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.
I approach teaching/tutoring grammar first, as the base of the language, and build on this with the students. I prefer to work through exercises with students, increasing their capabilities so they are able to tackle more complex passages of Latin or Greek. I also seek to give the students context surrounding the subject. (eg. author, time of the passage).
I hold a BA in Greek Philology and a MA in Classics. I have been tutoring for the past six years students of all key stages. I am dedicated and passionate about teaching and the success of my senior year students in the National Exams (equivalent to GCSE) certifies my skills and my professionalism.

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.
My teaching methods will be very easy and consist of tools that you need in the world as well as the exams. I will make the teaching fun and simple. Therefore, the things you never thought were simple, now seem simple.
I base my lessons on what my students feel they need to work on, as well as the syllabus topics they need to know. I aim to go through the specification in order to teach exam techniques. I am most familiar with the AQA exam board.
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.
Hi! I am an 18 year old sixth form student offering classes in Latin Language and Literature for GCSE or earlier.

Hi there! I'm in my first year of univeristy studying English and my passion for the language and literature has led me here.

Hi, I'm Shay and I am an A* A-Level student who offers GCSE and A-Level lessons in English Literature. Before our first session, I would require knowledge of your exam board and the texts you will be studying so I can create my resources accordingly.
After I get to know my students, I try to make the lessons as enjoyable as possible, integrating subjects of their interest, songs, movies and books. In case you need language for a specific field (like for work) I will make sure to include relevant terminology in the class.
My teaching method involves clear criteria and goals for the lesson which can be monitored through discussion and questions. I can draw the student's attention to different critical and contextual details in order to broaden their analytical approach to literature.
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 have a very relaxed yet focused teaching method, the key to successfully teaching a child is to make the lesson As engaging for them as possible, I base my lessons around my pupils style of learning and cater to their needs in order for us both to get the most out of every lesson.

My students range from primary, secondary (GCSE, A-Level/International Baccalaureate) through to degree level. My lessons can cover grammar, vocabulary, translation technique, essay-writing, literary analysis. I work together with my student to set common learning goals regularly, whether that's to improve their grades, or to work on specific skills such as essay-writing.
I can teach French from Primary school to A-level, focusing on grammar, redaction, literature or oral comprehension. I base my classes on a solid knowledge of the student; of his qualities and his difficulties. My classes are adapted to their personality and the issues they face.
GSCE and A Level English - specifically essays and creative writing - is what I tend to specialise in. I like to get to know the student first, and how they approach studying in their most comfortable sense. I don't want to change their own techniques too much! Instead of making assumptions, I'd work to incorporate improvements in any areas they might want help with.
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.
My tutoring approach is to provide students with a forum in which they can ask the questions and discuss the issues they are not able to confront at school – whether due to a lack of confidence or lack of time to address these problems.
Set out to write a best-selling book James Patterson, the author of 19 consecutive No. 1 New York Times bestsellers, reveals his tricks of the trade for the very first time.
I have 4 years experience tutoring students aged 7-15 predominantly in Latin, Mathematics and English. This has involved school entrance tests at age 11+ and 13+, as well as working towards GCSE qualifications. Having studied at Oxford, I believe in academic excellence and that hard work can achieve anything.
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.

I like to adapt my teaching method to suit the individual but place an emphasis on academic encouragement and support.
I have worked as a tutor and teacher in several countries. My students get strong results as I tailor bespoke lessons to each individual. I believe in a hands-on approach to develop student understanding of the subject matter and believe that learning should be enjoyable - and can be for everyone - once we have found the right strategies and techniques that work for us.
