Classics student offering tuition for Classics and English Literature up to A-Level/Advanced Highers

Methodology

My teaching method is based on careful reading of texts in order to pick out key points. I encourage group reading/reading out loud as a way of absorbing information better. As for analysing texts, I believe engaging in tasks such as building mind maps and character studies is integral to doing this. Finally I believe that practising as many example questions as possible is the key to exam success.

Background

I am a Classics student at the University of Glasgow, currently in my third year. I am offering tuition for both Classics and English Literature up to A-Level/Advanced Highers. I also have experience tutoring maths and english for children ages 4-14.
