Personal Description:

I am a 19-year-old student who is currently reading Ancient Languages at University College London. Having passed the 11+ examination I studied at King Edward VI Grammar School (KEGS) for my GCSEs, obtaining five A*s, five As and 2 Bs, and A Levels in French and German, for which I obtained the highest marks in my cohort, as well as Latin and Philosophy, whilst also teaching myself elementary Ancient Greek. I am more than happy to provide 11+ tuition as well as tutoring for my A Level subjects and related areas.

During term times I am capable of providing tuition within most of Greater London.

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst at KEGS I undertook the Foreign Language Leadership Award, where one teaches a modern foreign language (in my case Japanese) to primary school age children who are unexperienced in that subject, as well as offering more informal tuition and guidance to younger students in Latin in school. I was an integral member of KEGS's John Dee Society, in which lectures on specific areas of my academic subjects were prepared and delivered by students to other students and staff who would not be conversant in those areas. I have also had several years experience in teaching young children at my local church's Sunday School about Christian theology and ethics.

Tutoring Approach:

For all subjects I believe communication is key; knowledge is best acquired through use and if you can't explain a concept then it's unlikely you fully understand it. Moreover ease of communication will benefit students both now and in the long term. I believe in a strong emphasis on learning the foundations of language- for fluency to be possible an understanding of linguistic structure and organisation is crucial (and often overlooked in language learning, due to an underestimation of the abilities of students). When it comes to philosophy and theology I believe that no opinion should go unchallenged and no subject should be out of bounds for discussion.

The organisation of thoughts is also very important to me; laying out ideas clearly and systematically not only exposes problematic areas for students in a subject but also makes work and exams much easier to tackle. And this is something the student is best placed to do; if they can go along their trains of thought and identify their own signal failures and leaves on the tracks, then we can work together to get them back on track again.
