About Malina

I studied Classics (Greek and Latin) at Yale. My particular passion is for Greek poetry. I also love theatre: ancient and modern!

I have taught a class on the modern adaptations of Greek tragedy, helped teach Latin to elementary and middle school students, taught ESL and worked as a private tutor. I care very much that my students feel connected to the material. I want to know what your interests are and to help you see how they tie into what we are studying. There are often many more, and stronger, connections than you would expect.

I have studied the history of Greek and Latin and have a deep understanding of how they relate to each other as well as to modern languages. I bring that deep understanding to bear even when teaching simple grammar.

I have always loved to read and write and had the good fortune to take many many literature classes in college. I believe that the first step in reading--whether for fun, or on a reading comprehension test, or to write an essay--is to allow yourself emotional responses to what you are reading and then to work to understand them.

I hope we'll have the chance to work together. Contact me to schedule lessons.

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.

Greek

I took eleven Greek courses in college, including many graduate seminars. I received an 'A' on my undergraduate department's comprehensive exam.
