Waht is Classical Civilisation?

Students do not need experience of either the Latin or Ancient Greek languages, as all of the texts are studied in English translation; all a student needs is an interest in mythology, the ancient world and its cultures. Classical Civilisation involves interesting discussions that are directly relevant to today's world with topics covered including: women in the ancient world; religious beliefs; ancient acts of intolerance.

GCSE Classical Civilisation Tuition

GCSE Classical Civilisation provides students with a broad, coherent and rewarding study of the literature and culture of the classical (Greco-Roman) world drawn from the time period 3000 BCE to 500 CE. GCSE students study elements of literature and the visual and material culture of Greece and Rome and develop an understanding of their social, historical and cultural contexts.

The major topics studied at GCSE level are: (1) Myth and Religion - the study of the roles, symbols and depictions of the Greek and Roman gods, their festivals and temples, mythology and ancient beliefs in the Underworld. (2) The Homeric World - focusing on Homer's Odyssey, including an analysis of the characters and plots, as well as the themes of fate, revenge and justice. It also includes a study of real life in the Mycenean age, through various sites and artefacts.

A-Level Classical Civilisation Tuition

A-Level Classical Civilisation includes the study of myths, literature, history, politics, art and architecture, philosophy and the way people lived in Greece and Rome. The A-Level topics are: (1) Society: relationships within the household, between the household and the wider community and between different communities. (2) Myths: heroes, villains, monsters. (3) Religion: portrayal of gods, attitudes to gods and the role of religion. (4) Values: concepts of heroism, honour, duty, virtue, justice and the good life. (5) Politics and leadership: bases of power, attitudes to those in power, accountability of those in power, processes for making decisions and resolving disputes, plus attitudes to war and peace. (6) History: a study of specific periods of Greek and Roman History.

If you are looking to apply to university, Classical Civilisation can be extremely useful. You not only acquire specific Classical knowledge, but also important transferable skills such as analysing sources and developing independent, critical and evaluative approaches. You learn to formulate and support an argument and develop a valuable understanding of cultures very different to your own.

The cost of a Classical Civilisation tutor in Dorking can vary depending on several factors, such as qualifications, experience, and whether Face-to-Face or Online. Private Classical Civilisation tutors in Dorking may cost anywhere from £15 to £60 per hour. A qualified teacher in Dorking from Teachers To Your Home, will range from £17.50 per hour for online group tuition, to £50 for Face-to-Face A Level Classical Civilisation Tuition in Dorking.

Face-to-face tuition in Dorking allows for direct interaction and personalized attention from the Classical Civilisation tutor. It provides a more structured learning environment and can help students stay more motivated and focused. On the other hand, online tuition offers more flexibility in terms of scheduling and location. Students can access Classical Civilisation tutoring from anywhere and online sessions can be recorded for future reference. Online tuition also tends to be more affordable and can offer a wider range of Classical Civilisation tutors and subjects. Ultimately, the best choice depends on the individual student's needs and preferences. Younger or SEN students may benefit more from face-to-face tuition, while older students may prefer the convenience and flexibility of online tuition.

Group Classical Civilisation tutoring provides a supportive environment where students can work together, learn from one another and engage in collaborative problem-solving. It provides students with a variety of perspectives and ideas, which can lead to a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Being in a group allows students to work together, communicate effectively, and develop teamwork skills. Group Classical Civilisation tutoring is often less expensive than one-on-one Classical Civilisation tutoring, making it more accessible for students who need extra help.

Not every child in Dorking needs a Classical Civilisation tutor, but there are many scenarios where tuition will be beneficial. The obvious is if a child is not attending school for whatever reason. If they are at school, a Classical Civilisation tutor may be needed to stop a student from falling behind, which can lead to disillusionment and behavioural issues; or to get back on track after a poor end-of-year exam result. If a specific learning difficulty or Special Educational Need (SEN) is identified, then Classical Civilisation Tuition in Dorking can provide a vital reinforcement. For high stakes exams, such as 11+, Common Entrance (often 13+) for schools in Dorking, GCSE and A-Level or IB, tuition can provide that final boost to get over the line, the stretch to reach the top grades required for the next stage of education, or assistance with specific exam techniques that may not be taught at school.
