Innovative and inspiring Classics Teacher

I began my teaching career in 2011, shortly after completing my CELTA qualification. My first teaching job was to teach English to university students and adults at Milner School of English in Wimbledon. After this, I travelled to Australia, and continued to teach English as a foreign language in language schools in Perth and Sydney, as I travelled around the country. In 2012 I was accepted onto the Teach First Leadership Development Programme, and switched to teaching English to students in a challenging secondary school in Chatham, Medway. In 2013 I moved back to London and began working in the Independent Sector, teaching Latin and Classical Civilization to GCSE and A-level. Since this time, I have also privately tutored students for AS and A2 Latin examinations. Since September 2016 I have worked at Northcote Lodge preparatory school in Wandsworth Common, preparing students for the demands of Common Entrance and Scholarship Exams.

A dedicated Classics teacher

As a colleague, Liam has been excellent to work with. Extremely knowledgeable about all things classical, he expects his students to have a high level of achievement and does all that he can to assist them in this. He has a good rapport with pupils and, in my opinion, structures his lessons in ways which will elicit the best from them. He is acutely aware of the expectations of the exam boards, and tailors his lessons and marking accordingly. I believe that as a tutor Liam would get the best out of his tutees and ensure that they achieve their potential.

Focussed Latin teacher able to engage our shy son

The first lesson went well. Our son found Liam very approachable and engaging with good sense of humour. All this is far from the classics teacher stereotype in our mental model. We hope Liam can inspire the reluctant classist In our boy to get a good score in Latin, which is not a strong subject for him.. As Liam teaches at a school he is familiar with demands of curriculum at various stages and is proposing targeted work to address the gaps. In a nutshell, it is a good strart... More to follow as the lessons progress further.

Latin (Scholarship)

To be concluded, early days preparing for Winchester scholarship

Outstanding Classics teacher

Liam is an outstanding and inspiring teacher who has managed to engage my son in Classics with newfound enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject. Liam's easygoing demeanour and fantastic sense of humour have established an excellent rapport that has boosted my son's attitude and approach to his work enormously.
Liam's knowledge of exam boards and expectations in the marking system really paid off with my son's recent mock exams, a really promising start from a motivating teacher who builds up confidence and progression with his positive and innovative tuition.
With more excellent lessons scheduled in the build up to the final exams and Liam's ability to instil full potential, we are now hopeful in achieving a good A-level result.
I would highly recommend Liam to help any student realise their full potential.

Excellent tutor for GCSE Classics

My daughter was revising for her GCSE in Classical Civilisation and realised that she needed some extra support with the organisation and presentation of her essays. Liam was a fantastic tutor, polite and friendly, very well organised and with an impressive knowledge of the subject, he was able to provide some practical advice that improved my daughter's performance in the OCR Classical Civilisation GCSE exam.
Subject:
Classics
Outcome:
Yesterday we received the results and we are delighted to say that my daughter obtained an A*. We are grateful to Liam and truly recommend his lessons.
