Christiane

Professional: PTls teaching qual & management (2002)
one basis and also in small groups. This has proven to be one of the most rewarding experiences in my life as I have succeeded in helping so many people achieve their goals in French, German and English. Learn at your own pace and enjoy learning a foreign language what I always aim to do is ensuring my students enjoy their experience and enjoy learning the language. I aim to teach the way suitable to...

Frances

PGCE: PGCE (distinction) (1975)
my fluency and up-to-date knowledge of both languages by reading a lot. As well as the above I am currently tutoring students in French (Beginners and GCSE level) and in German (beginners through to A level) and have done some EFL teaching. I believe the key to successful langauge learning is the building block approach - it is crucial to understand one thing before moving on. Motivation comes through success. Lots of practice, both oral...

Paula

Masters: Communication Science and Media Studies (1999)
boost her GCSE grade. Paula's resources, approach and interaction were excellent and Paula was able to assess areas of weakness quickly and accurately and tailor the tutoring accordingly. She has a great teaching style which gives the pupil confidence in their ability and my daughter felt able to tackle aspects of the GCSE exam, which had previously caused problems by referring to the learning strategies that Paula had shown her. I have absolutely no hesitation...
Federica

Federica

Doctorate: PhD in Foreign Languages and Literature (2007)
productive and pleasant lessons. I have a very caring approach, esp. with young and very young learners, and I periodically discuss my students' progress with them (or their parents) to set new targets and challenges and to make the learning process as structured and fun at the same time as possible. My students have always praised my passion, dedication, commitment, professionalism, respect, friendliness and ability to build rapport and understand them, as well as my...
Jeff

Jeff

PGCE: English & Spanish (1993)
This approach appears to be successful, and I can provide references. I would say that my personal style is open and honest, and I encourage my students to learn from their mistakes, rather than chastising them. However, in order to make real progress the tutee has to do her/his homework to reinforce this, and I make this a clear condition of my tutoring. As I mentioned above, my success rate was 100% last year. If...
Robin

Robin

PGCE: QTS (Cert. Ed.) (1974)
of a mentor to me, once answered a question about methods of teaching reading by saying that there are as many methods as there are children. I have never forgotten that. My current clients range from schoolchildren battling with learning disabilities, through Oxford and Cambridge applicants, from adults beginners to some with post-graduate degrees. The quest for creative, individual solutions to educational problems affords me tremendous stimulation, and my students do well, whether they are...
Birgit

Birgit

Masters: MA Interpreting and Translation (2012)
their first steps in both languages. I care about clarity, accuracy and enjoyment. Using a range of techniques I cater for different needs and learning styles. Increasing learner confidence and fluency is very important to me, but I can equally deliver secure foundations in grammar and linguistic insight at expert level. Whatever the content and approach, the environment is always relaxed and friendly. Be prepared to work in new ways and with plenty of cultural...

Linda

Masters: Études françaises (1999)
enjoy what they are learning! I believe in a learner-centered approach, which allows students to play an active role in the learning process. Everyone learns a little differently, so I try to understand a learner's particular style in order to to tailor lessons and activities to that student's needs. My objective is to give students the tools and strategies they need to be able to learn and study effectively. It is important to develop and...

Felicity

Masters: Masters Degree in Performance (2004)
This included teaching students on a one-to-one basis. I have also facilitated drama workshops. As an actor and experienced teacher, my approach to tutoring is hands-on, encouraging discussion in a tutorial instead of just rote, formulaic teaching. I believe students who enjoy their lessons learn more and therefore I endeavour to make study flexible and relaxed. My Masters focused on different methods of learning, so I understand that students study in very individual ways and...

Maria

Bachelors: B.A.(Hons) Philosophy, Politics & Philosophy (1999)
and activities, e.g. games, role plays, laying emphasis on learning for communication purposes. My aim is to help students develop their ability to use the language effectively in everyday situations whilst providing them with a solid foundation in the grammar so that they can produce their own language independently. For me one of the most gratifying aspects of tutoring is to see how much students benefit from it and appreciate your one-to-one input, and how...
