Information About David - Tower Hamlets tutor - (1 review)
I am a Classics graduate with both an MA and a BA from Durham University, in the course of which I very happily studied Latin, Ancient Greek and Ancient History, Philosophy and Literature, all in great depth. These studies have also endowed me with the key skills required for other subjects, principally English and post-Classical History, and I have retained my interest in both.
I currently work for a leading Research Consultancy in London.
I have recently returned from India, where, in addition to travelling, I spent a month teaching English, taking individual responsibility for three classes with class sizes ranging from forty to fifty five children. The experience was a real challenge, but all the more satisfying and enjoyable for that! I also have some experience as a teaching assistant at primary level.
I prefer a (reasonably) relaxed approach that is, crucially, flexible to the specific needs and ambitions of the student, pushing them to higher levels whilst also encouraging greater confidence in their ability. I believe that more practical, exercise based learning is best, engaging the student most effectively by allowing them structured opportunities to demonstrate and test their knowledge and progress, learning from mistakes and filling any gaps under the guidance of the tutor.
