Experienced teacher and Oxford graduate offering Latin, Greek, Classical Civilisation and English tuition in South West London.

About the lesson

I am able to teach Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation from beginners to first year University level. I can also teach English up to GCSE level. I am happy to tutor online or at my house, but am unable to travel due to family commitments.

I tailor my approach to the needs of the pupils I teach, but here are some examples of approaches which I have adopted.

Latin/Greek language teaching:
- intensive language teaching for those moving from the state system into a prep school, or those wishing to prepare for GCSE independently.
- evaluation of weaknesses in a pupil’s language knowledge and tailored exercises to help them to improve their understanding.
- examination focused training aiming to fine tune techniques required for public examinations.

Literature:
- I read through texts with pupils and discuss them at an appropriate level, aiming to develop comprehension, interpretation and literary appreciation skills.

About Claire

I have been teaching Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation in selective schools in London for the past 8 years. I also examine both Latin and Greek for OCR and CIE (GCSE, IGCSE and pre-U), so I have extensive experience of the exam boards’ requirements.

I have a first class degree in Classics from Oxford University, and a PGCE in Classics teaching from Kings College London. My full CV is available on request.

I have experience in tutoring Latin, Greek and English. I have assisted pupils from primary school level through to A Level in a range of subject areas. I have helped some individuals gain confidence in their English comprehension skills, assisted others in gaining places at their chosen schools with extra tuition at both Common Entrance and Scholarship level, and helped older pupils fine tune the skills they needed to succeed in public examinations.

I have a recent DBS certificate for work with children.
