About me

I study French and Classical Greek at Cambridge University. At first this seems like a strange combination, but in truth I just couldn't bare giving either one of them up when I left school. I've really enjoyed the different challenges of both the modern and classical language this year. I have had previous teaching and tutoring experience providing one-to-one classes for GCSE students at a secondary school in London.

I study French and Classical Greek at Cambridge University. At first this seems like a strange combination, but in truth I just couldn't bare giving either one of them up when I left school. I've really enjoyed the different challenges of both the modern and classical language this year. I have had previous teaching and tutoring experience providing one-to-one classes for GCSE students at a secondary school in London. I really enjoyed the challenge of teaching, the intimacy of teaching one-on-one and seeing the students progress and develop. I was also fortunate to attend a school which had great experience in Oxbridge applications and general exam technique, and can provide useful insights to my students in this regard. Aside from my studies, I love playing rugby, and played for the winning Cambridge team in last year's Varsity Match, and again in the same fixture this year.

About my sessions

I am really passionate about my subjects and enjoy teaching, so I will approach my lessons with energy and enthusiasm. I feel I can help my students improve through my knowledge and experience of not only my subjects but also of public exams, and what exactly the exam boards are looking for from the top students. My tutorials will be structured around the student's need, and we will focus on any areas that need particular improvement, whilst also topping up areas that are already strong....

I am really passionate about my subjects and enjoy teaching, so I will approach my lessons with energy and enthusiasm. I feel I can help my students improve through my knowledge and experience of not only my subjects but also of public exams, and what exactly the exam boards are looking for from the top students. My tutorials will be structured around the student's need, and we will focus on any areas that need particular improvement, whilst also topping up areas that are already strong. Importantly as well, there will be an element of enjoyment and fun to all lessons. Especially with languages, in my experience, the best technique for learning is to do exercises and throw yourself into. Hence my lessons will take a similar pattern; a few exercises done together followed by the student attempting a few on their own. A little but often approach always served me well in preparation for exams, and would recommend the same to my students.
