About me

Hi! I'm a first year student at the University of Oxford currently studying Classics. I am frequently asked what Classics is, and frequently struggle to define it, but the best way to describe it is an all-encompassing study of the Romans and Ancient Greeks, ranging from their philosophy, to their literature, architecture as well as their languages.

Hi! I'm a first year student at the University of Oxford currently studying Classics. I am frequently asked what Classics is, and frequently struggle to define it, but the best way to describe it is an all-encompassing study of the Romans and Ancient Greeks, ranging from their philosophy, to their literature, architecture as well as their languages.


The reason it's hard to define Classics is the exact reason I love it, because it seems to incorporates all subjects into one in the uber cool context of Ancient Rome and Greece. I've always been interested in ancient history but I also have a great passion for literature. Something I really struggled with when I was applying to university was deciding whether I wanted pursue English Literature or Classics. I ultimately chose Classics because the freedom in my degree offers me a lot of choice to focus on ancient literature, to which modern literature owes a huge legacy.


Another challenge that I faced during my university applications was choosing to apply to Oxford. Having come from a state-school background as a minority student, I personally know how daunting it can be to apply to Oxford, especially when your school doesn't have the knowledge to support you. My success was facilitated by the help of a great tutor who helped me achieve an A* in English Literature. I hope to help others achieve their potential!

My Online lessons will be tailored to the needs of each individual student and will focus on their chosen topics. I aim to support the student with my motivated and enthusiastic spirit! In the session we will have a discussion in a tutorial-style which encourage the student to become a confident and independent thinker. Students are encouraged to ask many questions and express any concerns they may have so that I can offer support. Recognising good work and offering continual positive motivation is an essential way to encourage learning, as well as listening to student input so that they feel that they're getting the most out of our sessions.


While I believe that one of our best resources are past exam papers, the most important thing is passion! This is what I hope to give my students in an environment that fosters curiosity, which is often forgotten in the shadow of GCSE and A-Level stress.
