About me

Hello, my name is Jack and I am studying for a BA in Classics at Oxford University.

I have personal experience is OCR and AQA examinations for both GCSE and A-Level English, Classics, Latin and Greek, and in Edexcel examinations for French and German.

In my opinion the best tutoring session is highly engaging, fully supportive and educational, and allows you to learn with confidence in your subject, feeling positive that you have achieved the goals you want to reach. I endeavour to ensure all of these qualities in my tutorials, and make sure that they are highly enjoyable too!

I am an enthusiastic, friendly and hard-working tutor, passionate about what I do and committed to making sure that a student receives all the help and support they need, while encouraging independence and original thought in the classroom. I have experience of assisting and teaching in GCSE and A-Level English, Latin, Classics and German classes, skills which required me to lead group sessions, plan work schedules and talk students through their coursework.

I am experienced in both English Literature and Language at all levels, and my particular interest lies in all genres of poetry and Shakespearean literature, however I am also eager to help with any element of the syllabus, and to tutor in essay writing skills and critical or creative writing. I am incredibly passionate about Classical Civilisation, Latin and Greek, for which I have strong experience in translation, set texts for commentary, ancient history and material studies, as a Classics degree demands. I achieved an A in French AS and an A* in A2 German, and I am happy to tutor in grammar, reading and writing or speaking practice for oral examinations in both of these languages.

I have a very flexible schedule, and I am willing to tailor times around the student’s needs. I am free at weekends and on most weekdays, and I am available to tutor both in term time and during the holidays.

Please feel free to contact me with any interests or queries, and I look very forward to hearing from you!

Amazing teaching method. My son was debating whether to drop Latin or take it at GCSE. He feels confident to do so now with Jack.
