Personal Description:

I am a third year Classics student at Oxford University, with a particular interest in translation, linguistics and Latin literature. I have a specialist knowledge in the Aeneid, Cicero and Ovidian poetry and Latin prose composition. I can also assist students of Ancient Greek with language and literature and Classical Civilisation.

I am from London and spent six months in Central America in Spanish speaking countries after completing an A-Level in Spanish.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored students of all levels in both Spanish and Latin on a one to one basis. I have helped with Spanish oral practice as well as improvement of essay writing skills and understanding of grammar. I have coached Latin from beginner level and have a good supply and knowledge of physical and online resources. I have assisted in school preparation classes for Oxbridge interviews and general essay writing skills.

Teaching Approach:

I work on assessing the needs and priorities of the individual. I am eager for students to bring me questions and to help them understand using techniques which specifically help them. I like to use examples from past papers and am focussed on achieving grades in exams, whilst making the subject interesting. I am passionate about Classics and Spanish and think that best results are achieved when a student enjoys learning. I believe that results which a student can be proud of will follow this.
