I am currently studying Classical Civilisation at the University of Leeds, and I am eager to help students with essay writing, exam preparations, proof reading and general knowledge in Classics and English. I am particularly interested in the literature modules of my course, which I have favoured this year, as I find that I have a more natural ability in this field. I studied Classical Civilisation and English Combined at college, and won an award in the latter course, as I achieved an A*. Whilst I enjoy both Ancient Greek and Roman modules, I do prefer Greek history and literature, particularly since I am learning Ancient Greek language.


When I was in school, I struggled substantially with maths, and never expected to get a very high grade. I studied for my exams using online teachers and videos, which resulted in me achieving my very first A in maths as my GCSE grade. Exams can be very nerve-wrecking, so it really helped me to have someone there to help me, which I am eager to do for other people in fields I excel at. Also, although applying to university can seem very daunting, once you have the grades the rest of the process doesn’t seem as difficult.

About my sessions

I am happy to work at whatever pace my students are happy with, albeit with an encouraging push towards improvement.

My lessons will be structured based on what I feel works best for the individual student. For example, a student may need to go over something they feel more comfortable with first, in order to build confidence and perfect it, whereas with another I may begin with something they struggle with.

I am happy to work at whatever pace my students are happy with, albeit with an encouraging push towards improvement.

My lessons will be structured based on what I feel works best for the individual student. For example, a student may need to go over something they feel more comfortable with first, in order to build confidence and perfect it, whereas with another I may begin with something they struggle with.


A technique that works well for me personally is listing and repetition. I will sound out whether or not this is a viable technique to use with each student and act accordingly. I will determine how each student works best and help them retain information through methods that suit them best.


In subjects such as Classical Civilisation and English, I’ve found that mind-maps and listing work well, as well as discussions on specific topics and themes, which I am happy to indulge. I intend to do as my teachers and peers did for me, and listen to each student’s personal opinions and interpretations, as well as giving my own insight and potentially differing view. This will provide them with a wider range of knowledge, and the opportunity to convince me of their own views, as they would have to convince an examiner.
