"I’m not sure if you remember my son but you tutored him in Latin & Greek for the St Pauls & Westminster scholarship exams last year. I think I told you that he was offered places at both schools and chose St Paul’s. I just wanted to let you know that he’s doing incredibly well in both subjects and recently came top of the year in recent Latin exams and third in Greek. He’s chosen to take both subjects for GCSE and is really enjoying it. Your tutoring made such a difference to his ability, confidence and enjoyment in these subjects so I just wanted to thank you again."Mother of Classical Greek student
"Keren has been teaching my daughter Classics and she has been wonderfully inspiring. We are really pleased!"Mother of year 11 student

We can arrange Classical Greek tuition tailored to specific exams, from GCSE Classical Greek, to IB Classical Greek, and A Level Classical Greek. We help to improve exam performance by making use of past Classical Greek papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of Classical Greek to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
GCSE Classical Greek students will need a solid grounding in the language itself, as well as on Classical Greek poetry, prose, and culture. The Classical Greek tutors we represent will help your child develop a fluent knowledge of the language, and maximise their ability to translate Classical Greek across a range of different authors. We aim to build up your child’s confidence, speed, and accuracy under pressure in Classical Greek, equipping them to excel at GCSE and IGCSE level.
IB Classical Greek is a challenging qualification, covering authors like Homer, Herodotus, Sophocles, and Euripides. Our Classical Greek tutors will help your child to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, develop their linguistic skills, and communicate their knowledge successfully in an exam context.
A Level Classical Greek is a well-respected subject and students have to master a wide range of complex grammar and vocabulary to succeed. Our Classical Greek tutors are able to focus in on those areas where your child needs additional support, help them to translate at a high level under time pressure, and ultimately prepare them to perform strongly in these key exams.
The tutors we represent are able to deliver in-person tuition within central London. For those outside of central London we offer online tutoring.
The tutors we represent are well versed in delivering online tuition, using videoconferencing and an interactive whiteboard. This gives students, wherever they are in the world, access to experienced, high quality tutors who are familiar with the requirements of Classical Greek, whatever your subject level.
