My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was working on my PhD, and never stopped! I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate dissertation.
I try and see things from the student’s point of view when explaining things. I think it is important to have a variety of activities in a tutorial, and for the tutor to be a good listener as well as good at communicating, prompting and explaining. I try to make tuition sessions an enjoyable as well as helpful experience. I like to encourage students to achieve the highest standards they can.
My aim is to help you to improve your skills and confidence so that you get the best grade you can. I offer advice, tips and practice based on my teaching experience, plus plenty of friendly encouragement. I am most often asked to help with essay writing and exam technique.
Welcome! A freelance tutor and singer, I give "Personal tuition in the right key". I can help you get the highest grades in exams, and study in the "key" that best suits you. Like the right song choices, I often inspire my students to succeed.

I teach French, Beginner Spanish and Latin & modern Greek. - Tell me about your qualifications.
Hi! My name is Harrie Lyons and I am 21 years old. I believe actions speak louder than words, so I have offered money back to any student not satisfied with their first lesson. So far I haven't had to give back anything! - Which subject(s) do you teach? Any humanities or essay based subject.
My teaching methodology focusses on sculpting the approach to a student's personal learning style and strengths, and creates pride in personal progress. Lessons are structured around student-led learning and fun, interactive engagement with the topic. Working with students with learning disabilities has taught me to shape a learning environment to suit the particular needs of every single student.
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.
I believe that through private, one to one tuition a student gains in confidence, and therefore begins to achieve their full potential. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach Latin, Ancient and Modern Greek, All Classical Civilisation Subjects and German. - Tell me about your qualifications.
I have not a fixed method. It depends on your own goals, backgrounds and on what is more difficult for you. Normally, I base my classes on grammar, methodology of translation and so forth. I prefer to work on original texts, according to your level.
I like to focus on a text-based approach to Latin and Ancient Greek, building up knowledge of grammar and vocabulary while creating confidence in recognising these features and words in example passages.
I begin with what their struggles are and continue on from there. The activities are fun and helpful! I can connect with the children easily and effectively so that they feel at ease in the sessions. I will be light-hearted so that the children can achieve the help and kindness that they need with their work.
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 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 really enjoy teaching, and am happy to tutor at any level from absolute beginner upwards to A-level and beyond in Latin and classical literature (especially Roman poetry). I am also comfortable giving lessons in ancient history and ancient Greek to a GCSE level. In teaching the languages, I stress the great importance of the fundamentals as a base on which to build up your language skills.
The most important feature of my way of working as a tutor is to listen to you, so that we can decide together what is the most appropriate method of learning for you. Communicating is I believe necessary in order to learn efficiently.
I teach based on the student's individual requirements. I tend to focus on helping the student to improve their weakest areas through viewing these from different perspectives. I also aim to help students learn effective techniques for rote learning.
My teaching method is based on the national curriculum and reflects the classic foundation of the Ancient Greek grammar and syntax.
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 am a fully qualified Classics teacher providing high-quality bespoke tuition. I take pride in tailoring my approach to each student's needs and providing a positive experience. I work at all levels, including Common Entrance, GCSE and A-Level. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I specialise in the teaching of Latin, Ancient Greek and Ancient History. - Tell me about your qualifications.
Firstly and most importantly I would say that I am a very approachable teacher and I will always try and make my lessons fun. I think structure is important for a good learning environment, but there is no substitute for enjoyment - in my opinion it's the only way you ever truly get to grips with a subject. So this element of enthusiasm comes across in my teaching.
My method is based on rigorous language learning, vocabulary and appreciation of the Classics. The set-text element of the examinations is a particular favourite and my method has never failed (?) to enthrall and excite. Unseen work is also very enjoyable.
I can give lessons to any person at any level, but I strongly prefer the students from 16 y.o. and on. We will try to make an trustful relationship by adaptating all the contents to the student's requirements. I am aware about the deductive techniques on Greek & Latin teaching (Aléxandros or Familia Romana, Hans Orberg) and I work with those books, you I can guide the student through them.
I usualy explain theory first and then have students do some exercises under my supervision in order to make sure they understood. I do not mind explaining things more than once, and I make sure I go over homework together with the student.
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.
I believe in a highly individualised approach tailored to the precise needs, interests and personality of each student. I have an enormous love and enthusiasm for the subjects I teach, and my lessons are as much about sharing this with my pupils as about the building of crucial subject skills that will bring them to the next level.
Since everyone learns in a different way, I use the first free lesson to assess and discover the learning style of my students. My lessons are designed in partnership with my students or my students’ parents. I use mastery approach across the curriculum, which leads to deeper understanding and gives students the opportunity to contextualise their learning and apply it in real life.
