I am an experienced Latin and English tutor, with a BA in Classics (Baylor University) and an M.Litt. in Shakespeare Studies (University of St Andrews, Scotland). In addition to America and Scotland, I have also studied in London and in various regions of Italy.

One of my top priorities when teaching is to show the pupil how to enjoy a subject, and not to see it merely as a grade in school. I work very hard to illustrate the relevance of Latin, Ancient Greek, and English to the student's daily life, so that (s)he understands the purpose of his/her study. I also think it's very important to allow students the space to make mistakes without fear of judgment. Therefore, I consciously empathize with them when they struggle with a particular grammatical or abstract concept, and break things down for them to make the subject more accessible. By the end of our time together, my ultimate goal is to instil in the student not only a deeper understanding and appreciation for the subject, but also the power and freedom of learning in general.

Greek

I believe that my BA in Classics from Baylor University qualifies me to teach Ancient and Koine Greek. This program was very language-focused, and required the exact same amount of fluency as the Latin portion of my degree. I have also already passed the Latin test for WyzAnt, and am just as passionate and qualified with Ancient Greek as I am with Latin. I should be happy to submit any degree transcripts or certificates to verify the above claim.

Latin

I have a BA in Classics from Baylor University. During my course, I studied Latin and Classical Greek rigorously and feel that this degree qualifies me for tutoring. I have also tutored Latin in the past during my residence in Scotland.

Literature

I have an M.Litt. in Shakespeare Studies from the University of St Andrews in Scotland. I also have a B.A. in Classics from Baylor University. Both of my degrees required a keen interest in literature, and I feel that I have a lot to offer students in need. I should also be happy to verify the above with proof of my degree certificates.

Writing

I have an M.Litt. in Shakespeare Studies from the University of St Andrews in Scotland. I also have a B.A. in Classics from Baylor University. Both of my degrees required an excellent standard of writing. I have also self-published a novel, Some Shakespeare Quotes and Nude Shots, in addition to co-authoring a literary pamphlet for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2009.
