Classical Civilisation tutoring for Secondary Education

This class is designed for people taking Classical Civilisation for either A-Level or GCSE. In this class, I will aim to teach you the fundamental essay skills needed to express complex ideas with clarity, and how to back up points with a balance of evidence and evaluation.

This course is highly tailored towards the individual needs of the student, as well as their course content. Please be aware that I may not have learned the same content that the student is learning - however, the base skills of the subject remain the same across all areas.

My specialist areas include The Odyssey, The Aeneid, Sparta, Athens and Augustus’ Rome.

Extra information

Please have a textbook/other form of notes for factual recall, as I may not have learned the same course content.

About Me

Hiya! I am a student who had her a levels cancelled thanks to coronavirus. However, due to all this free time, I am now able to transfer all my knowledge to you!
Before the virus hit, I was studying Classical Civilisation, English Literature and Art and Design, in which I was predicted A*s across the board. I currently have a place at Hertfordshire University for animation and games art.
I would love to teach you! Please visit my profile to view my classes.

Education

I am currently predicted 3A*s in the following A level exams: Classical Civilisation, English Literature and Art and Design.
I achieved two 7s, five 8s and four 9s at GCSE.

Experience / Qualifications

I have experience teaching art to students from the ages of 11 - 20, and would be open to teaching anyone of a higher age who doesn’t mind being taught by an 18 year old (art is universal after all!) I also have experience lecturing and teaching in English Literature.
This class is for artists who wish to learn any of the following mediums: - pencil - coloured pencil - watercolour - oil paint - gouache - ink and lineart This class is designed to be tailored to the specific needs of the student and their personal style. I am most proficient in realism but am also able to teach more cartoonesque styles for those who enjoy fan art or other kinds of stylized art. My teaching method is through mutual art - after discussion with the student, I will send you an image that we will both attempt to draw or replicate. The student is able to learn from my personal method, and I will be able to give live feedback and tips. I am currently set to go to university for games art in the autumn.
This class is designed for students taking English Language at GCSE or A-Level, or any other exam equivalent. In this class, I will aim to teach you the fundamental skills needed to express yourself clearly in essays, in order to convey ideas with confidence and clarity. Examples of texts I specialise in include Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, and many forms of poetry, including romantic (ie Keats, Shelley etc) and Contemporary. Please note that if a student is not currently studying any of these, it will not detract from their ability to learn from these classes. I am currently a student awaiting her A level results, as exams have been cancelled due to coronavirus. I was previously predicted 3A*s in all my subjects.
This class is for those who want to learn the very basics of art skill in order to begin a creative journey. In this course, I will strive to teach you the fundamental skills that any artist needs to create beautiful art. This class focuses on accuracy and draftsmanship - being able to replicate images with confidence and clarity. In this class, we will focus on shape, line and form, and how to translate 3D images into a 2D space. You don’t need to have any prior knowledge of art - this class is designed to help complete beginners learn to draw. However, this class is tailored towards late teens or adults. If you’re looking to learn how to draw while stuck at home in quarantine, I’m here to help!

In the lessons we deal with grammar and vocabulary. And several practical exercises. Students who need tutoring, just like adults who want to learn fluent Spanish, can come to me. During the coronavirus situation, lessons will be given via skype. For more information, send me a message :)

Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a young, qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. While each child encounters unique learning difficulties, the ever increasing number of students per class is forcing teachers to standardize their teaching method. Faced with this observation, I decided to specialize in individual tutoring in order to guide each student on the path to success. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive whiteboard. This educational tool considerably improves the student / teacher interaction. The student only needs a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of his knowledge in mathematics. The goal is to identify its weak points and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to their specific needs. I make it a tailor-made remediation program aimed at gradually filling each of its shortcomings. At the same time, I support the student in learning new subjects by making sure that he masters the mathematical notions necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do substantive work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to modern means of communication, the pupil benefits from emergency assistance accessible remotely 7 days a week (help with homework, explanation the day before an assessment, etc.).
