I have been teaching and tutoring for over 10 years, and during this time I have taught Latin, Ancient Greek, and Classical Civilisation.
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 GCSEs, A-Levels, and the International Baccalaureate). I have also tutored pupils preparing for Common Entrance exams and scholarship exams.
I think tuition sessions benefit from incorporating as much variety as possible, from vocabulary-picture association in memory games, to the solid staple of vocabulary tests. I assess the student's needs, and then together we will set realistic targets. 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. I am equally happy doing one-on-one tuition and small-group tuition. 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.
