My teaching method is to approach a concept from where the student's understanding is clearest, to build a firm understand from the foundation up. I love empowering students and helping them to realise their own potential, helping to build a brighter future.
I uphold a structured methodology that prioritizes active learning, reciprocity & collaboration, and efficient time on task. I value students who are willing to actively engage with learning material, and who share & respond to ideas with innovation & ingenuity.
My teaching methodology is to be inclusive with my student and not to write the essay for them but rather help them understand what there writing as I believe that creates sustainable success.
I have been on numerous placements at schools and during these experiences I have been able to express my own pedagogical philosophy. In doing this, it has caused me to yearn for more opportunities to help people learn. I really would find this experience meaningful for my future career and hope that you consider me.
I have an organic approach to teaching, depending on the subject and the student. While it is important to guide a student and help them to perform to the best of their ability it is just as essential to pay close attention to the student's needs.
My name is Déborah, I have an Msc and a PhD in Classics from Edinburgh University. I started tutoring while I was working on my PhD, and never stopped! I can prepare students for all Scottish and English exams, up to the BA. I also have experience helping students work on their Post-Graduate dissertation.
I am a PhD student, graduated in classics with full grades, and I offer classes in Latin, Ancient Greek and Humanities at all levels. I have many years of experience in teaching classical languages so that I can help you to quickly improve your knowledge of grammar and guide you in the translation of ancient texts. I can also help you with the literature (including the metrical reading of texts).
My teaching methodology focusses on sculpting the approach to a student's personal learning style and strengths, and creates pride in personal progress. Lessons are structured around student-led learning and fun, interactive engagement with the topic. Working with students with learning disabilities has taught me to shape a learning environment to suit the particular needs of every single student.
I believe that the best one-to-one tutors create a positive and approachable working environment, and experience tells me this is the best way to achieve high results. I aim to build a friendly atmosphere that allows students to push themselves towards their potential.
My teaching methodology considers the most recent studies on strategic and motivated learning, because I think that teachers should always be up-to-date on teaching techniques and they should have interdisciplinary skills. I believe that a solid base of grammar has to be built beside innovative and practical execises where communicative competence can be developed.
My classes are based on the use of practical examples based on real and accurate information and the use of examples related to the daily life of each person, in order to make the information easy to land and understand
The teaching method altogether depends on the number and category of the students. Sometimes the use of Blackboard is important at times the entire thing is to be narrated. English is commonly not understood today it takes time where as literature today is not having the same weigh than before. To having our youths to acknowledge it.
I focus on true understanding over rigid mechanics, and my goal is to make you grasp the purpose of your work. We will approach each project as a problem to be solved. Working from goal to reality, I hope to make education meaningful and USEFUL.
My approach to the subject is a dialogical approach: we translate together and we analyze the translation from a grammatical, morphological and syntactic point of view. The student does the homework and analyze the errors (if there are any). I am also available for reviews before exams about every literature, history and geography.
I am a PhD from PUC - SP, currently developing a thesis on Medieval History. The classes are intended for all those who want to learn the Latin language from the beginning. The content will always be presented in an expositive and dynamic way, using specific didactic materials, such as the renowned "Reading Latin".
I prefer an inductive method (from the particular to the rule), both because I find that generally it interests more the student, and because it often proves more effective.
Looking to tutor from Secondary upwards to undergraduate degree level in areas of History.
I am looking to give lessons to anyone from High School to an A-level standard. I always initially base my lessos around what the student personally perceives their weakest point to be, as the students self-confidence and personal views are of the utmost importance to me.
I specialise in Ancient Religions, focusing on the culture and beliefs of the ancient world from the 6th century BCE - Late antiquity. I have a MA in ancient religions (Classics) from the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, where my dissertation subject focused on changing views of the afterlife in ancient Greece between the 6th-4th century BCE.
I base my classes on grammar and syntax, both English and Greek one, because a solid grammar knowledge is a guarantee of success especially in ancient languages. The lesson usually lasts two hours, of which one is dedicated to revision and the second one to written exercises.
I approach education by focusing on the student's strengths, needs and areas in which they need or want to excel. Not all people learn the same way and I am focused on making sure that everyone's needs are met when it comes to educational instruction.
I use a range of sensory mnemonics to improve your speed at Latin grammar. You will have tools based on your approach to studying. I create and adapt readings to help you build understanding. From following along with the book - to writing your own, I will help you get to the level of Latin you want.
In both Greek and Latin I am able to tutor up to GCSE level and believe that the best way to tackle the ancient languages it through the 'little and often' method, particularly with vocabulary. At university I have written a number of first class essays, thus am able to aid essay structure and the analytical process of examining ancient evidence.
As a student myself, I understand the difficulties faced by students in the academic field. While I was at school, I often found the the subjects I struggled with the most were also the subjects which I enjoyed the least. In my teaching therefore, I think it is important to keep the student interested and to find interactive and energetic ways of teaching.
My teaching method is very tailored to the needs of the individual. I assess what the student wants/needs to work on and plan my lessons accordingly.
My teaching method is person-centred and based around what is best for each individual student. I have no problem changing my methodology to suit each student's preferred learning method, and like to use a variety of materials and methods to enhance the learning experience.
I am student centered, and think it's best I do little lecturing and have the students take active participation in their learning. I assign a lot of free writing activities in class to get the students more comfortable with with activity and ease writing anxiety as it is their time and space to just write what they want how they want.
My method is based on rigorous language learning, vocabulary and appreciation of the Classics. The set-text element of the examinations is a particular favourite and my method has never failed (?) to enthrall and excite. Unseen work is also very enjoyable.
I can give lessons to any person at any level, but I strongly prefer the students from 16 y.o. and on. We will try to make an trustful relationship by adaptating all the contents to the student's requirements. I am aware about the deductive techniques on Greek & Latin teaching (Aléxandros or Familia Romana, Hans Orberg) and I work with those books, you I can guide the student through them.
As a masters student, I am willing to provide tuition to all levels of education up to undergrad level. I myself am a visual learner and I reflect this in my teaching methods, where possible using images to help stimulate memory.
