About me

My name is Emma Bentley, and I'm a third year Classics student at King's College London. I've studied both Latin and Greek at an advanced university level for two years, and alongside that I have a special interest in Greek tragedy, epic poems, and various areas of Ancient History. I have been lucky enough to read ancient texts in their original language, but I understand how it can be difficult to connect to the ancient world and I'm very passionate about making Classics more...

My name is Emma Bentley, and I'm a third year Classics student at King's College London. I've studied both Latin and Greek at an advanced university level for two years, and alongside that I have a special interest in Greek tragedy, epic poems, and various areas of Ancient History. I have been lucky enough to read ancient texts in their original language, but I understand how it can be difficult to connect to the ancient world and I'm very passionate about making Classics more accessible and enjoyable for all. I know first hand how daunting things like learning grammar can be, and I pride myself in being able to explain complex rules in a clear, easy to understand and engaging way. I'm also incredibly enthusiastic about literature in general, and originally applied to university to study both Classics and English so I know about the application process for both. This background means I understand how to revise for both language, literature and history exams.


I'm currently the co-editor in chief of my university's undergraduate Classics research journal, and because of this I know how to structure and edit a convincing essay, and I love helping people to write the best work that they can produce. Furthermore, I achieved the highest average grades for my course in my second year and love to share my revision methods with students.

About my sessions

Whilst the structure of my online lessons will depend heavily on the topic, it's important to me that I work through and help students understand their school curriculum/homework assignments. I'm also more than happy to answer any questions about a chosen topic, and to fill in any gaps or areas of misunderstandings that students may have with the information that they were told in class. However, I think it's important to ask questions that encourage the student to think for thems...

Whilst the structure of my online lessons will depend heavily on the topic, it's important to me that I work through and help students understand their school curriculum/homework assignments. I'm also more than happy to answer any questions about a chosen topic, and to fill in any gaps or areas of misunderstandings that students may have with the information that they were told in class. However, I think it's important to ask questions that encourage the student to think for themselves and come to their own conclusions, rather than simply be told the answer. In my own preparation for exams, I found going through practice exam questions incredibly helpful, and I believe that consistent practice is one of the main ways to ensure success. I do understand that each student is different and has their own learning style, and I'm more than willing to help students in the way that is best for them.
