About me

Hi I'm Jess! I love Classics for its diversity and scope - it's the study of language, literature, art, philosophy, religion, politics, history and culture all combined in one. The Classical period has had a profound effect on our modern society, with many of today's concepts and creations founded from the ideas and innovations of the Romans and Greeks. I have studied Latin since year 7 and Classics since year 9. I also spent my first year at uni learning Ancient Greek.

I've just joined MyTutor but I'm looking forward to helping you improve your Latin grammar and translation skills, as well as studying Classical history and works of literature in translation. I have studied a broad range of Classical history so far but if there is something I have not covered on your syllabus I am more than happy to research it and work with you on essay writing skills and exam technique. 


I have built up a collection of my own resources and materials since GCSE that I am happy to share with you as I tutor you. I am a friendly and approachable person and will be as helpful as I can be in answering any questions you may have, as well as broadening your understanding e.g. of difficult language constructions or complex historical events.

About my sessions

I will tailor my sessions to however suits you. For Latin this might mean going through a hard translation together and ensuring you understand the grammar and know the vocabulary, or if there is a specific grammatical construction you want to learn how to deal with. Maybe you did something in class that you didn't fully understand which I can explain and practise with you? For Classics this might be going over key themes in a book you're reading, or analysing a piece of poetry/art. W...

I will tailor my sessions to however suits you. For Latin this might mean going through a hard translation together and ensuring you understand the grammar and know the vocabulary, or if there is a specific grammatical construction you want to learn how to deal with. Maybe you did something in class that you didn't fully understand which I can explain and practise with you? For Classics this might be going over key themes in a book you're reading, or analysing a piece of poetry/art. Whatever you want to do I can provide an easy to understand document to explain it and worksheets/questions to practise with. 


In the short 15 minute free meeting I will ask how best you learn so I can do my best to incorporate your style of learning into lessons. For example, if you are more of a visual learner I will try to find diagrams and pictures to explain concepts and theories. I will also set out a plan for you to reach your personal target at GCSE or A-Level and make sure we do regular evaluations to see if you are on track to reach them. 


Ultimately, I can tailor my sessions to whatever you need and how you feel you learn best.
