If you came from a wealthy Roman family at the time of the Emperor Hadrian you would have had a private tutor to teach you.
Boys would have been taught how to be good speakers. Being able to speak well in public was considered very important in Ancient Rome. Other subjects would have included reading writing and counting. Later if the family could afford it studies continued in Greek, and the study of literature.
Girls from the wealthier Roman families would have been taught to spin wool, weave cloth and sew. As they could not take part in public life it was not thought necessary for them to receive the same education as boys.
Children from poorer Roman families would have been taught by their parents at home. If the dad could read and write he would teach his sons to be able to do the same. Mum would take responsibility for passing on her skills to the daughters of the family.
Slave children would have received no education other than what was necessary for them to be trained for work for their Roman masters.
