Trusted teacher: I have 4 years' experience as a teacher of languages with the prestigious British Council in Egypt, Qatar and Mexico. I studied Spanish at secondary school, during my first year at the University of Cambridge and again when I lived in Mexico City. I took the DELE official diploma of Spanish as a foreign language issued on behalf of the Spanish government at the C2 (native-like) level in December 2019. Every lesson of mine includes some vocabulary work, because it is easy to get lazy and not record the new words we hear and understand, but active vocabulary study is essential for continual growth. I encourage learners to do as many written grammar exercises as they can outside of the classroom, so that classroom time can be dedicated to valuable conversation practice. I help learners use technology to improve their memory and learn more quickly.
Greek is my native language. I can offer my knowledge from basic until academic skills. I assign homework after every lesson but it depends how busy is your schedule. I studied culinary arts.I can help you learn to make easy greek recipes but even the difficult ones for those who like challenges.

The method that I use with adults consists in making sure that they learn Italian by always speaking in Italian, have conversation in Italian, study grammar, do written excercises, listening excercises.

Trusted teacher: I have been working in the Adult Learning and Career Development sectors for more than 12 years, supporting people to grow and develop both personally and professionally. I have also worked in counselling settings with young people, adults and couples, as well as managing a mentoring project and undertaking academic proof-reading, and all these experiences inform my methods now. I blend a person-centred focus with a practical and structured approach to good effect. I believe that professional development goes hand-in-hand with increased understanding of self and others, also known as emotional intelligence. Understanding and valuing your own strengths and vulnerabilities helps you communicate more strongly and create more honest, productive relationships, both at home and at work, and can impact on your ability to make a convincing argument in written form as well. I am happy to meet you at your home, at my home or at another location convenient to us both, or we can work via webcam. I normally prepare tasks or concepts to consider between meetings, and always tailor the sessions to what you most need or want to get out of them. If you want a simple listening ear, that is fine - if you want someone to create a schedule to help you stick to goals, I can do that. We can decide between us what might best help you get where you want to in your life or career. The availability in the calendar below is just a guide, I can work around your schedule, so please feel free to ask about specific days or times.

I have been doing private classes in Spain for over 10 years, both to classmates and to seniors.

I recommend doing classes with grammar, vocabulary and speaking.
Speech · Grammar · Vocabulary
Classes will be tailored for every student, according to his/her needs and interests. Either you want to take up Spanish for the first time or you already have a certain level of proficiency in the language, the classes will be as interactive as possible, with the student deciding what is more convenient to his/her way of learning. Homework will be assigned every week in order to revise the content already given, along with a weekly report of the progress made. If these classes are used as support for school or to achieve any kind of certification, I am willing to adapt to their pace, content and structure instead of giving additional content. My aim is to create a relaxed environment where the student can practice his/her Spanish skills without feeling overwhelmed nor under pressure. The workload will not interfere in any case with his/her current studies, and the homework assignments and schedule for the classes will always be flexible.

Overview: I offer bespoke tutoring services to school pupils and individuals studying History, Politics, and English. With a background in History and experience in the teaching and media sectors, I provide a professional, insightful, and comprehensive service aimed at improving a client's understanding of a topic, their confidence within it, and targeting specific issues and skills as required. I also provide advice on university selection and applications, building on experience as an applicant myself and coach for successful applicants to highly selective universities (including Oxford, St Andrews, and UCL). Teaching methodology: I believe that the best way to teach is to communicate, work out the student's needs with them, and proceed from there. We live in a diverse world, and it's important to reflect that diversity in teaching. I believe in using a variety of sources to help teach, ranging from films, to books, to music clips. This is particularly important in the context of clients with LS needs, as a focus on one kind of source can impact the pupil's experience,and hinder their success. My lessons are based on a core Learning Objective, changing from lesson to lesson with the curriculum. Around that, there will be a series of case studies, examples, and anecdotes, with personalised support for exam answers if required. Half the battle with the humanities is ensuring that good ideas are communicated well- I seek to teach history and support the development of those communication skills to ensure that the pupil's ability is reflected.

When studying for an exam, it is essential not only to have a strong grasp of the content of the course, but also a knowledge of specific exam skills which allow you to attain the best possible marks in your subject. As a previous student of Scottish Higher and Advanced Higher exams (having attained "A" results in Advanced Higher History and Mathematics, and Higher History, Mathematics and Classical Studies), I have an in-depth knowledge of Scottish qualifications and the skills which must be demonstrated in order to succeed in the examination. As well as developing exam strategies, I will focus on areas of the course which a particular student is struggling with. Through this tailored approach, I can identify and resolve potential weaknesses or gaps in the student's knowledge, so their ability to succeed in their studies will be improved.

I can tutor French to anyone who has an intermediate level in French as I will be explaining everything in my mothertongue. I can also try to explain by speaking English, but I am not bilingual yet so it would be better if you already have a level in French! I design each class according to YOUR personal needs. I generally focus on grammar, because to me it's one of the most important points when learning a new language. If you are really interested in the language itself, I can also teach you certain locutions that even native speakers use wrong! Teaching is one a of passions, so I will be glad to answer any questions from the meaning of a word to French expressions

This course, divided into two different parts depending on the subject of interest (English or Greek/Ancient Greek), is for aspiring students to learn a language, support their arguments and express their ideas with clarity. The results of this effort are directed by the importance of communicating through language. The aim is to create a challenging learning environment, which will be anything but overwhelming. As a tutor, I specialise in the methodology of learning. My primary focus is on the ways through which students enjoy the learning process so that memorizing details and rules wouldn't be very difficult or uninspiring. Grammar is important, however, the method through which a student can get interested in it, is what matters the most. Homework will be assigned weekly, however, its role is of less importance compared to the actual attendance of the students during the course. Teamwork is the key to this beautiful door called 'learning a language'.
