Qualified Latin teacher with extensive classroom teaching and tutoring experience at all levels from beginners to degree level.


Proven track record in helping students to prepare for examinations from the Common Entrance & Scholarship papers to GCSE and beyond.


Based in Horsell, Woking in Surrey.

"I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher I possess tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humour, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanised or de-humanised".


Dr Haim Gott, Teacher and Child


Emma Williams has almost 20 years' experience as a qualified teacher of Latin and has worked with students at all levels. She started teaching Undergraduates whilst finishing a PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London and in 1998 she went on to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Education at St John's College, Cambridge.

Pipiatum: a fantastic Apple app for Common Entrance Levels 1-3. Well worth paying for.


Cyberlatin: a host of some great free Common Entrance & Scholarship resources plus some excellent online grammar games.


Virdrinksbeer: an utterly bizarre choice of name but don't be put off by that or by the lurid colour scheme; there's some good stuff here for Common Entrance and GCSE students, with a particular focus on vocabulary learning.
