"One outstanding Latin tutor"
Rozie from Essex Fells, NJ on 6/10/12
My son was tutored by Karl to help him study for his Latin finals through skype. My son learned more in 5 sessions than he learned the entire year! My son after these sessions finally had his love for Latin back!
Karl is outstanding. He is interactive and made studying Latin fun. My son asked for Karl to tutor him throughout the year next year. We are also going to have Karl tutor this summer. We had a latin tutor throughout this year and I have to tell you I wish we had found Karl sooner. Karl was also so accommodating, he went out on his own and ordered extra books and materials not even knowing if we would continue with him.
I soooo highly recommend Karl!!

My son had an optimistic view that he could understand Latin after one hour with Karl. My son was certain he might fail the subject. However, Karl taught him a lot in one hour and gave him the necessary confidence to feel he could do well on upcoming tests.
"Fantastic Latin Teacher"
Suma from Belvedere Tiburon, CA on 11/10/13
My son was a good student in Latin through his sophomore years. His teacher decided to advance him to the AP Latin class in his Junior year. At this point my son felt a little challenged with the material and I reached out to Karl to help him. With Karl's help he was able to keep up with the advanced material and performed well on all his tests. Karl is a meticulous and patient teacher and always took the time to make sure my son had mastered the material. Towards the end of his Junior year my son felt real comfortable with Latin and decided to take the AP Latin test. Karl helped him prepare for the test and my son ended up with a score of 5 in his AP Latin test. Thank you Karl for the wonderful job.
"Thank you for another great class"
Carmen from Berkeley, CA on 10/10/13
Karl is a great teacher and very knowledgeable. I am amazed at how much I have learned to date. Thank you Karl for another great class.
"My son is doing great in Latin now!!!"
Vicky from Franklin Lakes, NJ on 8/16/13
Karl started working with my son last year for 9th grade honors Latin. At that time, Latin was the subject that my son had the greatest difficulty with. Karl was very thorough and helped my son to master Latin concepts as well as solidify the new material that was being taught at a very rapid pace in his honors class. I am happy to say that at the end of the year, Latin has become my son's favorite subject, largely due to the confidence he gained in working with Karl.
"Very diligent and knowledgeable "
Lasha from Walnut Creek, CA on 8/8/13
Mr. G. is a very responsible tutor.
He was extremely thorough and detailed in his analyses of my assignment. He demonstrated an uncanny ability to quickly summarize my essays. He dramatically improved the style and grammar, and managed to help me express my views in a clear, written form.
Mr. G. is also very punctual. He replied very quickly to my inquiries and was available to answer additional grammar questions about my essays. He showed not just his ability to write, but also a value added capacity to answer general questions I had about writing and grammar.
In short, his help on my university admissions essays has helped me in getting accepted into a graduate program.
I would highly recommend Mr. G. as a tutor.
"An excellent Latin Teacher who actually knows his stuff!"
Arjun from Palo Alto, CA on 8/7/13
I took Latin with Karl for about 6 months. I went from knowing very little about Latin to eventually taking the SAT Latin Subject Test. Karl was an extremely focused tutor. Often times, when looking around for tutors, you will notice that most of them don't really know what they are doing. I tried a couple of lessons with other tutors, and they lacked a clear focus, and it seemed like I was doing the really teaching. Karl, on the other hand, is actually a true expert. From the first lesson its apparent that he is not only skilled in Latin, but that he is an expert teacher as well. Try a lesson - you can always stop if you don't like him, although I'm pretty confident you will be as impressed as I was. He is a really nice guy and tutor, and you won't regret learning with him!
Tom from Western Springs, IL on 8/7/13
Karl is a great tutor he helped me get through Latin III honors which was no easy task. He made things much easier to understand and also provided extra study aides to help me with very difficult concepts and or translations. I would recommend him highly and will use him again this upcoming year for Latin IV honors he's the best.
"Best Latin tutor I could ever imagine!"
Franz from Savage, MD on 7/23/13
I came to the US as an exchange student from Germany. Before that I took one year Latin in my German High School.
During my exchange year I got the idea to apply to a boarding school in Germany where I can finish my last three years of High School. The only problem was that the students there had to take Latin since fifth grade so their knowledge of Latin was much more sophisticated than mine.
