"Caroline is a wonderful teacher. She is approachable, very positive and passionate about Latin. She put my daughter at ease immediately and over the course of 6 weeks she went from knowing nothing to being able to happily translate passages, conjugate verbs and now has a real interest in the subject and genuinely enjoys learning the language. Thank you, Caroline!”
Mrs M., East Sussex.
During Caroline's career as Head of Classics she began after-school Greek lessons in small groups, which inspired her to set up her tuition business, providing one to one tuition in Latin and Greek. Caroline has now been tutoring for almost a decade and has helped many pupils achieve and exceed their goals - from ages 8 to 80!
Lessons can be booked in blocks or on a flexible basis and are usually for an hour, or an hour and a half. They can be arranged to fit in with tutees’ school timetables, with early morning and late afternoon availability in term time, and weekends and holidays enabling additional sessions.
Caroline is based in East Sussex and tutoring is also available in central London where Caroline’s pupils include Classics students (undergraduates and postgraduates), professionals, and individuals taking up Latin and Classical Greek in retirement.
Caroline also offers tutoring by Zoom which enables her to teach pupils from all over the world, from Burwash to Brussels and from Sevenoaks to Seattle. Pupils in Kent (including Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells) and Sussex (including Battle and Brighton) can enjoy a combination of online and face-to-face Latin and Greek tutoring, which suits their busy schedules of GCSEs, A' Levels and IB studies.
'Caroline's enthusiasm for the classics is infectious and stimulating. As an older person wishing to use early retirement in 2014 as an opportunity to correct a lack of application and pursuit of classical knowledge at school, I have been privileged to receive tuition from Caroline and the phrase “It's all Greek to me” now takes on a very different and exciting meaning.
Her high standards are blended with a patient and constructive approach to any shortcomings or weaknesses on my part, while at the same time praising strengths and encouraging me to strive to do better. This helps to build confidence, making the learning process both more effective and enjoyable. Caroline has made “better late than never” a very real option for me in learning the classics, which I have found extremely rewarding, both in terms of achievement and personal fulfilment.'

Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation
I cannot stress enough how much Caroline helped me with my studies of Latin. At the beginning of Year 7, I believed nothing could possibly make me like the subject. However, with the help of Caroline I started enjoying Latin more and more and looked forward to each session. Eventually I felt confident enough to choose it as a subject for my scholarship to Sevenoaks School, which I was awarded at the end of Year 8 thanks to Caroline's amazing support. Caroline's lessons have really been invaluable and I cannot thank her enough!
