About me

Hi! I'm Andrew, and I am third year student, currently studying Classics and French at the University of Oxford. I have been studying Latin and French since I was 11, so I have many years of experience behind me, and a lot of love for these subjects. I am currently living in Paris and working for a publishing house, so I have a high level of everyday French that is perfect for helping give you the extra edge.

Hi! I'm Andrew, and I am third year student, currently studying Classics and French at the University of Oxford. I have been studying Latin and French since I was 11, so I have many years of experience behind me, and a lot of love for these subjects. I am currently living in Paris and working for a publishing house, so I have a high level of everyday French that is perfect for helping give you the extra edge. I have recently won the Cheney Prize for Arts and the Social Sciences for an essay on early modern French poetry, and was nominated for special commendation following the results of my first year exams. I am super passionate about language and literature, and I hope that these qualities, as well as my qualifications, will help me to help you. An enthusiasm for the material with which you are working is the most important part of any learning, and so I hope that I can help you to learn and be enthused by the work we do together!

About my sessions

Each session should be unique. There is no point trying to teach every person in the same way. I will try to get a sense of the student's current understanding of the subject, and build from there. I will start more generally, discussing the wider context of the question posed, and then we can focus in on the fine details that help to push the student beyond what may be expected. Keeping the session open to the questions and problems that arise as we go on is really important to me, as I...

Each session should be unique. There is no point trying to teach every person in the same way. I will try to get a sense of the student's current understanding of the subject, and build from there. I will start more generally, discussing the wider context of the question posed, and then we can focus in on the fine details that help to push the student beyond what may be expected. Keeping the session open to the questions and problems that arise as we go on is really important to me, as I feel that forcing a student through too rigid a plan may actually leave them feeling lost. Going at the pace of each individual and allowing them time to fully grasp all the ideas and concepts that may come up is what helps to nourish active and effective learning. I will obviously prepare material in advance, be that passages for translation, thematic or textual questions, or vocab tests.
