Personal Description:

I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Classics at U.C. Berkeley; I previously completed a Masters degree in Greek and Latin Languages and Literature at Oxford University, where I also received my B.A. in the same area.

During my time studying Classics, I have excelled most of all in the linguistic side of my courses, and am thus well equipped to provide tuition in Greek and Latin languages at all levels. I also specialise in the more technical disciplines of classical studies, such as papyrology, palaeography, and textual criticism, which complement the study of ancient languages especially well.

** Currently I am only available for online tuition. **
My tutees have found online tuition via Skype to be just as effective as a face-to-face meeting. In case you are unsure whether online sessions will work for you/your child, I can apply a 40% discount to the first session.

Tutoring Experience:

See below for feedback from some of my tutees.

Areas I have taught previously include: elementary and advanced Greek; elementary and intermediate Latin (including preparation for scholarship exams); Greek prose composition at university level; Latin prose composition at all levels; translation and commentary of Cicero and Catullus. I am familiar with the Cambridge Latin Course and the current GCSE set texts.

Aside from private tuition, I taught elementary and intermediate Latin for a short time at Marymount International School (a private all-girls school in London), which involved working with students on a one-to-one basis and in large classes.

Tutoring Approach:

I aim to give my tutees an in-depth understanding of all the required aspects of Latin and Greek grammar, and to reinforce their learning with translation exercises and rigorous analyses of how each word in a sentence relates to others. I am, moreover, very interested in etymology (the study of the origin of words), and encourage tutees to appreciate the linguistic links between Latin/Greek and English in order to learn vocabulary items with much greater speed and efficiency.
