About Me

As a teacher and your tutor, I am focused on giving you the skills and practice that you need, but with the approach that best suits you. I can give tough feedback if it’s needed, but will always remind the student of all the good things they are already doing too! I understand the UK school system and can provide a sympathetic ear and mentoring approach to students who might be feeling overwhelmed as exams approach.

In my spare time, I love reading (obviously!) and travelling. I also enjoy learning something new whenever I have the chance!

Tutor Experience

I qualified as a teacher in 2011 and have been teaching in classrooms and online ever since. As an online tutor, I have loved working with a much wider range of students than in school, teaching all the way from upper primary to adults. I have also enjoyed working with students from all over the world.

My style of teaching is tailored to the learner, and I am always happy to take requests for certain activities or approaches that the student finds useful. I always aim to provide a positive lesson with lots of praise and targeted feedback. I have lots of experience and patience with pupils with additional needs, particularly autism and processing difficulties. I understand how challenging the school environment can be and know the difference that a supportive and kind tutor can make.

Whilst success can take many forms (a student re-engaging with school, achieving their target grade, feeling more confident in lessons), I have worked with students who have achieved some excellent successes in recent years:

2021-2023
6 Grade A* - A’s at A level (Latin, Classical Greek, Classical Civilisation and English Literature)
2 A* (EPQ)
6 GCSE strong passes (ranging from 5-9 related to student ability – but all increased 1-2 grades)
4 passes at 11+
2 students achieving offers for Cambridge for Classics

Topic Expertise

Latin: Do you need support with GCSE or A-Level Latin? Have a child sitting the 13+? Perhaps you are an adult who has always wanted to learn, or maybe you have a more able child who needs an exciting challenge. I love teaching this wonderful language. I have experience with all the UK examination boards and have an excellent track record of success with exam candidates.

Classical Greek: Another wonderful ancient language! I can prepare students for the 13+ Greek paper (a very interesting choice for independent school entrance assessments) as well as support or teach GCSE and A level.

Classical Studies: I have taught this at A level and GCSE successfully for many years. I can help with reviewing the content, covering exam technique (and use of scholarship at A level), supporting you to do your very best in the exams.

Essays and Academic writing: Do you keep getting feedback about your essay structure? Do you find introductions and conclusions a challenge? Or would your child benefit from some focused work on formal writing? I can help with techniques and structures that will help your ideas get on the paper where they belong.

English Language and Literature: Are you a GCSE student who needs to improve your grades in Language or Literature? With a clear focus on skills and exam practice, it’s not too late to make a difference. I can teach all UK exam boards and any text the student is required to study. Perhaps you are finding the step up to A-level Literature a challenge and need to work on your essay technique. Is the feedback you are getting on your essays so limited it is difficult for your to know how to make progress? Let me work with you to give you the detailed feedback you need and the advice to enable you to succeed in examinations.

11+ and independent school admissions: Is your child taking the 11+ or another entrance exam? Whether you know exactly what you need or don’t know where to start, I can explain the process and guide your child through a structured program of preparation. I can also work with students needing creative writing for all independent entrance exams. Like anything else, directed practice and feedback will ensure they approach this with confidence.

UCAS: I can support many aspects of the university application process, including Oxbridge. I worked as a sixth-form tutor for four years, and during this time and in the years following have assisted many young people in successful applications. I can provide a challenging practice interview with feedback or offer advice about confident personal statement writing.

Client Reviews

Rebecca was the perfect tutor for me. Having found her with 2 weeks left to go before my first Latin exam, not at all confident in my language abilities, she helped me not only improve so quickly but also regain some faith in myself! She is kind but straightforward in her feedback, realistic but always encouraging, and most of all incredibly easy to talk to and get along with. I honestly do not know what I would have done without her and I only wish we could have been working together longer! Thank you!! From Ruby

- Latin

My daughter Ruby has just taken her last Latin A-level paper. Rebecca started tutoring her just six weeks ago, two weeks before her first exam, when Ruby suddenly realised she needed more support. She knew exactly what Ruby needed, was encouraging, supportive, motivating, and helped Ruby to achieve enormous improvements in her skills and confidence, very quickly, over a short and intense period. Ruby originally only wanted support with the language papers but was getting so much out of the sessions that she also asked for support with the literature sessions. I feel so very fortunate that we found Rebecca and so grateful to her. She made weeks that could have been miserable and stressful into ones that felt productive and (given the high-stakes) amazingly calm and relaxed.

- Latin

Rebecca has been an incredible Latin tutor. After taking a long break in the upper sixth and then leaving sixth form altogether due to health issues she helped greatly with getting me back on track to take my Latin A levels in the next year. Absolutely would recommend! ദ്ദി ( ᵔ ᗜ ᵔ )

- Latin

My daughter is 11 and has loved ancient history, deciding she'd like to do the Classical Civ. GCSE early. We approached Rebecca a month to go and asked her whether she could work with us to find the gaps, and help my daughter structure the bigger questions that she was struggling with. Rebecca was brilliant at providing a backbone for her revision, resourceful at directing where she should focus and great at keeping us on track for the exam. Despite her young age Rebecca pitched things brilliantly. Thank you :)

- Classical Civilisation

Excellent first lesson! Rebecca's affable demeanour made me feel really welcomed, and I'm eager to delve deeper into this topic under her guidance!






- Classical Civilisation

My lessons with Rebecca have made a huge difference to my latin grade. Her engaging teacher style has made lessons enjoyable and fun but also are hugely beneficial! I've really enjoy all of our time together, thank you so much!

- Latin

Great tuition in preparation for my classical civilisations a-level, really helpful advice and amazing resources. Helped me a lot with exam prep and tackling the content in an interactive and engaging way!

- Classical Civilisation

Rebecca is an incredible tutor who really helped me through the last few months of my Classical Civilisation A level. She is a brilliant teacher who willingly adapted to my learning style and delivered lessons in a way that directly tackled my concerns each session. Rebecca goes above and beyond as a tutor, she not only went over content and exam technique with me excellently but also shared her personally made powerpoints and files of analysis with me to really enhance my knowledge heading into my exams. It is easy to tell that Rebecca truly cares about her students and puts an incredible amount of time and effort into her teaching while also being a lovely and friendly person which makes the learning process so much easier. Thank you so much for all your help !

- Classical Civilisation

Rebecca has been wonderful in the run-up to my son's Classics GCSE. Rebecca was very responsive and flexible about session times and went straight to the nub of what needed to be done in a relatively short timeframe; she really honed his longer question technique and also added lots of detail that he would not have otherwise known. Thank you, Rebecca!
