Personal Description:

I have taught in secondary schools for more than a decade and was until recently Head of Classics at Ibstock Place School. I am currently taking a sabbatical in order to complete a Masters degree specialising in Latin literature and Ancient History.

Tutoring Experience:

I have thirteen years experience teaching Latin, Greek, Ancient History and Classical Civilisation at GCSE, A-Level and IB. I have taught at top UK schools including St Mary's Ascot, The King's School Canterbury and Godolphin & Latymer. In addition to this I have ten years experience as a private tutor with invariable success at Common Entrance, GCSE, A-Level and Oxbridge. I also teach at the JACT Latin Summer School where my roles include tutor, lecturer and House Master.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor my lessons to the individual, whether they require entry into Public School, a better understanding of GCSE grammar, or being stretched beyond the syllabus and initiated into the greater mysteries of a classical education. I believe that Latin and Greek must be read to be understood, that language is best taught through literature. For that reason I give particular emphasis to the rich history and colourful mythology of the Greeks and Romans. This way learning happens naturally through enjoyment. A life-long love of classical art inspires me to weave into my lessons an appreciation for ancient culture and its relevance today. My students tell me that I am knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun. They trust that I get them results.
