Information about Yfke

I am a recent graduate in Classics (2.1) from the University of Cambridge, passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience with others, and with significant experience in tutoring, the syllabus GCSE and A-level and the Cambridge admissions process.
The majority of my Spanish, Latin and Greek were self taught, so I have firsthand insight into studying for these subjects outside school time, and given that they are comparatively unusual subjects in schools, I am always excited to offer help and support to those who have chosen to study them!
I like to focus my lessons on the needs of the student, and am very happy to be flexible in terms of what I cover. I can offer help with grammar, vocabulary and translation skills, give experience of conversation (in Spanish!), as well as broader skills of essay writing, interview preparation and advice about university applications, or any other requests from my students!


Availability: I am generally available most days (9am-5pm) including weekends, and most evenings (6-9pm) excluding weekends, although I am happy to be flexible.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have a wealth of experience both as a tutor and in the various subjects I am available to teach.
Primarily I offer tuition in Classics (Latin, Classical Greek, Classical civilisation), which I have just completed a BA in (2.1) from the University of Cambridge. I studied Latin and Greek at GCSE (A*s) and A-level (A`s), and was entirely self-taught in Classical Greek, so have firsthand experience of the examination process, and am familiar with the syllabus in each. Obviously, I also have the benefit of a Classics degree, which enables me not only to focus on the GCSE or A-level course itself, but also a greater breadth of experience in the subject more generally, which makes me able to cover most areas with competence and is useful for a holistic tutoring experience, as well as potential university applications.
I also took GCSEs (A*s) and A-levels (A*s) in Spanish and History, and have recently completed a Spanish qualification from the University of Cambridge, which qualifies me as `fluent` on the European Language Assessment Framework. As such, I have experience of both the GCSE and A-level courses in both subjects, and am therefore able to offer conversation practice, help with grammar or comprehension in Spanish, and help with source analysis, course content, or essay writing in History. My degree required a lot of essays and a thesis, so I am very qualified to help in that regard!
In terms of tutoring, I have been teaching Classics for around 5 years now, by volunteering to teach disadvantaged children Latin, and as a classroom assistant to GCSE classes. I have been working as a Classics tutor on an informal basis for the past year, and have been working by word of mouth with various Cambridge applicants on their university applications and essay writing skills, and have harnessed my previous experience as a volunteer, classroom assistant and tutor, and as an English teacher on cultural exchange programmes to India to offer online tutoring.
