About the lesson

I’m passionate about Maths! When I’m teaching this subject, my aim is to motivate the students to find and explore the fun in every activity - specially when they are preparing for their final exams - as it helps them to relax, this way improving their ability to focus. As a teacher, I try to think outside the box, planning every lesson according to my student’s preferences and learning style.

I am a qualified Performing Arts teacher who has also been teaching Maths in private tuitions for more than 25 years. I have also been teaching students with learning difficulties and disabilities in Further Education in London since 2006 and consider my experience as a Drama & Dance teacher very valuable while teaching Maths, as it allows me to explore alternative teaching approaches that cater for all learning styles.

- How much do you charge?

I usually charge £35 per hour/lesson for online teaching.

I offer the first 30 min lesson (a consultation and taster) - free of charge.

- Where do you teach?

At present moment I am only teaching online, usually on Zoom.

- When are you available?

I am now available during evening times from Monday to Thursday and day times on Friday and Saturday. I am also usually available during 3-4 weeks in the Summer break.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach adults (Portuguese, Maths and English/ESOL) and children from Key Stage 3 to GCSE (Maths).

When teaching individuals within the Autism Spectrum, I usually request the presence of the parent/carer during the session, specially in the beginning, in order to establish a good communication and interaction system.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have been successfully using Zoom and could also use FaceTime or Skype for tutoring online, if that’s the student’s preference.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Maths - For a few years now, I have been teaching a 12 years old student who needed help to improve his Maths results at school. Although he loves most of Maths' topics and is very dedicated to his studies, he needed specialist support to improve his attention skills and confidence. Along the last 2 years, having had weekly tuitions, he has significantly improved his results, which has helped him feel more confident and motivated and the parents are also very happy with his progress.

Brazilian Portuguese - I have been teaching in private tuitions and also in language schools, usually for adult learners. For a few years, starting in 2015, I taught a student who owns a company where most of the employees are Portuguese or Brazilian. Although he started learning Portuguese language because he wanted to be able to communicate more efficiently with them, the lessons also became a very pleasant pastime after he developed confidence in his language skills. It was a pleasure to witness the student's progress.

About Emilia

I am a qualified Performing Arts teacher who has also been teaching Maths in private tuitions for more than 25 years. I have been teaching students with learning difficulties and disabilities in Further Education in London since 2006 and consider my experience as an Arts teacher very valuable while teaching Maths, as it allows me to explore alternative teaching approaches that cater for all learning styles. I plan every lesson considering the student’s Individual needs and expectations.

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have more than 25 years experience in teaching Performing Arts in Primary and Secondary Schools. Since moving to London in 1998, I have been teaching in Special Needs Education (Secondary Schools) and Inclusive Learning (Furher Education). My last/present position is Lecturer in the Inclusive Learning Department at the Ealing, West London & Hammersmith College, working with learners within the Autism Spectrum, Down Syndrome and PMLD.

As a native Brazilian/Italian and qualified language teacher, I have bee teaching Portuguese as a Foreign Language in London, in Language schools such as Língua Direta and BERLITZ, as well as in private tuition to individuals and companies since 1998. I have also been preparing students for the GCSE and A Level Portuguese.

As a Yoga Practitioner with more than 25 years experience, I started teaching Yoga during the 7 years working with young adults within the Autism Spectrum for the National Autistic Society and have continued doing so until the present in association with Yoga4Autism.

Before choosing to graduate in Performing Arts - Teaching Qualification - in Brazil, I had completed 3 years studying at the Faculty of Mathematics and Geology and at that time I started working as a Maths tutor, preparing students for the exams required to enter university. For that reason I feel confident teaching Maths. Since moving to London, where I have been teaching Dance and also carried on teaching Maths in private tuition, I have always felt very motivated to think out of the box while exploring the most effective teaching techniques for the different learning styles - specially the kinaesthetic - in order to provide a unique experience for every one of my students.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I have an updated DBS Certificate. I have the subscription to the DBS Certificate – Update Service renewed every year.
