Wandsworth Tutor

I am a young qualified Latin and Ancient Greek teacher living in Putney, London. I have a First Class BA in Classics from Cambridge, where I also received my teaching qualification (PGCE). I then taught Latin and Greek at a private school (Years 7-13) in London for two years before pursuing other interests. I remain involved in education by tutoring and intend on returning to teaching in the future.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher in Classics (PGCE, Cambridge). I taught Latin and Greek for two years at a private school in London to all years from Year 7 to 13.
I have 200+ hours of private tutoring experience, including 40+ hours over Skype, in Latin and Greek from Common Entrance to A level.
My other tutoring experience includes:
Maths A level, GCSE, Primary
English as a Foreign Language (IELTS)
11+ (CEM)
Common Entrance
Oxbridge interviews

Tutoring Approach

My strengths lie in making my tutees relaxed and comfortable: my students work hard and learn not because they have to, but because they want to. I learn where my students need to improve and how my students learn best and adapt my sessions to their needs. Some students need to learn by rote, others need to put it into practice. However we do it, my students and I work together to reach our targets and achieve success with dynamic and enjoyable lessons.
