Dr David Walker


Melbourne tutor in Latin

(3 student reviews)

I am highly qualified academically. I have an expert knowledge of Latin and a proven record of success as a teacher of the subject.

My qualifications include a first-class honours MA and a PhD in Latin. Moreover, I am an established scholar in my field. My key contribution is considered to be two critical editions and annotated translations of Renaissance Latin texts, published in 2017 and 2022 by E.J. Brill, one of the world’s foremost academic publishers. Copies of my books are held in the major British, European, and American university libraries.

I have taught Latin for over fifteen years across all year levels and have a thorough working knowledge of the VCE Latin syllabus and assessment requirements. Following a career at the University of Melbourne, where I was in turn a teacher of history, dean of a university college, and a senior faculty administrator, I taught VCE Latin at Melbourne Grammar School before taking up a position at Xavier College where I am currently teaching VCE Latin and Classical Greek.

I have been a VCAA Assessor for the VCE Latin written examination since 2018 and am a former member of the VCAA Latin Examination Development Panel. I have regularly tutored VCE Latin students from a range of schools since 2004. These have included several of the highest-performing students in the State. I have also on occasion successfully prepared students for the Oxford University Classics Admissions Test.

I am available to tutor students at all year levels.



I have been tutoring students in Latin since 2004.
