Classics graduate offering Latin and Greek lessons and help with essay writing

Methodology

I can give Latin and Greek lessons at any level, from complete beginners to reading Ancient texts. I can also teach you about Ancient History, especially the Late Republican Period/Early Empire and Archaic and Classical Greece, and Classics topics such as Greek Tragedy, Vase Painting and Greek and Roman life.

I myself have struggled with essay writing, so I believe I am well placed to help other students whose grades are being held back by their writing skills.

Experience

I have a Master's Degree in Classics and an Honours Degree in Italian. I have been learning Latin for more than ten years and Greek for over five. I have experience in tutoring Latin and Italian, as well as a great deal of knowledge of essay writing.
