I am an advocate of teaching in a way that best suits the individual student. This may be experiential, student directed, teacher directed- but I believe the best approach to learning is a combination of all these approaches to keep it interesting and engaging.
I completed a Bachelor of Arts Languages (Honours for French) at the University of Sydney. I then completed a Masters in Teaching at UNE (French and HSIE) which was delivered all online. I started learning Latin in
secondary school and gained top bands in Continuers and extension Latin in Year 12. I have been working as a teacher for 6 years full time teaching Latin and French. I have been tutoring online for 2 years and I think it's so valuable to receive one on one support and feedback from the comfort of your own home at a time that is convenient for you.

Perfect! My son really enjoyed the lesson
Perfect! I got my daughter to start studying with Harriet when she was about to give up on Latin. Harriet sparked curiosity in my daughter, and made sure that she understood everything that was being taught. She ran through everything from start to end, making sure that my daughter was all good with the subject. I would strongly recommend anyone looking for a tutor to turn to Harriet.
Dilki's daughter is an enthusiastic learner and always willing to give her full attention and participates well in our sessions. Her skills in Latin are already improving after two sessions!
Harriet has a strong ability to relate and connect with her students. She has a very wide knowledge of languages especially Latin and French. She has a strong work ethic and dedication to getting the best possible outcomes for her students. I would highly recommend Harriet for tutoring.
Having worked with Harriet for a number of years, I got to witness her capacity to build an excellent rapport with her students and give them confidence in especially challenging subject matter. Harriet is adept at Stage 6 pedagogy, and has demonstrated herself as an expert in Languages course content. Harriet arrived at our school at a moment of great transition, and quickly proved to be an agile, collaborative and resilient member of the team. I would confidently recommend Harriet for any teaching position in her KLA.
I’ve known Harriet for many years and we lived together while studying at both the University of Sydney and Sciences Po University in Paris. I’ve always admired Harriet’s super strong French skills and her natural ability to teach others. Harriet is such a warm, down to earth, reliable and hardworking person, and I am so happy that she has found her passion as a languages teacher.
