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 have studied both part and full time - so I know what it is like to want to get the best out of your time. I came to studying after working for a while - so I know what is it like to not feel confident about academic activities. I have a great love of history and the Classics which goes back to primary school.
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 methods are highly flexible, and I aim to adapt my tuition to suit the student and their aims.
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.
My teaching methodology would revolve around you; I am open to whatever would help you best. I can offer feedback and advice on an essay you are working on, help you plan essays, give you mock-exam questions or we could just brainstorm and discuss a book you are studying.
My lessons are targeted at specific issues which pupils are struggling with, which I can prepare for beforehand and arrive with a goal for that lesson in mind, as opposed to a more general, wide-sweeping style of teaching.
The method I use for teaching will vary depending on the subject and closeness to the exam. I teach Latin up to A level and will teach grammatical constructs and translation then provide examples to practice on. In addition I teach students how to easily spot notable points and analyse set texts in essay form.
I have been teaching a large class of GCSE Greek for the past year. Focusing mainly on introducing and improving grammar, I also seek to include vocabulary within teaching. Willing to cater for student's needs, can introduce new material, or assist in revision.
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’m friendly and supportive and believe in letting each student find their best way of learning. I will provide homework based on the content and problems encountered in each lesson and give feedback at the next class before moving on to the next topic.
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 like to have a friendly and playful approach to teach French especially with the youngest, and to progress gradually in fonction of my student to respond to their own goals and capacities. I mostly teach beginners of all ages.
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.
I can give lessons to people of any age group from basic literacy to GCSE standard. I have experience of one-one tuition. When teaching larger groups, I use a variety of methods, including setting individual tasks so that students can learn at their own pace, pair and group activities, and role play.
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.
Methodology conforms to each student, as my belief is that everyone has his/her own way of approaching the process of studying
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.
