WHAT I TEACH

Language tuition

I teach Latin and Ancient Greek to students of all levels, from beginners to undergraduates. Every student is different, and I tailor my teaching to the needs of each individual, giving them the support and encouragement they need to achieve their own ambitions.

13+/GCSE/16+/A Level/IB

I know the exam syllabuses inside out and teach my students beyond the requirements of the curriculum. I believe that the most important thing a tutor can do is ignite a genuine enthusiasm for their subject that will make their student want to learn more, helping them to develop into independent learners capable of flourishing on their own.

School and University Admissions

Previous students of mine have won places and scholarships at top public schools including Westminster and St Paul's. I have also worked for an Oxbridge Admissions consultancy and can offer practice interviews and guidance at every stage of the application process.

Testimonials

★★★★★

I have not seen my shy son quite so animated with Latin. Having been reluctant to have tutoring he is now asking me to book a whole bunch more lessons.

Ros

★★★★★

Latin ceased to be taxing and became the subject I found most interesting. This I directly attribute to Chris’ unique teaching style... If you want a tutor who will bring you up to speed in Greek or Latin while strengthening your abilities by providing context in history and philosophy alongside, Chris is your man!

Alex

★★★★★

Chris was an extremely diligent and considerate tutor, who tailored the program to my son’s needs. My son found him to be very approachable and could easily relate to Chris, which made learning all the more better.

Samir

★★★★★

Christopher’s guidance and advice was invaluable. I would never have been able to create a personal statement of such a high standard without his help. Christopher was professional, insightful and friendly, and I would highly recommend his tutoring services to anyone thinking of applying for universities or tutoring for any other subject.

Tori

★★★★★

Chris is an excellent tutor. He really challenges you with many unadapted texts, encouraging your interest in them with discussion of the text and additional exploration such as scansion... He has a kind and encouraging teaching style, and is always supportive.

Chris is truly inspiring. Latin was a weak subject for my son until he started weekly Skype lessons with Chris. It is now his strongest for Common Entrance and so thrilled is he with it that he definitely wants to do it for GCSEs. Chris is inspiring, patient and allows his pupils to aspire to be more than then feel they can be when they first meet him. He is charming, punctual and proficient.
