Personal Message
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.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
*Classics- Latin, Classical Civilisation, Ancient History and Ancient Greek.
*Primary- Key Stage 1 and 2 English and Maths.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a 2:1 degree from the University of Warwick in Classical Civilisation and a Masters from UCL in the Receptions of the Classical World, which is also a discipline related to the Classics. During my masters I pursued Latin and Ancient Greek, honing them to post-graduate standard. I am currently undertaking a PGCE in primary education which I will complete in July 2017.
What kind of experience do you have?
*Three years experience tutoring Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation from Common Entrance to Undergraduate level.
*Teaching Latin in a preparatory school to Years 5 and 6.
*Teaching English as a foreign language to European students.
*Teaching assistant in a primary school/trainee teacher- Helping children with SEN, tutoring children for ks1 and ks2 SATs, whole class teaching, small group teaching, running non-verbal and verbal reasoning interventions.
How much do you charge?
£30 per hour for all subjects + travel costs.
£20 per hour for offline proof-reading.
Where do you teach?
I can teach anywhere within six miles of SW4, I have my own car so public transport isn't an issue if you have parking facilities.
When are you available?
As I am currently undertaking my PGCE I have limited availability for face to face tuition and cannot currently offer this on a weekly basis, however, I am available for weekly online tuition which many of my students, both past and present, have found productive and convenient.
I have availability on Monday and Wednesday evenings after 6pm, and some availability on Sundays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I can teach up to GCSE level ancient Greek and from common entrance to undergraduate level in Latin, Classical Civilisation and Ancient History.
5-11 year olds who need homework help, assistance to supplement their in school learning or children with special educational needs.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Key stage 1 and 2 SATs.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, available on request.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have Skype and webcam facilities, I often use the screen-share feature of Skype so students can follow along.
Tell me about some of your current students.
I am currently working as a trainee teacher in a good primary school.
