Henriette $40-50/hr

Classics (1st) - University of Oxford

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.

Anna $40-50/hr

Classics - University of Oxford

I have taught Latin, Greek, English, and French to the equivalent of GCSEs and A-levels in Italy for two years. With GuruMe, I have successfully prepared InChan (aged 13) in Latin and French for his Radley and Winchester Election exams.

My approach is to assist students in developing their own ways of learning. I try not to feed them with knowledge straightaway, but rather to help them get to the answer themselves. Having said this, I am always happy to provide students with in-depth knowledge and assist them in their learning path.

Anna's last completed Secondary Latin job with Kasia: Intensive - Need an excellent teacher!

Dominic $40-50/hr

Classics - University of Oxford

I have been tutoring for three years, and have consistently received 5 star reviews on the Spires platform. I genuinely love my subject, so if you'd like help with Latin, Greek, English, History, Class Civ, then I have the enthusiasm to help drive you to achieve your goals.

If you are seeking help editing or proofreading an essay/dissertation, then look no further. I've had professional experience proofreading articles destined for publication in a financial magazine, as well as having a 3000 word feature published, so I can be a useful extra set of eyes!

Dominic's last completed Secondary Latin job with Justine : Occasional - I would like my daughter to start Latin classes when she starts secondary school in September and at some point to do a GSCE as her school doesn’t offer it.

keiran $40-50/hr

Classics - University of Cambridge

I have tutored Latin and Ancient Greek for 5 years now and find it incredibly satisfying, I have also taught Latin at a local high school. 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.

I qualified from the University of Sussex in 2018 with a Distinction in Classics teacher training. During that year I taught at a secondary school and a sixth form college, teaching GSCE Latin and Classics, A level Classics, and running group revision/ review sessions for the students.

I have taught abroad in Namibia (2013 - 2014), and in China (Summer of 2016). During my time in China I was teaching at an English summer camp and I received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

Harry $40-50/hr

Classics - University of Oxford

I have lots of experience tutoring from 11+ to A-level pupils and have always been able to work out the method that works best for each individual pupil. This comes from my extensive experience working with children, including volunteering at a local school, running a sports club for local children and volunteering on a holiday for underprivileged and disabled children. I'm also working part-time as a community football coach, which enables me to understand how pupils think and to which method of learning they are best suited.
