As someone who has been tutored at different times in my life, I certainly have benefitted from the advantages of a one-on-one learning environment. For a student, it is important to have access to a educational space that is personalized. As a teacher, tutoring can be some of the most rewarding work one can do. Teachers chose this profession because it allows them to invest in the future by investing in their students; tutoring is one of the most effective ways to do that.
A little bit about myself. I have a BA in Ancient History & Classics (Latin & Greek) from The Ohio State University. I have Post-Baccalaureate certificate in Latin and Greek from The University of Pennsylvania, and am currently a graduate student in Classics in the MA/PhD program at UC Santa Barbara, where I am in my third year. I am primarily a Latinist, and my research interests are in the late Roman Republican period (1st century BC) and especially in the work of the Roman orator Cicero. As teaching experience goes, I tutored Latin in college, taught high school Latin/Greek part-time in Philadelphia, and have been a teaching assistant here at UCSB for three years. I am consistently highly rated in my student evaluations, and have twice been nominated for the UCSB Outstanding Teaching Award by my students.
Students with even a light background in Latin and/or Greek have been statistically shown to perform higher on standardized tests. As a former employee of a major university admissions department I can also vouch that a student who has a training in the Classics makes for a more attractive applicant. I am able to tutor on a wide variety of subjects, but specialize in Latin, Greek, and history. I have high standards, but primarily believe that tutoring should be fun and something both parties look forward to.
I am very flexible with my schedule, especially so in the summer. Cancellations are fine up to 2 hours before the appointment. I am happy to come to you for sessions, or meet up somewhere around town.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping out!

Noah is tutoring our sons in 8th Grade Latin. Our experience with him has been very positive. We recommend him highly.
My son and I met Noah today for the first time and we are very excited about getting started with him. He had some great ideas on how to tackle the material, and how to curtail it to my son's learning style. Noah mentioned in one of his emails that he enjoys making teaching fun. At the end of the meeting session, my son said "I'm excited" about tutoring with Noah! I have no doubt now, after meeting Noah, that he will indeed make the subject fun and interesting! He is passionate about history and Noah's excitement has already inspired my son! He gave some examples of "fun" anecdotes to remember some AP World History facts. Noah stated "history is like telling a story." It is easier to remember facts that way! What a great way to approach the subject! He is personable and appears to be very knowledgeable. My son is looking forward to getting started with him! Thanks WyzAnt for setting us up with Noah!
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.
I have a BA and Post-Bac Certificate in Classics, a large part of which focuses on the material culture of the ancient world. I am currently in my third year as an MA/PhD student in Classics. I have TA'd a class which covers the major archaeological finds of the Greek Archaic Age. I have taken graduate courses which focus on archaeology, including a seminar on the material culture of the Athenian Empire. I have visited archaeological digs in Sicily and Italy.
I have a BA and a Post-Bac certificate in Classics. I am currently in my third year in a graduate MA/PhD program in Classics. My specialization is in Roman history, but I have a wide knowledge of the field.
I have six years of Greek training: two as an undergraduate and four as a graduate student. I have a BA in Classics (half of which was work work in Greek). I have taken classes on many different authors, including (but not limited to) Homer, Herodotus, Thucydides, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato, Solon, Epictetus, Apollonius of Rhodes, and Xenophon.
