About me

Hello - I’m Andrew, and I graduated in 2018 from St John's College, Oxford with a Double First in Classics and Oriental Studies. I hugely benefitted from high-quality language teaching at university, and really enjoy passing on some of what I learnt.

Hello - I’m Andrew, and I graduated in 2018 from St John's College, Oxford with a Double First in Classics and Oriental Studies. I hugely benefitted from high-quality language teaching at university, and really enjoy passing on some of what I learnt. One of the best things about Classics is the opportunity for detailed study of brilliant texts in their original languages. But having started Greek (and Ancient Hebrew) at university, I also understand that learning an ancient language and beginning to read ancient literature can be challenging.


Since graduating I have taught a number of students, from pre-GCSE to Master's level, and have received very positive feedback (see below). My students' examination results have been excellent.


I’d like to help anyone studying Greek or Latin, and in the tutorials we can cover whatever the student is finding tricky – unseen translations, set texts, literature essays, grammar or syntax.


If you have any questions, please send me a message, or suggest a time for a Free Video Meeting. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to meeting you.

About my sessions

I hope that tutorials will be enjoyable, engaging and useful, and I’ll always seek to ensure that the student has a secure understanding of topics discussed. Studying ancient literature can be difficult, so I'll use a details-oriented approach that will help build a firm foundation for independent text reading.


I also think it’s important for the student to know how to learn and revise aspects of language, and so I’ll endeavour to recommend resources and methods that I’...

I hope that tutorials will be enjoyable, engaging and useful, and I’ll always seek to ensure that the student has a secure understanding of topics discussed. Studying ancient literature can be difficult, so I'll use a details-oriented approach that will help build a firm foundation for independent text reading.


I also think it’s important for the student to know how to learn and revise aspects of language, and so I’ll endeavour to recommend resources and methods that I’ve used myself. I have studied three ancient languages while at university (Latin, Greek, Hebrew), and so I've picked up skills for language study which I'd love to pass on.


Most of all, I hope to inspire students with enthusiasm for Classics!

I was very much struggling with my Latin studies. Last week, I received my GCSE results and obtained a 7 in Latin, unthinkable without Andrew’s help. So clearly would very much recommend.
