Inspiring students to excellence in 16+ Classical Civilisation

16+ Entrance Classical Civilisation Tutor

A 16+ Entrance Classical Civilisation tutor is a great resource for students who need to develop their knowledge in key areas of this  examination: literature, language and the history of ancient societies.

A tutor will ensure students have a specific focus on exam preparation and technique and how best to present their understanding of the material within that context.

16+ Entrance Classical Civilisation tuition will build confidence and enthusiasm towards this engaging subject. Students will be equipped with an all round awareness and understanding of the topics.

Tuition will provide the student with a firm grasp of classical texts, while aiming to cultivate a wider interest in the Greek and Roman worlds.

16+ Entrance Tuition

16+ entrance exams are set by independent schools to assess a student’s level and suitability for entry into Year 12.

They usually take place in the autumn of the school year prior to entry.

Prospective students will sit exams in all of the A Levels they wish to take at a higher level.

As the exams are written in-house by each school, there is no standardised process for the 16+, but the papers are usually based on the GCSE syllabi with the aim to challenge students with some unfamiliar questions.


Most of our tutors are based in London and tutor students on an hourly basis, travelling from one family home to another.

The minimum lesson length is an hour and the tutor may request travel expenses depending where you live and where they are travelling from.

Popular lesson slots are after school, between 4.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m., and at the weekends. If a child is out of school, the lessons can take place during the day.

Out of London

We can arrange a tutor to travel to your home if you live outside of London.

In order to make this viable for the tutor, the minimum lesson time is 2 hours (but you can book 3 or more hours).

If you live further afield, a day of tuition where 4 hours are broken up by lunch is a very popular option. This arrangement often happens at the weekends and during half-terms and holidays.

We ask that you cover the cost of the tutor’s travel time as well as their travel costs.


If you live abroad, or are embarking on a period of extended travel, you may request a residential tutor to support your children.

This can be for a period of anything from a few weeks to a year – or even longer.

The residential tutor normally works Monday to Friday. Tuition is either worked around school hours or arranged according to the family’s schedule if the child is not attending school.

The curriculum can either mirror what the child would be doing at school or be tailor-made to the student (whether following a traditional curriculum, or allowing greater freedom in what is taught such as project-based learning).


If your location means it is tricky for you to meet a tutor face-to-face, we can arrange tuition online.

Tutors on our books are teaching students all over the world: from France and Italy, to the US and Russia. We are experts at handling lesson arrangements over different time zones.

We are satisfied that even if students can’t meet tutors in person, they can still benefit from the knowledge and energy tutors bring to their online lessons.

Online tuition is conducted via Skype with a selection of other screen and material-sharing software. This ensures that lessons are fully interactive and that students gain the maximum from the sessions.
