Midi
Learn ENGLISH from a NATIVE SPEAKER, test prep, homework, causal conversation, business, marketing
My classes (whether online or in-person) will guarantee that you will be speaking English with confidence and fluency just like a native speaker. I am very flexible in terms of methodology. I always look for the best methods for each student depending on their needs. Young children, for instance, learn best by play learning with songs and toys. Teenagers often have a lot of homework and become very stressed out when it comes to exam revision. Adult students may have a goal to improve their written grammar due to work purposes (e.g. working with several documents every day and a need to write many emails in English) or to be able to speak well because they need to conduct video conferences and make and receive phone calls in English. I always prepare each class thinking about what each student wants and needs. I give a lot of personalized attention to each student. I want every one of them to advance and strive to make them feel good and proud of their efforts in English. A little about your new tutor: I am a 29-year-old positive and enthusiastic guy that was born in a small country in the South of Europe: Albania. My family and I moved to the UK when I was young and I have lived here in London (UK) for the last 21 years, graduating from university with a Sport Science Degree (BaHons) and then teaching in a Special School for children with complex learning difficulties and disabilities for 5 years. In the last 3 years, I've been on a great adventure supporting adults with learning difficulties and disabilities on their holidays around the world - completing over 60 holidays and visiting 22 countries. A year ago, on one of these beautiful trips to Mallorca, I met my Spanish senorita and fell in love. I am now looking to relocate to the beautiful island of Mallorca with her permanently whilst she helps me on my journey to learn Spanish. So here I am! Excited to meet you all!

Behavioral Cognitive Therapy for Kids and Teenagers
There are many feelings and behaviors that a child or teen might been experiencing or acting out. And this could lead to learning problems, stress or anxiety present in the family environment. Let me asses you with your child and make a plan to help him/her cope with their feelings and their learning journey.

Stanislava
Long-Term Mathematics Tutoring for Those Who Struggle
I specialize in facilitating learning experiences to those struggling to see math's beauty and usefulness, yet willing to exert the effort necessary to discover on their own under gentle guidance. My strength is that I can discern the roots of shallow understanding. This gift stemming from my long tutoring experience enables me to build up students' foundations from the very point they started to struggle. This method may be slower but pays off well beyond the tutoring sessions. Thus, if you are looking for a long-term tutor who can lead you to the joy of independence and insights, I can be a person for you.

Kristy
Experienced primary maths teacher offering maths lessons using a Maths Mastery approach in London
**In light of recent developments, I am now available for daytime lessons in person and online via Skype, Zoom or Google Hangouts** I have availability immediately and throughout the summer. I specialise in tutoring maths for primary mainstream and SEN children. I use a Maths Mastery Method which begins with using concrete materials to model problems. Next, I represent these materials with pictures and diagrams. Finally, I move to the abstract where numbers and symbols are used to make a number sentence to represent a problem. I break down concepts into small steps and provide repetition with variety so that students can apply and generalise their knowledge to a range of contexts to gain procedural fluency and a holistic understanding. I spend significant time developing a strong knowledge of the foundations of maths and key ideas that are needed to underpin future learning. Connections within maths are emphasised so that students develop deep learning. Students are encouraged to look for patterns and relationships, think mathematically and talk about their findings. In order to reduce the demand on students' memory to free up more space for the learning of new concepts, we also focus on learning to automaticity key facts such as times tables, number bonds and addition facts. I review progress with children and parents and give advice on practical strategies in order to support learners in the home.
