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 a wealth of experience gained from years working with world-class institutions both as a solo and choral singer.

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 have experience in teaching and tutoring classics, singing, and music theory in a one-on-one setting.

I also have experience of teaching in the classroom where I have worked with children aged 8-11 teaching a variety of subjects (including English Booster Classes, English Literature, Reading, Egyptology, and Drama). I also work as a choral workshop leader, and have worked as a singing leader for the acclaimed music outreach programme at Truro Cathedral.

I have a lot of experience of working with young people, with extensive experience gained from working with the Admissions department of Worcester College, as well as the Education Department at Truro Cathedral, where I delivered workshops and lectures to people of a variety of ages. As a member of Truro and Norwich Cathedral Choirs, I work with young people every day.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a traditional one, particularly when it comes to the teaching of Latin and Greek - I believe repetition and composition are vital in truly understanding a classical language. Wherever possible, I like to integrate digital resources in my teaching.

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.

I ask for a tutee to try their hardest - as long as they do, they will be met with a tutor who will give their all in order to help them achieve their goal, 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.
