BA, MA in English Literature, PGCE
I have over ten years of teaching experience in English language and literature. My earlier career in the service industry, both as cabin crew with British Airways and in media and sales (Khaleej Times), has also borne favourably on my teaching as it helped me develop excellent management and communication skills. Am a qualified teacher holding a BA and MA in English Literature from University of London. I have had a high rate of success with my students and have a wide range of experience in various curricula. For instance, have extensive experience teaching GCSE and IGCSE from various exam boadrs (AQA, CIE, Edexcel); as well as assisting IB students with their coursework, extended essays and IOAs. Have tutored students from American School of Dubai, Universal Americal School and Deira International School, thus have knowledge of AP (Advanced Placement) curriculum as well. Besides facilitating students with their ongoing studies, I have also helped them prepare for the college and university application process, for example, writing a strong personal statement and enhancing their student profile. In addition to English Literature, I have had the opportunity to teach drama and Media Studies to high school/ secondary students thus have a working knowledge of these subjects as well. I have also taught Academic English to Business and Engineering students at a Scottish University in Dubai, so am familiar with business English and its requirements. Besides this, I am able to help with IELTs preparation and English Language exams from the British Council.
I adopt a holitic approach to my lessons and teach my student the way knowledge works, for instance, they must first equip themselves with a thorough understanding of the assessment criteria before they learn to speak or write with more sophistication. Of course, this input would depend on each individual student and their requirement. Before exams we practice many exam papers to fully prepare the student for the paper. I test their understanding during and after the lesson and set reasobable amount of homework to consolidate their skills.My aim is to boost my student's confidence and make them independent learners. I work closely with parents (when applicable) to enlist their help in their child's tutoring.
She teaches her students valuable skills of how to make use of the English language and apply it to all kinds of writing. She is very knowledgeable about the exam course.

Freshly certified as a TESOL instructor, have been teaching English and Spanish for well over 4 years, my passion for languages grows on a daily basis, I speak French and I can read and write in Arabic (moving forward with this language on a daily basis). I am originally from Ecuador so my mother tongue is Spanish but I speak both English and Spanish as a native, I think bilingually and can transition between dialects smoothly
I teach the way I learned, which worked well for me as I was able to adapt the English language in just two months, I highly encourage my students to emerge themselves in the language, follow their hobbies in said language, watch tv, movies, listen to music, read! Anything you can to constantly be surrounded by it. Listen and Repeat is my favorite approach. But most importantly all my lessons are tailored to the individuals needs.
Mario is currently teaching me Spanish and I have to highlight what an extremely enthusiastic and motivating teacher he is. He is well versed with the language and my conversational ability in Spanish has improved a lot. If you're on the lookout for a young, fun and efficient tutor then do take lessons with Mario!
Languages, Literature and Cultural Mediation
Hi! I am Gabriele, a language student at the University of Padua. Born in Brazil and raised in Italy, I am passionate about learning and studying languages, and I wish to share this passion with my students. Specialising in New Romance languages, I offer Portuguese, Spanish and Italian language lessons for students of various ages and levels of proficiency. Lessons are suitable for students of all nationalities as I can teach in both Italian and English, or in one of the languages I teach, such as Spanish and Portuguese.
My methodology is based on a conversational approach linked to a study of grammar and accompanied by practical exercises for the memorisation of the key points of knowledge of the language. One of the fundamental exercises that I make my students do is the repetition of single sentences and the memorization of musical texts, in order to favour learning in a natural way. I try to make the study light, as this stimulates the student to have a more confident and spontaneous approach to the language itself. For languages such as Spanish and Portuguese, we will analyse the various linguistic differences between the Hispanic and Portuguese countries in order to understand their structure and common points. My lessons will always be accompanied by multimedia material such as videos, music, texts and worksheets which will help the student to fully immerse himself in the study of the language. I will also offer those who are interested some tools for personal research on the language and culture of the country being studied, so as to have a 360° view of it. If you are curious about my lessons and my methodology, do not hesitate to contact me. You will be able to have a free trial lesson, so that you can check my skills yourself and organise your language study plan in the best possible way.
The teacher is kind and clear in the explication process, and his lessons were very intuitives. The materials he gave me after the class was also clear and very helpful to understand better the concepts.
Primary / Secondary teacher
I have a specialized degree in Early Childhood Care and Education. I have many years of work experience in India and then later on worked in Netherlands with the foundation stage children. In India, I have worked with nursery and year 1 children and later on started working with less privileged children, to build their English confidence and to create a bright future for them. Most of my students are now employed working as a nurse or in the hotel industry. In Netherlands, I helped year 1 children to build on their Maths foundation skills. I am passionate about teaching and as an early years teacher. I believe that early childhood education is crucial for children to learn, explore and have fun. My greatest joy comes from being able to guide and develop beautiful young minds for a bright future. I believe that education is the most powerful tool you can use to bring a change in the world. I am a dedicated enthusiastic teacher who continually strives to raise standards. I have a clear vision and keep closely monitoring the achievements of the children.
I have many teaching aids, which help children to learn through play. I use the jolly phonic method to enhance the phonics. It is key that children enjoy what they learn and as a teacher I see it as my duty to keep forming innovative ways to reinforce the teachings. For Maths, it is essential that the foundation is crystal clear. We work with many tools to get this clear in the students mind. Once that it is clear it is very easy to learn addition subtraction multiplication or division. I also provide with online tuitions.
Extremely friendly but firm, honest and caring teacher. I would absolutely recommend her to every child and family looking for a dedicated professional who not only cares about the academics but also supports the child socially and emotionally. Thanks to Shivani my son has progressed to the highest Math level and has scored the highest grade possible in English too.

