About Zak


Bio

As a life-long student, I love learning. I enjoy learning myself, and I find it extremely rewarding to help others in their learning. Throughout my life, I have especially found joy in learning languages, and Latin and Greek are no exception. These fascinating languages unlock the past for us, and the ability to read an ancient text (without having to consult a translation) is a real joy, and honestly fun!

As a life-long student, I love learning. I enjoy learning myself, and I find it extremely rewarding to help others in their learning. Throughout my life, I have especially found joy in learning languages, and Latin and Greek are no exception. These fascinating languages unlock the past for us, and the ability to read an ancient text (without having to consult a translation) is a real joy, and honestly fun!

I am currently a PhD researcher, which means I have had significant experience with Classics, especially Latin and Greek. In addition to taking numerous classes in Latin and Greek and reading classical texts on my own, I have also had significant experience tutoring Latin and Greek, even while I was an undergraduate. This has helped me develop as an effective and compassionate teacher.

Having been on both sides of the process, I understand the challenges of learning languages, especially Latin and Greek. I know what it takes to learn an ancient language, and this enables me to become a more effective and helpful teacher. My goal is not simply for my students to be able to just pass an exam or be able to regurgitate information, but I want to help them feel confident reading the texts they want to read and understand how the language works - and to be excited about it!

Although I am primarily a language and literature tutor, I also have a broader knowledge base of the classical world, such as in history and philosophy. As such, I am also excited to help others understand the Greek and Roman worlds in all their facets.

If you are looking for a tutor who understands the process of learning Greek and Latin and who is excited to help you in your own learning path, please reach out to me! I am happy to help you, no matter what stage you are at or what difficulties you are facing. If you have any questions, let me know!

Classics

Classics

As a PhD student in Classics, I have been learning Latin and Ancient Greek for years. I have also taught both languages to individual students, paying particular attention to learning needs and individual difficulties with the languages. As someone who has both been taught these languages recently and who has been a tutor for years, I am well-suited to help others learn Latin and Greek. Additionally, I have a firm grasp on ancient Greek and Roman history and am able to enable others to understand this fascinating subject well.
