Hello!


My name is Nana and I am currently a second year student studying Classics and English Literature and Language at the University of Oxford! I love to read, and compare various literature exploring the ways in which they engage with each other. It made sense then to study both Classics and English as a joint honours degree because I am completely enraptured by the way in which the two disciplines continuously entangle themselves and interact with each other in ways I didn't even think possible.


I believe that when you delve into a novel, a play or even poetry, you are also delving into a world of imagination where you must use your own creativity to extract the full meaning of the text. This is why English is such a brilliant subject because it creates a thousand different possibilities of the 'correct answer'. My role then, is to help students identify this notion and then work with them to grow accustomed to using their own creative input to produce original and unique responses to questions posed to them by exams or interviewers. In addition to tutoring various levels of English, I tutor GCSE Latin, Oxbridge Preparation, including the ELAT and mock interviews for any discipline. I can also help students with their personal statements to any University of choice.

About my sessions

Patience is a policy of mine, this stems from my own past experience of feeling uncomfortable and pressured when my tutors got frustrated at my inability to grasp what they were saying! Each student should be entitled to work at their own pace and I believe true success lies in this principle.

Patience is a policy of mine, this stems from my own past experience of feeling uncomfortable and pressured when my tutors got frustrated at my inability to grasp what they were saying! Each student should be entitled to work at their own pace and I believe true success lies in this principle.


I always try to get feedback from the students in order to continuously adapt their lessons until they are perfectly tailored to the them - no two students are the same! I think it is imperative that the student's concerns, areas for improvement and goals, are accurately conveyed so that we can address those first and foremost.


I also think it is important to stick closely to the syllabus. Once we have checked everything off the syllabus, the student can rest assured that they will not be caught off guard in the exam. From this point we can start to build in any extra wider knowledge to impress examiners further.


I also believe measuring progress is important and so I create bespoke mini tests, to test the student in the areas they find challenging. These are useful, not only for the student's improvement, but so they themselves can look back on their rate of progress and be encouraged by their success.
