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.
Welcome! A freelance tutor and singer, I give "Personal tuition in the right key". I can help you get the highest grades in exams, and study in the "key" that best suits you. Like the right song choices, I often inspire my students to succeed.
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.

As a teacher, I aim to tailor to the individual needs of my student, developing their skills in the areas that need most help before helping them to grow intellectually overall, through a range of lecture-style teaching, exercises, and take away work that I will mark and give feedback upon.
I believe that learning happens best in an informal, encouraging and supportive environment. I am enthusiastic about my subject and aim to make learning fun and enjoyable. Together, we will identify areas of particular need and lessons will be tailored accordingly.
I prefer to give lessons to GCSE students and below, but I'm also happy to teach beginners of any age. My teaching method is grammar heavy and involves a lot of practice translations to give the student as much experience as possible.
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.
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.
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.
I am very patient and work with students to find those areas of the language which are causing them problems, and then select the most appropriate teaching materials and exercises to help them master the language and gain confidence in examinations.
My teaching method is flexible, and I tailor it to each student. So, my approach all depends on what works for you.
In my lessons I try to teach a quite complex language in relation to the Roman world, rather than as detached theory. I also try to have students work out the rules and syntax themselves, rather than standing and explaining it to them, as this allows them to nurture a deeper understanding of how language works.
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 teach based on the student's individual requirements. I tend to focus on helping the student to improve their weakest areas through viewing these from different perspectives. I also aim to help students learn effective techniques for rote learning.
In my teaching I am as adaptable as I can be according to the needs of the pupil. I can work with a variety of courses; always concentrating on reinforcing the basic grammar, vocabulary and syntax through reading as much Latin as possible.
I work with beginner up to GCSE level students with a particular focus on establishing a firm foundation in grammar and using these skills to approach text and translation. From my degree I have noticed that the most successful students are those who have an exceptional grasp of Latin grammar .
