Tutor Details

Brian d'Arcy

Brian d'Arcy

After graduating in Classics from Oxford University (where I was awarded an academic scholarship), I began my career teaching Classics (GCSE and A-Level) at Winchester College in 2001.

After completing a PGCE in Classics at Cambridge University, I taught Classics and Modern History (GCSE and A-Level) at Ampleforth College. I moved to Whitgift School where I taught Classics (GCSE and A-Level). During this time, I held the position of Assistant Head of Sixth Form, where I offered guidance to students on study skills, UCAS personal statements and university interview technique. .

A I have taught Classics at Forest School in London, and, most recently, at Eltham College in London (GCSE and A-Level) in 2015-2017, where I was also Head of Upper Sixth/Lower Sixth. In the latter role, amongst other duties, I was in charge of the UCAS process, offering guidance to students on UCAS applications, personal statements, applying to Oxbridge and interview technique.

I am a highly experienced private tutor and teacher of Classics with a proven track record of delivering high quality Latin and Greek teaching. Over 90% of the students with whom I have worked have achieved the highest grade available to them.
