Ana Martin: Philology BA (UB), CAP (ICE), UK QTS, and former Head of Classics with 20 years' teaching experience.
My name is Ana Martin, and I can help your student achieve a 7-9 for GCSE
and an A/A* for A Level so that they can access their first-choice university.
With my reading fluency method, students:
get immersed in the language
become independent learners
"get" the grammar and use the vocabulary effectively
develop a love for language learning
ace their results
Once you know the language well, no exam is too difficult.
I will help you develop literacy, linguistic awareness, and a deeper
understanding of literature.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Why learn Latin with a tutor?
If you need to boost results and confidence, I will work with you to draw the best plan and design effective strategies to achieve your goals. As former Head of Classics, I have not only taught hundreds of students but also trained new teachers to find the best way to deliver the curriculum. I know what works to learn a language and what is needed to achieve high grades in examinations, and I will show you the way to do both. Classics can become the door to your first career choice and, as importantly, it will change the way you think about the world and yourself!
Do you teach group lessons?
Yes. Please arrange a consultation to find out your level, check availability, and see which groups you might be able to join.
Will I need to travel for my lessons?
No. I am based in Richmond, London, where I also teach in person, but most of my work is virtual Latin tutoring. You can book my services anywhere in the world, from Brighton to Hong Kong. I am also an active Latin advocate on social media, and involved in a variety of networks, from Youtube to Instagram.
What are your qualifications?
I hold QTS valid in the United Kingdom and Spain, and have plenty of teaching experience in both countries, including as Head of Department (Latin and Classical Civilisation) at Northwood College for Girls GDST. I am currently a committee member of the ARLT and Website and Communications Officer.
Staying updated with the latest teaching methods is important for me, and I recently ahve trained in Dyslexia and Foreign Language Teaching and I am have a certificate as Reading Interventionist.
In addition, I have EOI certificates for German, French and English, as well as the ZOP from the Goethe Institut and a Català D certificate.
Safeguarding is one of my priorities. I have completed an NSPCC certificate in Child Protection for Tutors and you can find me on the DBS update service.
How will you make sure I achieve my goals?
After an initial consultation, I will help you with a personal plan that takes into account the following:
Learning Latin vocabulary and grammar starting from the languages you speak, either as a native or as an MFL
Your target grade and how to reach it in the time available
Your strengths and any learning difficulties
All my courses are dyslexia friendly, and I create free resources to suit the needs of the Latin learning student.
Can you teach in other languages?
I currently teach in English, Spanish and Catalan. I also speak German, French and Italian, and have an interest in comparative linguistics; many students find that this helps them greatly if they are also learning or are indeed speakers of any of those languages.
Why should I pay for a professional tutor?
I work as a tutor professionally and charge £80 per hour. I keep up to date with training and belong to the relevant professional bodies (TTA, QT, NEU).
Can you help with specific exams?
I teach the full Classics range, from 13+ to university entrance. This includes de following: Common Entrance, GCSE (OCR and EDUQAS), iGCSE, A Level, IB, MLAT, CLAT, CAT and Oxbridge application preparation.
