Classics

Cambridge Coaching has put together a small, erudite team of Classics PhD candidates who are outstanding teachers. Our tutors are dedicated polyglots who love teaching the nuts and bolts of the languages (morphology, syntax, meter, and more), but who are no less passionate about the literature, history, and culture of the Greeks and Romans.

For students interested in learning or improving their Latin or Greek, supplementing a course with additional instruction, or preparing for the AP exam, we offer unparalleled expertise. We can also help with college and graduate courses for those who want to expand their knowledge of Antiquity.  Whether you find yourself puzzled by the ablative case, befogged by the difference between Attic and Homeric Greek, or confused by the chaos of the Republic's last years, our tutors are excited to share their knowledge and experience with you.

In all tutorials, we take a highly structured and personalized approach to ensure that our students receive the most effective and comprehensive tutoring available.

Popular Subjects: Greek, Latin, Greek History, Roman History
Tests: AP Latin: Vergil, SAT II Latin
