Cambridge Classics graduate with excellent language skills

Hi! I graduated in Classics from the University of Cambridge this past summer. In my final year, I narrowed my study down to my main areas of interest: Greek literature, Latin literature and Archaeology. I also wrote a 10,000 word thesis on Latin literature: Medusa, the gaze and the female body. 

I'm a very friendly and open person, and I've always loved working with young people! I strongly believe that tutoring should be collaborative, open and fun, and for me communication is one of the most important things. I want my students to feel comfortable asking anything they like and just throwing ideas around! In my experience, talking things through in a relaxed and friendly environment is one of the best ways to learn. 

In our first session, we can discuss what stage the student is at, and which direction will be best for our sessions. I can advise on this but also really value the student and parents' input on which methods work best for you. 

My tutorials usually involve catching up from the last session, making sure we're really consolidating what we're learning as we go, rather than covering everything and ending up with a massive amount of revision to do come exam time! 

I usually use things like casual little tests to check we're progressing nicely, and am happy to give and mark proper 'homework' if that's something that would be useful for you. 

One of my favourite things to do in tutorials is to get a sense of the student's interests and play around with what we're learning to make it more accessible. In the past, we've translated silly stories and come up funny ways to remember tenses together.

Reference for Tabitha Hutchison

As a volunteer at our School in Gairatpur Baas, Tabitha was an effective teacher with us for four months - Dec '13 to March '14. She is a good all rounder and could tutor on a wide range of subjects other than just English. I have no hesitation is recommending her as a general tutor.
