"Mr. Kopf is a master of Greek, and Latin. He speaks both fluently, with Greek as the crown jewel. He is not at but in fact he is the cutting edge of spoken-Greek instruction. He is one of the most organized and dedicated teachers I’ve ever met. I am privileged to have been his student myself. He loves his students and gives them the best teaching there is." – Charles Carman, M.A.

Michael Kopf, M.A.
Michael Kopf received his MA in Ancient Philology in 2015 from the Polis Institute in Jerusalem after completing undergraduate studies in Classics at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and at the University of Vienna. He has working knowledge of 9 languages, and has been teaching Classical Greek and Latin for the last 5 years. He has taught classical languages to middle- and high-school students and graduate students, both through immersion and in more conventional settings, in Rome, Vienna and Jerusalem, and has also taught teacher training courses in Rome and Jerusalem.
He enjoys rediscovering the ancient world and its reception, especially the history of classical education, grammar and linguistics. He recently settled in rural Austria with his wife and is eager to continue sharing his enthusiasm for antiquity and language learning through online teaching. In this way, he hopes to contribute towards making classical studies more accessible.
