I have a BA in Classics (summa cum laude) from the University of Colorado, and an MA in Classical and Near Eastern Studies from the University of Minnesota, where I was elected Hebrew Student of the Year. I have also taught classes at University level in Ancient Near Eastern and New Testament topics, and have tutored students preparing to take their GED examinations. I am a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and I scored in the 99th percentile of the verbal section of the GRE. I am currently studying Biblical Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
I have studied Ancient Greek for over six years, having taken 33 credit hours (so far!), in which time I have read and studied works in the full range of dialects and styles, including Homeric, Doric, Attic, Ionic, New Testament and Patristic Greek. Learning Classical Greek can be challenging; so if you have taken a year or two at college, and have been rushed through a course of grammar in a year before being thrown headlong into un-adapted readings, and are now struggling to stay afloat and wondering if it's all worth it, then I know how you feel! My job is to find the weak links which are causing the problems, and review difficult concepts in ways that work. If you have never studied Greek before, and are not obligated to follow a formal course of study at school or university, I will take you through a course of study which has proven very successful overseas, and which steadily builds the student’s knowledge without overwhelming them, allowing the student to thoroughly master the material stage by stage, while being supplemented with a generous amount of adapted reading alongside exercises which will reinforce the lessons.
