Latin, Greek and Classics Tutoring on-line by British Academic

I specialise in teaching Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation, from beginners to university level. I have degrees from the University of York and Middlesex University, and I have been teaching Classics since 1992.

My approach is to focus on reading skills rather than abstract teaching of grammar and syntax. Greek and Latin are human languages, in which humans wrote to communicate what the considered important truths. The languages are best learnt by studying simplified versions of these important truths, and by proceeding by stages to their original utterances.

About Me

My approach to teaching the ancient languages is based on reading proficiency. I like to immerse students from the start in simplified texts. This turns learning the grammar from a chore of memorising abstract rules to finding solutions to specific difficulties. There is, of course, an irreducible minimum of things that must be thoroughly learned, and i do encourage learning these things. For many things, however, telling students that they exist and where to find them as required is a good alternative to memorisation. They then go into the mind insensibly through repeated encounter and use. I can take those students who are willing to put in regular effort from zero to basic reading proficiency within a few months.

Education

PhD, Middlesex University, Associate Fellow, Higher Education Academy (UK Government awarding body), Certificate in Academic Practice, Canterbury Christ Church University.

Justyna
Ancient Greek lessons with FUN and passion : preparation for school / university assignments / exams
I am a native speaker of Greek. I graduated from a Greek high school and, later, the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and spelling. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Greek, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/understand grammar/syntax. - I would love to help you with commentaries/translations of : 1.Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, 2.Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Sappho, 3.Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon. - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university.
