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.

Education

Bachelor with honours in Literature

Experience / Qualifications

I am teaching French and Literature, English ESL, Latin and History since 2010 in French State schools, in international schools like IBS and LIL in Wembley, in British Sports programme like BSA.

This course is aimed at anyone wishing to learn or relearn the Latin language, progressively access literature, history, philosophy, ancient sciences, and approach Latin culture. It is also intended for any pupil or student wishing for support in this subject. Learning the Latin language presupposes a few solid bases of French grammar that we review of course if necessary, before installing Latin grammatical knowledge. Learning Latin develops the rigor and sense of translation.

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.

Learn Ancient Greek and Latin by natural method, speaking, hearing and writing
Discover the culture of the ancient Greeks and Romans, reading and understanding the very languages in which they developed their thought. With me as your teacher, you will be able to learn the basic grammar of Greek and Latin in a very short time and read your favourite authors in the original. Communication in these ancient and very ancient languages is essential. With the help of dialogues and active use of the language you will be able to learn twice as fast and with more pleasure. You don't have to wait years to be able to read simple texts like Caesar's or Xenophon's. Three or four months of assiduous study can bring you results and performance you can hardly imagine.

I have a Masters in Classical Languages and have been teaching secondary schools for many years, so I know what is difficult in the ancient languages and would like to guide you through it. Are you also ready for Plato and Virgil?

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.

Noelia
Language, mathematics, history and Latin. School reinforcement and support, homework help and study techniques
Third-year student in Humanities and Primary Education Teaching at the University of Alcalá de Henares. I offer to give private classes in subjects related to letters at the infant, primary and ESO levels, as well as help in preparing exams and homework. If the student presents some type of educational need, I could adapt perfectly. My goal is to help the student not only academically but also emotionally. I give homework after and at the beginning of each class to check the student's progress. These classes are aimed at children from 3 to 12 years old approximately. The aim is to help them in the subjects (mentioned above) that present difficulties, as well as in the problems that usually arise when studying the lessons.

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.
