    Hi! My name is Harrie Lyons and I am 21 years old. I believe actions speak louder than words, so I have offered money back to any student not satisfied with their first lesson. So far I haven't had to give back anything!

    credo me posse non solum docere corroborareque latinitatem liberorum uestrorum, sed etiam dare eis (et uobis?) aliquantum amoris huius pulcherrimae opportunissimaeque linguae (uel philosophiae, theologiae, mathematicae uel linguae anglicae...)

    I have an organic approach to teaching, depending on the subject and the student. While it is important to guide a student and help them to perform to the best of their ability it is just as essential to pay close attention to the student's needs.

  • 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. Lucilius, as a keen writer, would no doubt want to compose his own poem about Etna (Aetnam describas in tuo carmine, 79.5.5), and the volume of poetic...
  • Learning Latin to examine English Editor's Pick

    A-level Latin Tutor (South East London) Picture One of the common experiences I have when tutoring is the exhalation of sudden realisation that comes from a student when they notice that English and Latin are not so dissimilar in linguistic structure after all. There's a pervading tendency in the modern teaching of classics to sideline...

  • "Why Should I Learn Latin in the 21st Century?" Editor's Pick

    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...
