-Latin and Ancient Greek with a Cambridge Graduate-

I offer tutoring up to university level (in Latin) and secondary-school level (in Greek), based around the John Taylor JACT courses, but with the freedom to go wherever the student wants. I favour the use of real ancient texts where possible, and at higher levels encourage genuine engagement with literature as something to be read and enjoyed, not just studied.

I hold a Masters in Classics from the University of Cambridge (Gonville and Caius College, 2018) and have worked with some of the most prominent classicists in the world, including Richard Hunter and Mary Beard. This is the experience I am able to give back, by offering a truly informed form of classical tuition.

Extra information

Lessons are taught in English. I am currently studying Philosophy at KUL, so lesson times availability changes week-to-week.

I led the Creative Writing Society at my undergraduate university, and continue to write fiction alongside my academic work. I am always enthusiastic to help people in any area I can, especially those in which I am trained, and genuinely enjoy seeing people improve under my tutelage.

Experience / Qualifications

I have taught undergraduate languages throughout my courses, and as President of the Creative Writing Society taught fiction writing to classes of university students.

Reviews (1)

Charlie is very attentive teacher, open to explain all the details of language. He provides good exercises for pronunciation. Nice to improve English with him.
This class is for students of all ages. I teach students how to write assured and professional essays for their academic courses, ranging from undergraduate- to PhD-level. Students will learn not only the language itself, but also the conventions and styles particular to English-language writing, and how to properly introduce and structure their work. I will also proofread students' final theses for a discounted rate, provided we have met for more than five hours. I am a native English speaker from London, England. I hold an MA from Exeter, and an MPhil from Cambridge, both in Classics, and am currently studying for an MA at KU Leuven in Philosophy. I have written dozens of highly-graded essays in this time, winning several prizes, and have helped peers to similar success. I have also been a part-time professional proofreader for three years.

Cogito ergo sum. La bellezza della lingua e letteratura latina
Nel latino risiedono le radici non solo delle lingue romanze, ma anche della cultura europea. Imparare questa lingua e la sua letteratura può essere una sfida estremamente arricchente ed entusiasmante. Le mie lezioni mirano ad offrire gli strumenti per tradurre e apprezzare al meglio i testi latini, sottolineando come parole e strutture latine sono tutt'ora vive nelle lingue moderne.

Latin & Ancient Greek classes by Classical Philologue
Let's start by declensions and so on. We'll discover the verbal tenses and how is a phrase done. You don't know the slight aspects unless have studied how Ancient Greek's verbs work, or the Ancient Indian. So, if we can translate texts (at first easier ones, the the original), we could reach anywhere in the vast world around the Roman Empire. Latin is the basis for the Romance languages. And Greek is more usual between us than you could imagine (Medicine, over all). You could structure your mind as the ancient did! They are the "little box" where you can put in whatever you want. It also provides a manner to live and to work in order to know the essential tasks and the rest.

Claire-Sybille
to learn ancient Greek or biblical Greek, course of support
Learning ancient Greek opens to the roots of our western way of thinking, philosophy, logic, and also gives insights into the functioning of our modern languages. Learning Biblical Greek gives access to the reading of New Testament texts in the original language, which makes it possible to get closer to the way of thinking and speaking about the time. Reading in the original language allows you to discover a deeper meaning to the text that we read "from always" This reading offers a freshness of reading and opens a world of meaning.
