Home Tuition for Latin and Greek (Ancient) in Tunbridge Wells

I am a fully qualified Classics teacher and have been teaching Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation for over 15 years. I love the structure of the Latin and Greek languages and the beauty of their vocabulary, now intertwined in our language. The culture, history, and creativity found in the different sources of literature and artefacts continue to intrigue and inspire. Helping students understand and master the workings of these 'immortal' languages (and realising it's not too complicated after all!), and thereby access texts in their original Latin or Greek rather than a translation, is always a great source of joy to me.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught boys and girls in secondary schools (boarding and day, single-sex and co-ed), and have tutored pupils from Y5 onwards. In a school environment I have taught the top year (Y6) in a primary school, and all tiers of secondary school (including GCSE, A-Level, and the International Baccalaureate). I also have a lot of experience helping pupils who are preparing for Common Entrance exams (ISEB) and scholarship exams. I am experienced teaching a wide range of students (from complete beginners to university students), encompassing a broad range of abilities.

Tutoring Approach

I use a variety of methods and resources in my teaching, and have experience using a wide range of textbooks and source materials. I supplement these books with my own resources, which I create and tailor to meet the needs of each pupil’s abilities and preferences. I can provide tuition across the full spectrum of age and ability, from those facing particular challenges with their learning to assisting gifted students seeking to extend their studies, to pupils starting from scratch for fun! I always provide an updated 'Scheme of Work' to both pupil and parents after each session, so that everyone is clear what the targets are and what has been achieved. I am flexibile with lessons - have pupils I see on a regular basis; those who want shorter but more intensive revision sessions; and those whom I see on an ad hoc basis, as and when the need arises.

For online teaching I use Zoom, I don’t use Skype.

Please note that lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours' notice will be charged at the full rate. Lessons cancelled between 24-48 hours beforehand will be charged at 50% of the full rate.
