I have a five years French degree in teaching languages and a three years degree in Spanish Language and Literature . I lived for 5 years in Spain. I also did my PGCE in 2002 and after completing the teaching period, decided it wasn't for me. I really like the privileged relationship the one-to-one tuition brings. I help the school students (GCSE, A Level, Baccalaureate etc.) to close the gap or excel in class, the adult to explore the language with all its diversity (structure and communication) and I also teach children with songs, enjoyable activities, it is also possible online.

Tabitha's last review in GCSE from Simon : Virgil Really helpful! We went through my essay and exam technique!
I am a qualified and experienced history teacher as well as A Level examiner/marker. I have taught students to the highest level, achieving grade 9s at GCSE and A*s at A Level, including those who have found elements of the subject challenging. I have also taught the coursework element of the A Level, with my marking being described as 'exemplary' by the moderators. History is a subject that everyone is able to succeed in and I believe in making the tasks seem as simple as possible, breaking down exam techniques into easy strategies and focusing on useful, relevant content. I have a Master's degree in history and am currently studying for a PhD, focusing on 17th Century England. I have experience of teaching the following topics: Edexcel GCSE: Cold War, Nazi Germany, Elizabeth, Crime and Punishment, Post-War Britain. Edexcel A Level: Stuart Britain, Elizabeth, Coursework. AQA A Level: Stuart Britain.
Thomas's last completed GCSE job with Isabelle: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter is sitting History GCSE, Edexcel, in June 2019 and has just sat her mocks achieving a grade 4. She would like to get to a grade 6 and needs some help please. Could we begin with a few lessons on exam technique - I don't think she has fully understood how to get each of the marks. Could she begin with the German history between the wars and then move onto medicine in Britain. Th e Elizabethan history and American West can come afterwards. May I book three classes to begin with?

Joshua 's last completed GCSE job with tamara: Occasional - gcse question help as being homeschooled
My tuition style is based on the recognition and understanding that each student has their own way of achieving their highest possible results. I fully recognise that in private tuition, the student does not have to compromise and can get the best tutor to suit their individual needs. I try to accommodate the very busy and restrictive schedules of both parents and students, including boarding school students and distance universities. My aim is always to try to help the students achieve their targets.

Tom's last review in GCSE from Carmen: Text based game creation in Python Still very impressed with his teaching skills and knowlwdge. Hes easy to understand and makes learning a joy.
I have worked in the commercial business world and gained experience before moving into my passion for teaching. I want to concentrate on turning students I Can't statements into I Can, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve they just need the correct guidance and that all important Mindset. Each student is different and gains the knowledge and understanding in different ways, as a tutor it is my job to find that way and release that potential.
My approach to teaching is to find the right method for the student. I believe each student has their own style of learning and we need to harness that style in order to succeed. I discuss the needs of the student and then assess the ability through a test. From the results I create a individual learning plan, using this plan we work together to find the best learning style ( practical, theory based, written, spoken, mix of styles) to turn the student from a knowledge and understanding into a expert and evaluator. I aim to have my students having a positive growth mindset and leave saying I Can do that!

Testimonial from an A level Geography student tutored on Spires.co, March 2019.
