I love Greek and Roman mythology, Latin Literature and both Ancient and Modern Languages. I am a native speaker of Italian and I am fluent in English and Portuguese. I am a voracious reader and enjoy writing in my free time.
I am a qualified teacher of Latin and Classics, with a PGCE from the University of Cambridge and a BA (Hons) and MA from the University of Manchester.
I teach Latin, Classical Civilisation, Theroy of Knowledge, Italian and Humanities throughout KS3 and 4, and sixth form. I have been tutoring students in Latin, Italian and Classical Civilisation, both in person and online for more than 5 years. I offer tutoring in those subjects as well as notes and mind maps tailored on the student's needs - just ask for more details.
My teaching approach for Latin is reading based, building on grammar and vocabulary whilst enjoying the cultural and historical side too. With regards to Italian, my approach builds up conversation and listening skills, using audiobooks and grammar textbooks.
Experienced with the WJEC, OCR and IB exam boards, for both Latin and Classical Civilisation; Edexcel for Italian.
Areas of experise in Latin: poetry of Catullus, Ovid, Virgil, Horace, Propertius; historiography by Livy, Suetonius, Cassius Dio, Tacitus. My MA dissertation was on Ovid's Heroides.
Areas of experise in Classical Civilisation (OCR modules): World of the Hero, Love and Relationships, Politcs of the Late Republic, Greek Theatre, Greek Religion and Imperial Image.

The feedback was very useful which is really helpful
"Arianna has been helping my son towards his Latin A Level and has been a great help. The lessons are enjoyable and informative and has assisted with improving his predicted grade for UCAS applications. Highly recommended." (Parent of A Level Latin student)
