Information About Sandra - Horsham teacher - (8 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Sandra:
I am an experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a great love of languages, both ancient and modern. I have two degrees: a BA from the University of Bristol taken in 1981, and then over 20 years later an MA from UCL.
I've recently studied for a teaching diploma, specialising in tutoring individuals or small groups, from school age through to adult learners. I enjoy learning, and I enjoy helping others in their learning too!
- Private tutor with a wealth of experience across all age groups – my students/tutees have ranged in age from 12 to 75. I have coached for exams (CE, GCSE, A level, university exams), with excellent results for my students, and I have tutored adult learners who have come to me for a variety of reasons: some relocating to Italy, others wanting to speak a bit of Italian on holiday, and some who fancy reading Virgil or Cicero in the original Latin.
- Tutor in adult education, currently teaching Italian, Latin, Ancient Greek and Roman History in West Sussex.
- Tutor at The London Summer School in Classics.
- Tutor at a leading university, taking undergraduate seminar classes.
The key to successful tutoring lies in tailoring the content of the classes to the student's needs and objectives. For GCSE, a rigorous approach may be required to ensure that grammar and vocabulary is secure, whereas an adult learner of Italian may simply want to be able to communicate on holiday. Whatever the case, I think learning or revision should be fun too, and I aim to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible, whilst keeping a close eye on exam deadlines!
