About me

I am a second year Classicist at Cambridge University, a degree which requires a wide skill set encompassing languages, literature, history, philosophy and art and archaeology. Throughout my time in school, I pursued a wide range of subjects (I gained A*s in 13 GCSEs, including both science and arts subjects) and am therefore looking forward to using my multidisciplinary background to assist tutees seeking help in a range of subjects. Having achieved A*AA and a high 2:1 in my first year at Ca...

I am a second year Classicist at Cambridge University, a degree which requires a wide skill set encompassing languages, literature, history, philosophy and art and archaeology. Throughout my time in school, I pursued a wide range of subjects (I gained A*s in 13 GCSEs, including both science and arts subjects) and am therefore looking forward to using my multidisciplinary background to assist tutees seeking help in a range of subjects. Having achieved A*AA and a high 2:1 in my first year at Cambridge, with particular success in historical, literary and language-based modules, I am aware of a range of effective revision techniques and the importance of being able to tailor your approach to the requirements of each exam and module. I am also interested in making the process of applying to Oxbridge a little more transparent and familiar to tutees, having experienced the intensity of this process myself and having greatly benefited from speaking to those who had done so before me. In my spare time, I am a keen actor, as well as musician and dancer, so am also happy to engage arts students in wider discussions about the arts on a practical level; I found my ability to write about Greek tragedy was massively improved by a practical understanding of theatre-making, for example. I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

We will use an initial session to establish what the student wants from tuition, thus allowing us to discuss what the student wishes to prioritise and therefore what the most useful structure for their tuition will be; I am very keen to personalise each tutee's experience based on their own needs, interests and goals. In working towards exams, we will fill any gaps the student has in terms of factual information and then build the student’s ability to synthesise this information by explor...

We will use an initial session to establish what the student wants from tuition, thus allowing us to discuss what the student wishes to prioritise and therefore what the most useful structure for their tuition will be; I am very keen to personalise each tutee's experience based on their own needs, interests and goals. In working towards exams, we will fill any gaps the student has in terms of factual information and then build the student’s ability to synthesise this information by exploring it thematically; personally I found building connections between different areas of information helped me develop better understanding and knowledge of the facts. We will then analyse the demands of the exam paper, focusing on the rubric, mark scheme and examiners' reports to ascertain what the exam board is looking for, before beginning to unpack exam questions by mind-mapping the themes of these questions. Finally, we will use practice plans to build a portfolio of practice answer structures to act as a model in the exam, helping the tutee feel more prepared and comfortable in sitting their exams. By creating a personalised series of tuition sessions, I hope to encourage the student to not only improve their attainment in, but also their enjoyment of their subject, combining this with my friendly, approachable style of tuition in order to help my tutees achieve their full potential.
