Classicist and Linguist with experience in four years experience in Ancient (Koine, Attic, and Byzantine) Greek and college level.

Methodology

I tailor my teaching to what is most useful to the student. A successful tutor will match the students learning style with what the student needs to learn, streamlining useful information. It is imperative that a tutor understand why the student is interested in the subject, and what a student wants to get out of their time with said tutor.

Background

I have taught, done assistant teaching, and tutored for the last seven years in a variety of institutions (private tutoring, online ESL work, private schools, camps, and churches) and appreciate the opportunity to share what I have learned with others.
