I am a professional tutor with 8 years of experience, mainly in maths. My maths tutoring began when i helped my brother achieve an A* in his maths GCSE many years ago, having been predicted a C. I can also tutor classics and modern Greek. I have an MA in modern Greek literature from King's College London. I love teaching and I get a thrill from getting my students through their exams.

I have tutored Latin and Ancient Greek for a year now and find it incredibly satisfying. My past experience tutoring students of varying abilities and enthusiasm for the languages has really helped to clarify my teaching approach. I really enjoy helping students achieve their goals in these challenging languages and always try to provide interesting set-texts and homework assignments to facilitate understanding of some potentially dry grammatical topics. As a general rule I like to gear each tutorial around a passage of Latin or Greek and use the text as a springboard for questions on grammatical and linguistic constructions as well as translation techniques.

keiran's last review in Ancient Greek from stephen: Keiran is very helpful and very informative
Over the past two years I have tutored students regularly in Latin, Ancient Greek, Classics, English Literature and Essay writing. I am familiar with the OCR syllabuses for Latin, Greek and Classics both at GCSE and A-level, and have developed my own resources designed to tackle set texts, unseen passages, translation from English into Latin/Greek and to reach the required level of grammatical understanding. I have also tutored a pupil for Latin IB, including the research dossier. During university, I took up Latin and Ancient Greek from scratch, so I can vividly understand the frustrations and difficulties which arise when learning Ancient languages. This has made me explore alternative methods of learning vocabulary and improving grammar through texts, rather than tables.
I have tutored pupils who need to gain top grades to take up their Oxbridge offers, and pupils struggling at school in need of extra support. As such, I develop my resources and teaching methods depending on the individual needs, aims and interests of the students. I am able to provide exam-style passages, vocabulary tests and writing tasks if desired.
During my final year of University, I volunteered in a local primary school on a programme called 'Literacy through Latin', teaching latin to a group of year six pupils, particularly those eligible for pupil premium. The project aims to use Latin to improve literacy, and so I developed latin games, exercises and creative projects. For this project I received training from the Kings College London education department.
In addition to these regular students, I have tutored pupils for competition essays, including those for the St John's College Oxford prize and the Mary Renault Prize, encouraging high-achieving pupils to think creatively and write fluently. I also have experience tutoring a mature graduate Psychology student in essay writing skills, helping them to improve their writing style ahead of a final dissertation.
I have experience tutoring several students online in Latin, and in person in Latin and Greek. I also worked full-time for three months teaching English as a second language to children from the ages of 3 to 17.

I have been tutoring for two years. I genuinely love my subject, so if you'd like help with Latin or Greek or both then I have the enthusiasm to help drive you to achieve your goals. If you are looking for help with UCAS, or the Oxbridge application process, then look no further!
Dominic's last completed Ancient Greek job with Alexander: 1-2 hrs/week - To help my son with his studies in Classics for A Level. Help tutor him through the key texts , with key knowledge for essays on the Greek tragedies, Alexander the Great etc. Syllabus is OCR. Set texts include: Horoditus, The Iliad, Agamemnon, Medea etc.
I have over 4 years of experience as a tutor. I tutored throughout my time as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford both online and in person. Every pupil has different requirements, and I always tailor my lessons and approach accordingly in order to help them develop academically, and hopefully enjoy this process.
During my time as a tutor I have taught a range of subjects to pupils at different levels, including English, History, Maths, German, Latin and Greek. I have had great success helping pupils prepare for their A Levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance and 11+ exams. In terms of helping prepare pupils for admissions exams, I have a broad knowledge of different schools across London and outside of it, and what each one requires of its students.
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in History and German. I specialised in Modern European History, with a particular focus on Germany. I will begin studying for an MPhil in Modern European History in October 2019 at the University of Cambridge.
Schools I have tutored pupils for admissions include:
St Paul's Boys School (which I attended)
St Paul's Girls School

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
I have been a private tutor for over 3-years, teaching Classical subjects up to A-Level (OCR, Pre-U). I also have a year's classroom experience teaching Latin & Ancient Greek, including Oxbridge entrance, up to A-Level at Dulwich College, which has really benefited my ability to communicate ideas clearly, and of course has given me a much more nuanced understanding of syllabus requirements.
I believe that the best one-to-one tutors create a positive and approachable working environment, and experience tells me this is the best way to achieve high results. I aim to build a friendly atmosphere that allows students to push themselves towards their potential. I know that a key part of developing a student’s self-belief is pin-pointing the best method of learning for the individual, and as such I am always looking for different ways to teach a subject that might help build confidence and understanding. I have been trained in 7+ and 11+ exam tuition.

I have mentored and tutored on other websites and in undergraduate classes.
I have helped students submit prose composition pieces for school awards via webcam. I marked the student's submitted piece and we went over this together. I feel that reflecting over one's own work is the best way to improve. It required clear and thoughtful analysis to explain linguistic features to my student. I also like to make learning the language tie in with a familiarization with the cultural and literary context of the ancient world. This allows students to develop an insight into the society of the Greeks and Romans.
I have also taught linguistic features, such as the Greek aorist tense, to fellow students in student-led classroom sessions. This helped me to understand the subject matter on a deeper level, so that I have come to value teaching. I would ask my students to explain to me their understanding of certain things so that the lesson would be more of a conversations and discourse than a strict lecture.
In my years at Cambridge I have come to understand what it is that my DoS (Director of Studies) and supervisors expect of students. I shall aim to direct the lessons with a view to how supervisions are conducted. The interview process wants to see whether students are apt for such a teaching format. As well as interview help I can also give insight on how to make a strong applicati...
Aiden's last completed Ancient Greek job with Ke: 1-2 hrs/week - I would like to achieve an A in the GCSE/IGCSE exam.
Hello, my name is George and I hold a PhD in Classics from Durham, where I am currently a Lecturer in Greek Literature. I have many years of experience as a tutor of Classics & Ancient History, Modern Greek and Philosophy. I have worked at the National University of Athens, the University of Durham and have taught at the University of Swansea. Throughout my career I have provided private tuition to high-school and university students as well as adult learners.
I specialise mostly in the teaching of Greek (Ancient and Modern) and Greek Poetry and Prose, which is also the area of my research. When teaching Classics I try to incorporate my research into my lessons thus providing the students not only with the necessary learning materials but also with the tools needed in order to question and evaluate those materials and reach their own understanding and insights regarding the texts/subjects studied. My teaching methods have proved very successful so far as can be confirmed from the many positive evaluations and feedback I have received throughout my teaching career.
If we work together you can be sure that we will achieve your learning aims, whatever they may be.

Ancient Greek job with Elizabeth:
Occasional - Hello
I want to start learning Ancient Greek with a view to taking a GCSE in it if I get on well. I am planning to take an OU degree in Classics and start a module in Greek with them next year. I am 34 and learning for my own interest but cannot commit to a part time degree yet. I have two small children so need to do Skype lessons in the evening in the week or on Monday or Friday mornings when I have childcare. I live outside Edinburgh so assume Skype would be the best option. I hope that a lesson every other week would be feasible but could do weekly to begin with. Would like some advice on an Ancient Greek course to use. I did French and German to A level and have completed Book 1 of CSCP Latin via distance learning. I also did Latin to GCSE some years ago so I have some experience of language learning. Thanks!
