The Art of Language and the Language of Art

In addition to having familiarity with the classical repertoire in drama, I also know and enjoy teaching my students to appreciate classical non-dramatic literature as well, such as Homer, Chaucer, and Dante. I enjoy discovering with them the beauty of the classic American canon, such as Poe, O. Henry, Melville, Twain and Dickinson. Furthermore, I delight in working with my students to understand the modern classics, such as Orwell, Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, Lee, and Hurston, plus many others. In addition to helping my students comprehend the unique way in which the author(s) utilizes figurati [more]

I have a Bachelor's degree in Classical Cultures. I have read many of the classics since obtaining my degree.

Tutor -- Writing, SAT Test Prep, History, French, Latin, German

I have helped numerous students read, critique, and express their views on a broad range of classic works. My degrees are in History, and I have specialized in intellectual currents, including the original meaning and enduring significance of the greatest literature. Classic epics, mythology, history, philosophy, poetry, plays, and novels are both timeless and time-bound, meaning across time and meaning in times: in the times they first appeared and in later times when they are read and discussed anew.

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]
