About me

Hi! My name's Laurence, and I'm a recent graduate from the University of Oxford with a degree in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History (CAAH). I'm now an actor, and have appeared on Film, Television and Stage. I chose CAAH for a university subject because I have always been fascinated by the Ancient World, both from a distance and at a more hands-on level. Oxford helped me grow in confidence enormously over 3 years, and gave me a sense of complete educational independence whic...

Hi! My name's Laurence, and I'm a recent graduate from the University of Oxford with a degree in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History (CAAH). I'm now an actor, and have appeared on Film, Television and Stage. I chose CAAH for a university subject because I have always been fascinated by the Ancient World, both from a distance and at a more hands-on level. Oxford helped me grow in confidence enormously over 3 years, and gave me a sense of complete educational independence which I did not possess at school. Learning to think for myself, and the ability to problem solve without too much reliance on a tutor, is a skill which I hope my students will gain as we learn together. Above all, I'm excited to learn as much from my students as they do from me - tutorials should be, in my opinion, an ongoing dialogue between student and teacher, where ideas can be shared and discussed in a safe, nurturing environment.

About my sessions

For Oxbridge preparation, I teach largely anecdotally. Given the worries and stresses these interviews can cause in students (and caused in me at the time), I believe wholeheartedly that the best way to allay these fears is to hear stories of how good the interview experience can be. I intend to stress the fact that the tutors are not there to trip you up, and that they want you to succeed. With this in mind, I will also use the interactive learning space to provide the student with some exam...

For Oxbridge preparation, I teach largely anecdotally. Given the worries and stresses these interviews can cause in students (and caused in me at the time), I believe wholeheartedly that the best way to allay these fears is to hear stories of how good the interview experience can be. I intend to stress the fact that the tutors are not there to trip you up, and that they want you to succeed. With this in mind, I will also use the interactive learning space to provide the student with some examples of interview stimuli that they might encounter. Examples include archaeological maps, extracts from texts, plays poems etc.

For the A-Level tutorials, such as Class-Civ and Drama, I again intend to teach anecdotally, although the requirements here are obviously more rigid than Oxbridge preparation. I will use my expertise in Ancient Art-History to provide the students with examples Beyond the A-Level syllabus, not only for use in exams but also to cast a new/different light on the examples with which the might be more familiar.

I am also aware how stressful an experience Drama A-Level can be, particularly its practical aspect, and so I will utilise the ability to see my students face-to-face to help and aid them with this practical module.
