Sessions Geared to Individual's Motivation and Learning Style

As a result of my studies in European History (with one of two concentrations in ancient history) I did a wide variety of readings in ancient authors. During my course of study I read primary source material from authors such as Plutarch, Polybius, Herodotus, and Livy. The most important skill anyone can acquire, and the one almost ignored by most institutes of learning, is how to learn. Some emphasize the old-fashioned ?drill and kill? methodology while others latch on to every sort of new trend or fashionable system. In trying to reinvent the wheel or build a better mousetrap, they forget a [more]

I completed college courses in the Classics. This included 2 years (4 semesters) of Ancient Greek as my language requirement, during which I read much of Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey" in the original Attic Greek. Hi!

UCSD grad, credentialed English teacher, published author, editor

As a student of both history and literature (B.A. in English and Comparative Literature), I have a strong academic knowledge of classic literature from Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey" to Ovid's "Metamorphoses" to the Norse story of "Beowulf". I have taught these subjects, written essays on them, and studied the mythology behind them. However, a scholar cannot separate the actual history of those and other civilizations, from ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt to as far west as Mesoamerica, if he or she is to truly appreciate the classics. Now I even write historical fiction novels on such broad topic [more]
