Samantha's last completed TOEFL job with Bruna: Occasional - I need to improve my Toefl score in the writing section. For the last two tests I scored 21 and 20, respectively. I need to score 25 of 30. My hours are flexible, but I prefer during week days, in the morning or early afternoon. My next test is Aug 3rd. Cheers.
I have been teaching English online for over 12 years, as first started in January 2007 and also first offline in 1996, so have taught very many students in that time - I am well used to online teaching requirements.
I have helped many students online to achieve their goals, for the IELTS exam, business English and general English - I was born in the UK and have a standard UK accent and in addition, I am a grammar specialist.
I am a trained language coach and have studied how to keep students calm in my classes. Being happy allows them to learn faster. Because I am patient and kind, I can give constructive feedback without any judgement, and my students receive the feedback they need without feeling criticised. They respond by engaging in the lessons more, looking forward to them and performing at a higher level. I am efficient. I do not limit myself to standard coursework and books where a student will repeat things they already know and feel dissatisfied. Because I have studied languages myself, I have first-hand experience of this, and I avoid it for my students. I tailor my classes to each student and their particular needs.
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.
I have worked as a professional tutor and educational consultant for six years. I have taught dozens of students for thousands of hours in total. I have also worked as a teacher in an independent school in North London.
I have had many successful students; a few examples include:
>Two admitted to study HSPS at Cambridge.
>One admitted to all three of Westminster, Winchester, and St.Paul's for 13+.
>One who gained 84/84 marks in his A-Level Politics Paper 2, which is now being used as an exemplar.
>One who gained an A in A-Level History after being predicted a C.
I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.
I have been tutoring for over 20 years and was Head of Department and teacher of English in a leading online school for ten years. I have taught all aspects of English Language and Literature from providing assistance at undergraduate level, through A Levels and GCSEs, down to KS1. What I love about tutoring one-to-one is the building up of a personal relationship with a student and seeing them gain confidence and develop. Every student is different and learns in a different way, and I have a firm belief that, given the right teacher, everyone can do really well in English. I have also taught History to GCSE and KS3 and run Drama groups, and have participated in additional tutoring for LAMDA.
I have 2 TEFL certificates and have tutored for IELTS/TOEFL/C2 as well as having taught practical conversational English to mixed age/ability groups.
I am ambitious for my students and my lessons are intensive, refreshing and tailored very specifically to your needs.
I do exam preparation for IELTS and TOEFL.
If you are looking for help with English language and literature or French GCSE/IGCSE/IB/A level and Higher Level IB I have the experience and skills you need and an enhanced DBS.
My subjects are:
English as a Foreign Language
French Ab Initio to A level and Higher Level Diploma
English language and literature to A level or IB Higher level
I teach in both the private and the state sector in the UK and to international students of all ages and levels and enjoy the experience of seeing very young children, teenagers and adults making tangible progress in their French and English.
My degree is a BA Hons in French Language and Literature from London University and I have Qualified Teacher Status and TESOL qualifications.

Dorcas's last review in TOEFL from Bruna: Toefl Writing paper Honest and very helpful.
I am a qualified teacher with over seven years of experience teaching in schools in the UK and overseas. I have taught both music and English as a foreign language, as well as tutoring students through ABRSM piano and music theory exams. My GCSE results are consistently high, and all of my piano students achieved merit or above in their exams. I have taught AQA, Edexcel and IGCSE Music. I have also coached students through A level music.
Eleanor's last completed TOEFL job with Ayna: Intensive - Hi! I'm perfectly fluent in English. I plan to apply for top MBA programs in USA by September this year and need to pass TOEFL exam with highest scores. I can't organise myself to study on my own as I have a full time job and kids, so I think private tutor could really help me
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.
I have been teaching about 8 years and two of these years have involved tutoring online. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to online resources for learning and I typically like to use Zoom for my live classes, as well as Google documents and Google sites. I think one innovative thing I do is to create for my students their own 'study website' using Google sites. It is fairly easy to set up but it just means that you can have access to all our lessons on your phone.
Before I started tutoring online, I also tutored for International House for just over a year. I think I have a lot of experience when it comes to working with people one on one and I have lots of ex students who have credited me with helping them pass their exams.
