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'm a primary maths specialist and have worked with children from ages 4-11 in booster and extension groups. I am experienced at teaching children with gaps in their understanding and a variety of SEN. I use a concrete, pictorial and then abstract approach to building mathematical understanding with a focus on reasoning and problem solving. I am particularly experienced at teaching the KS2 primary maths curriculum but also have experience teaching the KS1 curriculum and early years number and shape, space and measure. As a teacher, I know exactly how to enable my students to pass tests particularly their KS2 SATs, maths GCSEs and 11+ examinations. I was a year 6 teacher for two years and in both years all of my maths set reached the expected level with 30% of children in my sets achieving greater depth. I have also developed an in depth understanding of the reading, writing and SPAG assessments for KS1 and 2 and have prepared whole classes and small groups for these assessments. If you haven't found your academic passion yet, I will help you find it.
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
Tristan's last completed Latin job with Imogen: 1-2 Hours / Week - My son is in year 10 studying OCR Latin. He is taking his GCSE in May 2020. He is academically able but has not engaged with the Latin course. He would be expected to get 7-9 grades but is some way off with his Latin. We are looking for help in really drilling down on the grammar, translation and set texts. Many thanks
Having taught English full-time at senior school, I have a good knowledge of mainstream schooling and curricula, as well as experience in the classroom. I have taught IGCSE, A-Level and to all ages from 9-18, as well as Beginners’ Latin.
I tutored undergraduates in academic writing, structuring arguments and analysis at Edinburgh University.
I am currently an MPhil graduate and PhD candidate at Cambridge, researching the poetry of David Jones.

Cecilia's last completed
Latin job with Patricia:
1-2 hrs/week - I have two children ages 9 and 10 years and I am very keen for them to have an introduction to Latin as it is not on the curriculum at either Prep School!
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...

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.
Archie's last completed Latin job with Ryan: 1-2 hrs/week - I'm taking an intensive online Latin course this summer. I'm looking for some extra help beyond the class.
I have been tutoring for quite some time people of all ages - but mostly university students. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching Italian as an L2 to foreigners; during the course of my studies I had the opportunity to put into practice what I learned so far, through hours of shadowing and internship at Italian language and culture courses for foreigners offered at my university. I also furthered my training at La Dante in Cambridge (UK) where I taught small classes and one to one sessions - this gave me the opportunity to teach any kind of level.
Vittoria's last completed Latin job with Claire: 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking for a Latin tutor for my 13 year old son who is taking the ISEB 13+ in June. You must be familiar with the ISEB curriculum. He has been learning for 2 years but revision support will need to assess how much of the basics he has grasped.
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

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.
