About me

Hi! My name is Zoe and I am a second year studying Classics and Durham University. I have a particular interest in the politics of the Late Roman Republic/Early Empire but also enjoy both Roman and Greek architecture and literature. At A-level, I studied Greek architecture, the Iliad, Augustus and the foundation of the principate, and the Aeneid (In both English and Latin). In my first year at Durham, I have also studied Athenian history and the Persian and Peloponnesian Wars. I love my subje...

Hi! My name is Zoe and I am a second year studying Classics and Durham University. I have a particular interest in the politics of the Late Roman Republic/Early Empire but also enjoy both Roman and Greek architecture and literature. At A-level, I studied Greek architecture, the Iliad, Augustus and the foundation of the principate, and the Aeneid (In both English and Latin). In my first year at Durham, I have also studied Athenian history and the Persian and Peloponnesian Wars. I love my subject and cannot imagine myself doing anything else, so if I can inspire that same enthusiasm, revision will not seem like such a chore for you!


I am a friendly person who enjoys helping others and am a strong believer in the fact that No question is a stupid question! I know that exams are stressful, and have done enough of them to know that if you go in with the right mindset you can achieve anything. This is what I aim to convey to you in our lessons.

About my sessions

My lessons are relaxed and questions are always welcome. Everyone processes information differently, so I aim to find what works best for you and guide you so you feel confident in your own learning!


For Classics, we shall look over practice essays and find areas to improve so that improvement can be seen after every session. We will de-code the mark schemes and examiners' reports to give you the confidence to not only know your subject, but to succeed...

For Latin, grammar and vocab practice are a must. We can create personalised revision sheets which will help you in the areas you are less confident in. For Latin Literature, the key is to both know and understand the text. The method I use got me from a C-A* and is a method I still use at Degree level.


For Maths, I know how daunting the raw idea of Maths can be, but seeing it organised into categories can really benefit your understanding as well as your perception of your progression in revision. The phrase "practice makes perfect" is most fitting for Maths, so with me you will get plenty!


For Interview Preparation, I will have the opportunity to meet you for the first time and gain my own first impressions, unlike your teachers at school; I can give you tips from there. If you have enthusiasm in your subject, the rest can easily be built around it!
