I have been tutoring Latin, Ancient Greek, Classics and Italian for over 10 years, and have several thousand hours of experience teaching these subjects to students and pupils of all ages. Additionally, I have been working as a Latin and Classics teacher at an independent day school for girls in London and have taught at a state high school (liceo classico) in Italy. I have also taught undergraduate Latin and Greek at UCL`s Department of Greek and Latin, and have worked as a Latin teacher to mature students at both the UCL and King’s College Summer School programmes.
Subjects I teach
Latin KS3, GCSE, A-Level
Classical Civilisation A-level
Italian GCSE, A-level
Ancient Greek KS3 +
Classics for undergraduates
I got a PhD at the University College London, specialising in Latin grammar in Late Antiquity. I have an MA in Latin Philology (100/100 cum laude) and a BA in Classical Studies (100/100) from the University of Padua in Italy.
My Passion And How I Inspire
As someone who was inspired by classical studies at school, I like to give back to secondary school pupils what I received in my turn. Most of all, I hope to have a positive impact on young people’s lives.
My approach to tuition is to construct individualised tuition programmes for each student, paying close attention to their precise needs as they progress in their subject.
I am a strong believer that engaged students are successful students. As such, it is my aim to make any subject that I am tutoring as interesting as possible. So often, students fail to sustain their efforts in a subject due to a lack of interest in areas that they find tedious, particularly grammar. However, I have found by relating such problems topics in some way to something that the student finds interesting or by supplementing each tuition session with something different, interest and progress can be maintained. As someone who is very passionate about studying and teaching classical studies and languages, I am driven to encourage others to feel the same way as I do about them, at least in some way.
For me, it is also critical to ensure a safe learning environment during sessions where tutees feel comfortable to ask questions and are free to explore their subject. Moreover, I believe in encouraging students in their progress so as to build up their confidence.
