About Me

As a teacher, my approach is progressive, meaning I am more a guide through a learning journey than an authority. I am careful to help my students to build up skills that will make them autonomous learners and value long-term learning opposed to short-term (learning for tests) learning. When teaching languages, I do my best to develop topics the students are interested in, therefore I listen to them carefully, take notes of their interests and find ways to pair linguistic notions with wished topics.
Usually, my lessons are built in the way that every students will be able to produce some work and then the improvement will come from my feedback.

That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible.

I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to sit an exam, I am very demanding.

Hector
Latin & Ancient Greek classes by Classical Philologue
Let's start by declensions and so on. We'll discover the verbal tenses and how is a phrase done. You don't know the slight aspects unless have studied how Ancient Greek's verbs work, or the Ancient Indian. So, if we can translate texts (at first easier ones, the the original), we could reach anywhere in the vast world around the Roman Empire. Latin is the basis for the Romance languages. And Greek is more usual between us than you could imagine (Medicine, over all). You could structure your mind as the ancient did! They are the "little box" where you can put in whatever you want. It also provides a manner to live and to work in order to know the essential tasks and the rest.

Silvia
Cogito ergo sum. La bellezza della lingua e letteratura latina
Nel latino risiedono le radici non solo delle lingue romanze, ma anche della cultura europea. Imparare questa lingua e la sua letteratura può essere una sfida estremamente arricchente ed entusiasmante. Le mie lezioni mirano ad offrire gli strumenti per tradurre e apprezzare al meglio i testi latini, sottolineando come parole e strutture latine sono tutt'ora vive nelle lingue moderne.

Andrea
Latin, Ancient Greek and Italian language: grammar, translation and speaking (Italian)
As a first class graduate from the University of Warwick, I wish to use my knowledge of Latin, Ancient Greek and Italian language. I teach grammar and translation all levels from beginner to undergraduate, whether learning for fun or preparing for exams. I understand thst these languages can be difficult for English speakers to muster, yet, as a former student, I do understand what makes younger learners puzzled and, therefore, I can explain things to them in a clearer and accessible way. Latin and Greek classes are to be focused especially on translation - also on students' request - with further clarifications on grammar if neded. For those in need of Italian tutoring, I am more than happy, as a native Italian speaker, to help students struggling with speaking and listening by holding conversation classes on a regular basis. I can also offer separate insights on grammar, idioms and other peculiarities if needed.

Theresa
Bijles in Duits (moedertaal)/Engels/Latijn/Wiskunde
Growing up in Germany with a German mother and a Dutch father, I soon became interested in different languages. Therefore I chose for Latin, English and German in my Abitur, which I finished with cum laude. Also mathematics were part of my main subjects, which I always enjoyed doing. After finishing my Abitur in Germany, I came to The Netherlands to study Interior Architecture & Design. I have been tutoring since I was 16 and always been motivated by helping students improve in their school work and hope to be able to help you soon as well!
