Enthusiastic and experienced tutor with two degrees in Classics (MA KCL, BA Durham University)

Methodology

My first introduction to tutoring was in my upper sixth, when I volunteered at a local primary school to teach Latin to Year 6. There were 5 volunteers and so we split the class into groups and started taking them through a beginner’s textbook. I used this time to start developing my skills as tutor, learning how to keep children engaged with interactive activities and by getting them to read short funny stories. I monitored their progress by giving them mini-tests each week and rewarding their hard work.

Throughout my time at university and over the last year I have used tutoring to support myself. Up until the start of lockdown I had four regular tutees, three for Latin GCSE and one for A level Classical Civilisation. When taking on a new tutee, I use the first session to get to know them and work out the areas they are struggling with so that I know what to concentrate on over the following weeks. I would then create a lesson plan, setting achievable goals to be covered in sessions and in the students own time. I also make sure to learn the parts of the subject they enjoy and make sure to incorporate these aspects into my lesson as well. I use regular tests to monitor a student’s progress and encourage them to ask questions when they are confused. I find the three best qualities for a tutor are patience, confidence and a sense of humour. These characteristics help your student relax and feel comfortable to ask questions and make mistakes.

Since lock-down the majority of my regular clients have stopped their lessons as they no longer have exams to prepare for. I have found an adult learner who wants to learn Latin from scratch. I have been using the extra time to create my own resources, such as powerpoints explaining and demonstrating basic grammar points. My adult tutee has found these very helpful and I have shared my resources with other tutors who have been using them in their lessons. I am pleased to have had to the time to create these powerpoints and am determined to use them with other tutees as they are a clear, concise and helpful teaching tool.

I have an A* at A Level in English Literature and have always loved analysing and researching texts. About 50% of the texts studied in a Classics degree are studied in translation so I have plenty of recent experience in studying English texts. On top of this, my experience in Classics has provided me with a very detailed approach to analysing texts and an approach that will be steeped in culture and history.

Experience

In June 2018 I graduated with 2:1 in Classics from the University of Durham and then immediately started a Masters in Classics at Kings College London graduating in October 2019 with a Merit. From October 2019 to February 2020 I worked in a theatrical PR firm based in Soho. I am very passionate about the arts industry and was heavily involved in student theatre during both of my degrees. Whilst at university, I discovered I had a talent for publicising shows and this pushed me to look for a career in marketing or communications. Since February I have been looking for a job in this sector and have been tutoring numerous clients towards their GCSEs and A levels in Latin and Classical Civilisation.

I am an excellent communicator, a skill developed through my degrees and the plays and production teams I have been part of in student theatre. I love tutoring because the intimate setting allows me to form a relationship with a tutee and see how my input is having a real impact on their progress. I find it highly rewarding to tutor students in subjects I am passionate about. I am dedicated, driven and have excellent time management. I know will put my best work into helping my tutees learn and develop.
