Hi, I'm Sasha! I've been teaching Classics (Latin, Greek, Classical Civilisation, Ancient History) for 6 years. I've taught ages 11-18 at school, and have been tutoring since I left school in 2015.
I really care about helping others understand what can be a difficult and complex set of subjects, mostly because I know the joy and satisfaction of getting to grips with them. Whether you're starting out from scratch, getting back into it, or preparing for an exam, I can help you improve your understanding and accuracy of the languages and culture of the ancient world.
I am currently tutoring online outside of school time, but have more availability in school holidays. I am happy to recommend textbooks and other resources, but will not require you to buy anything extra. Please feel free to get in contact, as I am always looking to take on new clients.
I tutor Latin, ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation to all levels, either as a complete syllabus or a support to schoolwork.
I moved to the UK from the USA after completing a Masters degree and www.*** in Classical Philology at Harvard University. My first teaching jobs in the UK were at Winchester College and Westminster School, where I taught GCSE and A-level classes in Greek and Latin.
I have published numerous articles and books on Greek literature while working as a lecturer at the University of Bristol (2007-2011) and Corpus Christi College, Oxford (2011-2016). After the birth of my third child, I stopped lecturing and took a job locally as teacher of Greek and Latin at Pilgrims' Prep School in www.*** ;
At the University of Bristol, I taught undergraduates and post graduates, many of whom were Adult learners.
The diversity of my work experience has allowed me to teach from many different textbooks for beginners and intermediates and all of the popular text prescriptions for exams.
I also offer support for university applications to UK and USA universities. I give alumni interviews for Harvard applicants in the Winchester www.*** ;I am very skilled in online instruction, but I don't have a Facebook page or personal website. For my publications and academic work, I use my birth name (Hitch), many of which can be found on Google or Amazon.
With seven years' experience of teaching and tutoring Classics in a variety of contexts, I am a kind and knowledgeable tutor, who sets high standards of her tutees. I tailor my tuition to each individual person's needs and interests, making learning interesting, challenging and fun.
I have a Classics degree from Oxford University and a PGCE from Nottingham University. I have been teaching for over 25 years.

I have been teaching Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation at a secondary school for the last four years. Prior to this, I tutored primary age children in multiple subjects, including Latin, Ancient Greek and Mathematics. I also tutor Mathematics up to GCSE level and have helped many pupils with different learning styles to understand many different concepts.
I believe in teaching in an enjoyable and memorable manner, but one which also keeps the information fresh in the pupil's memory. A range of teaching styles means that I can adapt to a preferred way of learning. I have completed my PGCE and NQT and therefore am a fully qualified teacher. I would be happy to discuss exactly what would be wanted out of lessons before beginning them, as well as offering the first lesson for www.*** ;
