Hello. I am a recent graduate of Binghamton University offering tutoring services in Latin and English up to the high school level. I received my BA in Latin and Comparative Literature. My academic career has centered on Latin and analytical writing, which I developed in high school (attending BHSEC in Manhattan) and honed in college. I am confident in my command of style, grammar, and critical thinking, and in my ability to teach these skills.
At Binghamton University I was a volunteer peer tutor for the Latin department. During a year abroad in Istanbul, I worked individually with young children to improve their English. In my senior year I was employed by the school's athletic department to tutor student-athletes in Latin and English. I enjoy the opportunity to continue helping students with their studies of Latin and English, and with writing in general.
I can also offer my services as a test prep tutor, in particular to incoming high school students. In addition to helping students master the material, I teach general skills for standardized test-taking. I scored 2310 on the SAT, and was admitted to Stuyvesant on the SHSAT.
I began learning Latin in middle school, and continued my studies through high school and on into university where I majored in the subject. I tutored my peers during high school, and in college I worked for the NCAA to tutor student athletes who were struggling in Latin classes. I am very confident in my command of the language, and in my ability to teach it well. As a tutor I can cover grammar and vocabulary and also help students with study habits, general concepts, and instill interest in language and literature.
