My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was working on my PhD, and never stopped! I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate dissertation.
I try and see things from the student’s point of view when explaining things. I think it is important to have a variety of activities in a tutorial, and for the tutor to be a good listener as well as good at communicating, prompting and explaining. I try to make tuition sessions an enjoyable as well as helpful experience. I like to encourage students to achieve the highest standards they can.
My aim is to help you to improve your skills and confidence so that you get the best grade you can. I offer advice, tips and practice based on my teaching experience, plus plenty of friendly encouragement. I am most often asked to help with essay writing and exam technique.

My teaching method is to set work specific to the course that we can through together such as quizes, worksheets and online mediums. Appropriate and short reconciliation homework will follow that we can discuss in the next lesson.

My name is Robert Martin and I am a Classics graduate from Durham University. Since leaving Durham in 2015 I have spent a year in the travel industry and completed the Graduate Diploma in Law. I am currently working towards my Legal Practice Course before I start as a trainee solicitor in London this September.
My teaching approach varies according to the needs of the student; yet, all lessons are student-centred and engaging! For Classical studies, I like to focus on the understanding of text and evaluation of sources. Furthermore, I work on enhancing the student's critical thinking, defending own opinion with evidence and essay writing.
My teaching method is based on individually tailored lessons and it takes me a lot of time to plan each of them. I have patience and passion for my work and I constantly try to improve my method so my job is an ongoing challenge.
I like to focus on a text-based approach to Latin and Ancient Greek, building up knowledge of grammar and vocabulary while creating confidence in recognising these features and words in example passages.
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.
I focus on using targeted exercises tailored to the student to work with and improve their skills. These exercises vary to suit each student; I can adapt to students over a variety of levels. I prefer to focus on a different area in each lesson, rather than trying to cram in many different skills at once.
In keeping with my Classical background, I am primarily a Socratic teacher: I see my role as to model the thought process that the student should internalise in order to think for herself. This means guiding the student to ask ever-deeper questions of the subject material, and to assess her own understanding.
I have nearly 20 years teaching/tutoring experience from (KS1-KS4). I am passionate about teaching, learning and tutoring and by encouraging confidence in my pupils they are teaching their required standards.
I like to teach in an interactive way, engaging in dialogue with students to promote understanding of core principles which we then apply to specific case studies. I think this method helps students better understand the heart of learning and understanding, so that they can apply principles universally, rather than simply memorize answers.
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 am a year 13 student who has just finished college with a view to studying Classics at Durham next year. I tend to focus on the language side of Classics as this is something which teachers can go over very quickly. Primarily I go through past paper resources and teach my students how to approach different questions and in general improve their translation skills.
My methodology is always focused around the pupil and their requirements. However, especially in Latin, grammar is of course key. Building up vocabulary is also important. But primarily, the understanding of key elements of the Latin grammar is the base upon which everything else is built.
I really enjoy teaching, and am happy to tutor at any level from absolute beginner upwards to A-level and beyond in Latin and classical literature (especially Roman poetry). I am also comfortable giving lessons in ancient history and ancient Greek to a GCSE level. In teaching the languages, I stress the great importance of the fundamentals as a base on which to build up your language skills.
I will strive to introduce a new idea or concept each lesson, ensuring that the student understands the methodology behind it, and go through exercises in the lesson with the student, ensuring that it is fully understood. Further work and consolidation will be recommended to the student to do in their own time, but this is not compulsory.
