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 use a motivational approach to develop passion in students for their chosen subject, which helps them find a fresh understanding of the text. I strive to build an ongoing interest in the works of great writers so that coursework and test responses come much more naturally.
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.
My aim is to help you to improve your skills and confidence so that you get the best grade you can. I offer advice, tips and practice based on my teaching experience, plus plenty of friendly encouragement. I am most often asked to help with essay writing and exam technique.

I approach topics by encouraging tutees to take their own time on questions or tasks to start off with, and then, once a basic understanding of how the question or task should be approached is attained, I will slowly help them increase the speed and reliability with which they can do it.
I am an approachable tutor who will work with the individual needs of each student to ensure they get the best results possible and achieve their goals. I structure every lesson or class to make sure every student is fulfilling their individual potential.
I am currently employed as both university lecturer for teacher training and a secondary school teacher.

No two students are the same! I don't have a generic lesson plan that I use. Instead I meet students and draft a tutoring plan during our first meeting.

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.
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 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 have an organic approach to teaching, depending on the subject and the student. While it is important to guide a student and help them to perform to the best of their ability it is just as essential to pay close attention to the student's needs. - Which subject(s) do you teach? *Classics- Latin, Classical Civilisation, Ancient History and Ancient Greek.
I believe that through private, one to one tuition a student gains in confidence, and therefore begins to achieve their full potential. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach Latin, Ancient and Modern Greek, All Classical Civilisation Subjects and German. - Tell me about your qualifications.
I tailor my teaching based on how each student learns. I incorporate visuals and make learning enjoyable. Learning should not have to be boring. Rather, during the first session I will gage how each student prefers to learn and create a detailed, engaging and fun lesson plan that will benefit the student both intellectually and emotionally.
I base my lesson structure on a persons needs and learning style. Offering written and oral examples of work as well as fun examples and tests to motivate and inspire. I like to plan each students tutoring experience differently based on their own needs and requirements.

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.
My teaching method is I ask the students what they’ve been doing and build up from there, so if they’ve most comfortable with cue cards I’ll help improve upon them. Each topic I will do an overview for and if they can tick each one off we don’t need to do it in that much depth and we can focus on the things they are struggling with.
I like to focus on a text-based approach to Latin and Ancient Greek, building up knowledge of grammar and vocabulary while creating confidence in recognising these features and words in example passages.
My teaching methods vary depending on the subject and the student – see below: LATIN I teach Latin for beginners both in groups and on a one-to-one basis and am open to working with adults and children alike. My approach to teaching is very structured, as I like to teach the grammar very thoroughly.
I focus on using targeted exercises tailored to the student to work with and improve their skills. These exercises vary to suit each student; I can adapt to students over a variety of levels. I prefer to focus on a different area in each lesson, rather than trying to cram in many different skills at once.
I support students with a variety of SEN/ESOL needs with speaking, listening, reading and writing. I am friendly and enthusiastic with lots of fun games to keep learning exciting. I will tailor-make sessions for students depending on the level they are at.
