Richmond upon Thames Tutor

I'm currently studying Classics at UCL, after taking a gap year to study Ancient Greek and do some teaching.

Now I am also volunteering in the classics department of Tiffin School, helping the teachers out with whichever kids are struggling.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught Latin to several groups of primary children, following the Minimus course. I am also a regular piano teacher, helping my tutees to improve their general technique.

I have provided tuition for at least 5 children between the ages of 5-13 through this site alone, primarily in Maths, but also in Latin and Piano.

Tutoring Approach

Generally speaking, I find that the technique of finding the student's weak spot/s and then building up their confidence in that/those area/s is very effective. I achieve this by regular (very small scale) testing, for example weekly vocab tests. It doesn't take very long, and allows me to focus the student's learning much more.
