I am in my third year studying Classics at Oxford University, having done Latin, Ancient Greek, Maths and Further Maths at A-level/Pre-U (an A level equivalent). I achieved exam results in the top ten of a year of c.130 students in my second year, and have particularly strong language and literature skills. I am also a musician, with grade 8 distinctions in violin and singing, as well as grade 7 piano and an A* in GCSE Music. I have good interpersonal skills and am very thorough and rigorous in my approach to work, though I am also light-hearted when appropriate.
I have taught primary school children violin now for two years and have helped them through their early grades.
I find that the best way to learn is to truly understand the material rather than try to rote learn it. For classics, this means making sure that grammar, vocabulary and syntax are completely comfortable and learned in a pragmatic way, observing patterns and exceptions. For maths this means helping my students conceptualise difficult areas of maths before trying to solve the problem at hand.
