I am working on my PhD in Classics from the University of Pittsburgh, while living in the Bay Area. I have received my Master's in Classics from UPitt and graduated cum laude from Pomona College with a double major in Classics and Geology. I have taught college-level Latin, semesters 1-3 as a TA and TF in Pittsburgh, as well as courses in classical mythology and Roman civilization. I have been tutoring and teaching middle and high school students in Latin since January 2009. I really enjoy teaching and tutoring Latin. While I have not had the opportunity to teach ancient Greek, I have studied the language for eight years. I am willing to tutor either as a supplement to other classes or as a complete course.

Awesome, Patient and Cheerful Arwen has been a fantastic tutor for my daughter who has been taking Latin.

She is patient and able to work at one level but also challenged my daughter with additional skills beyond her homework. I hardily recommend her! ...
