Excellent course in a friendly, enthusiastic group! We studied the grammar but our teacher also introduced us to areas of Greek history and thought so we enjoyed a well-rounded course.

Tutor Biographies
Andrew David

I graduated in Classics and trained as a Language and Classics teacher at Pembroke College Oxford and at Exeter University. I have forty years' experience as an English Language teacher and Programme Manager in Further Education. Since 2000 I have worked as a Tour Guide for English Language students at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. At the British Museum I also offer workshops for children on Ancient Greek and Egyptian Life, and I have taught on the Museum's Iraq Emergency Programme training Iraqi Archaeologists. I have taught Classics in Primary and Secondary schools and privately since 1983, and I have been a Tutor in Classics at City Lit since 2012. At City Lit I teach Latin and Greek classes both at Keeley Street and as part of the City Lit's partnership with the British Museum. I am currently leading a project to record an audio facility for the Cambridge University Press 2016 edition of Reading Latin - the course-book used in most City Lit Latin courses. I try to include speaking and listening work in my classes, thus following the students' stated preference for hearing how we think Latin and Greek were spoken in Classical times.
