In addition, through private tutoring, I recently helped:
One pupil from Hoe Bridge to gain a Scholarship to Reed's School.
One pupil from Hoe Bridge to gain his place at RGS, achieving an A in the Latin CE Level 3.
One pupil from St Andrews to gain his place at Halliford, achieving an A in the Latin CE Level 2.
Everyone is different, and the real joy of private tutoring is the opportunity for you or your child to benefit from truly individualised support and encouragement. In terms of the impact that this can have on someone's performance, private tutoring is hard to beat.

Summary of Relevant Qualifications & Experience:
As a Private Tutor I have helped many students at local prep schools to succeed at both CE and Scholarship level for entry into schools such as RGS, Reed's, Halliford and Cranleigh. I have also tutored students from Winston Churchill, who tackle Latin GCSE on a very limited timetable, and students who are sitting an A level or GCSE in the subject as a private candidate. In addition I have:
- Been rated Outstanding as a teacher several times by Ofsted, including in my school's most recent Inspection (February 2016).
- Worked as a marker for the entrance examinations at my previous school (a grammar-school that was overscubscribed by 12 places to 1) and also as a professional marker for the literature components of A level Latin (OCR).
- Worked as a small-group tutor at the JACT Latin Summer School.
- Fully qualified as a teacher (PGCE Classics, St. John's College, Cambridge), with 19 years' teaching experience in the state sector: The Latymer School in North London and now Woking High School in Surrey.
- A 1st class Honours degree, MA Distinction and PhD in Classics from Royal Holloway, University of London.
As a teacher in a local state school, I of course have an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check held by my current employer.
