Classics Tutors and Tuition
Classics Tutors in York, Harrogate and Surrounding Areas
We have specialist. Classics teachers for Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation. It is generally difficult to meet with sufficiently experienced teachers in these three areas, but we do have those experienced people. Entrance exams at different ages for most notable private schools have Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation as part of their entrance tests.
Most private schools study these areas , giving the chance to take them at IGCSE , GCSE and then A Level. Joining a similar school without a good background can be difficult , so we often help students with their initial work and foster encouragement and enjoyment , helping them get on well at school. There are big advantages to classics like Latin , as it helps students understand their own and other languages much better.
State schools have started to introduce Latin, Classic Civilization and Greek as extra subjects for GCSE within schools. It is a new trend, but one which very much looks to remain, perhaps harking back to the days of grammar school education in England and Wales. Classical texts for study and an in depth study of ancient history are parts of the exciting syllabus.
