Personal Description:

I am an experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a great love of languages, both ancient and modern. I have two Latin/Ancient History degrees: a BA from the University of Bristol, and an MA from UCL.

I have a teaching diploma, with a specialism in tutoring individuals or small groups, from school age through to adult learners.
I continue to study myself as I enjoy learning, but I particularly enjoy helping others in their learning.

Teaching Experience:

Private tutor with a wealth of experience across all age groups – my students/tutees have ranged in age from 10 to 85. 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 always wanted to study Latin at school but didn't have the chance, others like the idea of reading Virgil or Cicero in a small friendly group. Many of my adult learners have gone on to take Latin GCSE, with great success!
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 UCL, taking undergraduate seminar classes.

Teaching Approach:

The key to successful tutoring lies in tailoring the content of the classes to the student's needs and objectives. For GCSE/A level, a rigorous approach may be required to ensure that grammar and vocabulary is secure, whereas an adult learner may want a pleasant meander through the joy of learning something new and exciting, or a quick progression to adapted text. 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 where relevant!
