About me

My name is Philippa and I am studying Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Oxford. I am obsessed with my subject and I want to help students studying Classical Civilisation because this was the A-Level that ignited by love for the ancient world and resulted in my current degree. I absolutely love my degree and tutoring will help me to share my passion and continue to engage in the subject during my time away from university.


I want to tutor others...

My name is Philippa and I am studying Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Oxford. I am obsessed with my subject and I want to help students studying Classical Civilisation because this was the A-Level that ignited by love for the ancient world and resulted in my current degree. I absolutely love my degree and tutoring will help me to share my passion and continue to engage in the subject during my time away from university.


I want to tutor others because I was unwell during my A-Levels and mostly had to teach myself. I therefore understand how it feels to struggle but having to learn independently led to a deep understanding of the A-Level material and the ability to explain it simply and in a way that enables memorisation.


English Literature is a key component of my degree through the close analytical study of texts and I love engaging with and teaching English Literature and Language. I really enjoy both poetry and prose and teaching good exam technique and skills.


Although Maths is not part of my degree the subject itself is really important to me. I went from really struggling with the subject to absolutely loving it and studying it at A-Level. I love to help others build their confidence and exam technique just as I did and I want to share my passion for Maths and help others to succeed.

About my sessions

I will structure my online lessons according to student needs. We can work through the syllabus chronologically and we will cover the necessary information needed to answer exam questions but we can also tackle challenging modules and questions as necessary and can restructure to suit the student's needs.
