- † In April 2011, I founded a private tuition agency, Titanium Tutors, which I now run full-time. Please see www.titaniumtutors.co.uk

† From September 2011 to July 2013 I was Head of Latin at a school in Bury St Edmunds (part time).
† I have had extensive tutoring experience in Latin and Ancient Greek (and some other subjects) over the past six years.

- Where and with whom did you train?
- I did my PGCE at Queens' College, Cambridge, graduating in 2010.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
- I believe in three key principles:
1. ANYBODY CAN EXCEL IN LATIN AND GREEK
With a little guidance and a decent amount of independent work, it is genuinely possible for anybody to master the ancient languages.
2. GRAMMAR IS KEY
I believe that an understanding of Latin grammar is empowering. It eliminates guess-work and maximizes success. If correctly taught, it can also be a lot of fun.
3. TUTORS ARE FACILITATORS
Private tuition can be extremely helpful, but it is not a replacement for independent study. Fast progress and true success are only possible if the student works outside of the sessions.
There are six main aspects to my teaching:
1. Energy & Pace: I am highly energized and like to work speedily and efficiently.
2. Slow down to speed up: I believe that thorough and detailed explanations in the short term are an essential investment in time, and enable a faster pace in the future.
3. Structure: My subject splits itself very naturally into manageable units and topics. I like the student to be aware of these chunks and how they fit into the broader picture.
4. Reinforcement: I begin every lesson recapping the work covered during the previous session. This takes as little as five minutes, but repetition is the key to successful learning.
5. Homework: Independent study is the only way to get the most from private tuition: the two must work in tandem. I set work to be completed between every session.
6. Resources: In most cases I like to use a combination of the Cambridge Latin Course and my own worksheets. I often tailor-make resources to the individual student if the need arises.
Above all, I strive to make my lessons fun and enjoyable. I love my subject and want all of my tutees to love it too.
