Greek,

Greek

I have been studying Ancient Greek since 2007. I tutored in the subject from 2009 to 2013 at Texas A&M University, although I only began to be paid for it in 2011. I graduated magna cum laude from that same university with a Classics degree focusing on Greek, continuing afterward with a Master's program at The University of Nottingham where I studied ancient history and continued studying Greek. Most recently, I taught beginner's Greek to a struggling high-school student when his instructor, who was also my high-school Greek instructor, referred him to me.
