About Me

I am currently an enthusiastic PhD student in Classics at the University of Manchester. I have completed my Masters degree in Classics with Distinction at UCL (University College London), from where I also received my Bachelors degree with First Class Honours in 2015.

During my PhD and Masters I have been working with Greek papyri extensively. I have completed numerous linguistic modules (Greek Texts, Latin Texts, History of the Latin Language, Greek Papyrology, Greek Translation, Latin Translation, Latin Palaeography, History of Greek and Dialects of the Greek Literature). This knowledge enables me to teach Ancient Greek and Latin languages at all levels. As both my PhD and Masters focused on papyrology, I have great experience in some specific disciplines of classical studies, such as papyrology and palaeography. Besides the study of ancient languages I also enjoy studying and teaching Ancient History, Greek Tragedy, Greek Myth and Roman Comedy.

I always aim to organise the lessons according to the needs and level of each pupil, as no two pupils are the same. Each tutorial focuses on learning needs and aims of the individuals with structured lesson plans. Grammar and vocabulary are essential parts of learning Latin and Ancient Greek - I pay very great attention to these skills and aim to improve them in an interactive, productive and interesting way. I use various materials to make the lessons interesting and very educational at the same time. I always discuss the goals and expectation of each student, as well as giving feedback about the progress they have made.
