I've been teaching with Spires for over a year, and I've had several long- and short-term clients over this period. All my students have made highly encouraging progress and have given me very positive feedback.
Off Spires, I have a wide range of teaching experience, both paid and volunteering, in a variety of languages and to both adults and children. I am a CELTA-certified teacher of English to students of other languages, and have outstanding academic credentials (A* at A-level in English Literature and Distinction in both French and Italian in my Preliminary Examinations at Oxford).
I teach English, French and Italian literature and language, to both native English speakers and foreign learners. I encourage my students to be scrupulously accurate when it comes to the finer points of language and creative and imaginative when it comes to studying literature. I am happy to conduct lessons in English, French or Italian.
I have a detailed knowledge of the UCAS system, and of Oxford and Cambridge application procedures in particular. I'm happy to offer help with personal statements, interview practice and preparation for the MLAT or Cambridge MML admissions test and advice about written work to be submitted.
Jessica 's last completed A Level Italian job with Amelia : 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with sophisticated conversation. My exam is begins at the end of March, where my conversation will be marked on articles and a presentation.
I have been teaching languages for more than 15 years long and always improving and getting new ways and methods to teach.
I have more than four years experience in tutoring, both one to one and small groups.
I work at Kaplan International College where I teach Chemistry, maths and Statistics at Foundation level.
I have extensive experience in working with children, teenagers and adults.
I think that the role of a private tutor is to teach effectively a subject, develop self-confidence in the student and teach him/her to study in autonomy.

What you can expect from tutorials with me:
Concise, clear explanations: You will end each tutorial confident in your understanding of the topic. You will be able to answer related exam questions, apply concepts in coursework assignments and see how different topics fit in the greater picture.
A tailored program: Whether you want to spend time revising a particular topic, practicing exam questions or discussing a particular topic more in depth, tutorials will be designed to suit your needs.
An hands on approach: At the end of each tutorial, I will send you further material to practice and revise the material covered. Ahead of the following tutorial, I will then correct your work and provide useful feedback. This can take the form of written questions, past papers, programming assignments, etc.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Dario's last completed A Level Italian job with Owen: Over 2 hrs/week - I just need a little bit of backup with my italian A level. Grammar wise I’m absolutely fine though.
My love for foreign languages started when I was just a child. Therefore I decided to dedicate all my academic career to the study of languages. I attended a language high school where I studied English, French and German. I received full marks in each language included Italian.
After completing my high school, I started providing English and Italian tuition.
I completed my BA in Language Mediation specializing in English and German, where I also took exams such as Italian grammar and linguistics, Applied linguistics and the history of the Italian language.
After three years of studies, I got accepted at UCL with an unconditional offer and I pursued my Master of Arts in Translation and Linguistics.
I have been tutoring young students as well as adult learners and all my lessons are tailored in order to suit the student’s needs.

I have taught Italian, Latin and Classical Civilisation to A level for many years. I love my subjects and love helping students develop their understanding and grow in confidence.

I have been a tutor for over a year and I have considerable experience teaching students of all levels and I can easily adapt to the learning style of my tutees. My schedule is highly flexible, which allows me to make time for my tutees whenever they need me. I value my relationships with tutees highly, and I try to be a mentor and a friend to those who seek my support. I like to work with lesson plans and timelines, so that both I and my students can have a sense of directionality, where we were, where we are, and most importantly, where we are going!
I have taught Mathematics in schools and privately for more than 7 years. I am now a full-time private tutor and a qualified counsellor. I am also a examiner for Edexcel and I teach A Level Maths revision courses for Harrow School Enterprises.
By combining teaching skills, subject knowledge and experience as an examiner I have led my students to success in GCSE, A Level and Common Entrance Exams. I have also plenty of experience working with special needs.
I offer tuition primarily in econometrics and related quantitative methods, however I have experience tutoring undergraduates in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and uncertainty economics. I have over four years of tutoring experience; beginning in my final year of sixth form to the present day.
I tutor with the aim of helping students to not only understand but also enjoy the subjects in which they are struggling. The modules in which I specialize, principally econometrics and related quantitative methods, have very interesting real world applications; a beyond superficial understanding is crucial in allowing student to achieve high marks in their exams, but can only come about if the student finds genuine interest in the subject.
I have been tutoring for quite some time people of all ages - but mostly university students. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching Italian as an L2 to foreigners; during the course of my studies I had the opportunity to put into practice what I learned so far, through hours of shadowing and internship at Italian language and culture courses for foreigners offered at my university. I also furthered my training at La Dante in Cambridge (UK) where I taught small classes and one to one sessions - this gave me the opportunity to teach any kind of level.
