Personal Description:

Hello! I'm Rachel, a teacher providing private tutoring services in Latin, Ancient Greek, Classical Civilisation and Ancient History in Leamington Spa, Warwick, Kenilworth, Stratford and surrounding areas. I currently teach Classics at an independent college in Northampton.

Throughout my studies of Classics I have picked up a broad base of knowledge around all aspects of Greek and Roman history, as well as learning Ancient Greek and Latin to an advanced level. I offer tuition in Latin and Ancient Greek for 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance, GCSE, AS and A-level, and Classical Civilisation and Ancient History at GCSE, AS and A-level. I can also provide lessons for younger or older age groups, such as young children, university students or casual learners. Please get in touch so we can design a course to suit your needs.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of teaching pupils at all levels, from primary school to university undergraduates. I am a part-time Classics teacher, and I also teach part-time for a charitable organisation which delivers university-style seminar programmes to pupils from low-university-uptake backgrounds.

I have taught ancient languages across Key Stages 2-5 and at university, ranging from large classes of 30 primary school pupils to one-on-one tuition for scholarship entrance exams. This means I have a very broad skill base from which to design lessons to best suit your needs and ensure we make great progress in your language tuition.

I have taught history-based courses to students across Key Stages 2-5 in various schools around Greater London and the Midlands. I also taught history seminars to undergraduate university students during my PhD studies, meaning I am perfectly placed to guide students from writing their very first history essay through to taking GCSE and A-level exams and writing university dissertations.

Pupil testimonials:

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for teaching us. It's been a really fun experience and something that I'll always remember and share. Before the process I wasn't that interested in this part of fistory, if at all, so it made me open my mind to something new. It was great to still be able to have a laugh as well as learn new things. Thank you also for not getting too annoyed if I handed things in late!” – Charlie, Year 9 Brilliant Club pupil (Roman History)

"The lessons are awesome and fun!" - Patrick, Year 5 Iris Project pupil (Latin)

"Rachel is a very good teacher, my son was a beginner in Latin and now he is doing incredibly well. She has covered over half of the book using just 8 lessons. It usually takes beginners a full academic year to cover that book, so my son is working very quickly because her teaching skills are very good and I am really impressed with her." - Neeru, mum of Year 8 pupil preparing for the Eton King's Scholarship exam (Latin)

"Rachel was the best seminar leader I have had all year and her encouragement and input helped me greatly in being successful in my coursework and understanding of the module. She made debates enjoyable and deeply interesting in seminars and her teaching style was very concise." - Anonymous 1st year undergraduate student (Roman History)

"I really really enjoyed Latin, I would say that I worked hard!" - Ana, Year 5 Iris Project pupil (Latin)

"I valued Rachel's passion for her subject." - Anonymous 1st year undergraduate student (Roman History)

“Thank you very much for teaching me this course, I have enjoyed every moment of it! I have found it really useful for all writing I do in school and I can now talk to my Grandad, who is very interested in the Romans, about some of the things I have learnt.” – Isaac, Year 9 Brilliant Club pupil (Roman History)

Tutoring Approach:

First and foremost, I believe learning should be fun - if it isn't, then it isn’t being taught correctly! I always try and make my classes stimulating for my pupils, breaking up long sessions of reading or writing with fun activities which offer different ways of learning about the ancient world and its languages. I am extremely passionate about ancient history and this comes across in my teaching at all levels. I tutor because I enjoy seeing pupils discover new aspects of ancient languages and civilisations and providing guidance to help them develop their own academic skills.

I am happy to tailor my lessons to any individual or group who seeks my help, whether your focus is on language learning, increasing your social history knowledge or using the ancient languages to improve literacy. I can provide tuition as the sole teacher for private study, or as extra help for a subject which you are studying at school. If you choose me as your tutor, I will share my knowledge and enthusiasm with you and provide lots of feedback and encouragement. My aim is to make you as enthusiastic about my subjects as I am!
