Tutor in Latin, Ancient Greek, Class Civ, French and English
I am in my 40s and have taught full-time in two girls’ schools in London for four years in total and have several years’ experience of tutoring. I have also taught undergraduates and postgraduates at university. As well as having experience in teaching and academia I have also worked full-time for a publishing company for 4 years.
I enjoy tutoring, and like to try to help my students achieve the highest standards they are capable of. I try to establish a good and comfortable working relationship with them. I use past examination questions where appropriate. I might also use alternative textbooks to those used by the students at their school in order to provide a different angle on the subject/language, again where this seems appropriate. I aim to include a variety of activities in a lesson and to make lessons enjoyable as well as educational and useful.
I have a B.A. Hons (2.1) in Classics; a PGCE in Classics; an M.A. and PhD in Classics (Latin literature).
