About me

Hi!  I’m Ed and I have just graduated with a BA Hons in Classics at Exeter University, where I also plan to complete an MA in the same discipline.  I offer both GCSE and A-level Latin and GCSE Greek.  When tutoring anyone, I wish to achieve 3 aims: 1. To improve my tutee’s grades 2. To enhance my tutee’s understanding of Latin and Greek and to develop their appreciation for Classical literature.  I want them to enjoy translating rather than see it as a chore! 3. To create an amicable tutor-tutee relationship so that tutorials are friendly and enjoyable for both parties. These aims have been demonstrated through my tutoring experience in teaching Latin students at GCSE/A-Level; both at a private and voluntary level. I look to teach in an informal but nevertheless professional and focused fashion so that I get the best out of my tutee.  Sessions will be predominantly guided by tutees: For example, if they are struggling with grammatical syntax or are unsure why a Classical author uses a certain linguistic technique, I am here to tackle the issue.  My high grades, my passion for Classics and my friendly approach to tuition illustrates my determination to make all my tutees successful.Hi!  I’m Ed and I have just graduated with a BA Hons in Classics at Exeter University, where I also plan to complete an MA in the same discipline.  I offer both GCSE and A-level Latin and GCSE Greek.  When tutoring anyone, I wish to achieve 3 aims: 1. To improve my tutee’s grades 2.

Questions Ed has answered

What are purpose and result clauses?

A purpose clause, as highlighted in the grammatical expression, explains why an action has taken place i.e why something happens.

e.g  The boy walked to the shop (in order) to get food.

puer ad tabernam ambulavit ut cibum reciperet

  In latin this is expressed with an ut +  subjunctive which is either in the present tense (primary sequence) or the imperfect tense (historic sequence).   For a negative purpose clause, ne + subjunctive is used instead of ut + subjunctive.

Occasionally qui is used instead of ut for a relative purpose clause.

 

A result clause explains the consequence/outcome of a certain action rather than why the action was performed in the first place.  Like with a purpose clause, a result clause also uses ut + subjunctive for a postive result, but ut... non + subjunctive for a negative result (rather than ne + subjunctive for a purpose clause).

e.g He died SO THAT he could save his father

mortuus est ut patrem servare posset

 Result clauses can often be distinguised from purpose clauses through both context and words such as tam, ita and tantus, -a, -um preceding the clause
