Information about Jake
I am an energetic and enthusiastic tutor, with good experience. Given the current global situation, this is a key time to focus on education. It is vital that learning for children remains stimulating & exciting, and this is a great opportunity to explore the curriculum in greater detail to prepare for a return to school. Tese two elements will remain at the forefront of all my lessons. I have also reduced my prices as a result of the current pandemic to make education affordable for all. I study French and Classical Greek at Cambridge University. At first this seems like a strange combination, but in truth I just couldn`t bare giving either one of them up when I left school. I`ve really enjoyed the different challenges of both the modern and classical language this year. I have had previous teaching and tutoring experience providing one-to-one classes for GCSE students at a secondary school in London. I really enjoyed the challenge of teaching, the intimacy of teaching one-on-one and seeing the students progress and develop. I was also fortunate to attend a school which had great experience in Oxbridge applications and general exam technique, and can provide useful insights to my students in this regard.
Availability: I can be completely flexible, and fit around your schedule.
Willing to travel: 8 miles
Experience: I have good experience tutoring Maths, French, Latin and Ancient Greek at GCSE and 13+ plus level. I have really enjoyed enjoyed seeing the students learn and improve in the lessons, and find this really rewarding. With my support and guidance, my students have won academic scholarships to 6th form and secondary schools, and achieved fantastic marks in their GCSEs.

Feedback For Jake (6)
Fantastic tutor. My sons Latin has improved because of Jakes lessons. I will recommend him.
Jake has been given Latin lessons to my son, entering year 10. He is a great teacher and I strongly recommend him.
Jake understood what was needed for the preparation of exam immediately. It was great to have his help.
Well prepared and very knowledge and always on time. I strongly recommend
A brilliant tutor for our son! Punctual, kind, polite. Jake is really helping our son gain confidence and our son is progressing rapidly with latin under Jakes tuition.
Jake is really reliable and personable, my 14 yr old son really likes him and his teaching style. My son has told me he learns more in an hour with Jake than weeks of French lessons at school. Would highly recommend.
