I love my subjects, and enjoy finding different, engaging ways through which to help my students grapple with them. This is why I started working for Spires and other tutoring companies just over 3 years ago now, helping school pupils and adults alike with everything from A Level English to Greek language learning. I currently work as a research assistant in Oxford University's Phonetics Laboratory, but before this I worked for seven months in a girls' boarding school in Oxford providing Sixth Form students with academic and pastoral support, coaching many through their Oxbridge applications. I have also volunteered over the years in primary and secondary schools, helping students who are on the autism spectrum with their work and communication skills. This has given me experience with pupils of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
I have taught both Art History and Fine Art for 7 years and I can guide students to develop their art portfolios for university entry, for GCSE and A Level exams as well degree level. I can also help with art history essays, academic and creative writing, personal statements, interview skills, university entrance, presentation/public speaking skills and dissertation writing.

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.
Over the past 15 years, I have been helping students with their studies in Economics, Finance, Statistics, and other Business-related subjects, primarily at the university level. Moreover, I have had extensive experience in thesis writing and assignment supervision, research guidance as well as academic writing. During this time, my zeal, in-depth knowledge and overall tutoring skills have enabled me to develop a good reputation, thus having a consistent and loyal base of students on a weekly basis.

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.
In addition to private French tutoring, I have tutored GCSE and A-level students French at Oxford Science Studies, teaching IB, Edexcel, AQA, and Cambridge IGCSE. I have also taught English language and literature up to sixth-form level in France. I can also help with Oxbridge applications, interviews, and with English proficiency.
