Degree: Classics (Bachelors) - Cambridge University
Hi, I'm Hebe and I'm a recent Classics graduate. I studied at Downing College, Cambridge and while I was there I chose to specialise in Ancient Greek philosophy (particularly Plato) and Latin literature - I did a whole paper on Ovid's Metamorphoses. In my final year, I also chose to pick up Modern Greek - which is indicative of my love of learning languages! I studied French, German and Latin at school and picked up Ancient and Modern Greek at university, and since leaving I've even learnt a bit of Khmer, when I was teaching English in Cambodia over my gap year. I think I can genuinely say I have a passion for learning languages, and for picking apart the ways they form their tenses, voices and moods, and learning how to conjugate verbs. I hope I can not only help simplify the languages but also pass on my enthusiasm for their logic and beauty to any of the pupils I tutor! And make you that little bit more excited about learning Latin or Ancient Greek :)
I also absolutely loved learning Maths at school and had a lot of experience helping my friends with homework questions and OCR past papers during Sixth form. I studied Maths and Further Maths at A-level, and would be happy to tutor for GCSE and AS now!
I hope my sessions will be lots of fun, but also productive. I am patient and encouraging, and often ask my students concept checking questions to make sure the new point has been properly understood. I can adapt my pace to the ability of the student and am happy to take advice about the content and style that best suits each individual. My 18 year old sister recieved tutoring before taking her AS and A levels, so I understand the role it plays when building confidence and clarifying concepts during the revision period.
