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.
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 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.
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.
Well aware of the current educational climate, I aim to provide lessons tailored precisely to the needs and learning styles of individuals.
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 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. 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 believe that the best one-to-one tutors create a positive and approachable working environment, and experience tells me this is the best way to achieve high results. I aim to build a friendly atmosphere that allows students to push themselves towards their potential.
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.
I believe that the best way to improve your Latin and Greek quickly is through thorough knowledge of the grammar and syntax of the languages. I would look to promote this with testing as well as helping a student to spot the patterns which make wrote learning easier.
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 a student at Jesus College, Oxford where I am studying for a B.A. in Classics and German.
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.
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.

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.
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 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.

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.
