Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Elaine, and I've just started a PhD in Classics and Ancient History at the University of Liverpool. I'm friendly, approachable, and enthusiastic. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

Tutoring Experience:

I started tutoring during my A-level studies, working with a younger Latin student on a bi-weekly basis to improve her knowledge of grammar, and boost her translation confidence. I continued this kind of tutoring at university, through the peer language mentoring system within my department. I worked with students of various different year groups, providing tailor made tutorials to tackle their individual academic needs. For the past two years, I have worked for an online tutoring company, tutoring GCSE and A Level students in Latin, History, and Classical Civilization. I have also been working face to face with three A Level Classics students in my local area.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to make sure that every tutorial is suited to the specific needs of my tutees. I will always take the time to figure out what kind of learning activities work best for each individual-whether these are short revision exercises at the beginning and end of each session, tasks based around different historical sources, or simple grammar quizzes. I find that it is important to ensure that the tutee is confident at every stage of the tutorial. It is vital that they feel as though they have control over their own learning, as this simple principle often generates lots of confidence! I am a great believer in helping students to exceed their expectations, and those of their teachers. In most cases, is achieved through starting with the basics, and building up the student's understanding from there, with regular revision and refresher activities to keep all material fresh in mind. I don't shy away from introducing material slightly outside the curriculum. Often, if a student is capable of working with this material, it shows that they have a solid understanding of their required course, and they have the confidence to challenge themselves.
