Jessica - Brixton - School English

Methodology

I have an organic approach to teaching, depending on the subject and the student. While it is important to guide a student and help them to perform to the best of their ability it is just as essential to pay close attention to the student's needs.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

*Classics- Latin, Classical Civilisation, Ancient History and Ancient Greek.
*Primary- Key Stage 1 and 2 English and Maths.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a 2:1 degree from the University of Warwick in Classical Civilisation and a Masters from UCL in the Receptions of the Classical World, which is also a discipline related to the Classics. During my masters I pursued Latin and Ancient Greek, honing them to post-graduate standard. In July 2017 I gained a PGCE and am currently teaching a year 3 class.

- How much do you charge?

£30 per hour for all subjects + travel costs.
£20 per hour for offline proof-reading.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach anywhere within five miles of SE24.

- When are you available?

I am available face to face on Sundays, Monday evenings and Thursday evenings as well as additional availability in school holidays.
I have availability for online tutoring on Tuesday evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I can teach up to GCSE level ancient Greek and from common entrance to undergraduate level in Latin, Classical Civilisation and Ancient History.
5-11 year olds who need homework help, assistance to supplement their in school learning or children with special educational needs.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Common entrance, GCSE, A level, undergraduate exams.
Key stage 1 and 2 SATs.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I have Skype and webcam facilities, I often use the screen-share feature of Skype so students can follow along.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

*Four years experience tutoring Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation from Common Entrance to Undergraduate level.
*Teaching Latin in a preparatory school to Years 5 and 6.
*Teaching English as a foreign language to European students.
*Class teacher at a good primary school- Helping children with SEN, tutoring children for ks1 and ks2 SATs, whole class teaching, small group teaching, running non-verbal and verbal reasoning interventions.

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

Yes, available on request.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am currently working as a teacher in a good primary school.
As a private tutor I am currently working with a Latin GCSE student, a Classical Civilisation A level student, 2 students studying ks2 maths and english and 2 students studying lower ks3 maths and english.

Jess is extremely reliable and very flexible. She not only helped our son a lot with his classical Civilisation GCSE but also helped him to hone his essay writing skills and as a result he now writes in all his subjects with a far more sophisticated style.

Jess is always well prepared, clearly taking her time to identify exactly what her students need and which resources will help them to achieve their goals.
