I moved to the UK from the USA after completing a Masters degree and Ph.D 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 Winchester.
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 area. 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.
I am a highly experienced, flexible and very versatile tutor, with advanced degrees and teaching qualifications in business, finance, history, literature, art, classics, maths and sciences.

I have experience with exam prep (IB, CFA, CISI) as well as undergrad and postgrad courses in the subjects listed above. I can travel across London or even overseas for the right assignments. I believe I charge fairly for value provided, and promote an engaging, enjoyable teaching and learning style.

My language teaching is based on the way in which classical languages are taught at Oxford, and I believe in the development both of analytical language skills and an instinct for the art of translation. For GCSE and A-Level, it is important for vocabulary and grammar to be secure, so I encourage a rigorous approach to language, but one that is www.*** ask for a tutee to try their hardest - as long as they do, they will be met with an enthusiastic, patient, and understanding tutor, a tutor dedicated to his teaching and his pupil. It is vital to tailor sessions to the student, and I customise my lessons for each student I have based on their needs.
I have worked at Repton School in Derbyshire, Loretto in Musselburgh near Edinburgh, and Hymers College in Hull from which I have recently retired after 18 years as Head of Department. These are all established independent schools with nationally recognised reputations for high standards of education and attainment. In all three I have taught GCSE and A level Latin, some Classical Civilisation and Ancient History. Over the years I have marked papers for various boards. I am happy to tutor children/adults of all ages in Latin from level 1 through to GCSE and on to A level. I can teach the language, literature and civilisation elements of all current GCSE/A level Latin papers. I am happy to provide additional support for pupils already preparing for these examinations who feel that some extra work in particular areas would benefit them, or to teach them independently of any school/college. I am also keen to assist any adult learners interested in Latin for its own sake, who would like to make a start in the subject and see how they get on.

I have been teaching Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Civilisation at a secondary school for the last three 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 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 free.
