As a self-employed, independent online Latin tutor, I offer high-quality tuition that you can access directly from your home. I have an outstanding track record in terms of progress, results and student engagement. With over 20 years' experience as a qualified teacher of Latin to students at all levels, I began my first full time job at The Latymer School, North London in 2000 and moved to Woking High School in 2008, before focusing on my own business from 2022 onwards. My career started with teaching Undergraduates at Royal Holloway, University of London, from where I went on to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Education at St John's College, Cambridge. I have held Qualified Teacher Status since the year 2000.
