I am a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher of Classics, Ancient History and English. I have two years of teaching experience and am now branching out to offer my services as a private tutor alongside my part-time teaching job.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach GCSE and A-level Classical Civilisation and Ancient History, as well as GCSE English. I can also offer help more broadly in things such as dissertation and essay writing as well as study skills.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Ancient History and Archaeology from the University of Birmingham. I have a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education from the University of Portsmouth, so am a fully qualified teacher.
- How much do you charge?
I charge between £25-£30 p/h dependent on the subject and level.
- Where do you teach?
I travel to students' homes to teach. I am located in the new forest area, so can travel to surrounding areas including Totton, Ashurt, Lyndhurst, Hythe etc as well as offering tuition in the Southampton area. I can also tutor online via Skype.
- When are you available?
I have availability at the following times:
Tuesday from 3PM onwards
Wednesday from 3PM onwards
Thursday all day.
Saturday & Sunday at agreed times.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am happy to teach students of all ages, from those currently studying for their GCSEs or A-levels in my subjects, to university students and adults obtaining qualifications later in life.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I mainly prepare students for their GCSEs and A-Levels in Classical Civilisation, Ancient History or English, but can also offer essay writing support and study skills lessons to students studying for other qualifications.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can tutor online via Skype or email.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I aim to ensure that every student achieves their goal at the end of studying for any qualification. The look on a students face when they reach their end goal is a real motivator for me. If you work hard and are dedicated to your studies, I will help to you achieve whatever it is you may be aiming for!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have two years of experience in teaching A-Level Classical Civilisation. In my current teaching role I am the course leader for A-Level Classical Civilisation, so it is my responsibility to ensure that students are fully prepared for their exams. This means I have experience in running extra sessions for catch-up, exam skills and high-grade achievement alongside lessons for my students. I have also been involved with teaching and leading GCSE English for students who need to re-sit their exams to obtain their qualification. Whilst at university I was a learning-support assistant in a functional skills maths class for adult learners.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Birmingham, and trained as a teacher with the University of Portsmouth.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently teach AS and A2 level Classical Civilisation classes at a general FE college. My students are mainly aged 16-19 but I do have adult students as well. My students cover a range of abilities but I ensure that all lessons are inclusive, supporting students with a range of learning difficulties and those who are aiming for high grades.
