A language enthusiast who likes to make learning fun and productive!

Hey there! My name is Joshua and I'm a final year student at the University of Southampton. I study Modern Languages, them being French, German and Chinese. I've always had a passion for languages and I aspire to do something with them and use them in a job. I hope to to do a European Masters in Translation and Interpretation to continue to improve my proficiency in the languages I speak. I love learning languages because you are not only learning a language; you are also introduced into a new and exciting culture, where you can discover about the food, history, music, traditions, etc. of a country. The cultural competency you gain is great and is very valued with employers, since it shows you can be flexible and have great communication skills. I would love to help you with your language learning and show how fun and rewarding language learning can be! Whilst grammar can be tedious sometimes, I like to make it more enjoyable, since you learn things much better when you like what you are doing. For languages, there are many ways in which you can improve, and I would make sure that all the main skills are covered in order to improve - these being listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. These skills would not be improved just through the use of a textbook - videos, role plays, listening exercises, flashcards, quizzes, etc. would all be used to bring variety to the learning. Every lesson will be different, since I feel that in order to learn efficiently, variety is needed to keep the student interested. At the beginning of each lesson, clear and achievable learning goals will be set out, so they know what to reach for and what to expect in each lesson. At any point during the lesson, the student may ask me questions about the learning content or if they're confused about their learning goals, so that we can both progress together efficiently and productively. I will also gain an understanding from the pupil about what their preferred learning methods are, so that I can tailor to their individual needs - are they more of a visual learner, for example. Learning will be achieved through a range of ways such as vocabulary and grammar exercises with flashcards and quizzes for reading and writing skills, role-play and dialogue exercises to improve speaking skills, past papers for exam preparation, etc. Other activities may be listening to foreign music and playing language games - all to facilitate and encourage learning. Allof these activities will be centred around the work of the student, i.e. around the A-level syllabus, GCSE practice papers, etc. The progress will be measured through all these activities, where I will keep note of test scores and change the difficulty and content of the lesson, based on the progress they are making and learning goals.

Dedicated tutor and who is ready to teach!

Biography I am a self-made person who started working after graduating high school. I do have an intention to complete my academic route, but this is for the future. I have worked in various spheres, customer services, hospitality, but all the time I would come back to tutoring since this is the job which I love and which makes me feel fulfilled. I self-study in my spare time, since along with my students, I am eager to learn. I have recently took up a Graphic Design course, as well as programming. I do Art and some writing as my hobbies. I am an avid animal lover, which is quite obvious since I have 7 cats. Teaching Experience I started tutoring at a quite young age since I have always been ahead of my class. I took particular joy in helping people and spreading my knowledge for the best of others. I started tutoring professionally in 2017 and after a brief pause I resumed my teaching responsibilities, as well as education consulting. I receive only top reviews from my clients for my successful work with both children and adults and helping them acquire top marks in their desired subjects. I pay special attention to the individual needs of each of my tutees and their goals. Based on that I create a personalised studying programme rich in diverse activities and media materials. I teach Maths for GCSE, A-level, IB and SAT, as well as Primary and Secondary school; English as a second language; Russian as a foreign language, Russian GCSE, A level and IB. I come across different clients, some are more demanding while others are more independent in their studies, some are 5 and others are 40+ - all of them say that I change their attitude towards the subjects I am teaching, they themselves notice the progress of our collaboration, as well as their school teachers, colleagues, family. I support my students in exploring the subject beyond the curriculum level, in reaching the depth of their understanding of the material rather than acquiring the superficial facts. I encourage my tutees to think out of the box and to aim further than their original goals. With education consulting, I provide my clients with full-time support in their application process, which involves setting up the application strategy, preparing the documents, filling in all the necessary forms, getting in touch with their selected education establishments. All of my clients were successful in their applications and referred me to their friends and family.

Resourceful tutor and undergraduate at University of Oxford

I have tutored students in my local area for a number of years, and through one-to-one teaching I have seen how an individualised approach can dramatically improve academic performance. I favour a collaborative style, working with the student to identify areas that they find difficult and through practice helping them to gain confidence. I also encourage my students to send me written work for feedback, which will always be returned on a quick and regular basis. I will also produce personalised revision packs and schedules to help structure work throughout the week. My tutorial style is relaxed and laid back, and I tend to gear a segment of each session into a discussion of what part of the syllabus the student finds the most interesting. Cultivating practical examination skills alongside a passion for the subject is the ultimate goal of my tutorials. While English Literature is my degree course, I have also tutored students for GCSE History and R.E. I can also offer guidance on university admissions, and specifically Oxbridge applications. I have just completed my final year of study in English Language at Literature at the University of Oxford, and have graduated with a first-class degree. I am well aware of the benefits of tutorial-based teaching and wish to impart some of the techniques and skills I have acquired over the past three years to students working at all levels. Having undergone A-levels and GCSEs not too long ago myself, I am conscious of what examination boards are looking for from candidates, and how simple techniques (acquiring the right vocabulary; addressing questions appropriately; arguing with intent) alongside broadening your knowledge of the subject outside of the confines of examinations (reading around the texts, dipping into accessible parts of criticism, exploring topics not typically covered in school) can both improve the grade of a student while also instilling a greater appreciation of the subject in general. Having worked as an Admissions Helper at Hertford College, I have experienced both sides of the university admissions process and would be happy to help prospective undergraduates with their university applications.
