MY ROLE AS A LATIN TUTOR
I am an extra support to your regular Latin classwork.
It's often useful to add in some private tuition especially in exam year.
Tuition is not a substitute for your learning the prescribed Latin vocabulary for the exam course, and being well read in the relevant aspects of Roman culture and civilisation.
The advantage of having some private tutorials is to enable you to build confidence in language comprehension
and to improve your grasp of the set texts.
WHAT HELP CAN YOU EXPECT
Get to grips with any aspects of Latin you find tricky. For CE it can often be how to answer the comprehension questions with more precision. For scholarship entrance you may want extra help with understanding purpose and result clauses, subjunctives, past participles and the passive.
Starter Latinists are welcome.
I mainly use Cambridge Latin backed up by grammar and exercises from So You Really Want To Learn Latin, ecce Romani and Collins Grammar.
I also teach Minimus for those starters who may have fallen behind
due to fewer school lessons.
I am available by email following your tutorial to mark your work, and provide feedback and advice.
