If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I am a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville and have a dual degree in Classics (Greek and Latin) and Philosophy. I have also completed my Master's in Philosophy with a concentration in Bioethics, and neo-Aristotelian thought.

I am an adjunct professor of ethics and other philosophical topics at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL.

On the side I tutor in the languages of Latin, Spanish, Ancient Greek and English and am very qualified to do so. I have tutored in Latin for 5 years at my school and taught a class at school through a volunteer program. I currently work full time. On the rare occasion that there is a student needing assistance in Philosophy (perhaps with writing especially), I am also available for that.

My method of teaching is adjusted to the needs of the student. I foresee two situations:

Scenario # 1.
You are in a middle school, high school or college Latin, Spanish, English or Ancient Greek class. You are falling behind and need some assistance.

Scenario # 2.
You are wishing to learn to speak, write, read or improve your current Latin, Spanish, English or Ancient Greek ability because you wish to receive a head start before a class, need it for your professional career, or simply have a desire to learn the subject.

In either case, I am willing to help.

Greek

I have translated, interpreted and written scholarly papers on the following in Greek literature: Plato's Ion, Thucydides, Aristotle, Democritus and many others. The Classics degree I received required 15 credit hours of Ancient Greek.
