Frederick H

Beginner French tutor in Alva, Lothians

£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.

Zoe P

GCSE Biology, A level Biology tutor in St Andrews, Central and East

£10.00-15.00Academic tutor

I am on the 5th (and final) year of my MSc (Hons) Biology degree at the University of St Andrews. I really enjoy biology and especially Ecology and Conservation but I am comfortable with most areas due to the highly integrated nature of the subject. Apart from my studies, I enjoy dancing as I did Latin and Ballroom lessons for 9 years and I am a recently qualified Ocean diver. I have finished high school with an International Baccalaureate diploma of 40/45 (higher level: Biology, Chemistry, Modern Greek/ Standard level: Maths, English B, Psychology). In terms of my approach to teaching Biology, I am trying to focus on the students` needs and what they don`t understand or need help. The student and I will discuss the subjects of interest and I`ll try to let them figure out the answers themselves rather than me giving them a ready answer. This way they will be ready to answer all types of questions rather than trying to memorise an answer and be flustered in an exam setting if something they haven`t seen before comes up. In order to achieve this, I usually prepare my lessons in advance. I give exercises to the students to complete before our sessions so we can discuss them and identify challenging topics. Once these topics have been identified, I try to explain them through audiovisual measures (diagrams and videos), as well as examples from personal experience, which places the theory in a real-life context which is more memorable. However, I understand that this method doesn`t work for everyone and therefore I am willing to adapt my teaching style to the individual`s needs. I love working with younger people and aid them in the process of learning new things and make them enjoy a subject that I thoroughly love myself!
