-Latin and Ancient Greek with a Cambridge Graduate-

I offer tutoring up to university level (in Latin) and secondary-school level (in Greek), based around the John Taylor JACT courses, but with the freedom to go wherever the student wants. I favour the use of real ancient texts where possible, and at higher levels encourage genuine engagement with literature as something to be read and enjoyed, not just studied.

I hold a Masters in Classics from the University of Cambridge (Gonville and Caius College, 2018) and have worked with some of the most prominent classicists in the world, including Richard Hunter and Mary Beard. This is the experience I am able to give back, by offering a truly informed form of classical tuition.

Extra information

Lessons are taught in English. I am currently studying Philosophy at KUL, so lesson times availability changes week-to-week.

I led the Creative Writing Society at my undergraduate university, and continue to write fiction alongside my academic work. I am always enthusiastic to help people in any area I can, especially those in which I am trained, and genuinely enjoy seeing people improve under my tutelage.

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught undergraduate languages throughout my courses, and as President of the Creative Writing Society taught fiction writing to classes of university students.

Reviews (1)

Charlie is very attentive teacher, open to explain all the details of language. He provides good exercises for pronunciation. Nice to improve English with him.
This class is for students of all ages. I teach students how to write assured and professional essays for their academic courses, ranging from undergraduate- to PhD-level. Students will learn not only the language itself, but also the conventions and styles particular to English-language writing, and how to properly introduce and structure their work. I will also proofread students' final theses for a discounted rate, provided we have met for more than five hours. I am a native English speaker from London, England. I hold an MA from Exeter, and an MPhil from Cambridge, both in Classics, and am currently studying for an MA at KU Leuven in Philosophy. I have written dozens of highly-graded essays in this time, winning several prizes, and have helped peers to similar success. I have also been a part-time professional proofreader for three years.

Serdane
Old language courses for high school students
My name is Serdane and I offer language courses for students in grades 1 to 4 who would find it difficult to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority is to give the student confidence: Latin and Greek are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can pursue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My price includes a complete tutoring (private lessons, the possibility to ask questions outside class hours, writing and correcting questions, etc.).
