Personal Description:

I am a former prep school headmaster who has taught (and continues to teach) Latin and Greek for over 30 years. I have used a number of course books and prepared children for Common Entrance, Public School Scholarship and GCSE. I have also taught English in prep schools, preparing children for Common Entrance and KS2 Sats. I have inspected classics for the Independent Schools Inspectorate and have recently been commisioned to write the Latin section of the new Independent Curriculum.

Tutoring Experience:

I recently retired as Head of Classics (part-time) at Port Regis School in Shaftesbury. I have taught classics in the following schools: Durston House (also Deputy Head); St. Edward's Reading and Tower House (both also as Headmaster); Junior King's Canterbury; and Dolphin School, Berkshire. I have taken children on classical trips to Greece, Italy and numerous sites in the UK. I have also directed children in classical plays. My most recent tutees got A* and A in GCSE Latin (OCR). I am also very familiar with the Cambridge Latin Course and the WJEC Latin exams.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in developing lively intercourse between tutor and tutee. However, with Latin, it is essential that the tutee commits to some learning of vocabulary and grammar between each session.
