teaching methods will be very easy and consist of tools that you need in the world as well as the exams. I will make the teaching fun and simple. Therefore, the things you never thought were simple, now seem simple.
I am an English and Creative Writing student at Coventry University and a bibliophile as well. Out of the passion for literature, I try and make it understandable to my pupils (usually between the ages of 13 and 16) and also interesting by showing them the deeper meaning of the literary texts and the various ways they can be interpreted.
I am a recent graduate with an MA in English Literary Studies and a BA in Ancient History and English. I undertook Creative Writing as part of my degree and can also offer guidance, editing and proofreading. I am willing to teach anyone with a genuine desire to learn and cater to GCSE level and above. However, I am also open to other enquiries on a case by case basis.
To an extent, getting good grades is a question of playing the game-- I can help you understand what the markers want to see.
Well aware of the current educational climate, I aim to provide lessons tailored precisely to the needs and learning styles of individuals.
I approach each lesson with the idea that every student is an individual in learning and the growth of a student takes time and structure unique to them. Learning should be fun and interactive and the understanding of knowledge comes from breaking down difficult texts and relating to the work personally and creatively.
In keeping with my Classical background, I am primarily a Socratic teacher: I see my role as to model the thought process that the student should internalise in order to think for herself. This means guiding the student to ask ever-deeper questions of the subject material, and to assess her own understanding.
My teaching methods include sitting with my students to discuss the work we are looking at, I believe in literature discussing the work out loud allows you to understand it better.
