Home Tuition for Latin and Greek (Ancient) in Newton Abbot

While working towards my Classics degree, in addition to Latin and Greek I studied Ancient History, and specialised in my chosen authors and selected aspects of the languages and literature. My particular interests were Greek drama, philology - the derivation and development of words into Greek and Latin and through to their use in modern languages, and the works of Lucretius and Euripides.

Tutoring Experience

Throughout my career in IT I have used teaching and training skills to take formal courses and to coach staff on a one to one basis in specific IT and management skills, so I have a long background of teaching and working with people to pass on my skills and knowledge.
Over the last two academic years I have been teaching both Latin and Greek, in both cases to students who have been unable to take the whole course at their schools. I taught my Latin student the set texts parts of the syllabus, and she achieved an A* in her GCSE. My Greek student, who worked on the subject only with myself not at school, achieved an A at GCSE. I have also tutored English GCSE with a boy who achieved the grade C that he needed for his sixth form school of choice.

Tutoring Approach

I provide relaxed and friendly one to one tuition school pupils and adults. I can cover the Latin language and Latin authors and their works, designed to fit with your needs and areas of interest, and similarly I give tuition in Ancient Greek and the Greek authors, and in English and English Literature. I offer Latin tuition to all levels of the school curriculum through GCSE and A-level, or if you wish, just studying the language and the culture for your own interest and pleasure. For Ancient Greek and English I offer a similar approach up to GCSE.
