Oxford Classics student offering Ancient Greek and Latin from complete beginner to Pre-U

Methodology

My teaching extends beyond class, including marking essays and homework outside the lesson.

When teaching the languages from scratch, I will set weekly vocabulary to learn outside the lesson whilst during my time with the pupil we will tackle grammar and syntax -one aspect at a time-, starting with a walk-through of how it works and then some exercises with a follow up homework which we will review the following lesson.

To meet specific requirements for public exams such as Common Entrance, GCSEs, A levels and Pre-Us as well as help with essay writing and university applications, I will tailor my lessons to suit each student's syllabus and board. The lessons will be split between language work - which will consist of first going over any queries about marked homework and then addressing any grammar and syntax issues - and literature work - first we will run through a literal translation of set texts, then work on literary commentary and alongside this we will continue to work on essays-.

Experience

I am a Classics undergraduate student at Christ Church, Oxford. I previously studied Ancient Greek and Latin at Westminster school, London, where I achieved A* in both subjects for A levels. Having undergone an English education I am very familiar with the structure of English public exams and the secrets to getting the grades you want.
