About Elizabeth


Bio

Hello there! 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. I thrive on helping my students excel in Latin (and school) and have a knack for teaching students how to actualize their potential by 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 there! 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. I thrive on helping my students excel in Latin (and school) and have a knack for teaching students how to actualize their potential by 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 can guarantee that by the end of a session with me, not only will your teen feel more prepared, confident, 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 composition (studying Latin will do that!). I not only work with students in all levels to build strong grammar foundations (parts of speech, phrases, clauses, the works), but I also help them incorporate these rules into effective, persuasive, and creative compositions that shine. I have a particular knack for helping students create stand-out personal statements for college admissions.

When I work with your child, we focus on the foundation, the individual, and the joy in the process...and the result is excellence and 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 have been tutoring Latin privately for over a decade and have helped students succeed in schools with some of the most rigorous Latin programs in the country.

I'm excited to meet and work with your child - we've got this! -Elizabeth

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.
