I taught at Winchester for 35 years, for 25 of them as Head of the Classics Department, and more recently as Senior Tutor. Throughout my career I have been heavily involved in public examining, most recently as chairman of the committee which developed the Greek and Latin syllabuses for Cambridge Pre-U, and as Chief Examiner in Greek for that qualification. I am a regular tutor at the JACT Greek Summer School and at Cambridge University’s Institute of Continuing Education at Madingley Hall, a Vice-President of the Southampton Branch of the CA, and sit on the Editorial Committee of the Bristol Classical Press, an imprint of Bloomsbury Academic.
My specialist interests include Language and Language Teaching, Epic Poetry (I am working on an edition of Iliad XVI), Lyric Poetry and Roman Letter-Writing.
Greek and Latin Language, Epic and Lyric Poetry.
My primary teaching duties are with New College Classics undergraduates, either in groups or individually. I provide reading classes, practice in unseen translation, and instruction in Prose and Verse Composition, the latter only if requested.
