Meet the Team: Academic Team

 

Harry Derbyshire

1-1 Coach

Harry is currently reading Classics at Trinity College, Cambridge.   She has chosen to focus on Art and Archaeology, Ancient History and Literature, and especially enjoys Ancient Economics, the Pastoral, and textual criticism.   She’s also interested in Late Antiquity, Dress History and Welsh History.   She will also argue about the merits of Nestor to anyone who will listen.  

 

She’s been passionate about the Ancient World for as long as she can remember (shoutout to Verulamium Roman Museum and Caroline Lawrence’s ‘Roman Mysteries’ series) and hopes to stay studying Classics for as long as it'll have her.  She’s been very fortunate to be able to study Classics for a long time, and to be able to study Classics at Cambridge, but wants to make Classics a more accessible and diverse field (that’s where Academus comes in!).   

 

Harry has experience tutoring in English and Classics (Greek, Class Civ and Latin), and at school helped to run a Latin Drama Club for Year 7&8s.  She also mentors prospective applicants and new undergraduates via her Instagram microblog.    

 

Outside of studying, Harry is the Vice-President of Cambridge University Classics Society, Publicity officer for Cambridge University Real Ale Society, and a keen walker.  She also enjoys drama, (badly) playing the piano, and working her way through Terry Pratchett's corpus.
