I have lots of tutoring and teaching experience and started tutoring while Sixth Form. I have taught Latin and Chemistry to GCSE and A Level students and spent several months volunteering as a teaching assistant with a Y13 Chemistry class at a Long Road Sixth Form College.

I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a Classics degree and am about to return to university to complete a one-year masters in Latin American Studies. I have lots of tutoring and teaching experience and started tutoring while Sixth Form. I have taught Latin and Chemistry to GCSE and A Level students and spent several months volunteering as a teaching assistant with a Y13 Chemistry class at a Long Road Sixth Form College. I have also tutored Latin translation over email. I have now applied to Cambridge twice (once for the undergrad, once for the masters) and would be happy to help with Oxbridge prep and university applications more generally. I have worked in the past with several students to improve their personal statements.

About my sessions

I am happy to structure tutoring sessions however best suits you! Whether you'd rather go over problems which came up in class, go through past paper questions together or try out different revision techniques, you just need to let me know what you think you'd find most helpful .I'm keen to make sessions fun and I always ask my students about how they enjoy learning. I recognise the importance of building confidence, as well as teaching subject content, so this is central to my tu...

I am happy to structure tutoring sessions however best suits you! Whether you'd rather go over problems which came up in class, go through past paper questions together or try out different revision techniques, you just need to let me know what you think you'd find most helpful .I'm keen to make sessions fun and I always ask my students about how they enjoy learning. I recognise the importance of building confidence, as well as teaching subject content, so this is central to my tutoring approach. I will not set "homework" but I might suggest that we agree on certain things to practise between sessions (e.g. vocab learning) in order to get the most out of our lessons. I will give detailed feedback about the progress you're making, reminding you of how far you've come and discussing what you need to do next to reach your goals.
