I focus on true understanding over rigid mechanics, and my goal is to make you grasp the purpose of your work. We will approach each project as a problem to be solved. Working from goal to reality, I hope to make education meaningful and USEFUL.
I develop material for each context. My job is to find out what the learner needs most to practice and get feedback on, and set up that kind of opportunity in an appropriate structure. I have a Bachelor degree in Arts (inc. Chinese) and am able to teach Chinese. I have a BEd with a specialization in early childhood. I favor experiential learning/teaching methods.
I believe the international education and a reliable experience I earned in several countries and languages (I'm also excellent in French and fluent in Spanish) can be a resourceful. I have a deep, wide, and reliable knowledge of the subjects, acquired and constantly improved in internationally challenging environments.
We start off with the issue at hand, do a bit of brainstorming to get our creative juices flowing, and go from there! I understand that writing an essay can be difficult, annoying, and sometimes daunting. However, breaking everything down piece by piece can really help.
I approach education by focusing on the student's strengths, needs and areas in which they need or want to excel. Not all people learn the same way and I am focused on making sure that everyone's needs are met when it comes to educational instruction.
I am dedicated to one-on-one lessons that are focused on building skills through individualized, interactive, and learner centred lesson plans. These lessons are adaptable to any skill level and will be personalized to suit the specific needs of each student.
In every course that I teach, I stress the importance of effective reading and writing while emphasizing the key distinctions between periods, genres, and styles. At the same time, I always encourage students to challenge accepted beliefs, particularly those concerning human nature.
My teaching method is very focused on the ideas of my students. I like to let people put forth their own ideas and work with my students to ensure that their voice is heard, whilst ensuring that their ideas are presented in a clear and concise way that will allow them to get the best possible results.
I have an organic approach to teaching, depending on the subject and the student. While it is important to guide a student and help them to perform to the best of their ability it is just as essential to pay close attention to the student's needs.
My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was working on my PhD, and never stopped! I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate dissertation.
Classes are prepared according to the time available for the study. If you need to improve your knowledge in Latin for a test, the classes are structured to account for the contents that will be required within the time available.
My teaching methodology focusses on sculpting the approach to a student's personal learning style and strengths, and creates pride in personal progress. Lessons are structured around student-led learning and fun, interactive engagement with the topic. Working with students with learning disabilities has taught me to shape a learning environment to suit the particular needs of every single student.
I believe that the best one-to-one tutors create a positive and approachable working environment, and experience tells me this is the best way to achieve high results. I aim to build a friendly atmosphere that allows students to push themselves towards their potential.
My teaching method differs depending on the subject and the student! Whether you are in need of help with grammar to bolster your grades; need star material to boost you from a B to an A*; or need something extra to challenge you, I can cater to your learning needs and help youreach your full potential.
My teaching methodology considers the most recent studies on strategic and motivated learning, because I think that teachers should always be up-to-date on teaching techniques and they should have interdisciplinary skills. I believe that a solid base of grammar has to be built beside innovative and practical execises where communicative competence can be developed.
My classes are based on the use of practical examples based on real and accurate information and the use of examples related to the daily life of each person, in order to make the information easy to land and understand
My approach to the subject is a dialogical approach: we translate together and we analyze the translation from a grammatical, morphological and syntactic point of view. The student does the homework and analyze the errors (if there are any). I am also available for reviews before exams about every literature, history and geography.
I am a PhD from PUC - SP, currently developing a thesis on Medieval History. The classes are intended for all those who want to learn the Latin language from the beginning. The content will always be presented in an expositive and dynamic way, using specific didactic materials, such as the renowned "Reading Latin".
My teaching method is to approach a concept from where the student's understanding is clearest, to build a firm understand from the foundation up. I love empowering students and helping them to realise their own potential, helping to build a brighter future.
I focus on using targeted exercises tailored to the student to work with and improve their skills. These exercises vary to suit each student; I can adapt to students over a variety of levels. I prefer to focus on a different area in each lesson, rather than trying to cram in many different skills at once.
I am able to take you through an extensive vocabulary with Latin and go through each new grammatical concept in detail. When working on essay help and general class issues, I can go through the issues slowly and in detail so that a retention rate is guaranteed.
I prefer an inductive method (from the particular to the rule), both because I find that generally it interests more the student, and because it often proves more effective.
Looking to tutor from Secondary upwards to undergraduate degree level in areas of History.
I specialise in Ancient Religions, focusing on the culture and beliefs of the ancient world from the 6th century BCE - Late antiquity. I have a MA in ancient religions (Classics) from the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, where my dissertation subject focused on changing views of the afterlife in ancient Greece between the 6th-4th century BCE.
I am a PhD student, graduated in classics with full grades, and I offer classes in Latin, Ancient Greek and Humanities at all levels. I have many years of experience in teaching classical languages so that I can help you to quickly improve your knowledge of grammar and guide you in the translation of ancient texts. I can also help you with the literature (including the metrical reading of texts).
I base my classes on grammar and syntax, both English and Greek one, because a solid grammar knowledge is a guarantee of success especially in ancient languages. The lesson usually lasts two hours, of which one is dedicated to revision and the second one to written exercises.
I use a range of sensory mnemonics to improve your speed at Latin grammar. You will have tools based on your approach to studying. I create and adapt readings to help you build understanding. From following along with the book - to writing your own, I will help you get to the level of Latin you want.
In both Greek and Latin I am able to tutor up to GCSE level and believe that the best way to tackle the ancient languages it through the 'little and often' method, particularly with vocabulary. At university I have written a number of first class essays, thus am able to aid essay structure and the analytical process of examining ancient evidence.
As a student myself, I understand the difficulties faced by students in the academic field. While I was at school, I often found the the subjects I struggled with the most were also the subjects which I enjoyed the least. In my teaching therefore, I think it is important to keep the student interested and to find interactive and energetic ways of teaching.
My teaching method is person-centred and based around what is best for each individual student. I have no problem changing my methodology to suit each student's preferred learning method, and like to use a variety of materials and methods to enhance the learning experience.
