    Teaching Approach

    I can provide a number of different tailor-made courses depending on your needs. If you are based in Toronto like I am we can meet-up for lessons (Downtown preferable). If you live father away there is always skype.

    Program Description

    I have a PhD in Latin and Ancient Greek and I've been teaching Latin both to private pupils and university students since 1992. I have published translations both from Latin and into Latin and have won an Italian prize for one of my poems in Latin. I speak English, French, German, Russian and Italian and in consequence can teach Latin in whichever of these languages is more comfortable for you.
    Any level of Latin you require is fine by me, I enjoy teaching it. My special interests: ancient Roman cuisine (workshops available), history of Latin words in modern languages, Roman poetry. If you require Ancient Greek too I could oblige. Omnia bona feliciaque!

    Teaching Experience
