Personal Description:

I am a Ph.D. student in Classics at U.C. Berkeley, having 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.

Throughout 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.

** I am currently in the San Francisco Bay Area so will only be available for online tuition. **

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 the speeches of Cicero and the poems of Catullus.

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 invest my tutees with 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.
