Greek

I majored in Ancient Greek (along with Latin and Classical History) at Boston University and am currently studying it extensively for my Classical Philology Ph.D at CUNY Graduate Center.

Beyond my mastery of Greek grammar and vocabulary, I have read substantial sections of the New Testament, Plato's Republic, Plato's Symposium, Demosthenes' Philipics, Plutarch's Life of Alexander, Euripides' Medea and Hippolytus, Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War, Herodotus' Histories, Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days, and I have read the entirety of Aristophanes' Lysistrata, Clouds, and Frogs, Aristotle's Poetics, Homer's Hymn to Demeter, Plutarch's How to Read Poetry and Marriage Advice, Homer's Odyssey, Plato's Ion and Apology, and Sophocles' Oedipus Rex in the original Ancient Greek.

I can also help you to speak conversational Ancient Greek and to write Ancient Greek. My techniques can help with both comprehension and production.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
