I have a graduate certificate in Latin from Catholic University. In addition to having run the Latin language labs at Catholic for two years, I have been tutoring private students in the area with great success for four years.

My teaching style is highly flexible, adapting to the needs of my students. With my guidance and their own hard work, my students always improve their grades significantly. They have told me that they find my teaching clear, effective, motivating and fun. I am deeply committed to each of my students and take great joy and pride in helping them succeed.

Grammar

As a writer and former editor and proofreader, I pride myself on my expertise in English grammar and syntax. I love to help students strengthen their foundation in English and raise their writing skills to a new level.

Latin

I have been tutoring private students in Latin for three years, with great success. All of my students have improved their grades significantly. I am 100% committed to the success of each of my students. My teaching style is highly flexible and adapted to the individual needs of the student. I have a graduate certificate in Latin from Catholic University, where I am working on an MA in Latin as well. I believe that Latin is for everyone and that everyone can -- and should -- learn Latin. It improves the ability to think clearly and logically, builds vocabulary and supports the learning of other languages. It is the foundation of our culture and social systems. "Lingua Latina pro omnibus" is my motto!

Literature

I am an English lit nerd! I love to help students dig into the classics and understand why they still resonate with meaning for us today. I can help students identify literary elements, understand meaning and write about what they have read in effective, well-written essays and papers.

Proofreading

As a former editor and proofreader, I love to help students learn to go through their work with an eagle eye, eliminating mistakes and polishing it to the highest standard.

Vocabulary

With my background in Latin (and some Greek), I am able to help students expand and enrich their vocabulary significantly.

Writing

As a professional writer and former journalist, editor and proofreader, I pride myself on my prose style and ability to teach students how to craft their writing, from a well-written sentence to a polished paper.
