About Me

As a teacher, my approach is progressive, meaning I am more a guide through a learning journey than an authority. I am careful to help my students to build up skills that will make them autonomous learners and value long-term learning opposed to short-term (learning for tests) learning. When teaching languages, I do my best to develop topics the students are interested in, therefore I listen to them carefully, take notes of their interests and find ways to pair linguistic notions with wished topics.
Usually, my lessons are built in the way that every students will be able to produce some work and then the improvement will come from my feedback.

I studied Latin for 6 years (high school and university) and read the works of (among others) : -Ovidius -Virgil -Horace -Civero -Catullus I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to sit an exam, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams at school / university. - I can help you with assignments / HW. - I can help you with translations / commentaries / grammar / syntax.

Maths up to GCSE level, Classics (Latin, Ancient Greek) to A-level
Hi there! I am currently in my third year studying Classics at Oxford University, with extensive maths knowledge up to A-level and experience teaching abroad. I aim to provide flexible and focused lessons that are specifically tailored to the individual needs of the student. Once we’ve discussed the particular areas you’re finding challenging or want to work on, these tutorial sessions can be focused towards discussing particular concepts for better understanding and working through examples together, before moving on to practising exercises and past questions on your own to be marked. If you are working towards an exam, we will also go through exam techniques and effective revision methods, again to suit you! I offer regular feedback and like to set specific goals which students can work towards. If you have any questions or would like to see a proposed lesson plan please drop me a message and we can discuss it from there! Experience: - Currently reading Classics at Worcester College, Oxford, currently with a 2:1 equivalent after 2 years. - 12 A*s at GCSE, 3 As at A-level (Latin, Maths, English Literature). - 3 months teaching Maths and English in a Ghanaian combined primary and secondary school - I’ve had several years of work experience and always aspire to provide a professional, helpful and enjoyable service.

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.

Marco
Private tutoring for English, Italian and Latin. Interactive lessons and conversations, preparation for University.
Hey there! My name is Marco, I am a 21 years old university student from Venice, Italy. I love languages and culture, and I think really the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. This is why in my classes I take great care to ensure that my classes are interactive, so that the students feel engaged and do not get bored. I can help you with all your English needs, reading, speaking and listening. If you want to study at a University in English, I can help you to be prepared by teaching you how to write proper academic papers and avoid the common mistakes non-native speakers make. I also teach Italian and Latin, which I studied extensively in Italy. My teaching style is informal and interactive, as I think the best lesson should feel like a conversation rather than a lecture. I can help you with all your homework needs, and I will add a bit of cultural dimension so you can really feel invested in what you are learning. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information, I am always available and I will respond fast.

Cogito ergo sum. La bellezza della lingua e letteratura latina

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.

Luciano
Qualified Italian student giving Latin and Ancient Greek lessons in Edinburgh.
I am studying Social Anthropology and Politics at the University of Edinburgh. Classics are one of the biggest interests of mine; I started studying Latin and Ancient Greek languages and literature 6 years ago and I have been teaching for three years. I think studying these languages led me to be more aware of who I am as well as understand what is really worth. Latin (Ancient greek too) lessons consist of two different parts: grammar and literature. By studying grammar you are not going to just receive boring notions about the structure of the language, but you are going to deepen processes and rules that form Latin; with this method we are going to discuss about Latin and Greek mindset and then discuss about important themes studied by ancient people in literature. Furthermore, according to your needs and goals, we can exercise on translation of texts.
