Latin and Greek (Ancient) Lessons in Chichester

I am an Oxford graduate (Worcester College), with a degree in Literae Humaniores - Latin and Greek language and literature, as well as ancient and modern philosophy (BA 2013, MA 2016)

I am also a professional classical singer and conductor, active around the UK. I am a Lay Vicar at Chichester Cathedral, where I sing professionally with the cathedral choir.

Friendly, approachable, and professional, I am passionate about teaching and helping people to develop their knowledge and skills.

Tutoring Experience

I run a teaching practice in the centre of Chichester, where I teach and tutor singing, music, classical languages and classical literature. I also tutor online, so I am able to take on students from anywhere.

I teach and tutor my academic subjects at a variety of levels, from pre-GCSE to undergraduate and master's level, and my students most often go on to receive A*s and 1st Class results in their examinations. I am also happy to tutor younger pupils towards Common Entrance examinations.

I have experience in preparing students for Oxbridge Admissions, and offer such preparation for Classics and related subjects (including Archaeology and Philosophy - please send me a message to discuss this further).

I am perfectly happy to take on casual learners - please get in touch to discuss this more.

Tutoring Approach

My language teaching is based on the way in which classical languages are taught at Oxford, and I believe in the development both of analytical language skills and an instinct for the art of translation. For GCSE and A-Level, it is important for vocabulary and grammar to be secure, so I encourage a rigorous approach to language, but one that is interesting.

I ask for a tutee to try their hardest - as long as they do, they will be met with an enthusiastic, patient, and understanding tutor, a tutor dedicated to his teaching and his pupil. It is vital to tailor sessions to the student, and I customise my lessons for each student I have based on their needs.

I have a fully enhanced DBS disclosure, as well as safeguarding training validated by the NSPCC.
