My name is Ashley, and I am available for Latin tutoring in the greater Atlanta area. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Classics, with a concentration in Latin, from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, where I graduated magna cum laude. I am currently finishing my Master's degree in Classical Languages, again concentrating in Latin, from the University of Georgia. I will have graduated by August 2, 2013.
Latin is my passion-- I think that we can learn so much from the literature and culture of antiquity! The history and literature of Latin is the history and literature of Western Civilization. I take a broad approach to Latin-- I try to bring in passages from both antiquity and the Middle Ages/Renaissance, and I incorporate as much history, mythology, and culture as possible. The study of Classics is the original Liberal Arts education, and I believe that everyone can benefit from learning Latin.
I have worked with many different textbooks, including Wheelock, Oxford Latin Course, Latin for Americans, and Henle. I also have a whole range of materials I have produced myself to supplement any textbook. My students are involved in the creation of their own Latin Reference notebook, which keeps them more involved in their own learning process.
As a Latinist, I am also very familiar with Ancient History, European History, and English grammar, and could teach any of those subjects. I am also available to teach English vocabulary.
Thank you so much for reading my page, and I hope to talk to you soon!
