« Jon is a fantastic tutor and has helped me to do so much better in my 2 classics examinations this year. Before studying with Jon I was achieving D's in both Latin and Greek and now am very likely to be pushing for A/A* in both. He knows his subject area fantastically and has really inspired me to do better. He's encouraging, intelligent and personable and makes learning simple. »

Latin and Ancient Greek Tutor for GCSE and AS level students with a strong focus on language. In the Colchester area and have recently completed my A levels

Methodology

I am a year 13 student who has just finished college with a view to studying Classics at Durham next year. I tend to focus on the language side of Classics as this is something which teachers can go over very quickly. Primarily I go through past paper resources and teach my students how to approach different questions and in general improve their translation skills. I also design and write exercises to target specific weaknesses which I can spot or have been told about. I am very focused and aim to make the most out of each lesson as I find it is a rewarding experience to see someone improve under your teaching.

Experience

I have tutored GCSE students in a group of around 4 just during lunch time periods to get them back on track with their workload in class. I also tutor a GCSE student 1 to 1 who is about to finish with their final Classics exam. When I first started tutoring with my 1 to 1 student, he was working at a D grade in Greek and a C grade in Latin. He is currently set to get an A* in Latin and a high A to low A* in Greek thanks to several lessons during the school year.

Jonny has been studying Latin and Greek for over 6 years, this has left him with proficient skills in both. Not only has he helped tutor me in the past but he also has taught several others that I know. As a result he has developed great teaching skills and fantastic interpersonal abilities. I would trust him to improve anyone's aptitude in the subjects that he offers.
