About the lesson

‘Honour the work, and the work will honour you.’

Our word education comes from the Latin educo, meaning ‘to draw out’. The teacher’s task is to draw out the latent powers of the student so that he can realize himself and shine his own light on whatever he studies.

My classes offer much more than simple instruction for exams or qualifications, though they do that too: rather, they are designed to inspire the student to make the subject his own. They are also intended to make teachers of students, and vice-versa. Either way, the ultimate goal is the same: mastery.

About Charles

I am an experienced tutor in Latin, Greek and English as well as an author and lecturer on literary and historical topics. I graduated with a first-class degree in Modern Languages from Hertford College, Oxford, where I founded the De Vere Society. I spent six years lecturing on Shakespeare in North America, becoming president of the Shakespeare Oxford Society (1995-7). Venues there included Harvard, Yale, M.I.T., the Smithsonian, the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. On my return to England I spent two years as literary assistant to the poet and philosopher Nicholas Hagger at Otley Hall in Suffolk.

I am co-founder of the Shakespeare Academy, a vice-president of the Royal Stuart Society, and was a trustee of the Shakespearean Authorship Trust for 25 years (1986-2011). In addition to lecturing at schools and colleges in the UK, I was on the Speakers’ Directory of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) for 10 years. My publications include Nell Gwyn: A Biography (Macmillan, 2005), Shakespeare’s Lost Kingdom (Grove, 2010) and Piano Man: A Life of John Ogdon (Simon & Schuster, 2014). I am at present writing a book on the psychology of Shakespeare entitled The Crown of Fire. In addition to my various writing projects, I am currently tutoring for Gwynne Teaching as well as taking on pupils under the banner of De Vere Tutors.
