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 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.
Looking to tutor from Secondary upwards to undergraduate degree level in areas of History.
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 am looking to give lessons to anyone from High School to an A-level standard. I always initially base my lessos around what the student personally perceives their weakest point to be, as the students self-confidence and personal views are of the utmost importance to me.
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.
My teaching method is very tailored to the needs of the individual. I assess what the student wants/needs to work on and plan my lessons accordingly.
My teaching method is person-centred and based around what is best for each individual student. I have no problem changing my methodology to suit each student's preferred learning method, and like to use a variety of materials and methods to enhance the learning experience.
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.
I like to approach each lesson with a clear aim but an open mind as well. I like to plan a structured series of lessons based on the areas we need to cover however I believe that flexibility is key here. I am more than happy to go over additional material or re-visit a topic if the student feels that this is necessary.
I would approach each child differently depending on their age and ability - I am very flexible and would work easily around my pupil, listening to how they learn best. I would prefer to tutor in person as I think it is easier both to understand and be understood face to face.
My teaching method is to find out what a student already knows, what they want to know and to go from there. The lessons will be focused on what the student needs help with, and I will adapt my lessons and methods of providing information to what suits and helps you best.
I approach each topic by covering the basics, making sure that the foundations are there to build upon with further learning and development of the subject. Constant relaying of the information that is being taught is my number 1 priority and making sure that the pupil understands each stage of the learning.
Theory is good but no substitute for experience and my experience is truly international. By relating my personal experiences I can discuss real time issues with students.
I shape each lesson differently according to what tutees are struggling with and how they learn best, and try to make it enjoyable for tutees as well as useful! I know rote learning of endings can be dull, so I'm always developing new and exciting methods for learning vocab and grammar and developing translation skills.
Classics is a largely misunderstood subject. It's no longer a widely spoken language, but the affect that the Latin and (Ancient) Greek languages have had on European and North African culture is important in contemporary society.
My teaching method primarily depends on the student that I am teaching. I will try and work to their strengths and weaknesses and create a suitable lesson plan that will fully benefit their working and learning styles. I will work with you to achieve the goals that you set out.
The classics are based upon interpretation of opinions, discussing, talking, throwing around ideas is the best way to learn. Very informal approach.
I am happy to give lessons to all levels from complete beginners to more advanced students. I believe that the lessons should be led by you - I am here to help you in whichever areas you need help on and to answer any questions you have. I know that Ancient Greek and Latin can be very confusing and so I will guide you through each step slowly.
My first meeting with students consists of talking to them about what they are finding difficult and may need extra support on, I compile a list and set out a plan to cover the majority of the topics over the future lessons. I also discuss with them their preferred learning techniques so i can provide a bespoke service to each student.
I want the teaching to be fun for both the teacher and the person taught. This works best when the roles are somewhat less clear-cut in the first place: I try and push the other person to 'teach' me in turn, and thus develop their confidence and interest in the subject.
I believe that immersion in language, a good knowledge of any set text, and the context surrounding are the key to success in this subject. I have worked with young people in the past in educational situations, and now am looking at students between primary education all the way to A-levels who wish to improve the Classics.
I am able to offer lessons to students studying at any level from GCSE to undergraduate in Classics and Ancient History (including Classical Civilisation, Classical Studies and all the variations!) I also offer English Literature and History at GCSE Level.
My approach on the subject in general is free: for literature it is essential to start from the life of the author, as this making us understand his experience, can make us better approach his style and the understanding of his works. For English, beyond grammar I focus in particular on dialogue, which is often missing in ordinary schools.
I am a PhD from PUC - SP, currently developing a thesis on Medieval History. The classes are intended for all those who want to learn the Latin language from the beginning. The content will always be presented in an expositive and dynamic way, using specific didactic materials, such as the renowned "Reading Latin".
My teaching method for Latin language and is based mainly on the Danish method LINGVA LATINA and the English method Reading Latin, complemented with other grammars (Napoleão de Almeida Mendes, Pierre Grimal, Julio Comba, etc.). Portuguese grammar teaching method based on the grammar of Celso Cunha and Lindley Cintra entitled A Nova Gramática do Português Contemporâneo.

Perfect! Gemma is a very calm , consistent and kind tutor who cuts through all the complicated jargon to explain Latin in a very clear manner. Very personable and professional and punctual and my daughter finds the lessons fun which is a bonus! Would not...
