I have a degree in Classics and Modern Languages from Durham, and last year completed my teacher training at Cambridge where my school placements included teaching Italian, Latin and Classical Civilisation up to A-Level, and German and Ancient Greek to GCSE. I am currently studying for a PhD in Italian Literature, but I want to continue sharing my love of Classics and Languages by offering individual tuition and helping students progress towards their goals, whether it is going up a grade in exams, or preparing to study a subject at university. My excellent subject knowledge as well as my experience in working with small groups and individuals allows me to be an effective tutor both in ensuring progress as well as inspiring a love of subject in students.

My sessions are structured around the individual needs of students, with my teaching experience and knowledge of the syllabuses integral in preparing students for exams. Online sessions are interactive, encouraging the student to make maximum progress by involving them directly in the material.

Student progress is measured by knowledge checks, as well as by working together on practice questions to ensure that students are well prepared not only in terms of content, but also how to apply it when it comes to an exam. Students will gain the skills they need to take their own learning forward outside of tutoring sessions.

As well as sessions tailored to the individual needs of students in regard to the progress they need to make, where possible sessions will be built upon areas which students enjoy to ensure maximum learning and engagement with the subject material.

In my Languages tuition, sessions use as much target language as possible to work on oral skills and raise confidence in speaking and listening, as well as working on content and knowledge.

In my Classics sessions students will have the opportunity to engage more fully with the Ancient world by utilising original sources and materials to help them understand the subject and bring a greater depth of understanding to the area they are tackling, whether in sculpture or temples in Classical Civilisation, or literature or grammar in Latin and Greek.

Super fantastic teacher, who seems to know everything! Highly recommended, hard working, very approachable, and very kind. We have Emma with us every week for a subject not taught at school and are delighted to have found her. Don’t hesitate to book an interview! Very happy parent and student!

Extremely impressed so far. I would like to thank you for your help. Also really appreciate the feedback after each lesson. Jonny feels so much more confident with his Latin- even after 2 lessons!
