My Experience

Tutored since graduating in 2013.
I have tutored Latin, Classical Greek, Ancient History and Classical Civilisation to A-Level.
Extensive experience preparing students for Oxbridge interviews and successful Common Entrance and 11+ tutor with students going on to schools including Eton, St Edwards Oxford and Westminster.
I also spent the summer after graduating teaching at a school in Bahir Dar Ethiopia with the charity Link Ethiopia.


“In the run up to my Ancient History AS Level, I was having real difficulty getting to grips with my Roman History paper. Harry’s approach really clarified things for me and supplemented what we were being taught in class, I went on to get an A.” Michael, Oxford

“Edward had found himself left behind in Latin lessons and struggling to consolidate his knowledge of Latin grammar and put it into effect when translating. Tutoring with Harry gave Edward the grammatical confidence to get the A level mark he needed and deserved.” Jean, London

My Approach to Private Tuition

Classical subjects are easily caricatured as dusty, distant and irrelevant. I believe it is essential to combine a focused, precise approach to the linguistic nitty gritty of grammar and vocabulary but always to keep an eye on the broader picture, on the rich, diverse and unique viewpoint students can gain from in depth study of these cultures which have so shaped our modern world.
