Miss Shirin Borthwick

Sydney - Annandale

Miss Shirin Borthwick Sydney Tutor in English, Essay Writing, Latin

My pedagogical practice combines fun with a high level of rigour. I have completed three international research degrees focusing on languages and literature, and have worked in the private school system as a passionate educator for four years. I've also volunteered at Summer camps and really enjoy fostering a playful rapport with my charges.

As a teacher I am aware of the intense pressure on NSW students to perform at a high level. To this end I can offer tailored coaching and straightforward inroads into the Latin Syllabus at all levels. I have an extensive library of textbook resources and exercises which I have tested out in the classroom, and can find a method that works for the individual learner.

Latin is a highly rewarding subject provided the student can take extra time to understand the murkier grammar points. The experience of persevering through challenges to a state of mastery is valuable in itself, and I'm keen to pass on my knowledge of this process to other lovers of language and literature.
