Hi, I love the Classics (ancient Greek and Latin language, history and culture) and so should you! I’m here to help you overcome any and all obstacles that might be preventing your love of Greek and Latin from growing. I have eight years of experience teaching and tutoring Ancient Greek and Latin languages, as well as Greek and Roman myth and Ancient Greek Culture. I have been a full time Latin teacher teaching classes from the 4th grade through undergraduate levels in both prose and poetry. I have an MA in Classics and have completed most of the coursework toward the Ph.D. I have taken and passed the Latin Ph.D. exam. Whether you are just beginning, or prepping AP or even MA exams, I’d love to help you tackle and succeed in these wonderful languages. Trust me, you can do it. Let me help you work on it!
