Personal Description:

I am an Oxford graduate (Worcester College), with an MA (Literae Humaniores - Latin and Greek language and literature, as well as ancient and modern philosophy).

I am also a professional classical singer with an extensive recording portfolio and experience singing around the world.

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

I am willing and able to teach pupils one-on-one or in groups.

Tutoring Experience:

I run a busy teaching practice in the centre of Norwich, where I teach singing, music, classical languages, classical literature, and Oxbridge Admissions preparation. I also teach via webcam, so I am able to take on students from anywhere in the UK (and I currently do, with one student who lives as far away as Cornwall).

I teach and tutor my academic subjects at a variety of levels, from pre-GCSE to undergraduate level, and my students most often go on to receive A*s and 1st Class results in their examinations.

I also work as a Vocal Strategist for the Norfolk Music Hub, where I deliver vocal workshops and training to teachers and choir leaders in Norfolk Schools.

Tutoring Approach:

My language teaching is based on the way in which classical languages are taught at Oxford, and I believe in the concurrent development both of analytical language skills and an instinct for the art of translation. I also believe that being disciplined about grammar is vital to getting the most out of learning a classical language. This is done by translation both from and into the classical language concerned, allowing for deep and meaningful investigation into how language is built.

My academic tutorials are based on the one-to-one tutorial system I experienced at Oxford. I am a firm believer in the Socratic method, and believe it to be the best way to develop a student's critical thinking skills. In essay subjects, essays are set, marked, and thoroughly discussed in order to develop a student's thoughts further and to better their presentation and arguing skills.

My singing teaching is based upon understanding the voice and its natural function within the body as a whole. This is an approach that involves *no* touching, and for those under 18, a parent/guardian is always invited to sit in. You are invited to discuss my singing teaching with me further.

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.

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