With the highest degree in my field (from Harvard), I meet the student where he, or she, is in the subject matter, and work from there, listening carefully to what the student and the student's parents share with me. Positive, constructive, and encouraging at all times, I look for strengths to build upon as much as any spots to correct. This is my twenty-fifth year teaching. Because I qualify for several subjects, and have taught several, I often understand how they interrelate, a boon to the student no matter the specific tutorial.

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.

Classics

I have taught Classics, from beginning to college level, for over ten years, and studied, lectured, and published on Classical Tradition, on both sides of the Atlantic, for far longer than that. The influence of Latina and Greek authors on the Italian, French, and English Renaissance is my specialty (Petrarch, Montaigne, Shakespeare). I have been chosen as among the participants--among professors from Yale, Cambridge, and Stanford--at the Warburg Institute for the Classical Tradition, School of Advanced Studies, University of London, in a colloquium in May 2014.

But do both.  Self-confidence is the trust you have in yourself, a feeling inside that you can do it.  Just as athletes  compete and win who believe they can compete and win, so, too, students must have a positive and constructive outlook to realize their own "personal best."  So the first best study habit is to believe in yourself.  Only then can the adage... read more
