The OCR Specification is ambitous and vast in its scope. It covers the history of the Ancient World from the dawn of Greece to the barbarian invasions. It covers Greek and Roman literature, relationships between the sexes, and war and tyranny and natural catastrophes, and much more beside.
We specialise in all elements of this Specification. Our tutors are A-Level examiners for the OCR Board. They have degrees in Classics and a record of publication.
Our general approach is to teach via examination practice. Most schools do a good job of teaching the subject. Of course, where this has, for any reason, not been successful, we can help. But we see our main value as supplementing what is taught in the classroom. What we offer is a set of strategies for translating a knowledge of the subject into a decent pass at A-Level. This involves a close one-to-one focus on past examination papers and the associated mark schemes. We teach students how to read and understand the questions, and how to structure answers in a way that shows this understanding to its best effect.
Students visit us at our premises in Deal – see below for details. Alternatively, we provide tuition via Skype. Please contact us to discuss details.
Our standard price for A-Level Classical Civilisation is £30 per hour. Skype tuition is paid most easily via PayPal or bank transfer. For face-to-face tuition, payment details can be settled by discussion.
First lesson is always free.
We offer a sliding discount for advance booking of hours.
