Common Entrance and GCSE Latin Preparation by Cambridge Graduate

Classics is a largely misunderstood subject. It's no longer a widely spoken language, but the effect that the Latin and (Ancient) Greek languages have had on European and North African culture is important in contemporary society.

This class will help guide students through taking important Latin exams, either for common entrance or GCSEs. I aim to provide a holistic approach to learning so students have methods for remembering information and tackling tricky questions that go beyond simple rote learning.

I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge, where I achieved a double first in the Music Tripos. Before that I studied Latin and Ancient Greek at A-Level where I achieved A*s in both of these subjects, having also gained A*s in them at GCSE level. I've loved the classics for as long as I can remember, and it was a close decision between studying classics and music at university but have subsequently tried to keep up my skills in this area. I continue to use Classics widely in my degree, translating Medieval Latin treatises and documents on musical performance for my third-year dissertation, for example.

About Me

I enjoy teaching and trying to find ways to convey information to others. I have been very lucky to have some excellent teachers during my time at school and Cambridge and hope to impart some of the things that I have learnt to others.

Education

2020-: Royal College of Music - Clarinet Performance
2017-2020: University of Cambridge - Double First in Music Tripos
2010-2017: Highgate School - 1 D1, 2 A*, A at A-Level; 11 A* at GCSE

Experience / Qualifications

I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge, where I achieved a double first in the Music Tripos. I am currently studying clarinet performance at the Royal College of Music. I spend much of my time performing music, teaching music and the classics, and working in music outreach. In the last few years, I have worked on the Ealing Youth Orchestra Roadshow team, demonstrating music to local primary school children and giving them basic instrumental lessons; singing alongside the Armonico Consort, performing in schools across England as part of a wider 'Supersize Polyphony' tour; and working in coordination with Wigmore Hall Learning during my time working at the Hall.
This class will help teach students music theory, placing this theory in its wider context. Students are often forced through learning an instrument (and especially the theory side of things) without ever appreciating the music itself or being given a chance to appreciate it. This class seeks to broaden students' musical horizons, whilst also teaching the necessary material.

Hector
Latin & Ancient Greek classes by Classical Philologue
Let's start by declensions and so on. We'll discover the verbal tenses and how is a phrase done. You don't know the slight aspects unless have studied how Ancient Greek's verbs work, or the Ancient Indian. So, if we can translate texts (at first easier ones, the the original), we could reach anywhere in the vast world around the Roman Empire. Latin is the basis for the Romance languages. And Greek is more usual between us than you could imagine (Medicine, over all). You could structure your mind as the ancient did! They are the "little box" where you can put in whatever you want. It also provides a manner to live and to work in order to know the essential tasks and the rest.

Silvia
Cogito ergo sum. La bellezza della lingua e letteratura latina
Nel latino risiedono le radici non solo delle lingue romanze, ma anche della cultura europea. Imparare questa lingua e la sua letteratura può essere una sfida estremamente arricchente ed entusiasmante. Le mie lezioni mirano ad offrire gli strumenti per tradurre e apprezzare al meglio i testi latini, sottolineando come parole e strutture latine sono tutt'ora vive nelle lingue moderne.

Latin - learn how to read and understand one of Europe's most important languages
Latin was and remains one of the most historically important languages in Europe. This class will teach you the fundamentals of an ancient and difficult tongue. Classes are flexible depending on the needs and availability of the students. While it may be a challenge, it's also highly rewarding as you can gain a sense of connection to the world with a language with so much history and influence.

Theresa
Bijles in Duits (moedertaal)/Engels/Latijn/Wiskunde
Growing up in Germany with a German mother and a Dutch father, I soon became interested in different languages. Therefore I chose for Latin, English and German in my Abitur, which I finished with cum laude. Also mathematics were part of my main subjects, which I always enjoyed doing. After finishing my Abitur in Germany, I came to The Netherlands to study Interior Architecture & Design. I have been tutoring since I was 16 and always been motivated by helping students improve in their school work and hope to be able to help you soon as well!

Tiffany
Private tutor in Maths, French, Latin and Ancient Greek
Hi! I am a recent graduate with a first class degree in Classics from the University of Exeter. I am friendly, chatty and enthusiastic about teaching, of which I have over two years` experience. I tutor Maths up to GCSE, with plenty of experience for common entrance prep, school entrance tests and GCSE preparation. I also tutor Latin and Ancient Greek up to A level. I can teach the whole course if the subject is not offered at your school, or can help you alongside your school work, in whatever area that you are struggling with. I tutor French up to GCSE. I can provide grammar and vocab assistance, and help in all areas: writing, reading and speaking. I offer two types of tutoring: I can tutor online, using an advanced virtual whiteboard/ video call service, allowing for interactive lessons that combine fun with learning. I also tutor in person within London. I will come to your house so that you can be taught within the comfort of your own home, and provide resources for us to use in the lessons, so all you need to worry about is having a pen and paper! I am fully DBS checked and can provide references/testimonials on request. Whether you or your child is looking for help with preparing for a particular entrance test or exam, or looking for regular help alongside school, please get in touch and we can arrange a zoom meeting to discuss what you are looking for.

Luca
French Course and Latin Grammar (Secondary level)
I offer tutoring courses for secondary school, from 1ère to rhéto, in the region of Charleroi, in French (for all types of courses: Spelling, Grammar, Literature, Text Commentary ...) and in Grammar Latin. Exceptionally, during this pandemic period, I give my lessons remotely via the Zoom application (available for free on Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS). For any additional information, do not hesitate to contact me. I am a student in theater and performance, holder of a Bachelor in Human and Social Sciences obtained at UCL-Mons (former FUCaM), graduate of Saint-Michel de Gosselies College (Latin-Math8 option). I have also perfected my practice of languages, especially Latin, during my few trips abroad. In particular, I participated in a one-year Erasmus university exchange in Italy and worked for two years in Portugal, where I also gave French and Latin lessons. I have been giving private lessons for 9 years.

Andrea
Latin, Ancient Greek and Italian language: grammar, translation and speaking (Italian)
As a first class graduate from the University of Warwick, I wish to use my knowledge of Latin, Ancient Greek and Italian language. I teach grammar and translation all levels from beginner to undergraduate, whether learning for fun or preparing for exams. I understand thst these languages can be difficult for English speakers to muster, yet, as a former student, I do understand what makes younger learners puzzled and, therefore, I can explain things to them in a clearer and accessible way. Latin and Greek classes are to be focused especially on translation - also on students' request - with further clarifications on grammar if neded. For those in need of Italian tutoring, I am more than happy, as a native Italian speaker, to help students struggling with speaking and listening by holding conversation classes on a regular basis. I can also offer separate insights on grammar, idioms and other peculiarities if needed.
