Latin can be tough. As a certified teacher with six years' experience teaching Latin, I can make it easier to understand. My students have scored very well on national exams, including the National Latin Exam, the National Mythology Exam, and the Exploratory Latin Exam.
I also have several years' of experience in the editorial field and can help students with English as well. Writing is a specialty of mine.
I primarily work with high school and middle school students.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I double majored in college in history and classics. I am certified to teach Latin in Delaware and New Jersey. I took Ancient Greek in college in addition to Latin, and I took culture courses as well.
