Most people don't notice it, but the world we live in is still very much a Greek and Roman world. Those two ancient languages are the best way to begin seeing how much we have inherited from that classical culture. They're hard, it's true; but I can help you do very well and enjoy it too! I'm a former Program Director for Classics at Boston Latin School (1999 to 2011) and I have a great deal of experience teaching at the collegiate level as well.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Greek

I hold a Ph.D. in Classics, which includes mastery of both ancient Greek and Latin. While Latin is much more frequently taught and learned in schools, ancient Greek is not. But interest in ancient Greek is growing, and I am ready to help you with tutoring in this wonderful subject. I have a great deal of experience teaching Greek, both classical prose and archaic/epic poetry. I have taught Herodotus, Xenophon, Attic orators, Aristophanes, Plato, Hesiod, and Homer.

Latin

Latin is still the very best foundation subject for academic success in many disciplines: English, history, the sciences, and modern languages. It's not easy, but I can show you how to make it fun and efficient to learn.
