Tutor in Archway, North London

Dynamic Modern Languages, English and Latin Tutor

Having recently graduated from the University of Oxford, I am now studying for my MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute. I have relatively few contact hours so can afford to be flexible with my time as tutor, and am available to travel across Central and North London on weekdays and weekends.

I have experience as both a private tutor and a classroom teacher for students of all ages, from primary through to adult students. I have taught French and Italian at all levels, Latin to A Level and English and Mandarin to GCSE. I would be more than happy, however, to teach more broadly across the humanities in subjects such as History or History of Art. My focus is first to assess the key things the student is struggling with, before honing their individual strengths and creating lesson plans that might resonate with them more than their schoolwork has. I aim to make my lessons as engaging and dynamic as possible within the parameters of the student’s course requirements.

I also welcome any students who need guidance with their university applications: either, more generally, with personal statement preparation, or more specifically, with the Oxbridge admissions process. I hope that, whilst sticking to the course content, my lessons will offer students new approaches to their subjects, which might even give them an extra spark to stand out amongst other prospective university applicants.

As far as conversation lessons in foreign languages are concerned, I have experience teaching French, Italian and Mandarin and I would use the initial conversation/ meeting as a point of departure for subsequent lessons. Ordinarily, I do not follow a specific textbook but rather plan my lessons according to what my student wants to discuss and the areas of grammar they may need to work on.

Please feel free to contact me about possible timings and/ or if you have any queries.

Application for role as Tutor

I have known Seth for over 10 years. He is highly intelligent with a deep love of Italian and French culture. His academic achievements in both Italian and French are outstanding as you will know from his CV.
In recent years he has been my tutor in Italian, mainly conversation as this is what I requested. He has proved highly effective in this role. He is articulate, extremely personable, very reliable with a great passion for his subject which is highly engaging and infectious. I understand that his French is even stronger than his Italian ( although I cannot vouch for this as a student). I strongly recommend him to you for tutoring in both languages.
I have had several very enjoyable and instructive lessons with him.
