Oxford Classics graduate offering classical languages, history, and university entrance tutoring online

Methodology

My aim when starting with a new student is to get to know as much about where they are in their studies and what they want out of our sessions.

Before our first lesson I'll have a free introductory consultation with them, ascertaining what their strengths and weaknesses are and also what their areas of interest are outside the syllabus. I'll use this last bit for preparing classes: e.g. if a student wants to learn about interesting ancient women then I can prepare a translation on Alexander the Great's mother Olympias or the Empress Messalina, covering what's on the syllabus in terms of grammar and vocab whilst also being more enjoyable than just another battle narrative!

I tend to set a short piece of homework after each session, and go through it with the student at the start of the next one. Each session will be centred around one particular topic, for language students typically a particular piece of grammar which the student struggles with. We'll then go through it, try it out on some sample passages, before doing a longer translation at the end.

One of the most important aspects of these lessons will be their relationship to what the student's covering in school. The tutoring sessions should supplement what the student is learning at school without infringing too much. My job is to leave the student best-prepared for their exams, so the best thing for me to do is to help them with anything which they didn't understand or struggled with in the lessons. Crucially this means creating new material related to but outside of the student's textbook, so that they're not repeating translations or exercises from tutoring sessions in class, or vice versa.

Experience

I graduated with a 1st from Balliol College, Oxford, with papers covering Ancient History and Latin and Greek Literature. I have a growing network of students who I help primarily with language tutoring and interview preparation. Outside of Classics, I love to play music and run, and am currently applying for Masters courses.
