Member since 2020

Throughout my career to date I have endeavoured to bring great enthusiasm to all of my teaching and tutoring. As a result the vast majority of the students that I have tutored have gained high grades at GCSE and A level, and most have continued to be successful in their university studies. While studying for my PhD I taught classes for two years in Latin and Classical Studies to first and second year undergraduates at St. Andrews. I have also taught Latin language classes to adult learners at Reading University Summer School, involving both beginners and intermediate students, and I am used to catering to the needs of students at various stages of their learning. My style is relaxed and I always aim to make learning enjoyable while promoting academic progress. I also encourage active participation and believe in allowing all students to comment constructively on their own progress and the different activities undertaken in lessons and tutorials. Certificate in Proofreading and Copy-Editing, Chapterhouse Publishing.
