I am a 23 year old Classics student having just finished my fourth and final year of study at Oxford University. Before Oxford, I attended the local school Latymer Upper, where I obtained the highest grades at both GCSE and A-Level. I’m both a (very recent!) graduate from Oxford and also an aspiring actor, signed to Independent Talent Company, and was cast in my first professional role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Outside of the world of work, my interests revolve around the arts, and living in London has enabled me to indulge my passion for film, theatre, music and visual art. I have played football more or less since birth (and am a diehard Arsenal supporter) and was in the first team at Latymer for both football and rugby. I am also a keen fan of most other sports, particularly tennis, and seek to finally perfect my backhand slice over the summer.
I have studied Latin from the age of 11, and have been tutoring the subject at various different levels over the past five years
Though I only took Ancient Greek up at Oxford, intensive 9am classes every day in my first year and a half made sure that I was up to the same standard as those who had the language from school. I have also been tutoring the subject over the past two years
I haven’t sat the Class Civ exam, but having studied Classics at Oxford for the last four years, I have been well equipped to the tutor the subject, having spent about 20 hours tutoring one child last year.
At GCSE, I achieved 100% across all four English literature and language papers, whilst obtaining a very high A* in my A-Level exam. Though I did not pursue the subject academically after school, I have a keen interest in literature and have tutored the subject sporadically since I left school.
Many of the students I have tutored have struggled as much with the process of doing exams as they have any given subject - having taken some of the most testing exams in the world [the CAT (Classics Admissions Test) and Mods] whilst at Oxford, exam technique is an area in which I am very strong.
