About me

Hello! I’m Andrew, and I graduated in 2018 after spending four years studying Classics and Oriental Studies at St John's College, Oxford. 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.


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’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!

Questions Andrew has answered

How is the Latin future participle formed?

In Latin, the future participle literally means being about to X or on the point of doing X. It is active, and has the form:amaturus, amatura, amaturumThe best way of spotting the future participle is to look for the -ur- extension (just like English future).It is formed from the supine (4th principal part):amo, amare, amavi, amatum --> amaturus -a -ummoneo, monere, monui, monitum --> moniturus -a -umrego, regere, rexi, rectum --> recturus -a -umaudio, audire, audivi, auditum --> auditurus -a -umIn Latin, the future participle literally means being about to X or on the point of doing X.

How is αὐτος used in Greek?

The word αὐτος has three different meanings in Greek, depending on its case and the use of the definite article.1) When the word agrees with an article + noun but is not sandwiched, it means himself/herself/itself/themselves.ὁ βασιλευς αὐτος = The king himselfαὐτος ὁ πατηρ = The father himselfThe word also has this meaning when it appears on its own as a pronoun in the nominative:αὐτη ἐφυγεν = She herself fled.2) When the word agrees with an article + noun and is sandwiched, it means the same. This is always the meaning when a part of αὐτος comes immediately after the article.τους αὐτους δουλους εἰδεν = He saw the same slaves.3) When the word is used on its own as a pronoun and is not in the nominative, it means him/her/it/them. It is always third-person, and cannot come as the first word of a sentence or clause.ὁ στρατηγος αὐτην εἰδεν = The general saw her.ὁ ἀγγελος αὐτοις ἐπιστευεν = The messenger trusted them.The word αὐτος has three different meanings in Greek, depending on its case and the use of the definite article.1) When the word agrees with an article + noun but is not sandwiched, it means himself/herself/itself/themselves.ὁ βασιλευς αὐτος = The king himselfαὐτος ὁ πατηρ = The father himselfThe word also has this meaning when it appears on its own as a pronoun in the nominative:αὐτη ἐφυγεν = She herself fled.2) When the word agrees with an article + noun and is sandwiched, it means the same.
