About me

Hiya, I'm Saskia and I am currently studying BA Classical Studies and English. I enjoy analysing literature especially comparing English with the Classical as I can explore the inspirations and ideas for many famous pieces of work that we read today. Along with my degree, I study Latin as there is no better way to understand a text than to read it in the original form. Although tricky at times, there is a special satisfaction that comes from translating a particularly tough piece of Latin...

Hiya, I'm Saskia and I am currently studying BA Classical Studies and English. I enjoy analysing literature especially comparing English with the Classical as I can explore the inspirations and ideas for many famous pieces of work that we read today. Along with my degree, I study Latin as there is no better way to understand a text than to read it in the original form. Although tricky at times, there is a special satisfaction that comes from translating a particularly tough piece of Latin. I remember how daunting I found the run up to GCSEs and the jump to A level and I hope that I can make the transition a little easier. I was tutored during A levels and as well as improving, it helped me strengthen my confidence in a subject that I began to really enjoy. I am part of the Classical Society and Shakespeare Society at University which are both good fun. Mainly I participate in the plays of both societies which is really exciting as I am able to perform both reworked classics and also original scripts.

About my sessions

In my first tutorials, I set out to find out the particular areas of difficulty for students and most importantly their preferred style of learning as I appreciate that students may wish to be taught in a more personal style than they would be able to at school. As my subjects are all literary based I like to offer some short essay questions that we can work through together so that students are not so daunted by the format when they take the exam. I aim to highlight the student's capabil...

In my first tutorials, I set out to find out the particular areas of difficulty for students and most importantly their preferred style of learning as I appreciate that students may wish to be taught in a more personal style than they would be able to at school. As my subjects are all literary based I like to offer some short essay questions that we can work through together so that students are not so daunted by the format when they take the exam. I aim to highlight the student's capability as when I was at school I often found that my ideas were right I just often doubted my ability. As their confidence in their own ability grows, so will their skill and technique. Especially in repeat tutorials, I will ask about topics that we went over previously so that students are always remembering how to translate a certain verb or utilise a particular style of technique in their essay. Above all I want students to realise that they can achieve their goals and that the examination questions are not as scary as one might think.

She did great; she explained every single thing; she made sure if I knew what she was talking about. If I were to give a rating out of 5, I would give a 5.
