I'm currently completing my Ph.D. in Classics at New York University, writing a dissertation that focuses primarily on Latin rhetoric in the early Roman Empire. During my time at NYU, I have taught, amongst other things, undergraduate Introductory and Intermediate Latin, Roman Imperial History, and a course that read Classical Greek and Roman texts in translation together with contemporary Science Fiction. I have delivered papers both in the United States and in Europe, and have won a number of academic grants that have allowed me conduct my research in Berlin and New York. I have made reading, analyzing, and teaching Latin and Greek literature and language my career, but I've never forgotten to enjoy and appreciate it every step of the way.

Whether it is Latin, Greek, literature, or writing, I bring the same level of personalization and individualization to each of my students. One thing that I have learned in my years of teaching and tutoring is that every student is different, and it is incumbent on me to find the best, most effective way communicating a lesson. It is this creative and adaptive element of teaching that I think is missing in so many pedagogic methods, and one that I like to highlight in my own approach.

As a Ph.D. candidate in Classics at New York University writing a dissertation on Cicero, I read, translate, and analyze Latin on a daily basis. I have extensive experience designing and teaching university Latin courses, as well as tutoring students at the middle and high school levels. I'm comfortable working at any level of instruction, from beginners to advanced students, as well as with the most common Latin textbooks. In my courses and tutoring sessions, I also like to give particular focus to actual, real Latin as a supplement to sentences simply pulled from textbooks.

In addition to language instruction at NYU, I have also taught courses that covered Classical reception and thought in 19th Century Literature, and most recently developed a course that read Classical Latin and Greek texts together with modern Science Fiction in order to draw out parallel thematic elements. The ability to closely read a text, analyze it, and construct an argument both verbally and in writing are essential aspects in every subject I teach. Developing these skills, of course, pay huge dividends for countless future careers, and give middle and high school students a significant leg-up when taking standardized tests and writing college entrance exams.

In addition to my Latin language instruction, I have taught college courses on Classical mythology, Roman history, and have lectured extensively on topics ranging from Greek tragedy, Roman poetry, and archaeology.

I'm currently completing my Ph.D. in Classics at NYU, where I reached ABD status in the Fall of 2015. I have been studying Ancient Greek since 2007, have read extensively in Aristophanes, Plato, Herodotus, and the Lyric poets, and have passed a number of qualifying exams en route to my Ph.D. From a pedagogical standpoint, I prefer the hard-grammatical approaches of Hansen and Quinn, not only because it is the text that I used when learning Greek, but also as it does not hide difficult grammatical material from students at the early stages of the book when students are most eager and willing to tackle challenging material.
