Hello! I am a recently unemployed Latin
high school teacher during the year. I left my job because I felt the school I was working for was not concerned enough with helping our students achieve. So, now I want to tutor your child or children!
I have taught in a private high school for three years. During that time, I developed and taught courses for Latin - all four years - freshmen and sophomore English literature
, public speaking
, and creative writing
. Thus I am well-qualified to tutor in those areas, and also in the areas of reading
. I can also help students with essays, be it brainstorming, research methods, or writing.
I have a BA in philosophy
and Classical languages and a MA in political philosophy, focusing on the American Revolution and ancient philosophy. I am enthusiastic about history
and the other humanities, and I try to integrate all subjects with my students. If need be, I can tutor your student in ancient history or ancient civilization and also American history
I enjoy tutoring because I can interact with my student at a closer level than in a classroom. In a classroom, I have to teach to 20 students, but with tutoring I can focus on developing a curriculum that fits your child and his or her learning style.Email
me today and we can discuss how I can help your child!
12 hours notice required
My rate is $50/hour with a one-hour minimum, three-hour maximum. I am willing to tutor more students for an additional $5/hour per student, with groups no bigger than five students.
