Learn Ancient Greek: Belfast-based tutor with 10+ years experience, educated to Masters level at QUB.

Methodology

I believe that learning happens best in an informal, encouraging and supportive environment. I am enthusiastic about my subject and aim to make learning fun and enjoyable. Together, we will identify areas of particular need and lessons will be tailored accordingly.

Background

I began studying Ancient Greek at university and I love being able to read ancient texts in the original language!
My Bachelors degree is from the Open University (Humanities with Classical Studies), and my Masters (Classics and Ancient History) is from Queen's University Belfast. I teach Classical Greek to adults at my own classes and at the Belfast Summer School in Latin and Classical Greek of which I am the founder and co-ordinator. I am chair of the Classical Association in Northern Ireland and vice-chair of the Classical Association of Ireland. I am based in east Belfast.
I have taught at summer workshops at the University of Trinity St David at Lampeter (Wales) and have been an Open Learning Tutor at Queen's University Belfast. I teach Greek at Intermediate level at the Belfast Summer School in Latin and Classical Greek, and to a group of adults in Belfast.

Helen's resume

Helen McVeigh, MA (QUB), BA (Hons) (Open)

Chair of the Classical Association in Northern Ireland and vice-chair of the Classical Association of Ireland.

Tutor in Classical Greek (2014 – present): I teach Classical Greek to adults at all levels. Presently I teach weekly Classical Greek classes for adults at beginners and intermediate level, and GCSE classes to a small group of KS3 students.

Co-ordinator and Language Tutor, Belfast Summer School in Latin and Classical Greek (2015-present): Having taught at summer schools in Wales and England, I aspired to bring the excitement and enthusiasm of a summer school in ancient languages to Belfast. The first summer school was held in July 2015 in University Road Moravian church hall. The course lasted one week and classes were held in Classical Greek. The fourth summer school will be held in Queen’s University Belfast and will offer nine days of classes and lectures. Lessons are available at beginners, intermediate and advanced level in Latin and Classical Greek.
