Durham University Lecturer: Tuition in Classics and English
I am a Teaching Fellow in Latin Literature in the Department of Classics and Ancient History at Durham University, where I have also held the positions of Lecturer in Classics and Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Alongside my teaching responsibilities, at Durham I have also supervised dissertations, performed the role of student Academic Advisor, and served on the undergraduate admissions team. I hold a Bachelor's degree with First Class honours, a Master's, and a PhD in Classics from University College London (including a period as a visiting doctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley).
I am committed to creating an exciting and interactive learning environment that is tailored to the individual needs of the student. Above all, my training and experience have taught me the value of engaging students as active participants in the learning process, and of cultivating a positive, encouraging, and creative approach to their studies.
I have extensive experience of teaching students of all ages, both as a private tutor and as an instructor at the Universities of Durham and London. Drawing on teaching experience in Classics, I am able to offer tailored programmes of study in any area of the discipline, including (but not limited to) Latin and ancient Greek language and literature, Classical Civilisation, ancient history, and ancient philosophy, as well as give more general advice on essay structure, revision, and improving writing style and argument. For current and prospective university students in Classics I can also help with personal statements, undergraduate essays, and Master's and PhD theses. In addition, I am able to offer tuition in English Language and Literature at GCSE and A-level with any of the major exam boards.
My own academic specialisms are in Latin literature, ancient philosophy, and Classical epic, although I have also worked and published extensively in the field of Classical reception. These are subjects which I am happy to teach in detail to students at any level.
