This is how 6 referees rated William:
I am a teacher, novelist, and musician from Scotland. I have taught for many years at preparatory schools, while writing novels. I have also taught English abroad (Italy & Brazil). Experienced in online teaching.
I enjoy helping students to overcome their difficulties and find ways to enjoy the language and culture.
Lessons at my house or yours.
Online tutoring is a great way to work on your Latin (rates negotiable).
Latin, Ancient Greek & English:
25 years tutoring, 6 years with Greater London Tutorial Agency/Top Tutors;
12 years with First Tutors,
from beginners, through Common Entrance, GCSE and A-level to university
12 years teaching Classics, Hall Grove, Bagshot.
1 year teaching Classics, Academy School, Hampstead.
2 years University of Portsmouth
2 years Islington Summer University.
English as Foreign Language:
1 year St Giles, Sao Paulo, Brazil;
2 years English Academy, Molfetta, Italy, including PET, CAE, CPE, IELTS, TOEFL.
I also teach guitar, bass, piano and Italian.
Most pupils who come to me have simply lost track or lost confidence.
With careful guidance, it usually doesn't take long to put them back on the right track.
I can help with the building blocks of grammar, presenting it as a puzzle or a game; I can suggest ways to improve vocabulary; and I can point the way through the complexities of translation and syntax. Even working on exam technique can ease anxiety quickly.
I also enjoy enthusing students about classical mythology and literature.
I am happy to teach online as well as in person: with a committed tutee, this can work as well as tuition in person.

We have had only four lessons so far. We shall carry on the Latin journey with William - we have enjoyed the challenge every week and always look forward to it.
Thanks very much William
