Ian Murray

Ian has been teaching Latin & ancient Greek at the Citylit for 13 years, and before that taught youngsters in the independent sector. He qualified with a degree in Classics from King's College, London and says: 'In any one class at a school you might have only a handful who really want to study your subject, but here at the Citylit everyone in the class is there because they wish to be - learning purely for pleasure. People work well, in classes with a strong sense of loyalty, independent of syllabuses, and at the class's own pace. People I meet connected with Classics are amazed to hear that we have over 35 language classes a week. All this makes for a unique selling point. Ian takes one advanced Latin class as well as three of Greek, and outside the College he is a member of a team translating the letters of Marsilio Ficino of Florence, the Renaissance Platonist.
