Bio

Hello! As a graduate of Brown University with a double major in Biology and Latin with Honors, I know from experience what it takes to make the grade, and do so with joy and purpose. I thrive on helping my students rock Latin (and school) through building an unshakable foundation in Latin grammar and translation (hello, perfect passive participles, I'm looking at you), adopting successful study strategies, and having fun!

Hello! As a graduate of Brown University with a double major in Biology and Latin with Honors, I know from experience what it takes to make the grade, and do so with joy and purpose. I thrive on helping my students rock Latin (and school) through building an unshakable foundation in Latin grammar and translation (hello, perfect passive participles, I'm looking at you), adopting successful study strategies, and having fun!

Through my decade + of Latin tutoring experience, I have seen that whatever the grade or challenge, your child's understanding, skills, and momentum can be transformed, and he or she will gain the confidence in her ability to excel through hard work and fun. By the end of a session with me, not only will your child feel prepared and on the road to academic success, but she might also *gasp* begin to love Latin too!

In addition to tutoring Latin, I also specialize in English grammar and writing. I work with students at all levels to build strong grammar foundations (parts of speech, phrases, clauses, the works), and I empower them to incorporate these rules into effective, persuasive, and creative compositions that they are proud of. Many of my students also meet with me for creative writing and enrichment outside of schoolwork.

When I meet with your child, we focus on the foundation, the individual, and the joy in the process...and the result is true academic fulfillment. My students have received acceptances to Harvard, Cornell, USC Marshall, University of Michigan, Penn, Vassar, Wesleyan, and more.

I majored in Latin, with Honors, and biology at Brown University and was awarded Best Senior Thesis in the Classics Department. I also won the Grand Prize in the University-wide Aeneid Translation Competition. Upon graduating, I taught all levels of Latin through AP at a prep school on the East Coast. I love helping students achieve those big academic goals, including fulfillment and happiness in and out of school!

I'm excited to support your child - we've got this! -Elizabeth

Elizabeth B. is absolutely one of the best tutors!

Elizabeth B. Is absolutely one of the best tutors any of my children has ever worked with. My 16 year old son was struggling with Latin 3 which is a tough class, and Elizabeth helped him thoroughly understand the content and earn As in the class. She is enthusiastic, reliable, so smart, professional, and my son truly enjoyed her instruction. We would highly recommend her without hesitation, and in fact, any student would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with her.

Amazing Latin Tutor

My 9th grade son was really struggling with Latin as it was moving too fast. After a few sessions with Elizabeth, not only was he back on track, but ahead! Elizabeth really connected with my son. “Mom, she knows what I’m confused about, even before I do!” Elizabeth presents the material in a relatable and engaging manner that makes Latin easy to comprehend. I highly recommend!

Responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, and flexible Latin tutor

Elizabeth was so responsive and helpful when we needed to schedule an emergency session. At the last minute, she made the time to support our college student. We are grateful for her expertise.

Really Helped

Elizabeth really helped me out during my second semester and helped my B improve to an A. She really had a way of being supportive and really helped me understand the material. She helped me review for my final exam which I also got an A on due to her great preparation.

Great Latin tutor!

Elizabeth scheduled on very short notice and helped my son a lot. He needed help preparing for a 7th grade Latin test. Elizabeth was very encouraging and clearly knows her subject. She was able to accomplish a lot in one session. She is great, I highly recommend her.
