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.
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.
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 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.
My teaching methods vary depending on the subject and the student – see below: LATIN I teach Latin for beginners both in groups and on a one-to-one basis and am open to working with adults and children alike. My approach to teaching is very structured, as I like to teach the grammar very thoroughly.
Hi! I am an 18 year old sixth form student offering classes in Latin Language and Literature for GCSE or earlier. I am currently taking Latin at A-Level (predicted an A*) and currently hold an offer for Oxford to read classics. I also take further maths and physics and am happy to tutor these at GCSE level.
I think my methodology completely depends on the level and age group of my tutee. As most people find the grammar the hardest aspect of Latin, my lessons especially for beginners would mainly be concentrated on locking down the basic grammar elements such as verb conjugations, noun declensions and sentence structure.
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 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 am flexible and willing to provide whatever support and help you may need. I can work with individuals as well as with small and larger groups, and have experience with both.
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.
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.
Since everyone learns in a different way, I use the first free lesson to assess and discover the learning style of my students. My lessons are designed in partnership with my students or my students’ parents. I use mastery approach across the curriculum, which leads to deeper understanding and gives students the opportunity to contextualise their learning and apply it in real life.
My teaching method is to ensure that the approach to learning is attuned to the student. It is about understanding if a student learns better through listening, reading, or writing. It is also important to structure lessons properly, but not so rigidly that it is not working dynamically with a student, and failing in targetting their needs.
I approach each topic by an easily accessible example and elaborate further on that. Most of the time, even teaching grammar can be less terrifying by doing that. Also, I do not think that frontal education is the best method. Thus, I get the pupil to think through a topic on its own.
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 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 am a 20 year old Cambridge undergraduate studying Politcs and I am offering lessons to ages 11-18 in any subject. To date I have taught mainly Latin and Greek. I aim to promote enthusiasm and engagement with the subject and can also provide help with exam and revision techniques.
Summer 2018: help with modern foreign languages and linguistics. Please refer to (informal) T&C (uploaded) here to Tutor Pages - Which subject(s) do you teach? A serious observation to linguistics students: please make sure you tackle the coursework first.
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.
I have just graduated from the University of Oxford with a First Class degree in Classics, and would love to share my passion for my subject through structured one on one tuition with students of all levels. I will happily tutor any subject within Classics (Ancient History, Latin, Ancient Greek or Classical Civilisation) and will tailor my teaching method to suit the personal needs of each student.
Individual wise you gotta make it fun, as in my opinion students work better in more comfortable and familiar surroundings.
My preferred method is question-based; I feel that it is important for teachers and students to start by figuring out where a student's strengths and weaknesses are, so that focused tuition can address those areas where the student needs to apply the most work.
Well aware of the current educational climate, I aim to provide lessons tailored precisely to the needs and learning styles of individuals.
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 is flexible and sympathetic. When I teach, I usually obtain good results and progress, whether I am helping a 6-year old with reading, or a University student with text analysis or critical theory. I always approach a lesson involving the student/s as much as possible, so they can expect to be a very active part of the class.
I love finding unique ways to help the individual, no two people learn in the exact same way so for me it is about finding what works for that particular person.
I am a passionate teacher and working academic with a doctorate from Oxford specialising in history, languages and entrance exams. As someone who has tutored and worked as an academic for 10 years, I have an excellent knowledge of my subjects. - Which subject(s) do you teach? My main speciality as a published historian is history which I tutor at all levels.
Salve! Nomen mihi est Fergus! I'm a 1st First Honours Classics Graduate from Bristol University and I'm very experienced in tutoring Latin for all abilities. Whether you need help with 11+ or you're anxious about your A-Level, through extensive and focussed passage translation, I can help build up confidence and improve Latin vocabulary and comprehension.
I tutor for ages 7-15, for 7+, 11+, scholarship, and GCSE. I know that students don't want a tutor who is a carbon copy of their teachers at school, and so, I bring a different sort of energy for students. I try and make my lessons fun for all my students, and treat each student uniquely, because no one pupil learns the same way.
