Biography:

Declan grew up in Australia after spending four years of his early life in France. He attended Gordon West Public School from Year 1 to Year 6 and finished as Dux of the school. Declan then studied at Barker College from Year 7 and graduated as Dux of the school in 2020. Declan has always pursued all possible avenues for his interests, which induced him to learn Ancient Greek and Sanskrit during high school, at the same time as leading his peers in the school robotics team and maintaining an excellent academic standard. He continues to follow his interests beyond high school and is currently studying Mathematics and Ancient Greek at the University of Sydney.

When he is not tutoring, Declan spends his time moving through the literary canon (he is currently in the middle of reading The Brothers Karamazov). He always enjoys learning new things and is trying to pick up another language or two on the side: he has set his sights on French and Middle Egyptian.
