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.
I take a professional and sympathetic approach to those with difficulties and to those wishing to maximise potential (e.g. Oxbridge entrance candidates). Personal contact fully backed up with all materials available in electronic format. - Which subject(s) do you teach?

My teaching methodology focusses on sculpting the approach to a student's personal learning style and strengths, and creates pride in personal progress.

My teaching methodology considers the most recent studies on strategic and motivated learning, because I think that teachers should always be up-to-date on teaching techniques and they should have interdisciplinary skills. I believe that a solid base of grammar has to be built beside innovative and practical execises where communicative competence can be developed.

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.
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 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 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.
In terms of languages, grammar is the most important component for me.
I've studied Latin for ten years now, having begun in Year 7 and carried it all the way through to my degree, in addition to Classical Civilisation. I am available to tutor in Latin reading and translating, focusing on assessing a student's grammar skills and developing from the technical side.
My teaching method is based on the national curriculum and reflects the classic foundation of the Latin grammar and syntax.
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.
In both Greek and Latin I am able to tutor up to GCSE level and believe that the best way to tackle the ancient languages it through the 'little and often' method, particularly with vocabulary. At university I have written a number of first class essays, thus am able to aid essay structure and the analytical process of examining ancient evidence.
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 teaching method is very tailored to the needs of the individual. I assess what the student wants/needs to work on and plan my lessons accordingly.
I am a fully qualified Classics teacher providing high-quality bespoke tuition. I take pride in tailoring my approach to each student's needs and providing a positive experience. I work at all levels, including Common Entrance, GCSE and A-Level. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I specialise in the teaching of Latin, Ancient Greek and Ancient History. - Tell me about your qualifications.
