I was a student myself not so long ago and even more recently than that I got some experience as a classroom Latin teacher in a Cambridge school. I have always loved languages and I know that to speak them properly you need to understand the nuts and bolts. Writing and translating are fundamentally creative endeavours, as is singing which I have experience in too. I'm here to give you the tools you need to create!

For 9 months last year I was a private tutor to two young girls in Moscow. I taught them everything from History to Biology. This was a hugely rewarding experience not least because I had to get to grips with the fact that what they did know they knew in a different language so a large part of the challenge was bridging the gap between the knowledge as it stood in Russian and as it had to be in English. The elder of the two kids ended up getting a place at a prestigious English private school. I've also tutored English and Latin to various pupils around London.
