Personal Description:

I am a Classics teacher based in Oxford, currently on sabbatical from full-time teaching to pursue further academic study.

Tutoring Experience:

I have four years of experience as a Classics teacher at independent senior schools in Oxfordshire and North London, as well as several years of experience as a private tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is based on listening to and respecting the tutee, aiming always to build independence and confidence on their part. Including as much active learning as possible is a key part of my tutoring in Classics: in Greek and Latin language work, I place more emphasis than many on composition into the language as a means of strengthening knowledge and understanding; in Classical Civilisation, Ancient History and the literary elements of Latin and Greek, I strive always to provoke a tutee to question accepted orthodoxies and to reach their own evidence-based and clearly expressed conclusions rather than teaching 'right answers' parrot-fashion. My experience is that this produces enjoyment and success for students in equal measure.