Then I took Latin tutoring for about six months with Karl and learned much more than I could've ever learned in school. He looked at my knowledge and created an individual plan for me so that I can pass the Latin test that allows me to visit the boarding school.
Karl's modernized techniques by using video conferences made it much easier for me to meet whenever I had time. I'm sure this technique was at least as much efficient as personal tutoring. Even when I arrived back in Germany we had one or two video conferences that worked fabulously.
When I got the results of the test I had to take at the boarding school I was more than happy because after about six months (!!!) of Latin tutoring with Karl I had the same knowledge of the students who have taken Latin for five years!
Karl wasn't only a tutor for me but also a teacher since he was my only source I got the Latin knowledge from.
I encourage everyone to contact Karl not only if they struggle in school but also if they need to be taught Latin!
Donald from Martinsburg, WV on 5/27/13
Karl was a tremendous aid to my studies, and was very very patient. Great listener and instructor. Thank you so so much.
"Great Latin tutor!"
Larissa from Walnut Creek, CA on 5/24/13
My boys (8 and 11) really like Latin lessons with Karl. They call these lessons "fun"! I am very happy to see so much enthusiasm in their learning of Latin and I hope to continue working with Karl as long as we can.
Lizanne from Merchantville, NJ on 5/21/13
My son was failing his sophomore Latin class. With Karl, he not only turned his grades from failing to A's, he received the "Maximum cum laude" award in the National Latin Exam, only 1 of 2 students to do so in his Latin II class. Karl helped my son through the grammar and translation challenges of Latin II, so that he could succeed. We live on the east coast, and the skype-type interface worked great. Kudos to Karl from a relieved mother!
AmyskillsA from O Fallon, MO on 5/16/13
Last school year our son was failing Latin. He attended a class during the summer, but it didn't really help him. I knew that if he was to do well in Latin in the next school year he would need an excellent tutor. Thankfully we found one in Mr. G. Karl really knew how to work with our son. He was familiar with the textbook that was being used. It was very easy to use Skype as a communication tool. Best of all our son did well in Latin, getting A's and B's on most of his assignments. He finished the year with an A for the last trimester. I highly recommend Karl as a tutor.
"Great Latin teacher"
John from Rancho Cordova, CA on 5/1/13
Karl is a great Latin teacher and I have made a great deal of progress under his tutelage. He is patient and knows his subject very well.
Tina from Marietta, GA on 2/28/13
I was in panic mode when I contacted Karl because my son had an urgent need and I was afraid of not finding a good tutor in such short time. Karl immediately responded to my email and was able to help my son the 2nd day. The tutor session was very productive through internet. Karl's very patient and explains complicated concepts in simple way. My son got A’s on his assignment, quiz and test on the topic after 1 hour tutor session with Karl. Karl is a great tutor!!
"Karl is Amazing"
Sreevani from Centreville, VA on 2/27/13
Karl tutored my daughter Latin. He is Amazing! I don't regret choosing him even though he is not geographically located at the same place as us. His lessons are very effective and improved my daughter's Latin significantly. He is very patient with the kids. He sends Parents very detailed notes about what happened in the tutoring session. He listens to what my child's needs are and works from there. Overall I recommend Karl to any student doing Latin.
Debra from Brooklyn, NY on 2/1/13
Karl G. is a passionate tutor he takes him time dealing with my daughter. He teaches her test taking skills in dealing with Latin. Most of all he keeps me inform step by step on every lesson. Thank you.
"Great lesson as always - thanks!"
Kim from Medford, NJ on 1/10/13
Our daughter has limited time to receive tutoring due to a heavy sports schedule, but Karl's flexibility and targeted lessons really help her a lot with a tough subject. Thanks Karl!!
"What a find!!"
Brenda from Colts Neck, NJ on 12/21/12
My daughter works with Karl every Friday evening. He is patient and works wonderfully with her. She has an A in her Latin class.
"Excellent feedback re: my children"
Lori from Winchester, VA on 12/5/12
Karl does a fantastic job of assessing what is going on in their class, and what they need to completely understand the information. He easily relates and engages both of my children (12 and 14 years old). He clearly understands how children learn, and both of my children are doing much better in their Latin classes! I couldn't ask for more from a tutor.
