    ‘I try not to just tell a student no, that’s wrong. Instead, I ask why, or how did you arrive at that answer? It is only by interacting and engaging with the material that a student can actually learn, not by being knocked over the head with the ultimate truth. I think Socrates had some very good ideas about how to teach!’

    ‘Teaching is one of the most rewarding jobs – few things can be as gratifying as seeing your students’ progress. This is what brought me into this profession six years ago, and since then, it has become my true passion. I believe that above all, a good teacher needs to be genuinely enthusiastic about his or her subject to infect students with it. Teaching skills are also important – planning lessons, finding appropriate teaching materials, and designing interactive activities are crucial for making the learning process both effective and entertaining. In my own lessons, I use every possible means to raise students’ interest in the humanities, and to teach them such important skills as critical thinking, close reading, and writing’.

    Moscow Institute of Foreign Languages, MA in Lingustics

    ‘I’d started working with a teenage audience long before my graduation and haven’t lost the fascination for my job ever since. Multicultural communication has already become an essential point for everyone eager to achieve success in life. It’s an infinite realm of cooperation between the teacher and the pupil, that is why the best motivation for me is to see my student’s knowing look after any linguistic discussion we have’

  • Ekaterina

    Education:

    American University, Lebanon
    Hokkaido University, Japan

    PhD in biological sciences

    Teaching experience: 10 years

    ‘I think I was born to be a teacher, because I really love to make my students interested in whatever topic I teach. Biology is my favorite and I think the most exciting subject that one can study and explore. As a teacher I always put three major goals in front of me to follow throughout my teaching year: to make my students interested in the subject that I teach, to make them understand every single detail of it and to make them able to perform well in the end of the year exams’

  • Stephen

    Education:

    University of Oxford, Keble College

    Teaching experience: 11 years

    ‘Confidence and love of the subject one is studying. Without these two qualities, I firmly believe, no meaningful learning is ever possible. One can learn things by rote, and regurgitate things when one needs to, but true understanding of a subject only comes when one genuinely believes that that subject is part of oneself, when, in the modern jargon, one assumes ownership of it. And a student achieves that, certainly in the arts and humanities, not by obediently copying down the ‘right’ answers (except, obviously, in matters of fact), but by questioning, by arguing, by hypothesizing, and, above all, by taking risks’

  • Matthew

    Education:

    University of Dublin, Trinity College

    Teaching experience: 8 years

    ‘From my experience so far, I think that being good at a subject does not mean you can necessarily tutor it well. My strength lies in my ability to build intuition and enthusiasm around a subject, especially if a student is lacking a little bit of confidence’.

  • Timofey

    Education:

    Moscow State University, Department of Physics, PhD in Physical and Mathematical sciences

    Teaching experience: 7 years

    ‘You need to study Physics diligently to understand the world order: only the curious ones can make physics answer the question ‘why?’ My aim therefore is to teach students to be curious!’

  • Omari

    Education:

    University of Oxford (BA Hons) English & Spanish 2:1

    Teaching experience: 8 years

    ‘As an approachable and lively person as well, I hope to offer more than just academics. I’m really pleased that I’ve become a positive role model for many of my students and often it’s them who ask their parents for me to come back again – even after I’ve helped them through the original test or exam they were struggling with’

  • Brogan

    Education:

    Ravensbourne, BA (Hons) Degree in Photography

    Teaching experience: 5 years

  • Elias

    University of York, MSc Management

    LSE, Economics and Finance BSc

    Teaching experience: 7 years

    ‘I constantly introduce elements that lie ahead in the line of knowledge. This way when tackling with a knowledge block, it is already framed in the students’ mind, which increases their confidence and speeds up the learning process’
