London - Linguistics - MA

I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher with over twenty years experience of teaching in English schools, both at primary and at secondary level. I am currently teaching Latin to students from year 9 to Year 13 and Classical Civilisation in the Sixth Form. My students regularly exceed their target grades and I mentor teacher trainees. I am a mother tongue speaker of Italian and hold a PGCE as well as a masters degree in the teaching of a second language. Over the last ten years I have taught mostly classical subjects, including Latin at all levels and have successfully prepared students for GCSE and A level in Italian, Latin and Classical Civilisation, including Oxbridge candidates. I have also taught adult education classes and have tutored a number of private students, aged 10 to 60! I enjoy the flexibility of online tutoring, which I have found to be very effective in delivering excellent sessions.

About Me

I am a keen reader of historical novels, Robert Harris' trilogy of Cicero is one of my favourite books. I enjoy detective novels, especially Simenon, which I love to read in the original French.

Tutor Experience

I have taught Italian, Latin and Classical Civilisation to A level for many years. I love my subjects and love helping students develop their understanding and grow in confidence.
I am an examiner for OCR both at GCSE and A level, this enables me to teach very effectively for exam success.

Client Reviews

My daughter says Cecilia is very nice and patience. And her teaching is clear. Sidra has started enjoying Latin more now since she began taking lessons from Cecilia.
