Personal Description:

I hold an MA honours degree in Classics from Oxford University and I have been teaching in some of the country's top 10 secondary schools (up to A2) for the past few years (I hold a current CRB certificate). My current school is listed as top of the league table for the county, and my previous school is second!

Tutoring Experience:

Alongside teaching in schools,I have privately tutored adults and children for the past 9 years, in both Latin and Ancient Greek, taking them from absolute beginner through to gaining excellent GCSE, AS and A2 grades. I also have lots of experience in preparing children for the Common Entrance Exam (11 or 13+).

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about all things classical and enjoy passing on this enthusiasm to those that I teach. I believe that a language is best learned with understanding of the culture from which it sprang, and with this in mind, I pepper all my language lessons with supporting cultural references. Both Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome were such rich cultures that it would be a shame to learn their languages in isolation - plus, I have found that hearing about some relevant philosophy, art or literature aids both concentration and memory!

As well as teaching Latin, Ancient Greek and Class Civ, I also have tutored extensively in English. The grammar foundations and literary analysis demanded in a classical education are without par and I very much enjoy passing these on to students who are either struggling or looking to enhance their skills. I also have experience in teaching English as a foreign language.

I am happy to teach in my home in Central London or I can travel anywhere within London and the Herts/Essex border.

I charge £30-£40 an hour depending on age of student and the time and distance to be travelled. References are available on request.
