London-based English and Latin Tutor with First Class Honours from Cambridge

Methodology

My English teaching takes inspiration from the Practical Criticism paper at Cambridge University: this focuses on close analysis of a text, pondering particular choices of vocabulary, syntax, and structure.

When teaching Latin, I encourage an etymological approach from the get-go: my tutees quickly gain the confidence to posit that the Latin 'amicus' might be related to 'ami' in French or 'amigo' in Spanish.

Rather than giving up when confronted with something unfamiliar, it’s about finding a viable angle from which to approach a problem.

Of course, this ‘angle’ will differ from individual to individual, so in the first few sessions I work to establish the learning methods a student finds most useful: spider diagrams are not for everyone!

Experience

I graduated from Cambridge in 2019 with a First in English, going on to achieve a distinction in my master's from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.

As well as a year assisting the drama department at a leading independent secondary school, I have taught English and Latin in state primary schools in London and Versailles, France. I have given workshops on Shakespeare in universities across the United States, Oxbridge interview practice to students in China, Korea, and Japan, and helped tutees taking the 11+ gain entrance to their chosen school.
