Classics Graduate (First Class Honours, University of Durham) offering classes in Classics, English Literature and History

Methodology

I am able to tutor in degree level Classics and dissertation coaching, and can give help to A-Level and GCSE students in the subjects of Classics, English Literature, History and Geography. For me learning is most effective when you implement a structured way of working therefore my method would be, whilst obviously helping with specific problem areas, would be to suggest new ways of structuring your learning outside of tutoring sessions, for example taking half an hour in the evenings to make flash cards or creating a quiz to do at the end of the week based on what we have covered in tutoring sessions. I also believe in creating a friendly relationship with students as this creates a much easier and more effective learning environment.

Experience

I have a first class honours Classics degree from the University of Durham, and I have A levels in Classics, History and Geography and an AS in English Literature. I also won an award for the best dissertation in my year for Classics so would be able to offer some assistance in planning and writing a good dissertation or even an EPQ (I received an A* for mine). I have some previous experience as an academic mentor for younger students when I was at school, working with GCSE level students.
