I offer two approaches: tailored tuition for students with particular goals (GCSE's, A-Levels, and University studies) and a course on Latin and Ancient Greek. I combine the teaching of grammar in context with interactive activties and resources for vocabulary learning.
My previous experience is in giving lessons to degree standard beginners Latin and English language tuition to candidates for B1/B2 standard. I like to keep classes fairly casual and conversational relying on the involvement of the pupil, while always keeping in sight their end goals. We only get there if we go together.
I can give English (preferably literature), Modern Greek language and Ancient Greek literature lessons to primary, middle school and early high school students. Lesson structure: The lesson structure will vary depending on the needs and aims of each student.
I determine your experience and abilities and your goals in learning the classical languages and culture. I am especially interested in having students learn the materials in the manner that suits them best, and I provide support and guidance in this endeavour.
I have completed my A levels and I would like to help 11+ students, GCSE and A level students (for English, Biology and Classical Civilisation). I am friendly and like visual tools learner and incorporate this within my lessons. I use practice papers and the new syllabus structure to plan my lessons.
I love finding unique ways to help the individual, no two people learn in the exact same way so for me it is about finding what works for that particular person.
In terms of languages, grammar is the most important component for me.
My teaching method is as simple/complex, as informal/formal as the needs of my students. However, my teaching is more academic and theoretical in approach, 40 minutes long per session and this is split into two 15 minute slots with a ten minute break after the first 15 minutes. My teaching is completely done online.
I have successfully taught Greek and Latin language, literature and civilization at University College London, King’s College London (KCL), and at a secondary school. At KCL (2017-18), I am teaching ancient Greek to undergraduates using Reading Greek.
I'm an Oxford undergraduate studying Classics who would like to ignite some excitement about a subject which I promise is more than a dead language. Happy to give Skype lessons or in person in Oxford or when I'm at home (Surrey). I would give engaging lessons that would both lay a solid foundation of language but would be able to expand understanding of Classical literature, history and philosophy.
Teaching Greek and Latin and Classics to GCSE and A-Level and above. Also publishing outreach. Published courses in Greek and Latin, Biography of Epicurus, Scholarly papers on sound of Greek and Latin. Republishing out-of-print grammars and readers. Muche else written.
In both Greek and Latin I am able to tutor up to GCSE level and believe that the best way to tackle the ancient languages it through the 'little and often' method, particularly with vocabulary. At university I have written a number of first class essays, thus am able to aid essay structure and the analytical process of examining ancient evidence.
As a student myself, I understand the difficulties faced by students in the academic field. While I was at school, I often found the the subjects I struggled with the most were also the subjects which I enjoyed the least. In my teaching therefore, I think it is important to keep the student interested and to find interactive and energetic ways of teaching.
I believe that the best way to improve your Latin and Greek quickly is through thorough knowledge of the grammar and syntax of the languages. I would look to promote this with testing as well as helping a student to spot the patterns which make wrote learning easier.
For a few years now I have been tutoring students in different subjects and with different needs (10 to 17 y.o.), which has taught me that there isn’t one method that works for everyone. It is really important for me to follow a student over time and understand what works best for them.
My methodology revolves around prioritising the rules of syntax over everything else. I know from experience that this can be quite boring, so I try to make it as enjoyable as possible. I understand that learning a language takes time, so it will be a long time before a student has a good vocabulary and is comfortable with the grammar.
Firstly, I will ask the pupil which aspects of the Latin/Greek language they find difficult, or struggle in. Having chosen a topic to revise at the beginning of every lesson, we will go through some exercises from the John Taylor books (Latin/Greek to GCSE/beyond GCSE depending on the level of the pupil, followed by a translation.
My teaching method is calm and methodical, one that aims to give the pupil as much confidence in their abilities as I can. Testing that aims to continually recall information learned is particularly important in Classics and Maths and is a central part of my methodology.
I have experience of studying Latin at GCSE, IB and undergraduate levels. I have a good understanding of Greek and Latin grammar and am also able to assist in English studies having studied it at as one of my highers in my IB.
I base my classes around text appreciation and understanding, using ancient and modern texts as the basis for learning about literature and language. I also insist upon frequent testing in order to check the abilities of the student in question, in grammar, vocabulary and literary device use.
‘Honour the work, and the work will honour you.’ Our word education comes from the Latin educo, meaning ‘to draw out’. The teacher’s task is to draw out the latent powers of the student so that he can realize himself and shine his own light on whatever he studies.
