Oxbridge Classics Admission Application and Test Coaching

Applications for Classics at Oxford and Cambridge both involve a language assessment, for which I provide expert tutoring and guidance in as a first-class Classics and English graduate from Oxford.

Classics at Oxford uses the Classics Admissions Test (CAT) for Course I (for students with Latin/Greek to A Level) or the Classical Language Aptitude Test (CLAT) for Course II (for students without Latin/Greek) to decide who will be invited for interview. At Cambridge only candidates shortlisted for interview will be required to take such assessment, which will be a translation exercise for the 3-year course, or a language aptitude interview for the 4-year. All assessments involve careful application of linguistic knowledge, whether of classical languages or English, which I will ensure you are extremely well-prepared to do.

Applicants are also required to submit two pieces of written work prior to interview, which I am able to advise about if requested.

Extra information

This lesson will generally be conducted online unless otherwise requested, so please ensure you have a computer/laptop with a strong Wi-Fi connection.

About Me

Hello! My name is Maya, I am a first-class Classics and English graduate from the University of Oxford with significant experience in subject tutoring and Oxbridge admission coaching.

I fully appreciate the significance 1-to-1 tuition can have on a student's ability, confidence, and enjoyment in a subject. After I received such teaching at Oxford (having come from large state comprehensive schools), I ended up coming 2nd in my cohort in my finals. I want to help others realise their potential in the same way -- whatever they are aiming for.

I can offer Oxbridge admissions coaching, as well as teaching to all school levels in: English Language, English Literature, History, Classics, Latin, and Classical Greek. Please enquire as to the level and content you require, as I can offer further subjects at KS3 level and under.

Applications for English at Oxford and Cambridge both involve a written assessment, both of which I provide expert tutoring and guidance in as a first-class Classics and English graduate from Oxford. English at Oxford uses the English Literature Admissions Test to decide who will be invited for interview, whereas at Cambridge only candidates shortlisted for interview will be required to take a written assessment. Both tests require detailed and thoughtful responses to literary extracts, which I will help develop your thinking and writing for. Applicants are also required to submit two pieces of written work prior to interview, which I am able to advise about if requested.

Spanish lessons/ Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español/ スペイン語のレッスン。
My Spanish lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.

Private Mathematics Lessons - A-levels, GCSE (Edexcel, AQA, OCR)
Maths is my second language, if not my first! I am currently studying for a Masters in Maths at King's College London, and love to share the knowledge I have with students. __Qualifications__ • GCSE: Maths - A* • A-Levels: Maths - A* Further Maths - A* __Experience__ • 4+ years of private tuition specializing in GCSE and A-Level Maths • Currently Head Tutor for WeSolveProblems, i.e. teach a class of the highest achieving Maths students in London Over the years of teaching, I have refined my ability to teach, and have a foolproof method of improving students problem-solving skills. I believe in a holistic approach to Maths, where I emphasize "how" and "why" the problem and solution works, this not only guarantees an improvement in the students mathematical ability (and subsequently their grades), but in their ability to swiftly grasp any future Maths concepts they learn.

Evangelos
Private Tutoring Mathematics & Test Prep from a PhD (7+ - 13+, GCSEs, A-Levels, IB, University) Online/At home
I am currently a Teaching Associate for Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and an Application Consultant for the University of London(UOL). My expertise lies into tutoring mathematics for school for ages between 7+, 11+, 13+, GCSEs, A-Levels as well as UG/University. I am familiar with most of the exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR etc) and I have worked with students undergoing the IB Curriculum. While I try to provide a fun and interesting lesson, to keep my students stimulated, I have also extensive experience into exams preparation for my students to achieve their goals. My steps towards a complete and successful tuition period with a student include quickly building rapport, assigning homework after each lesson, keeping track of the student's progress and establishing a good connection with the parents. Through academic applications as well as my employment in the consultancy career, I have become adept in formulating proper university proposals as well as providing targeted advice and interview preparation. Moreover, I currently work as a Subject Specialist with private education agencies in London, where I tutor and consult students for their Oxbridge, London and Greater London area academic applications (reviews of personal statements, delivering mock interviews, tutoring modules). My pricing varies depending on the level of the course offered.

Kuldeep
Mathematics, Physics, Computer Programming, and Test Preparing Tutoring.
In this class, I will mainly focus on the basics and fundamental principles that will help you for a longer period of time and not just for a smaller period. I can also adjust to focus on main topics and suggest some tricks for quick test preparation. I like to talk and teach, I think communication is really important when it comes to learning science. I like to clear all doubts and questions, and I make students believe that there are no bad questions in science so do not hesitate to ask any question. I teach as an open discussion, which enables you to have similar discussions in the future and brings more novel ideas compared to the typical teaching style. I love science and AI, so I can teach any topic that you require or you are struggling with.

Carlotta
Latin tutoring for secondary students (Dutch / Latin / German / English)
Salvē, my name is Carlotta and I have 5 years of experience in tutoring. These now take place in Leuven, where I live in a room, as well as in Maldegem, where I come from. Since April 2022, I have been taking courses in Latin language acquisition at the Schola Latīna, an Italian private school that uses the comprehensible input (CI) method. This means that all classes are taught exclusively in the target language, allowing me to not only translate Latin, but also speak and write Latin. Since no Flemish school expects active language skills, I will of course not do this during the lessons ;) In practice the same problems always return: difficulties with translation, difficulties with memorization of sequences and vocabulary, lack of motivation or fun. When such a fantastic profession is experienced as difficult, it is only logical that motivation also drops. Whatever the problem, Latin itself is a perfectly feasible subject. I also tutored mathematics and noticed that students only have fun when they are no longer struggling, which is what we are working towards :) My goal is to be less needed as quickly as possible by learning and practicing strategies. When you contact us, please state the year the student is in. I provide extra customized material! Cūrā ut valeās, Carlotta

Beatrice
SAT preparation - online and in presence classes !
I have worked for 5 years now with kids from international schools, helping them with the preparation of tests such as the SAT and ACT. I believe that the key for a successful preparation of a challenging test such as the SAT is exercise, in fact I believe that is crucial to start the preparation with an adequate advance to gain confidence with the standard exercises we can find in the exam. My lessons are based on mock exercises: we go through them together seeing what are the student's gaps and then reviewing the theory of those gaps. I also believe that my method I successful since I can relate to the fear and anxiety a student preparing such a stressful exam is living, having prepared it not so long ago.
