Struggling to figure out those ancient languages or learn which dates are important for a history class? Have no fear! It's very easy to break the "code" of how these subjects work!
I'm a current graduate student at UCLA studying Latin and Greek with an emphasis on history. I love languages and history, and it would be a shame for a student to be discouraged from these great fields because of a little setback. I have tutored students (ages 10-17) in both Latin and Greek before; as well, I have worked as a teaching assistant for Roman and Greek civilization classes, which emphasize knowing how historical and cultural events interact and influence each other.
My tutoring practices must of course vary depending on the age and skill of the student. In one case, I helped create a Latin curriculum for a student who had no other opportunity to learn the language. For students who are struggling in a class, I believe in working with the texts the teacher assigned and supplementing this knowledge with my own materials. Especially with the languages, it's important for students to see that the grammar works in a logical way and that translating is almost like solving a puzzle. I also firmly believe that having students practice reading the language out loud increases facility and understanding of how syntax works. For students needing tutoring in history, tutoring practices must of course vary depending on age and course. AP courses demand different skills, and sometimes improved grades can come from knowing which sources to use and how to draw connections between evidence.
I like to spend part of our first meeting understanding what goals a student has for our tutoring commitment and learning how the student has gone about studying and working prior to our meeting. Once I understand their goals and previous working methods, I can draw up a plan for future learning and studying. If you think we would work well together, please feel free to contact me!
I am currently a 3rd year PhD student at UCLA in Classical philology. I have studied ancient Greek for more than 7 years now. My speciality is in Classical Greek literature (particularly the historians, tragedy, and Pindar), and I wrote my MA thesis on Xenophon and Pindar. I also have experience tutoring a 13 year old boy in ancient Greek for preparation in the National Greek Exam.
Great tutor! — Thank you very much for the insight you gave me not only into Lysias, but how to read the commentaries. I finally have a greater understanding of 3:15, and also this leads me to more questions, which made it much more interesting. And, thank you for the book recommendations. I found a great article on trauma to wound- and whether it is a private or public trial-etc. Looking forward to our next ses ...