Margaret from Atlanta, GA on 11/16/12
Outstanding tutor! Karl always takes time to both cover the material and find ways to educate my daughter about cultural aspects of Ancient Rome that are interesting to a teenager. He is a wonderful teacher and very thorough!
Etta from Bronx, NY on 11/8/12
Karl has been quite helpful in sorting out the cobwebs that comes along with learning a new language, and I look forward his assistance. He is very patient tutor! Thank you.
"Very accommodating and patient"
Barbara from Concord, CA on 11/7/12
My son's first year of Latin was a struggle and we did not want the second year to continue with more struggles. Karl has worked wonders with my son's understanding of Latin and with a few sessions of tutoring he now seems to "get it". Karl reviews his homework and tests and knows how to narrow in on the problem areas. It's so nice to know he is available on a regular basis or just when necessary. I have seen a great change in son's attitude and patience and he really enjoys working with Karl.
Alexandra from Orinda, CA on 10/25/12
Karl had good techniques on remembering verb ending which made it easier for me. He was easy to follow and understand.
"Very flexible and patient!"
Erin from Brookline, MA on 10/17/12
Karl was a great Latin tutor for my son. He figured out what my son needed to cover in a short period of time and came up with a plan. He executed it well and it was all using the internet so the sessions were easy to arrange and met our crazy time schedule. I am keeping Karl in my contacts in case my son needs a refresher in the future. I would recommend Karl to anyone.
Angela from Woodland Hills, CA on 9/8/12
Karl, thank you so much for a spectacular first session with my daughter! She cannot stop singing your praises. Everything about the lesson was positive. She feels that she has learned and understood more in one session with you, than she has in 6 months of Latin classes!
Michelle from Berkeley, CA on 8/28/12
Karl was helpful in the subjects of rhetoric, philosophy, composition, and proofreading and we collaborated over Skype and it worked very well.
Tara from Pleasant Hill, CA on 8/15/12
Karl took on 5 of our kids to keep their Latin fresh during the summer, and exposing them to what they will be learning in Ecce 1B next year. He was engaging, informative, patient, and encouraging. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone looking for extra help in Latin or just keeping it fresh for the summer. My son has already said he will miss seeing Karl each week.
Carol from Culver City, CA on 7/18/12
Karl has been awesome. We hired him to tutor my 12-year old nephew in Latin and it's going very well. Karl is giving my nephew appropriate and engaging exercises and my nephew loves the lessons. I highly recommend Karl as a tutor.
"Tutoring to your individual needs"
Virginia from Menlo Park, CA on 6/6/12
Karl has been my Latin tutor for 2 years now, and I hope for some time to come. He was very receptive to my study requirements and interests, and very flexible in working with me to come up with an appropriate study program to meet my goals. He knows his stuff, he's fun to work with, and he'll make sure you meet your particular goals. I recommend him highly to beginners and advanced students alike. And I hear he may be even better with Greek!
Christine from Philadelphia, PA on 5/31/12
Obviously very competent and dedicated. Most importantly for me, he instantly built a rapport with my son. His voice was soothing and simultaneously commanding.
"Great Latin Tutor"
Jeffrey from Plainsboro, NJ on 9/6/11
Karl is a fantastic tutor. My son found him very engaging and extremely helpful. They quickly developed a good working relationship. My son wished his Latin teacher was as interesting and vibrant as Karl and this showed in his grades which went from a C to an A. I highly recommend Karl.
"Superb Tutor! "
Kimberly from Diamond Bar, CA on 12/19/10
Karl G is the best tutor I've ever had! I am a student at UC Berkeley and I had lots of trouble with writing and grammar but with Karl G's help I am sure I did well last semester. He has had many years of experience and I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs help with college writing in general. He is also very accessible, always answering his phone and responding to his emails very quickly. I am glad that I found Mr. Karl G. because it is VERY difficult to find a good tutor. Thank you.
Cathy from Chicago, IL on 10/1/10
It's only been 2 sessions that Allison has worked with Karl and I don't know what he's doing (actually I'm updated after every session) but her confidence has risen 100%. She actually thinks she has someone that she can go to in order to get a better understanding of Latin. For the past two years she has struggled with both the content and a teacher that is distant. Allison was really getting discouraged. Thanks Karl!
