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.
I am very flexible and will try to find a suitable teaching method for each person. I believe in positive feedback and I prefer to give lessons beyond absolute beginner's level. Advanced Dutch learners are also very welcome.
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.
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 believe that pupils truly excel when they are empowered to take control of their own learning. - Which subject(s) do you teach? Latin and Ancient Greek. My specialist interest is language work, although I also teach some literature. - Tell me about your qualifications.
Working systematically on grammar, vocabulary and structure, Ancient Greek becomes quickly the tool of approaching original classical text and getting into their deeper meaning. The history of the language and the explanation of the several phenomena that have occurred during the centuries hold a central position in my teaching.
My qualifications best suit me to all types of Latin Language teaching up to A-Level and Greek Language up to GCSE. I have GCSE and A-Level Latin and so having been through it myself I get what the priorities should be for a student studying for these exams and am pretty enthusiastic about sharing tips that I wish I'd been given in the process.
I'm passionate about teaching and languages. I have learnt many myself at school (Italian, Spanish, German, Latin and English), so I know what it's like to be the learner. I'm patient, friendly and approachable & think that no question is stupid. - Which subject(s) do you teach? 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.
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 believe that learning happens best in an informal, encouraging and supportive environment. I am enthusiastic about my subject and aim to make learning fun and enjoyable. Together, we will identify areas of particular need and lessons will be tailored accordingly.
I base my teaching on how I was taught in the use of initial simple vocabulary while making the grammar understanding as perfect as can be and then making the constructions and vocabulary more complex as is needed.
My teaching method is based on individually tailored lessons and it takes me a lot of time to plan each of them. I have patience and passion for my work and I constantly try to improve my method so my job is an ongoing challenge.
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.
In my lessons I try to teach a quite complex language in relation to the Roman world, rather than as detached theory. I also try to have students work out the rules and syntax themselves, rather than standing and explaining it to them, as this allows them to nurture a deeper understanding of how language works.
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.
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.
As a private tutor, I am able to focus on the individual requirements of my pupils, so you will find me flexible and patient, explaining things as necessary, but also challenging your understanding in a friendly way with appropiately focussed questions and exercises. I can also provide homework and practice exercises, should you wish.
Not to be overlooked, I have gained more than two years of experience as a Latin teacher, teaching Latin classes and ancient culture at different faculties, at the Faculty of Polish, Croatian and Slavonic Philology and especially at the Faculty of Theology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland.
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.
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 would start a lesson by working through an unseen translation or prose composition (as required), and then address any grammar or vocabulary issues that arise from that. I’m also able to help with translating and answering style questions on various GCSE/AS level/equivalent set texts, and to aid understanding of the literary/historical contexts of these works if need be.
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.
My teaching method differs depending on the subject and the student! Whether you are in need of help with grammar to bolster your grades; need star material to boost you from a B to an A*; or need something extra to challenge you, I can cater to your learning needs and help youreach your full potential.
