About me

Hello!

My name is Mabel, and I'm a student at the University of Oxford and I study Classics. In my degree I specialise in studying  Latin, and also study Ancient Greek. I have a thorough grasp of both languages (Latin A Level A*, Latin GCSE A*, Greek GCSE A*), and so I'm very confident and excited to help you. 

Futhermore, I am also qualified to tutor in English and History to a very high standard, and I can help you with entrance exam tests (such as the CAT) or even Oxbridge interviews themselves!

I'm happy to help you with whatever you feel you're finding hard, whether that's some difficult grammar, reading through texts, thinking about essays, prose composition or anything else, in the syllabus or not.

My main aim is to help you become really great at your subject, and also to enjoy it - I love my degree and it's so fun to share enthusiasm with my students. I have a younger sister who I helped coach through her GCSE's, and I also have consistently helped two boys through their secondary school tests.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

Questions Mabel has answered

How do you translate an ablative absolute?

So ablative absolutes can seem scary because they sit there apart from the rest of the sentence, but they're actually super easy! Translating them isn't difficult at all.

They can be translated in 3 different ways - either with a temporal sense (so giving an idea of the time), causal (explaining a reason why something is the way it is) or concessive (a clause showing a concession). 

Temporal ablative absolutes are translated with words like "when", "after" or "once".

Causal ones are translated by words like "because", or "since".

And concessive ones with "although" or "though".

You should choose whatever translation you think fits best, whether it's temporal/causal/concessive. Try them all out and see what sounds best!
