I'm a Latin teacher for junior high students at St. Norbert School, and I offer tutoring in Latin and Classical Greek to students of all ages!
In 2011, I graduated from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) with a BA in Classical Civilization. As a part of my coursework, I have taken the equivalent of seven semesters of Latin, and I have taken six semesters of Classical Greek. Additionally, I gained a broad array of Latin teaching skills by taking a Latin teaching practicum class. Through this course, I acquired techniques for teaching Latin morphology and syntax, focusing on how to give students the tools they need so that they can READ Latin with ease. I also filled in as a substitute teacher for a University of Michigan introductory Latin class.
Regarding textbooks: as a Greek tutor, I worked out of Hansen and Quinn's "Greek: an Intensive Course." For Latin, I am familiar with many texts typically used in high schools, including: Latin for American's, Jenney's, Ecce Romani, Cambridge, and Oxford.
I am deeply passionate about the Classics, and strongly believe that learning Latin and Greek is a great way for students to gain an understanding of Greek and Roman culture. As a tutor, I hope to share my love of Latin and Greek with others!
In addition to tutoring Latin and Greek, I also help students brainstorm, edit, and proofread essays and term papers. I am well-versed in MLA, APA, and Chicago style and citation conventions. Additionally, I have experience checking and formatting Bluebook citations for legal papers.
In 2011, I graduated from the University of Michigan with highest distinction and a degree in Classical Civilizations. I also won departmental honors for outstanding achievement in my concentration. Additionally, as a junior high Latin teacher, I frequently incorporate Greek and Roman culture units into my lesson plans.
As a Classical Studies concentrator, I have taken six semesters of Classical Greek, and I have experience reading both prose (e.g. Plato, Xenophon, Herodotus) and poetry (Euripides).
Additionally, I have worked as an introductory Greek tutor, teaching out of Hansen and Quinn's "Greek: an Intensive Course."
