About Jesica

Jesica L. is a graduate of North Carolina State University’s MA program in Ancient History with a BA in Spanish Language and Literature, Middle East Studies, and Anthropology.

Jesica currently works as an independent researcher, continuing her master’s thesis research on pre-Roman and Roman period society in the island of Crete. She also serves as managing editor of Mashriq & Mahjar: Journal of Middle East Migration Studies, a publication of the Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies at North Carolina State University. Jesica also provides private lessons in Spanish, Latin, and Ancient Greek to students of all levels.

Jesica’s passion for learning and sharing knowledge has led to her involvement in a number of projects as part of the Digital Humanities movement. She is a Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC) fellow and served as a communications fellow for the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) between 2014 and 2015. She is also the creator and chief editor of AntiquorumHistory.com (a collaborative blog about history and archaeology), and she is also the creator and producer of ArchaeoCast (a podcast devoted to bringing history and archaeology to the public, forthcoming 2016).

I bring several years of study and experience in archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean world to my lessons. My experience covers both laboratory work and excavations in the eastern, central, and western Mediterranean region. If you are learning to learn more about ancient Greece, Rome, or the Medieval periods, I can help!

My students find my lessons both fun and intellectually stimulating. I bring many years of study not only of the languages themselves, but also of their history and the cultures that use them to my lessons.

I introduce students to the entire ancient world in which the Classics were written, beyond the language, rhetoric, and history. Students learn to appreciate and love the Classics as snapshots of the ancient societies in which they took place.

If you are looking for a passionate teacher who can show you the fun and fascinating sides of history, foreign languages, and the Classics, please contact me to schedule your first session!

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.

I have recently completed my Master's degree in Ancient History and Archaeology. I also have several years of experience volunteering on archaeological sites and projects as a graduate student. I have both formal course training and field experience in this area as well as experience teaching it as a Teaching Assistant at North Carolina State University for 3 years.

Classics

My Master's degree in Ancient History and Archaeology included as part of the course work at least 3 years in ancient Greek and Latin.

I also have several years of experience teaching in these areas as a Teaching Assistant for North Carolina State University.
