LATIN TUTOR IN KENT
Hugh Ferrier, fully qualified Latin teacher, offers one-to-one home tuition, mainly in West Kent
MY ROLE AS A LATIN TUTOR
I am an extra support to your regular Latin classwork.
Many schools offer extra curricular Latin clinics outside the normal timetable.
However it's often useful to have a few sessions of private tuition especially in exam year.
Private 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 optimise your grasp of the set texts.
TUTORIALS IN PERSON
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 understanding purpose and result clauses and the subjunctive mood, or past participles and the passive voice. In GCSE or Highers you may want some tips on how better to decipher the sentence constructions of an orator like Cicero, or learn how to scan a dactylic hexameter from Vergil's Aeneid
( which is good fun, and easier than you think ! ).
I am available by email following your tutorial to mark your work, and provide feedback and advice.
