Personal Description:

I am an Associate Lecturer of Latin at the Courtauld Institute of Art. At the same time, I am a PhD student in Classics at King`s College London, where I have also been working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for three years. My research project focuses on the influences of Greek and Roman literary history and criticism on the poetry of Horace. My passion for and expertise in ancient literature and culture have made me a doctoral member of the International Réseau for the Study of Augustan Poetry. Besides pursuing my doctoral studies, I am translating a 1671 book from Latin to English within a project led by some Irish scholars.

Tutoring Experience:

I have eight years of experience in teaching people of different ages in a variety of contexts (private tutoring, university seminars and lectures, and summer schools).

Tutoring Approach:

I tend to combine Ørberg's teaching method (which is commonly used in most schools around the UK) with a more traditional one, aiming at practicing the student's translation skills while also improving his/her knowledge of grammar. Generally speaking, my approach to teaching, which the Higher Education Academy has officially acknowledged by giving me a HEA Fellowship, allows me to be able to tailor my teaching method to the individual needs of my students.

  • King's College London (2014) - MPhil Classics (Masters) (✔ On File)
