About NIKOLAS

Cambridge scholar with Oxford teaching experience.

I attended Bronx High School of Science, where I received my first formal training in Latin, before moving on to take an undergraduate double major in Classics at Fordham University. Graduating summa cum laude, I read for the MPhil in Classics at the University of Cambridge through the generosity of the Beinecke and Gates-Cambridge scholarships.

In my university career, I have had experience teaching, lecturing, and tutoring at both the under- and postgraduate levels, as well as for students in high school. After completing my MPhil, I taught two courses at Oriel College, Oxford: Military History and Latin Language and Literature. I find facilitating student engagement with the Humanities to be personally enriching and deeply rewarding.

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.

Classics

I graduated summa cum laude with a double major in Classical Civilization and Classical Languages from Fordham University before taking up a postgraduate degree in Classics at the University of Cambridge. For my achievements in the field of Classics, I earned both the Beinecke and Gates-Cambridge scholarships to support my postgraduate study. I have also served in several Classical outreach programs, e.g. as President of Fordham's chapter of the National Honorary Classics Society.
