I am an experienced classics teacher. I hugely enjoy engaging with students at all ages and levels, helping them to improve, and sometimes even 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 a BA and an MA in Classics class 2.1 from Oxford University
- How much do you charge?
I charge £40 per hour for A level Classical Civilisation, £35 per hour for A level Latin / Greek and £30 per hour for GCSE Latin / Greek. I offer an initial free 30 minute consultation / tutorial with no commitment. There is a 10% discount for prepaid bookings of 5 sessions or more.
- Where do you teach?
I teach 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 a range of online platforms including Skype and Facetime. 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. I set and mark homework, and often provide notes after the session. Where appropriate I keep parents regularly informed of progress. I do not usually make a charge for marking or resources.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I aim to build confidence with plenty of friendly encouragement. I can help with essay writing skills, improving translation work, grammar tips and detailed text analysis. I offer focused exam preparation.
I teach all the new OCR Classics 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 give 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 conslutation/tutorial, plus a 10% discount for block bookings.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught for over 20 years in schools in Kent and following retirement I tutor online. I have an excellent record over many years, of students achieving the highest grades at GCSE and A level.
I am a specialist assessor for the OCR exam board for Ancient Greek A level.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a current enhanced DBS certificate.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
Most of my current students are preparing for Latin, Ancient 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 and Ancient Greek GCSE and I also teach Latin and Ancient Greek to mature learners who have no previous experience.
A level Classical Civilisation £40 per hour
A level Latin / Greek £35 per hour
GCSE Latin / Greek £30 per hour
Liz tutored our daughter (via Skype) in the run up to her AS Classical Civilisation exam. She came out of the sessions a lot more confident, and a lot calmer, than she had been going in - we couldn't really ask for more than that. She was flexible on timings, and quick to respond to things. Very professional, and recommended..
Elizabeth has been a fantastic help in teaching my son Greek for his university course, and I would highly recommend her as a tutor. Her teaching has been excellent, she is a very thorough and patient teacher, my son has really enjoyed her lessons and Elizabeth has been very helpful in fitting in lessons as soon as needed.
Liz was quick to respond to our request for help on Class Civ A level. My daughter says Liz is able to tackle whatever Class Civ subject area she asks for help in, and Liz clearly has a deep knowledge of the subject. Liz also adapts her teaching style to benefit the student the most. Liz is very friendly and has helped my daughter enjoy the subject. Thanks Liz,
