PhD student offering Classical Greek, Latin and Classical Civilisation lessons up to BA level

Methodology

Classical Greek and Latin are notoriously difficult languages, featuring much more inflection, conjugation and syntactical complexity than English. In order to translate these languages successfully, two things are required: good grammatical knowledge as well as the right mindset and methodology to decrypt the meaning of a sentence in these ancient languages. It is possible to have a comprehensive knowledge of the grammar but to struggle with the translation of unabridged texts. I teach my students strategies to handle the complex word order of these ancient languages. Of course, I also make sure that the student has a thorough knowledge of grammatical and syntactical rules so that translation is, as far as possible, a logical act of problem solving rather than mere guesswork.

The ancient texts are full of life and, in my opinion, of significant relevance to modern life. In discussing a set text, a student will become aware of how the reward of being able to read and learn from these ancient texts is worth the linguistic struggle.

Experience

I'm a PhD student with an MA from the Sorbonne and a BA from Cambridge (all in Classics) with five years' experience of private tutoring.

I am passionate about my subject and am able to instill this in my students. If you're looking to pass an exam, I will make sure that you, or your child, succeed!
