Dedicated classicist with substantial experience!

I am a Cambridge University supervisor offering GCSE, AS, A-level and undergraduate level tuition on both weekdays and weekends in London (fees below). Keen to help those who genuinely want to learn or who are struggling to achieve their potential!

I attended Wycombe Abbey School and graduated from Clare College, Cambridge with a BA hons in Classics.

I have been studying Latin and Greek for over 10 years, enjoying substantial experience teaching Latin, Ancient Greek (inc. New Testament Greek) and Classical Civilisation at all levels.

I have also had considerable practice supporting students through scholarship and school/university entry exams and interviews.

For your peace of mind, I have a full enhanced DBS check. I am based in North-West London but will travel anywhere within reason.

Infectiously enthusiastic, committed and supportive teacher

Harriet was my Ancient Greek and Latin supervisor in my third year at the University of Cambridge. She has a patient, kind and tailored approach to tutoring, and committed herself not only to ensuring I covered the material and progressed academically, but also to fostering interest and enthusiasm in the subject and building my confidence.

Harriet tutored my 16 year old son in preparation for this summer's GCSE exams. He was not especially confident in the subject and therefore Harriet was brought in to help reinforce some of the basic grammar and help instil some confidence in the subject. Our son had a dozen or so intensive lessons with Harriet, during which time she managed to lay down the foundations for a very solid and reliable attainment of the syllabus and most importantly, an enjoyment in the subject. We found Harriet's enthusiasm and delight in the her subject to be infectious and her obvious dedication to her work served as a wonderful example for our boy.
I recommend her most highly.

Extremely friendly and helpful

Harriet tutored me for the second year of my Latin A-Level course. She was incredibly kind and supportive, giving me the self-confidence I lacked and filling the gaps in my knowledge so that I was able to achieve the grade I wanted. I am mostly thankful for how much more I enjoyed Latin once Harriet started tutoring me!
Subject:
Latin (A-Level)

I achieved my desired grade in Latin A-Level.

An incredibly enthusiastic and supportive teacher!

Harriet was a fantastic tutor; she could handle any question I threw at her and explained anything I couldn't understand. The resources she gave me were invaluable as were her thoughts on the literature we looked at. She helped me with everything, from my university application to reading fun texts outside of the Syllabus.

Overall, I would definitely recommend her (and have done - she now tutors two of my friends!)

An excellent teacher.

Harriet has taught my son for both GCSE Latin and A Level Classics- he gained an A in both. Harriet has excellent subject knowledge , she draw from a wide range of texts and sources to support my son. Harriet was well organised and created a schedule which clearly showed how and what he would learn.This not only kept him on track but also allowed me to see how he was progressing. As a teacher Harriet has a wonderful , nurturing style. She is clear about her learning outcomes , her sessions were carefully crafted to gain the maximum from my son, developing where he was weak and challenging where he was strong. Being home schooled, Harriet was also very aware of my sons special needs and I am so appreciative of how she adapted her teaching to those and how flexible she was. I very quickly saw him shift from just learning his subject to loving his subject. I was impressed with how detailed they would debate the subject and how confident my son could argue over particular areas he was learning. I would highly recommend Harriet to any one she is professional , always on time and dedicated to her students. Thank you Harriet.
