My education in Classics (itself a product of my Classical education) began properly while I was an undergraduate at University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA. I'm well versed in Roman History, Roman Mythology, Greek History and mythology. I spent a fall quarter at the prestigious ICCS (Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies) Rome program. I'm thus familiar with Rome as a both modern and ancient city, the many small towns of the Italian countryside -- so many forgotten stories in these places. I've yet to tutor a student who isn't my peer in just the broad field of "Classics," but most of my tutoring experience has involved my knowledge of Classical antiquity, productively so.
My first love is Latin, my second Greek. At least, those are my loves in Academia. Most of my tutoring style for Greek derives from that of Latin, since both languages require students to develop the same broad (but peculiar) set of skills. I've studied Greek formally for 5 years, now at advanced stages as I begin work on my PhD, which is in Classics more broadly. I have deep experience with a variety of Greek prose and poetry authors, as well as ample experience tutoring Greek (Attic, Homeric, Koine), and exposure to a hearty swath of current Greek teaching materials.
