Personal Description:

Did you know that "tutor" derives from the Latin verb "tueor", meaning "to watch over", "to guide", or "to safeguard"? As a tutor, I consider it my job to guide my students safely and securely through their exams. I am a postgraduate student of Linguistics at Rhodes University. I love languages, and have a special passion for grammar and etymology. I regularly teach undergraduates, and also enjoy working with older teens, particularly those engaged in Matric preparation.

Tutoring Experience:

I tutored Classics at the University of Cape Town between 2014 and 2016, and have tutored and lectured Classics, Latin, and Ancient Greek at Rhodes University since 2018. I also worked professionally as an English-language editor in 2017, during which time I regularly coached second-language copywriters on grammar and style.

Tutoring Approach:

My background in Latin and Ancient Greek means that I have a meticulous command of grammar, and considerable experience in grammar-based teaching. I especially enjoying teaching young people to develop their essay-writing skills, and place a strong emphasis on helping kids learn how to organise information, structure an argument, and hone their style.
