Private Tutors in Edinburgh and Tutoring in Edinburgh

Ord Adams

National 5, Higher Maths tutor offering Maths lessons in Murrayfield, Edinburgh

£40.00-45.00Academic tutor

Muddled Maths is an affliction which Ord is obsessed with helping to cure. Qualifications: B.Arch (Hons); Cert. Ed. He works between two independent schools. Website www.muddledmaths.com explains that he brings to each tutorial ... in addition to his 25 years’ experience ... a unique library of original and imaginative visual material. His slightly unorthodox approach can unlock maths concepts. He prefers to tutor at pupils' homes in West Edinburgh where his one-to-one fee is around £40 per hour but, if pupils of equal ability can be paired up, the rate falls to £26. Charges depend on distance and seasonal demand.

Chenyao - Mandarin Chinese Tutor

Beginner, Intermediate English as a Foreign Language, Mandarin, Chinese tutor in Morningside, Edinburgh, Lothians, Scotland

£23.00-35.00Academic tutor

Hi, my name is Chenyao. I am a native mandarin Chinese speaker. I have lived the in Edinburgh for the past 10 years. My professional background is in business and international trade. However I love languages and teaching. I started private tutoring in my university days and carried on ever since in my spare time. My clientele for Mandarin Chinese tutoring are mostly adults who have a fond interest in Chinese culture, or a work connection with Chinese market/companies. Although occasionally I do have younger students too. I believe the best way to learn a language is to learn through context. I therefore use a lot of examples in my teaching, and I endeavor to create a lot of opportunities for students to speak during the sessions. Students feel stimulated and fulfilled when they finish a session. Currently I also teach speaking English as a foreign language through a Chinese online platform. I look forward to helping you having fun while learning Mandarin or English as a foreign language.
