    If you find a subject hard in school you can benefit from private tuition. My approach is to tailor lessons to your needs and interests, and to help you understand the topic and learn to love it.

  • Introduction for Witches of Thessaly Dissertation

    A-level Latin Tutor (South West London) Picture Witchcraft looms large in Apuleius’s Metamorphoses: Socrates has his heart removed, a baker is killed in his bedroom and Lucius, the narrator, is transformed into a donkey, all owing to the malignant interference of witches. Magic is a decidedly destructive force in the narrative; that is, until...
  • Sailing familiar seas: V. Flaccus' Argonautica

    Ed Martineau A-level Latin Tutor (South West London) Picture On asking about his friend’s trip to Sicily (Ep. 79), Seneca characteristically seized the opportunity to divert to more instructive matters.

    A-level Latin Tutor (East London) Picture Why Should I Learn Latin in the 21st Century? This is the most common question that my students asked in the beginning of their secondary school years when they started to learn the "useless, dead" Latin language. Probably, I am a little biased due to my enthusiasm about the subject but I...
  • Catullus!

    A-level Latin Tutor (South West London) Picture I'm currently working on a dissertation for my MA about the Roman author Catullus. He's a fascinating author -- an extremely versatile poet, churning out pithy epigrams, scathing short poems and great, long, solemn pieces. If you're looking for a text-book, can I recommend the Aris & Phillips...
