Lucie - Edinburgh$32
Trusted teacher: EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French, be it from scratch or to help you improve. I love to make my students speak since I strongly believe that practice is the key to learn a language and to improve your knowledge. I always structure my lessons according to subjects based on daily life situations (how to introduce yourself, how to make an appointment, shopping/grocery, going to the doctor, professional language, etc). We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehension. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice. And hey, I can teach in English if you want! FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be delighted to help you learn French, whether it's from zero or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. During the first lesson, we will talk about your goals as well as your level, so I can create a lesson for you. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to introduce myself, how to make an appointment, do the shopping, go to the doctor, French at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. Classes take place via Zoom or Google Meet. Before booking a class, please send me a message to confirm availability.
I am offering 60 minute 1:1 tutoring on National 5 and Higher Modern Studies and History. My method of teaching is to use self-made powerpoint presentations on particular topics, as well as going over and discussing past papers from previously years whilst covering how and why marks were awarded for each answer under the marking scheme provided by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). My preferred method of study is to do so creatively, I enjoy making mind maps and writing practice essays as this is what has worked best for me over time. I aim to establish the best possible teaching method for each individual student and to target this when tutoring. I will also create personalised learning tools to help aid each students needs for their study- this includes power points and follow-up notes after each tutoring session to help jog the students memory and further improve their understanding of the topic covered. I am a hard-working, considerate, and creative individual with a passion for political science and would like to share this with younger students. I enjoy finding new methods of study through experimenting with different techniques- many of which have helped enhance my memory/retention skills in exams setting and subsequently improved my grades across the board. I have experience working with vulnerable individuals such as those with Aspergers Syndrome and Downs Syndrome as well as having a sibling with Autism, and so I'm able to take on board the different challenges faced by those in my community and help to encourage them to reach their full potential. I have great patience and understand that every person comprehends information at a different rate.

Are you a student gearing up for your National 5 Mathematics exams? Do you want to ace your math skills and achieve the results you've always dreamed of? Look no further – my National 5 Maths Tutoring is here to guide you on an exciting journey to mathematical excellence! Prior to each session, we will have a topic chosen from the National 5 maths curriculum to focus on. I will begin by providing a concise overview of the topic's importance and relevance and I will explain key concepts, formulas, and rules related to the chosen topic. The session will mainly consist of interactive practice where I will present practice problems covering all aspects of the chosen topic. I will guide the student through solving problems step by step, emphasising key strategies, whilst also encouraging the student to actively participate and attempt solving problems independently. In the last quarter of the session, I will administer a brief quiz with a few questions related to the topic for the student to tackle independently. We will then review the quiz together, and I will provide immediate feedback on correct and incorrect answers. This is to gauge the student's understanding and identify areas for improvement we will focus on in the next session if needed. At the end of each session, I will assign a set of practice problems for the student to complete before the next session. I encourage all students to reach out if they encounter any challenges while working on the assignments! Not only will I help with their mathematical skill, but I will also share tips on effective exam strategies, such as time allocation for different sections and provide advice on staying calm and organised during the exam.
My name is Jake and I am a skilled, calm and professional guitar tutor based in Midlothian. I have studied the guitar for over twenty years, and completed the BA (Hons) Popular Music course at Edinburgh Napier University in 2014 with a 1st Class Honours degree. I am PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) certified; proof can be provided upon request. Quotes from current and past students: “Jake has been my guitar teacher since 2017, and I’ve been enjoying the lessons thoroughly. He’s got amazing talent and knows exactly what he’s talking about – theory (scales, modes), technique, improvisation etc. He’s able to teach all of that in an interesting way. He’s also very flexible and keen to either recommend a lesson subject or ask me what I’d like to learn instead. He’s also very friendly and easy to talk to, so the lessons just fly by. Overall, can’t recommend him enough!” – Lukasz. “I have been learning guitar with Jake since 2019 and he has helped me go from an absolute beginner with zero experience to being able to play songs which I want to learn. Its been a really good experience and has allowed me to learn how to do something which I had always wanted to try. Lessons were in person up until March 2020 and then moved to online Skype due to the covid lockdown. Jake had invested in equipment such as professional cameras and microphones to be able to provide digital lessons to the same quality and high standard which I was having in person and I have continued to improve my skills during this time. Now I have the option of online or in-person. I would highly recommend Jake's services if you are looking to learn guitar!” - Craig. I am the most often and best reviewed Midlothian/Edinburgh-based guitar tutor Affordable guitar lessons for ages 10+ and any style ranging from acoustic pop and jazz to blues/rock/metal. Chords, soloing, technique, songwriting or theory. Easy-going, friendly and effective teaching methods can help you quickly master a new skill. I can teach you everything you need to know, and the lessons will be focused around you, your style, and what you want to learn. Please contact me for details and prices. “I have been working under Jake's guidance for almost four years now, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Jake's approach to teaching is fresh and dynamic, he has the patience required of a great instructor, and always maintains high-quality standards. The learning materials he will provide are excellent and, as you will progress, more and more personalised. Due to the covid pandemic, Jake seamlessly moved his lessons to an online format (via Skype) setting up everything to match the in-person sessions, and nothing of note got lost in the transition and the quality wasn't affected at all. Could not recommend more if you are looking for an experienced and engaging musician to learn from scratch or grow further!” - Federico

Private lessons of violin and viola, solfeggio, improvisation, and chamber music (Edinburgh)
I booked Emma to provide five half-hour lessons for my 9-year-old daughter as an introduction to improvising. She managed to quickly assess my daughter's initial abilities, and come up with some solid starting points that were all well-explained and which my daughter understood and enjoyed. Many thanks!

Private lessons in English, French and Dutch (Brussels)
I am super happy with the lessons Lucie provides. She is very kind and patient. Lucie comes very well prepared and gives homework that challenges me. She has a very nice way of explaining things and we can also have a good laugh in between exercises!
