I am a dedicated, experienced tutor of English Literature and Classics.
After studying at the University of Manchester, achieving an Honours Degree in Classics, I pursued a Master of Arts Degree in English Literature achieving a Merit.
I do offer discounts. I also do proof-reading for free for long-term students. You may also wonder why my prices are relatively lower - the classics shouldn't require a stately home and an elevator up the Ivory Tower to access. If you are reading this. then I was probably in the same situation as you and greatly empathize.
If you are truly struggling to afford, please let me know and we can come to some sort of arrangement.
I have experience tutoring and teaching at the University of Manchester - helping with the Greek and Latin languages for first and second years. Here, I was involved in teaching New Testament, or 'Koine' Greek, assisting students in translating a section of the Bible for Greek Orthodox readings, as well as passages of Plato, Homer and Hesiod which feature on the classics website Perseus.

I do not believe in the old 'rope-learning' methods of tuition, omitting any explanation of how the subject works. Subjects have rules and complexities which often are the cause of a downfall within the subject as a whole.
A rapport is important - I am friendly! I never intend to hurry my student along faster than they can go, nor too quickly.
Subjects offered such as English, I use the required text to teach. But again, it may not be the text that is difficult, but a fall in a particular area. I have many students jumping from GCSE to A-Level and finding their grades to have dramatically dropped. This is often not the pupil, but a particular area within the subject.
