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.
I focus on syllabus and exam technique. My usual method is to set an agreed question from your current syllabus, write it up and send it me for review, assessment, annotation and additional ideas. We meet up, online preferably, and go over the answer together working through point by point. You'll get a copy of my annotations, notes and ideas to take away.
Being a younger tutor I am able to relate to students and this stronger relationship will correlate with stronger results and outcomes. I work from the students appropriate specification using traditional methods of teaching to embed information into the long term memory. Coming for the award winning and best free school in Bradford; Dixons Trinity I have Picked up on expert methods.
I have just completed an Award in Adult Education and Training and found that this has complemented my earlier management and leadership experience and professional qualifications (Award from the Institute of Leadership and Management), very well.
My teaching method is to understand what the student is comfortable with but pushing them to be creative when arguing their side. Rhetoric is an important skill to develop early on. I believe in building up the student in confidence and skill.
My teaching method is positive reinforcement on self-learning, I assist via prompting questions and encouraging independent learning by giving the tools and then catering the approach to the student, some students will very independently jump to an answer when given the materials, others need to be shown and others know answers but struggle with their methodology.
The key to succeeding in English is connecting to the work and understanding the elements of language. I therefore focus on strengthening analysis techniques while exposing students to a range of texts, encouraging them to find what speaks to them.
I have been teaching Latin and Classical Civilization to students at preparatory and secondary schools since 2012. During this time, I have also tutored students for Common Entrance Levels 1, 2 and 3, as well as scholarship examinations for Eton, Harrow, Tonbridge, Wellington, Winchester College, Westminster, Bradfield and Sherborne.
Each lesson will be taught differently according to the student i am working with. I believe learning should be fun and interactive to help the student to feel relaxed and so has a enjoyable learning experience and really take a lot away from the session.
For school students with reading, comprehension or articulation difficulties, I read through the texts or parts of the text with them out loud, using my own experience of the text to bring out the way the writer uses their language.
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.

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 am an English and Creative Writing student at Coventry University and a bibliophile as well. Out of the passion for literature, I try and make it understandable to my pupils (usually between the ages of 13 and 16) and also interesting by showing them the deeper meaning of the literary texts and the various ways they can be interpreted.
My name is Lilly, I'm 20 and I'm a English and Philosophy student studying at Sussex. I can give lessons to anyone of A-level and below in English and Philosophy. I can help with essay writing, analysis, close reading skills and exam prep.
I am a recent graduate with an MA in English Literary Studies and a BA in Ancient History and English. I undertook Creative Writing as part of my degree and can also offer guidance, editing and proofreading. I am willing to teach anyone with a genuine desire to learn and cater to GCSE level and above. However, I am also open to other enquiries on a case by case basis.
To an extent, getting good grades is a question of playing the game-- I can help you understand what the markers want to see.
I approach each topic by getting a grasp on what the students' particular goals are, and then tailor-making our sessions to ensure that we reach them with time to spare! I'm friendly and patient, but I also require discipline from my students. The majority of the students that I have offered tutoring to have been high-school age, but I'm absolutely open to university level tutoring, too.
I understand that each and every individual learns in different ways and different paces, and I pride myself on being able to adapt to suit a specific student's needs, in order to help them reach their full potential, maximise their learning experience, and achieve their goal grade.
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.
Looking to give lessons to current A level students looking to improve their learning. I teach online through pre-recorded lessons or chat method so there is no need to meet in person or use a webcam. Just inform me which subjects you would like to go over and I will record a lesson and prepare exam methods. You can also send me essays that you have written for me to mark and improve.
I have completed my A levels and I would like to help 11+ students, GCSE and A level students (for English, Biology and Classical Civilisation). I am friendly and like visual tools learner and incorporate this within my lessons. I use practice papers and the new syllabus structure to plan my lessons.
I think teaching should be a shared experience between teacher and pupil, and should open up discussions and insight into various other topics in addition to the particular one it is addressing. With literature in particular, so much of the subject is based on having a good think or conversation about the texts to improve how you read it and what you end up writing about it.
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.
Doctorate in English Literature from Edinburgh University : Shakespeare Studies; Thesis Preparation; Bibliography and Referencing; English Tuition - All Levels; Academic and Historical Research; Adult Literacy; Shakespeare on Film.
I can tutor anyone of any ability up to the first year of university. I would first get the student to highlight areas of difficulty that would need focusing on, as well as making sure to cover the entire syllabus. Each lesson, I would explain a new grammar point or theme in its most basic form, then complete some practice questions or plan an essay.
My teaching methods tend to be revolve around discussion and interaction with the student. Emphasis is placed on increasing the student's confidence in analysing, discussing, and spotting key points themselves through structured prompts.
