    fake modesty

    hello teachers,

    I'm looking for a word that describes a person who is modest but in an insincere way, or should I say to show disapproval of a person who's being too modest that's deemed fake or insincere.

    In fact I've seen this word before but I just couldn't recall it.
    your help is appreciated.
