Tutor recommendation Edit

Several members of the HE-Exams group have used Peter McNeely as a tutor - he can do Skype tutorials.

“I am a Classics teacher with an MA in Latin.  I am working for OCR as an examiner, and as a private tutor from home (in Lode, near Cambridge).  I would be happy to supply tutoring or support for any Classical subject (Latin, Greek, Ancient History, Classical Civilisation) to pupils either individually, or as a small group.  If anyone would be interested, my email address is: “
