Classics undergraduate offering experienced tutoring in Latin and Ancient Greek in London/Durham

Methodology

My name is James, I am a Classics student at Durham University. I have taught people at undergraduate, A-level and GCSE standard as well as preparing a pupil for his Westminster scholarship entry exam.

My methods isolate what the tutee finds difficult and then we explore it thoroughly and from different angles so that it becomes memorable. I believe that everyone I tutor has different methods and strengths in their approach to ancient languages and I hugely enjoy seeing people develop their language skills under my tutelage.

Experience

I have tutored Latin and Ancient Greek for 3 years and at a variety of levels. I have helped a pupil achieve an A* at GCSE, another to achieve her goal in an undergraduate Ancient Greek module, and another pupil achieved a place at Westminster school, scoring highest in his Latin and Ancient Greek papers. I am hugely proud of what my tutees have achieved in the past and the satisfaction is why I enjoy tutoring so much.

University College, Durham, BA in Classics 2015-
• First Class grade (71) in first year.
• I balance a strong work ethic and a passion for my degree with numerous sporting commitments (squash, rowing, tennis and badminton), musical commitments (chapel choir choral scholar), volunteer work (I teach Latin at a local primary school as charity work) and my current jobs.
• Studying Classics has trained me to have an incisive and vigorous attitude towards language and provided me with meticulous skills of analysis.

• A-Levels: A* (Latin), A (English Literature) and A (Religious Studies)
• AS Levels: 5 As (English Literature, Religious Studies, Latin, German and Maths)
