BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS

Outside of mentoring, I am an aspiring comic writer, director and actor. I am currently directing a comedy sketch show at the Canal Cafe Theatre. I also have a keen interest in language, and host a monthly podcast on words and etymologies.

EXPERIENCE & APPROACH

I think students perform the best when they are the most engaged in what they are learning, when they can connect their learning to things they already love, whether that’s activities, interests or hobbies. I have been mentoring for over three years now in a wide range of subjects and age groups. I have mentored three students into their universities of choice, and one girl through her GCSE English with top grades. I am currently mentoring GCSE English, Latin and A level Latin and after mentoring one girl through A-Level Latin and her Oxbridge exams and interviews, she has been offered a place to study Classics at St John’s College, Oxford

TESTIMONIALS

"Olly is amazing, he is so engaging and has built a rapport quickly with my son. He used to reluctantly go to extra tuition before we found Oppidan. He now looks forward to the session and is proud of his work." Mother of 10-year-old
