Summary of Relevant Qualifications & Experience:
As a Private Tutor I have recently helped many students to succeed at CE/Scholarship level for entry into schools such as Charterhouse, Eton, Halliford, Reed's and RGS. I have also tutored students from Winston Churchill, a local comprehensive where students tackle Latin GCSE on a very limited timetable. In addition to this experience I have:
- Worked as a small-group tutor at Royal Holloway, University of London and the JACT Latin Summer School.
- Worked as a professional marker for the literature components of A level Latin (OCR) and for the entrance examinations to my previous school (a highly selective grammar-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 school, I of course have an enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check held by my current employer.
