Latin and/or ancient Greek offered from beginner upwards. Most materials are provided (apart from set texts for GCSE or A level) and travel is negotiable. AS level is also covered if required as is Classical Civilisation.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I believe that all students can achieve great results with enough time and encouragement. I have a fantastic range of resources which I adapt to suit the individual, including a number of hands-on tools which are popular with younger students.

What qualifications do you have?

I have a Classics degree from Oxford University plus a teaching diploma from the University of Bedfordshire.

Tell us about your experience...

I have been a teacher in some capacity or another for 20 years, including teaching Latin GCSE and A level at Pates grammar school, Kings Gloucester, CLC and Cheltenham College, I am currently an examiner for OCR and WJEC in both Latin GCSE and Classical Civilisation A level. I have helped OCR produce a number of online resources to support the new Latin and Classical Civilisation syllabuses. In addition, I have published a number of teaching guides for GCSE and A level literature via Zigzag publishing. I also teach Common Entrance, including scholarship entry to top private schools.

What locations do you tutor in?

Cheltenham, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Cirencester and environs.

What is your personal message to students?

Latin is great fun. It uses logic and common sense and is much loved on a CV. Learning Latin will boost your vocabulary, help with your spelling and will expand your understanding of literature. It's a varied and challenging qualification, but hugely rewarding and enjoyable.
