Personal Description:

Originally from Belfast, I developed a great interest in the classical languages, pursued that as a degree and then trained as a lawyer and was called to the Bar. A chance conversation led me into tutoring, which I find very rewarding and enjoyable and which I am dedicated to full-time. Since 2016 **Removed By Admin**. I have tutored over two hundred students one-to-one over the past eight years. To see a recent video interview with me**Removed By Admin**

Tutoring Experience:

Tutoring since 2009, I now have over five thousands hours' experience of tutoring Latin and Classical Greek to Independent and State School children, undergraduate and mature students, as well as pupils aiming for Common Entrance, Oxbridge and scholarships. I am very familiar with the full range of textbooks for Latin and Greek used by schools. Focus is structured and thorough study of language work on grammar and vocabulary, as well as set-text literature as appropriate.

Six years' experience of tuition in London regularly and abroad during school holiday periods, as well as online.

International residential placements: in summer 2012 I tutored two boys in Shanghai, China, one for his Eton King's Scholarship, the other for Law. I was Hong Kong and Thailand-bound in March/April 2013 for more Eton scholarship tuition; this tutee ended up being one of just three double scholars for Eton entrance in September 2013 . In May 2013 I had the privilege of tutoring Latin in Venice and in Vienna, Austria in November preparing a boy for his Eton pre-test. In May 2014 I was tutoring twins in Switzerland for Eton and Radley scholarships; in France and Channel Islands through 2015 to 2017 and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2016.

I have also tutored online to students in New York, Seattle, Hong Kong, Beijing, India, Singapore and Uzbekistan, among others.

Tutoring Approach:

I see tuition to be not only a way of fostering independent learning but also as a means of being a mentor and example to inspire others to be the best. I am committed and dedicated to helping students fulfil their potential.

Arrangements for online tuition are made via Skype or FaceTime. I can also use an online whiteboard which I share with the student during the lesson. This has become a popular, complementary and convenient choice when tutoring in person at any particular stage in the process may not be convenient.

Taking into account my experience and existing tuition workload, I typically charge £60 to £80 per hour, depending on the subject, lesson duration, aim, level and location. I generally do not charge for travel if within a reasonable distance from my location. I charge the whole lesson price if it is cancelled within 24 hours.

Residential rates between £300 to £400 per day.
