Degree: Classics (Bachelors) - Oxford, Somerville College University
My name is Natalie Milner, and I am currently studying Classics at Somerville College, Oxford University. This is a demanding degree, requiring a thorough knowledge of the inner-workings of the Latin and Ancient Greek language, and as a result I believe that I am capable of tutoring both of these subjects to a high level.
I am an experienced tutor, having been involved in tutoring programmes for the past four years, during which I have covered a vast range of subjects from geography to maths. I have also had experience with students working towards passing various entrance and end-of-term exams, and have achieved some excellent results for my tutees.
Furthermore, I believe that my enthusiasm for the ancient languages can be seen through both my choice of degree, and my personal exam results in such subjects at GCSE and A-Level (Latin GCSE - A*, Latin A-Level - A*, Greek GCSE - A*, Greek A-Level - A). I have a strong passion to pass on this enthusiasm for these subjects, and will make my lessons both interactive and engaging, using extracts from ancient texts and archaeological material, whilst maintaining a strong focus on the grammatical aspects of these languages, as these tend to be the aspects which students find most difficult.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

The primary use and translation of the genitive case is of a possessive nature. Therefore, in the example sentence of 'Caecilius went into the garden of Metella', Metella would be in the genitive case. There are further uses of the genitive case, for example, the Partitive Genitive, which denotes that the object described is only a section of a larger whole. The Genitive of Description/Measure is less frequently used, amd describes a person or a thing by indicating a distinctive quality: 'vir magni ingeni' - a very talented man.see more
The Optative mood is mainly used as a way of expressing wishes, to express potentiality and to replace moods in dependent clauses which are governed by past-tense main verbs. Translations of the volative optative (optative of wish) include "If only.." or "Would that..". The potential optative expresses a future possiblity, and includes the translation of 'would', for example, "I would be delighted to accept yor gift."see more
