I am currently teaching High School and Middle School Latin at a local school here in San Antonio.

One of the most unique things about me is that I speak five languages: English (obviously), Latin, Italian, Spanish and Norwegian (Bokmål).
For 6 years I lived and studied in Rome, Italy, giving tours and working as a gardener while I attained a master's degree in philosophy. During that time, I was able to see quite a bit of the country and learn the language. I also studied in a very unique, full-immersion school of classical language called "Accademia Vivarium Novum".

After my year at the Vivarium, I left Italy for Norway, where I studied Theology at the Menighetsfakultet in Oslo. I lived and worked as a farmhand on a farm not far from the city (2011-2013).

Now I am married and living here in San Antonio, Texas. I'm looking forward for the opportunity to offer my services to the community.

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.

Religion

I studied Catholic theology for 2 semesters at the Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome, Italy. As well as 2 semesters in the Menighetsfakultet in Oslo, Norway.

There are many arguments schools give for having Latin as a language course: Its being the basis for a host of other romance languages; its use in the legal or medical fields; and even (which is a bit far-fetched in my mind) for forming the mind to function more logically. Students who are obliged to take Latin will inevitably question reasons such as these or any reason a teacher or headmaster... read more

Throughout history Aristotle’s works have been on and off of the world’s best seller list. Even though they might not be on it now, this does not take away from the perennial value that these books have. Indeed his work in philosophy, politics and science has done much to shape western history, but not to be forgotten is his work as a tutor.