CELTA Certified Teacher - Bachelor of Arts in English Literature
I have been teaching English for 10 years at reputable schools and language institutes. My teaching style helps you learn in an environment that is fun and enjoyable. You will be able to learn in a short amount of time. You will be provided with: In-class notes & class recordings for you to review after each class. I also have experience in teaching non-native and native (kids from 5 to 12 years old) learners from A1 to C1 levels. Every session, or series of sessions, will be designed for the individual needs of the student and the progress they want or need to achieve.
I would describe it as results driven. I always try to clearly define the goals with my students. Not what I want to achieve, but what they want to achieve, what they expect from our cooperation. Then, considering their current level of language skills, and what kind of personality they are, I come up with a clear plan for the entire course, including some milestones and tests, in order to evaluate our progress regularly. And just then do I choose my teaching methods.

Literacy is an area I think is very powerful and is an area that can help strengthen other skills and subjects. "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." (Dr. Seuss.) This is a quote that aligns with my teaching philosophy. I believe that being able to read and become a strong reader is very important. It opens doors and opportunities you will never imagine were possible.

BA Hons Primary Education with QTS and MSc Psychology
I am UK Qualified Primary School Teacher (BA with QTS) with a Masters in Psychology (Msc). I have been tutoring and working in Dubai for the past 8 years, I tutor children aged from FS2 - Year 6. I have supported my tutees in Maths, English (Reading, Grammar and Writing), Science, Theme and Phonics. I provide SAT, GL and SPaG exam preparation and I have up to date training to teach Read Write Inc, Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds to KS1 children. I use current schemes of work including White Rose, The Write Stuff aswell as my own personlised lesson plans with over 10 years experience. My teaching approach is creative, engaging and inspiring. I believe that success is not an accident it's hard work, perserverence and most of all it is loving what you are doing or learning to do. I hope to work with you and your child to help your child feel secure and successful in and out of school.
I would describe my tutoring approach as highly adaptable. I do not really prefer one teaching method, or one way of interacting with the students because in my opinion, each child is unique and each has their own personlised learning journey. I adapt my lesson plans and approaches to fit the individual using my 11 years of teaching experience. In order for children to thrive and succeed academically as well as personally they need to feel present and purpose, therefore I use my background in psychology to ensure all my tutees feel happy and heard during our lessons. I like to use the outdoors when teaching and enjoy teaching lessons outside in bright, light areas. I simply prefer an individual approach to teaching, and I alternate between being an authority, demonstrator, facilitator, delegator and mentor.

Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering with Minor in English (Anticipated in 2024)
Engineering has given me the right boosted foundation in Math and Physics, and with a minor in English I can support you with that as well. I've studied these subjects with enthusiasm in school and university so I would really like to help someone aspiring to learn. I have two siblings and have taught them diligently over a big period of my life and I look forward to teaching those who are in need to learn. I look forward to continue this skill I have and enrich students as much as I can.
My approach is simple, to make sure every aspect that the student does not understand, for them to practice that after I've taught them and for it to be clear. Concepts are a primary part in every subject, so approaching with a lecture and then a one-to-one practice session and multiple examples shall help the student gain clarity in their concepts.
