Personal Description:

Hello,

I am a Masters student in News Journalism at City University. I recently obtained a 2.1. BA in Classics from Oxford University. In my final year at Oxford I chose a wide range of finals options including theory of politics, history of the early greek world and the reception of classical works in 20th Century British literature. I also wrote a dissertation on the philosophical conception of the underworld in Aeneid book 6. Besides studying, I wrote for the student newspaper, played tennis and was on several committees.

Tutoring Experience:

In my final year at Oxford I tutored three different students every week. I helped one student prepare for her A level English exam, helping her with literature coursework as well as essay technique for her mocks. I worked with another student on her comprehension and literary analysis for her English GCSE. I helped my third student prepare for her Latin GCSE by focusing on grammar, vocabulary and translation skills.

In Oxford I also worked as a tutor for the charity Jacari. Every week I spent one hour teaching a 12-year-old Portuguese boy English. At first communication was very difficult. I was forced to be creative and adapt my lessons to his specific needs. I found this teaching experience very challenging, but incredibly rewarding.

Tutoring Approach:

I find tutoring enjoyable and take great heart in seeing the students progress and gain confidence. Due to my dual nationality I am used to explaining the idiosyncrasies and grammatical complexities of the English language to non-native speakers.
