Oxford - Classics - BA, MA (Oxon), MA (Birkbeck)

I have taught Classics in leading independent schools for the last 13 years, as well as acting as Head of Department, and Director of Talented and Gifted schemes. I have a wealth of experience teaching GCSE, A Level and IB Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation. I have in-depth knowledge of the specifications set by examination boards, recent changes made to linear A Levels, and advice about how to succeed in getting elusive A* grades.

More recently, having become a full time private tutor, I have gained extensive experience in tutoring undergraduates in Classical languages, and supporting students familiar with both Latin and Greek, and those embarking upon ab initio degrees. Their progress has been remarkable so far, and they have achieved fantastic results in their final year examinations. I am also available to support undergraduates and postgraduates with dissertations and essay writing on a wide range of Classics related subjects.

About Me

I live in Oxfordshire and enjoy reading, walking in the countryside and riding horses.

Tutor Experience

My teaching combines exceptional subject knowledge with a broad range of experience, which enables pupils of all abilities to achieve the best results they are capable of. I have successfully encouraged a huge range of pupils to take Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation on to A Level, and to pursue the study of Classics at University, and at Oxbridge in particular. I have a wealth of experience in preparing students for public examinations in all areas of the Classical curriculum, however I also place great emphasis on their development beyond the syllabus, by developing critical thinking skills, independence of mind, the ability to debate, and the confidence needed to conduct their own research for the EPQ
