I like to make learning a language an enjoyable experience, whether that be French or English. I have been teaching languages and music for the last 9 years to people of all ages and levels, in countries including; Wales, London, Italy, France, Belgium, Morocco and Costa Rica. I believe it should be fun, fulfilling and mainly conversational, alongside the study of grammar, writing and reading. I have the ability to adjust my teaching method in order to suit the learner, as I believe everybody comes at languages from a different angle; some from an aural perspective and others from a more grammatical understanding. It is important for me to understand the learners' approach so I can help them fully immerse in the subject. I believe that languages are a vital skill in this global world today and would love to help you improve and work towards fluency in either French or English. I am happy to teach the basics as-well as the following examinations; IBDP, GCSE, A-level and University Degrees in both languages.
Music tutoring; I tutor Music GCSE and A.S/A-Level, piano grades 1-7, voice (jazz/pop), composition and music theory levels 1-8.
I believe ultimately the study of music should be fun and fulfilling and that the fundamental basics of music (e.g. scales/understanding of harmony & theory/listening skills/analytical skills) are required in order to progress with excellence. Musical examinations are not essential in order to be a great musician, but they do help one improve technique, precision and theory. GCSE and A-level music may well be necessary in order to study music at university level, particularly at music conservatoires. I consider music to be mainly about training the ear and playing with meaning and expression.
Jasmine's last completed GCSE Music job with Eileen: 1-2 hrs/week - Need help with set pieces
I have taught everything from music theory to English as far afield as New York and Madagascar, in classrooms, 1-to-1 and online. I have a Congratulatory First in Modern Languages from Oxford and have been tutoring a range of subjects for the last 9 years. I also have experience of living, working and studying in both France and Germany. Although my style of teaching is friendly and laid-back, I take immense pleasure from academic achievement and from inspiring others to achieve their academic goals.

I think I make a good tutor as I truly understand what it is like to come from an educational background that provides little help to be the best that you can be. I am a trained peer supporter so know how to listen to you effectively and actually understand the problems you face! I also do like english a lot, even if it can be a hard subject - I do really enjoy tasks such as close reading or proof reading!!

I have gathered extensive tutoring experience as a private Physics and Maths tutor in the Greater London area since 2014. I have tutored and prepared students from 11+ groups all the way to A levels, and have managed to specialise in the GCSE and A level curriculum. I am currently working for a VIP family in Dubai preparing their son for his A levels this year.
I have also gathered significant experience in the past while being a Mechanical Engineering Student at the Simón Bolívar University, in Venezuela, when I had the opportunity to tutor students in Maths as well as in Physics, as a preparation for their university entrance tests. I also helped younger promotions of students as well as fellow students of my own promotion at university, in order to gain a better preparation for evaluations in different engineering topics.
I have an excellent ability to communicate and connect with students of all Ages and I am able to mold my teaching so that everyone of my students internalises the topic. I am very passionate about teaching and I believe that with patience, the right focus on the details of the subject, as well as a general vision of it, and a dynamic comprehensive way of tutoring, you can tutor everyone till the extent of excellence. I am confident that my passion and experience are the qualities you are looking for.
Manfred 's last completed GCSE Music job with Ann-Marie: 1-2 hrs/week - I am seeking a GCSE Music tutor, for my daughter who is in year 11.
I have been teaching for over ten years, first starting as a violin and piano tutor in schools in London and progressing to becoming a classroom teaching assistant for the Music department of an inner-London school.
It was during this time that passion for teaching really materialised and I thoroughly enjoy communicating my commitment and passion to performing music to my students. One of my main focuses is making sure my students have a thorough theoretical knowledge of music so they are equipped with the tools for independent learning. This gives even the most timid of learners the confidence to pursue their goals, however big or small. I also like to focus on the psychology of performance, which is something I elected to study in detail at university. This is such an important skill, especially for younger learners and can make or break whether a student continues the learn and play their instrument in the longer-term.
Above all, I am friendly and motivating teacher, simply because I love my subject and therefore so do my students. I see the ability in everyone I teach, making lessons rewarding, from the beginner student to the advanced performer. I have full knowledge of both the ABRSM and Trinity exam boards, as well teaching to performing diploma level.
Rebecca's last completed GCSE Music job with Eileen: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter is struggling with the music theory elements of her upcoming GCSE Music exam.
I have been a private tutor for over five years. Teaching in a range of subjects up to GSCE level.
I specialise in 11+ and 13+ exams and have had past students go on to Wycombe Abbey, Eton, Royal Russell and Emanuel.
I also teach essay writing for different GCSE subjects and focus heavily on English literature and Language. My last student achieved all 9's in her mock GCSE exams before Christmas. I work on subject revision and how to revise effectively, how to structure essays for subjects like History and I also work through all aspects of science and maths up to GCSE level.
I have over 10 years experience working in schools and science centers. I have privately tutored students to GCSE level in the past with great success.
I am a driven individual who is dedicated to helping those students who want an Oxbridge place, for physics or engineering, to get one. I am no pushover. I will ask you challenging questions and make sure that you are outside of your intellectual comfort zone, to coerce from you your very best performance when it is needed.
