Elizabeth - Royal Tunbridge Wells - Classics

Methodology

I am an experienced classics teacher. I hugely enjoy engaging with students at all ages and levels, helping them improve and sometimes outperform their expectations.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Latin, Ancient Greek, New Testament Greek and Classical Civilisation.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have an MA in Classics from Oxford University

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour for A level Latin and Greek and £30 per hour for GCSE and £40 per hour for A level Classical Civilisation. I offer an initial free 30 minute consultation with no commitment. There is a 10% discount for prepaid bookings of 5 sessions or more.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home and online.

- When are you available?

I am available weekdays and weekends, daytime and evening.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach GCSE, IGCSE, A level and IB to school and university students and mature learners.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use Skype. Where appropriate I provide notes, power points, or worksheets prior to the session and I use shared online resources such as the Perseus Digital Library and the online Cambridge Latin Course. I give feedback on typed emailed work, and often provide notes after the session. Where appropriate I keep parents regularly informed of progress.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I aim to build confidence with lots of friendly encouragement. I teach essay writing skills, how to improve translation work, grammar tips and text analysis and I help with focused exam preparation. I am able to teach the new OCR GCSE and A level specifications
I tutor as flexibly as possible. I can offer a single session for revising a particular topic, or to advise on an essay, or ongoing support where a module needs retaking, or where help is needed with grammar and translation. I can also teach an entire course and I am happy to teach Latin or Greek to beginners. Tutoring can be weekly, or more or less frequently. I offer sessions of one to two hours, plus a free, no commitment, 30 minute initial discussion, and a discount for block bookings.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught for over 20 years in schools in Kent and following retirement I have recently begun tutoring online. I have an excellent record of students achieving A and A* at GCSE and A level.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a current DBS certificate.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Most of my current students are preparing for Latin, Greek, and Classical Civilisation A Level. They need focused language, text, topic and literary analysis revision and essay practice. I teach younger students working towards Latin GCSE and I also teach Greek and Latin to mature learners who have no previous experience.

Hi Elizabeth, Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help! I came out with an A for Classics in all the papers I took this year, and overall it's an A! I also got the highest mark for Roman Britain in my class! Thank you so much!

Hi Liz, I just wanted to let you know that I got the grades I needed for Oxford! In Latin I got an A* overall - in the Verse I got 84/100 and in the Prose I got 100/100. In Greek I got an A overall - in the Verse I got 80/100 and in the Prose 89/100.

I also wanted to thank you so much for all your help this year
