Frederick H

 

£20.00-35.00Academic tutor

I am experienced in tutoring students of all abilities and I believe I am the ideal candidate for this position. I have been providing language support to professionals and students of all ages, from primary school to university level. Whatever the level I teach, I make sure the resources used are both adequate and challenging. I also break material down into easy-to-understand concepts. I have also designed a 30 days French tuition programme using PowerPoint interactive resources which makes the learning more interesting for students. I have also created individualised plans and programmes to facilitate a targeted, personalised approach to education while stimulating students’ enjoyment and appreciation for the French language and culture. I have employed a wide array of instructional techniques, instructional media, and technological tools—including hand-outs, presentations, videos, online activities, and foreign language laboratory assignments—to facilitate improved language abilities. I know how important it is to make the student feel relaxed, which in turn helps them become ready to learn.

Alex I

 

£15.00-20.00Academic tutor

I am nearing completion of my PhD in Economics, and in addition I have a deep interest in and knowledge of Mathematics. My maths teachers were fantastic, and I want to be able to generate the enthusiasm for Maths and Economics that my teachers created for me, for others. I like to bring a relaxed and friendly approach to my tutorials so all my students feel calm and at ease. I also make the topics as interesting as possible. Before lessons, I would appreciate if you could outline what specific topics you would like to learn, so I can prepare lessons of increasing difficulty that I can run through with you to help build up your confidence with Maths and/or Economics. As we get more confident with topics, I'd like to go through an example exam question to measure your progress and to give you an example of questions you would be likely to see in your tests. I am currently available at any time, most days.
