A common hurdle in learning the Classics is the long task of learning the language before you can enjoy all the brilliant and moving literature it has to offer. Sometimes students are even told they are "bad at" a language, before they have had the chance to achieve small accomplishments and look forward to bigger ones.

The way into Latin and Greek is confidence through mastering the building blocks of the languages, enjoying the "strategy game" aspect of translation, and learning how to understand a thrilling culture and literature which is much closer to our own than we often realize.

I studied Latin, Greek, and Classical Arabic at Oxford University in the UK and achieved an Oxford MA, Second Class First Division with an Open Exhibition Merit Scholarship. During the course of my studies, I was required to research and read the works of Homer, Herodotos, Thucydides, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato, Catullus, Cicero, Caesar, Lucretius, Propertius, Tibullus, Ovid, Vergil, Livy, Tacitus, Horace, Seneca, St. Jerome, and St. Augustine.

I have taught dozens of students ranging from 4 to 64 years old, and have discovered that the secret weapon in successful tutoring is true passion for the subject material. It means I'm thrilled every time one of my students begins to understand a grammar concept or reads alone, and that enthusiasm for both small victories and language and literature that is yet to be studied is contagious.
