Eccentric and Lovable Historian of Politics and Ideas

I studied Latin for two years while in college and regularly hold reading sessions in the language. In terms of classical history, much of my training as a historian has been in that period. I am certainly quite capable of holding my own in a conversation spanning Greco-Roman intellectual history. Do you need someone to ignite your child's interest in learning? I taught European History at the university level as well as in high school so I understand what it takes to make the transition from one to the other. My method of tutoring focuses on analyzing texts as opposed to the brute memorizatio [more]

Local Teacher Available for Private Tutoring

I have six years experience as a grade school Latin teacher and an advanced degree in Classics from The Johns Hopkins University. As a classicist and educator, I use derivatives and cognates to increase vocabulary skill in the English language; I incorporate history and other disciplines as well. My goal is to offer students learning tools so that they will become globally competitive learners who make connections across subject areas in life outside the classroom. As a middle school and high school Latin teacher, my first love is teaching the ancient tongue. The Latin language is the basis fo [more]

British Photographer

I studied Classics at college. In England, where I studied, we do not "major" or "minor", nor do we do general education at college. I arrived and from day one studied Classics and just Classics all day every day, for a total of three years (standard course length in the UK). I finished with a 2:1 (the second highest grade possible, with a "First" being almost unattainable, a 2:1 being very good, and a 2:2 being where most students end up. Louis is a British photographer based in Echo Park, Los Angeles. Equally comfortable shooting film or digital, Percival has a keen eye and a true sense [more]

Friendly English Teacher with a Master's in Humanities

I have a master's degree in humanities, which requires that the student immerse themselves in at least a sampling of classical knowledge. In addition, I am a credentialed language arts teacher which requires that I be able to teach seminal literature. I am particularly partial to the following works: Gilgamesh; The Illiad; The Odyssey; and The Metamorphosis. Over the last six years, I have worked as a private tutor, a high-school English teacher, a university teaching assistant, and as a grant writer for an educational non-profit organization. My teaching abilities have become quite dynamic fr [more]

Paper-writing, Reading comprehension, SAT, Video & Graphic Design

The University of Chicago, where I graduated with a BA with honors, requires every BA student to pass through a rigorous Classics program. In these courses, I studied Plato's Republic, the Illiad and Aeneid (I studied the Odyssey in high school), Greek and Roman history and the surrounding cultural-historical contexts for these classic works, as well as early Christian thinkers (I took a course on Augustine's 'Confessions', for instance). Throughout all this time, I engaged deeply with the material and never got less than a B+ in any course. [more]

Math, Science, and English Tutor, College Counselor.

I took Latin for 3 years in high school and 1 year in college, and my studies included cultural, literary, and historical knowledge of Ancient Rome and Greece. At USC, I was enrolled in the Honors Core Curriculum, which included a Classics course taught by Dr. Carolyn DeWald. The English Literature degree I completed at USC also required a strong knowledge of the Classics. As a USC Trojan alum, I take pride in having a fairly thorough knowledge of the Aeneid, Iliad, and Odyssey, the 3 great epics that surround the Trojan War. I've been an unabashed admirer of Roman and Greek mythology sinc [more]

The Renaissance tutor: for the humanities and sciences

I have a passion for the classics in many genres of literature, spanning from fiction and non-fiction works, to theology and philosophy, to science. Throughout my time at Westmont, I led students in discussions and helped them with their papers on classical literature in all areas of academics (everything from Jane Eyre to Helmholtz's paper on the speed of nervous conduction). As a tutor, I help students deconstruct arguments, critically evaluate the material and themes, wrestle with the worldviews of the authors, and verbalize their position on the author's arguments and voice their own opi [more]
