Hi, I am a 22 year old ex-teacher, turned Financial Consultant who wishes to keep the spark of teaching Classics alive in me. I can tutor in Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation from GCSE to A Level. I am passionate about my subject among other things. I also love sport: rugby, football, cricket, skiing, tennis golf etc; as well as music: I play guitar and sing. I grew up on a farm in rural Warwickshire so also have a love for all types of animal.
I'd like to think I am fun and enthusiastic and I can be a help to any tutee whatever the age and ability. My motto is that 'natural talent doesn't exist' and I try and get all my pupils to believe this by pushing the boundaries of what they think is possible.
I have a degree in Classics from Durham University, and I taught a year in Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation at Cranleigh School, Surrey. I have good experience with children, having been a private tutor to a family friend, as well as be a mentor to children at both Shrewsbury High Prep School and St Roberts of Newminster. Moreover, I used to teach 7 different classes at Cranleigh from year 9 to 13. I also taught classes with 1, 2 and 3 people in them so I am used to managing more intimate academic environments.
I am also an older brother to 19 year old and 16 year old brother so I am very aware of the struggles of anyone still in school.
My approach to tutoring is fun, informal, but well structured like a lesson. I first of all need to know in what area the child is struggling, make a plan, and focus in on delivering a good solution to their problem.
The basic structure of the session with be establishing what they already know/do not know, doing a variety of different activities, doing some quick fire vocab/grammar tests, and then finish by concluding what they have learnt that day.
If you wanted a more intense style of tutoring, I am happy to stay at your house for a few days-a week so we can get 3/4 hours of tutoring in the day time. Enquire for details.
