About me

I am a Classics student at St Andrews University. I am deeply interested in language and enjoy thoroughly explaining the 'ins and outs' of Latin and Ancient Greek. These are undeniably complex languages, so it is easy to feel overwhelmed by them. I have been through this process, and am able to help a budding Classicist overcome these challenges bit by bit.

I studied Maths at A-Level and maintain an enthusiasm for the subject. Nothing quite beats the satisfaction of solving a particularly difficult equation. I hope that by the end of a Maths session you will experience a similar satisfaction as questions open up before your newfound Maths knowledge!

I also recently received this thank-you email from a tutee on another site:

Dear Jake,

I'm sure you have already heard from my mother about my GCSE results. But I wanted to thank you personally for the help you gave me, as I feel the past paper practices we did made a real impact on my results. I went from predicted B and C grades to A and A*s in humanities, and I doubt that it would've happened without your help. Also, thanks for your help with sciences where I got A*s except for the A in Physics, but I don't hold you responsible for that :)

With my sincere appreciation, many thanks.

Questions Jake has answered

How can I remember all the endings?

It is true that there are a lot of endings for every type of word in Greek. There are many ways to learn them, depending on the person. For example, you could try writing a whole table without looking at the textbook, then checking for mistakes and correcting them. If you prefer a more active exercise, try translating an unseen and analyse the ending of each word. Whatever you do, do not simply stare at the tables and hope to memorise them - learn actively, not passively!
