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.
Marie's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Kashif: 1-2 hrs/week - Hi, I am looking for a Spanish tutor for my son who has just started Year 11.
Significant tutoring experience - tutoring has been my main job since 2012. I have experience teaching one-on-one in person and online, as well providing seminars, workshops, and coaching in schools and at public events.
I hope my experience in online tutoring has demonstrated that I am sufficiently organised and engaging, to provide an enjoyable distance-learning experience. Online teaching is an unusual medium - both distant and intimate at once. I hope that, over the years, I have learnt to strike a decent balance and provide strong online support.
Rhys's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Charlotte: 1-2 hrs/week - I would just like to consolidate my Spanish skills as language requires continuous practice.
I am currently teaching English and Spanish in different companies, language schools and the most renowned tuition agencies in London on a freelance basis and occasionally working as cover supervisor in some schools. I am familiar and experienced with all ages and GCSE and A-Level boards (Edexcel, OCR, AQA, iGGSE Cambridge, IB) and exams (DELE...)
I am flexible with my time. I understand how it feels to learn a language that is completely different from the one you are used to, so I can definitely empathise with your situation and create a learning environment that will hopefully make you feel more at ease.
I encourage students to solve their own problems by guiding them with leading questions as this reaffirms their understanding of the subject matter. This method allows them to apply the same knowledge to different questions as they answer a question using their own words rather than mine.
David's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Boris: 1-2 hrs/week -
I have been teaching languages for more than 15 years long and always improving and getting new ways and methods to teach.
Luiz's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Kate: Intensive - I need help in practising my Spanish oral exam (i.e. general conversation questions fluency, photocard and role play under timed conditions). Also, it would be very helpful for someone to mark my Spanish writing tasks. I am predicted a 7 (A) but really want an 8 (A*), but preferably a 9 (A**) as I want to do Spanish at A-Level. My exam board is AQA, and I am in Year 11, my GCSEs start in 5 weeks).
I have years of experience both tutoring and mentoring young people, and am now working as a chemistry teacher, so I have access to useful resources, across KS3, 4 and 5. This means I can ensure the right support to help students truly understand the topic and get the best grade possible.
I have tutored in person and online for over 10 years and receive great feedback with my students receiving mostly A*'s and A's. I believe that interacting and stimulation is the key to excellent tutoring.
I work mainly on perfecting exam techniques and how to answer the question for maximum marks. I have a lot of practice material and previous exam material.
I welcome inquiries from anyone who would like extra, on-going tuition, help with general revision or assignments, or preparation for exams.
I have experience with OCR, AQA and Edexcel syllabus.
Marie K's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Aneel: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter is in Year 11 and is struggling with verb tenses and content relating university and post-18 job life. In exams it's her reading and listening skills.
Having been tutored myself in the past, I understand what being in a pupil's shoes is like. From there I then started tutoring after having developed a passion in education and learning. I have since tutored children as young as five to adults from a wide range of ages. This means that not only have I learnt how to adapt my teaching from individual to individual but also to adapt my level of tutoring based on age and/or past experience in the subjects that I tutor.
The last student I tutored on Spires achieved an A at A level French.
Elodie's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Jon : 1-2 hrs/week - I have been learning Spanish via Duolingo for a year (about 50% complete) but want a tutor to help with listening and speaking. I'm learning for fun and I'm an adult so am not studying for exams - I would just like to be able to speak basic holiday spanish
I have a BA in philosophy with first-class honours from the University of York, and an MA from the University of Birmingham. A number of my papers have been published, and I was previously an editor of a philosophical journal.
I have been teaching for over four years. I am reliable, dedicated and professional. I have an exceptional history of helping students achieve success.
I am a professionally trained, passionate philosopher. I believe in helping students to achieve highly whilst also imparting some of what makes philosophy a wonderful subject. Despite what some people think, you absolutely can maximise both simultaneously. Learning should be fun and rewarding, but still results driven.
I have excellent communicative and interpersonal skills. Philosophy is hard, we will look at things together that some of the greatest minds of the last two and a half thousand years have struggled to grapple with, so although I can never make it easy, I can certainly make it easier. I want to help you appreciate the satisfaction of understanding and working with something that was originally very challenging.
Daniel's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Priti: Intensive - I want to learn Spanish to be able to converse whilst visiting Spain.
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 Spanish job with Boris: 1-2 hrs/week -
i have had lots of experience in tutoring which enables me to tailor my tutoring style to different levels and types. In secondary school I ran a Spanish club for lower school students. In sixth form I tutored primary school students in both french and Spanish which required a great deal of patience and enthusiasm. In sixth form I also tutored pupils in year 11 and 12 for GCSEs and AS levels which required a whole different set of skills to tutoring younger students! Such a variety of teaching experience means I am apt at dealing with language tutoring of all levels, as well as being able to be patient, understanding and helpful.
ABBIE's last completed GCSE Spanish job with Suzanne: 1-2_HOURS - She would like to get an A but probably unrealistic at this stage - looking at her other subjects though she is certainly capable. Probably a B is a more realistic goal. She has dyslexia and dyspraxia and gets extra time in exams.
