Testimonials

“Max was excellent and efficient, and has an authoritative understanding of Latin. He played a significant role in making my translations more accurate and simpler to read.”

Andrew, Classics Student

“Ash was an exceptional tutor, not only in terms of his grasp of the material, but also in his ability to connect with our son. I cannot recommend Ash highly enough. He was both encouraging and motivating for a young man who was dispirited at the prospect of taking on the SATs. It was an entirely positive experience. ”
