I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years, and during this time I have taught Latin, Ancient Greek, and Classical Civilisation.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I think tuition sessions benefit from incorporating as much variety as possible, from vocabulary-picture association in memory games to unseen translations, tailoring activities to what will work most effectively for each student. I can provide tuition across the full spectrum of age and ability, from those facing particular challenges with their learning to assisting gifted students seeking to extend their studies. I always provide an updated 'Scheme of Work' to both pupil and parents after each session, so that everyone is clear what the targets are and what has been achieved.

What qualifications do you have?

I have a First Class degree (BA Hons) from the University of Durham in Combined Studies in Arts (Latin, Ancient Greek, and Music), and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from the University of Cambridge. I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years, and during this time I have taught Latin, Ancient Greek, and Classical Civilisation.

Tell us about your experience...

I have taught boys and girls in secondary schools (boarding and day, single-sex and co-ed), and have tutored pupils from Y5 onwards. In a school environment I have taught the top year (Y6) in a primary school, and all tiers of secondary school (including GCSEs, A-Levels, and the International Baccalaureate). I have also tutored pupils preparing for Common Entrance exams and scholarship exams.

What locations do you tutor in?

I tutor from my home in Rusthall (Tunbridge Wells) and online.

‘carpe diem’ (seize the day) and give Latin a go!
