Oliver Whetstone

Ancient Greek in New York City | Ancient Language Institute

Hi! My name is Oliver Whetstone, an Ancient Greek and Latin Fellow at ALI and I am excited to teach you an ancient language! I recently completed my undergraduate degree in Classics and Philosophy at Harvard University in 2018, and an MSt in Ancient Philosophy at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford in 2020, where I specialized in Ancient Logic. After graduating, I taught Ancient Greek for Jesus and Harris Manchester Colleges, Oxford, and co-founded Oxford Latinitas Ltd, a company set up by people who met through Classics at Oxford to provide Active Method language teaching in ancient Greek and Latin, before moving on to the Ancient Language Institute. Currently, I am back in NYC, working on founding a similar society at Princeton University.
