I teach children of secondary school age and adults of any age. I can teach absolute beginner up to undergraduate, and am available for sessions on an occasional or an intensive basis.
I am happy to focus on language, literature, and history. Some classes will focus on a text you want help guiding through, others might be on grammar topics and exercises to build up vocabulary, or we might inspect an ancient artefact together.
I currently teach online only. One advantage of this is that there is a wealth of good material on the internet for Classics; I can show you where the good stuff is hidden, and what might be most helpful for you.
I graduated from Oxford University in 2015, with a 2.1 in Classics. I specialised in Latin and Greek linguistics, and during that time I taught with the Iris Project, a great charity which promotes classics in schools. Since then I've taught young teenagers beginning their journey in Latin, and postgraduates who want to learn the language for their research.
After graduating I was a civil servant for several years. Much of my spare time is spent reading and researching Latin and Greek, so I'd love to share the pleasure - and treasure - of these ancient books with you!
Cancellations and rescheduling times are free up to 24hrs before the lesson begins. After that, you will be charged 50% the price of the lesson.
Taking Latin lessons with Jack was both enjoyable and intellectually rewarding: In the course of a couple of months he took me from having no previous knowledge of the language to being able to parse and comprehend complex texts. He is a patient, organised, and thorough tutor who offers clear instruction and explanation infused with his enthusiasm for the classical world! - Peter E
Jack volunteered as a teacher and events helper for The Iris Project in 2013 - 4. During that time, he was a committed, reliable and very effective member of the team. He went out of his way to support a large festival we were running on top of his other teaching, and we were impressed by his ability to get stuck into a wide range of roles calmly and efficiently.
