About Devon

Learning is about the student. By choosing private tutoring, you're making the right choice for yourself or your child. I will help you create a learning plan that focuses realistically on your needs or your child's needs and sets attainable goals to create successful, positive learning experiences.

I hold a PA teaching certificate (which I am in the process of transferring to Maryland) and am currently teaching Latin at a local private school. I have attained my MPhil in Classical Linguistics and my BA in Classics and Linguistics. I am a warm, empathetic, and creative teacher and truly want you or your child to succeed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 studied Latin for 6 years in secondary school, received my BA in Classics from Ursinus College in 2011, and my MPhil in Classics from Cambridge University in 2012. I took 12 credits in Classics at Villanova University in 2012 and am currently pursuing a teacher certification in Latin at Ursinus College and will be taking an Ancient Art History course at UPenn beginning at the end of May.

Proofreading

If you or your student need help proofreading, I am more than happy to offer my services. Whether you just need someone to look over a major essay, or whether you would like to improve your own proofreading and editing skills, I am there to lend a hand.

Writing

As a Liberal Arts major, I have a lot of experience writing academic papers in Formal English. I wrote a 100 page undergraduate thesis, a 20 page research capstone, and at Cambridge wrote 2 smaller research papers (one of which is awaiting publication) and an MPhil thesis. If you need help finding ideas, organizing your ideas, conveying your thoughts clearly, mastering formal English writing, or just checking your mechanics, I can help.
