Personal Description:

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).

Teaching Experience:

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.

Creative Writing:
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.

Teaching Approach:

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.
