A little about me and my teaching

My name is Charlie, or rather Charlotte Farquharson-Roberts, and I love Latin! I gave up full time teaching when I had my first child back in 2011 and now I tutor Latin and Classical Civilisations to GCSE and A-Level (mainly). I am happy to take on students of all ages and abilities, however, so please do get in touch.


If you struggle with Cicero, sob over subjunctives or wonder why on earth you decided to keep up with Latin at all, then you are very welcome! I have taught in schools and tutored privately for over ten years now and have seen it all. I also have vivid memories of sobbing over stupid subjunctives. I understand what you are going through and I can help you to love Latin again.

Latin Extension

I have a Master’s in Medieval Latin (hymns by the Venerable Bede) so I would be delighted to spend time with students keen to explore avenues of Latin other than Classical. This would be appropriate for pupils before writing UCAS statements or similar.

Classical Civilisations

I have taught a range of A Level topics on both the OCR and AQA specs including Cicero, Homeric papers, Greek Tragedy and Virgil. I have taught a similar range of GCSE papers, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Contact and Stuff

All lessons are in my home, a Victorian terrace in the heart of Cambridge. I teach at my kitchen table and will even offer you a cup of tea, and perhaps a biscuit if my husband or small children haven’t eaten them all. Most lessons are on Saturday mornings, but I can also teach during the day on weekdays. Please get in touch to discuss availability.

I charge a very competitive £30 per hour for every subject and level. Please contact me on indigocharlie@hotmail.com or via this website for availability, further contact details and a chat about your requirements.

Contact me on indigocharlie@hotmail.com or leave a reply here on my blog site and I will get back to you. You can also tweet me @camlatintutor.

In the meantime, please have a read of my blog posts. I hope you enjoy them!
