About me

I am a penultimate year student, studying Classics at Trinity College, Oxford.

I teach Greek and Latin at GSCE, AS and A Level. I received 100 percent in both Greek and Latin A Level, A* at AS Level and A at A Level. At university, I have received numerous academic prizes (3) for my collection results, and attained a top 10 mark in my Moderations Exams in Hilary 2018, achieving an average of 72. Furthermore, I won the Cyril Bailley Classics Prize at school and the Headmasters Prize for...

I am a penultimate year student, studying Classics at Trinity College, Oxford.

I teach Greek and Latin at GSCE, AS and A Level. I received 100 percent in both Greek and Latin A Level, A* at AS Level and A at A Level. At university, I have received numerous academic prizes (3) for my collection results, and attained a top 10 mark in my Moderations Exams in Hilary 2018, achieving an average of 72. Furthermore, I won the Cyril Bailley Classics Prize at school and the Headmasters Prize for Classics, for my contribution to Classics, and am a Scholar at Trinity.

I study Greek and Latin Historical Linguistics, giving me the necessary grounding in both languages, in terms of grammar, vocabulary and syntax. This allows me not only to help my tutees, but explain to them through the theory of the language enabling them to fully grasp the nuances of the language.

I am proud to have founded the Russian Club for St Paul’s Juniors, creating informative and engaging lessons for children aged 7-13. The range of the students’ ages and the inherent difficulty of Russian, with the demanding novelty of the Cyrillic alphabet, meant I often had to tailor assignments for individual students. This was a challenging but rewarding experience, but this initiative has substantially increased the uptake for Russian GCSE at St Paul’s.

About my sessions

To illustrate this, let me give you an example of a student whom I taught.


A particular student, Kia, was at a C level when I first started tutoring her, and I made it my goal to help her reach her target of an A.


The strategy that I undertook was multidisciplinary and targeted. I sought to combat her struggle with vocabulary assimilation with a technology-driven approach, using Memrise and other online applications, whilst I achieved confirmation of gram...

A particular student, Kia, was at a C level when I first started tutoring her, and I made it my goal to help her reach her target of an A.


The strategy that I undertook was multidisciplinary and targeted. I sought to combat her struggle with vocabulary assimilation with a technology-driven approach, using Memrise and other online applications, whilst I achieved confirmation of grammar through discipline and regular testing. Furthermore, I separated off a ten-minute section of each class to engage in discussions about Classics in general and its relevance to the modern world, in terms of art, culture and beyond. I considered this to be especially important as it was essential to develop enthusiasm for a subject, with the rest following naturally from that momentum.


Ultimately, I was proud to see Kia not only reach her goal but surpass it, achieving an A* in both Greek and Latin. Throughout this process, I learnt the importance of building relationships with people, anticipating and reacting to their needs and delivering tailored solutions.
