Home Tuition for Latin and Greek (Ancient) in Horsham

I am an experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a great love of languages, both ancient and modern. I have two degrees: a BA from the University of Bristol taken in 1981, and then over 20 years later an MA from UCL.

I've recently studied for a teaching diploma, specialising in tutoring individuals or small groups, from school age through to adult learners. I enjoy learning, and I enjoy helping others in their learning too!

Tutoring Experience

  • Private tutor with a wealth of experience across all age groups – my students/tutees have ranged in age from 12 to 75. I have coached for exams (CE, GCSE, A level, university exams), with excellent results for my students, and I have tutored adult learners who have come to me for a variety of reasons: some always wanted to study Latin at school but didn't have the chance, others like the idea of reading Virgil or Cicero.
  • Tutor in adult education, currently teaching Italian, Latin, Ancient Greek and Roman History in West Sussex.
  • Tutor at The London Summer School in Classics.
  • Tutor at a leading university, taking undergraduate seminar classes.

Tutoring Approach

The key to successful tutoring lies in tailoring the content of the classes to the student's needs and objectives. For GCSE/A level, a rigorous approach may be required to ensure that grammar and vocabulary is secure, whereas an adult learner may want to progress quickly to adapted text. Whatever the case, I think learning or revision should be fun too, and I aim to make my lessons as enjoyable as possible, whilst keeping a close eye on exam deadlines!
