MPhil Classics graduate offering Greek and Latin tutoring from GCSE to research level

Methodology

Simply put - I am a very enthusiastic Classics student and I would enjoy the opportunity to help other students with their studies; willing to offer academic tutoring from secondary school to postgraduate level.

I cannot honestly say that I have always found the languages easy (!), and so I am both well-attuned to understanding the particular difficulties experienced by students, but also determined to help them overcome their difficulties with the subject in order to enable them to enjoy their study. At the same time, I am able to remain pragmatic and strategic about performance in coursework and examinations by adhering to a curriculum / mark scheme.

Background

I have offered tutoring for about 5 years
I have formally taught about 4 students, but I have given help to many more
Since I really do care about helping students tackle their particular problems, I have been told on each occasion that I have been a great help

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £190

Details

I can also offer tutoring in London - though I would have to charge slightly more for travel and would need to hold a lesson that lasts more than 1 hour
