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.
Sasha's last completed Music job with Jemima: 1-2_HOURS - I am looking to get an A-A* in A level from a current grade of C-B. I want to go onto take a music undergraduate at a Conservatoire to train for a career as an Opera singer, so I need to achieve this grade in the exam to stand a chance of being accepted. I am a hard worker but I'm finding it difficult to understand what's going on in class despite my efforts. I try to teach myself but I don't actually understand what I'm trying to learn which makes it kind of impossible! I would prefer a male tutor and I would like to spend a maximum of £40 per lesson.
I have 14 YEARS of TEACHING EXPERIENCE. This has encompassed ALL AGES (preschool to adults) and abilities (BEGINNER to POSTGRADUATE). Subjects I've taught are: GCSE & A Level (Music, Business Studies, Media Studies, Maths), British Primary School Curriculum (Maths, English), Admissions Tests (11+, 12+, 13+, 16+, SAT, GRE), American Elementary School Curriculum (Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, etc.), Preschool (Numeracy & Literacy), English proficiency tests (IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge YLE), Business English, Academic Writing/Composition & Presentations, English Conversation, Grammar, University & Job Applications, Project-Based Learning (PBL), Music Theory & Analysis, Improvisation & Jazz, Saxophone, & Piano. Additionally, I have worked in all kinds of SETTINGS at both public & private primary & secondary schools, universities, adult learning centres, cram schools, businesses, within the home (as a residential home school & a private tutor) and online (to students worldwide). In addition, I have served as the Head of English & PBL at a private elementary & junior high school, as the Academic Director of a test prep centre, and have provided educational consultancy & tutor training to Oxford's oldest tutorial college.
PHILLIPPA's last completed Music job with Matty: - Just want interview practice and preparation, exposure to new ideas and working from them, getting used to new concepts and being asked questions as well as more general interview practice
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.

Music job with Marco:
1-2 hrs/week - I'm writing my dissertation on the topic "The influence of Kanye West's album "808's & heartbreak" on popular music".
I'm not looking for someone to write my dissertation, I only need some guidance and help writing it. I'm from Germany and I've never written a dissertation before so I just want to talk through everything with a tutor, get some ideas how to best proceed and stay focused and then get feedback as I move along. I have to hand in my Dissertation on 30th July, so I have a bit more than 4 weeks left to write the dissertation. I think I'd like to have 1-2 lessons per week for the remaining time. I'm flexible time wise.
I've attached the brief for the dissertation
Please get back to me with a price proposal and your ideas on how to get along with this.
I look forward to hearing from you!
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.

Eleanor's last completed Music job with Sarah: Intensive - need help on music igcse
I am a CELTA-qualified teacher, English native speaker and Masters graduate with a broad range of teaching experience, including business English, teaching children and adults, exam preparation, intensive classes and project-based learning. I have taught various levels and class sizes and am skilled at adapting my methods to individual learners. In addition to English, I have taught French, German and Russian, all of which I speak at a C1/C2 level.
In a number of teaching roles, including my current one teaching adult refugees, I have gained experience with a wide range of learner groups and teaching approaches. Having worked sometimes with pre-set curricula but often with the freedom to design my own curriculum, I have built up experience in creating learning programmes that teach and assess material in an engaging, memorable and meaningful way. As a volunteer for online high school Sky School, where I've helped to build the 'English for Changemakers' module, I've gained an insight into how distance education works, what platforms are available for it, and how it can be made impactful for learners.
