Hi, I’m Dr. Seumas Macdonald.


I have been studying, and teaching, both Latin and Ancient Greek for over 20 years, with a focus on active, communicative methods. I hold a PhD in Ancient History, focused in early Christian theology. And I'm here to help you read and understand ancient texts with the ease that a fluent speaker would.
