About Elizabeth


Bio

I'm an experienced Latin teacher and skilled test taker, and can teach you or your child how to do what I do. Come to me to learn not only the basic content or a course or test, but also the skills that top students and scholars use. If you're looking for the inside scoop on how scholars translate or how test writers design tests, and instruction on how to use that knowledge to get top grades and scores, reach out and we'll set up a session!

I recently finished a Ph.D. in Classics and have taught Latin and Greek for 10 years. I got a perfect score on my SATs and have been doing test prep tutoring this year with great success. I can explain the connection between the questions on the Reading section and what real literary analysts do, and how the Writing and Essay sections connect to what professors will be looking for in college term papers.

I also help students overcome test anxiety and confidence issues. I overcame those struggles myself and have 7 years of experience in zen meditation, and I use this background to teach students mindfulness techniques that lower their stress around tests and improve their success.

I have a Ph.D. in Classics and have taught Latin at the college level since 2013. I've also tutored Latin at the middle school and high school levels.
Proofreading

Proofreading

I have a Ph.D. in Classics and spent most of graduate school teaching writing-intensive classes. I've proofread everything from student papers to scholarly articles, with a fair number of social media posts and web content along the way. The study of classical literature involves a lot of close reading of texts and precise understanding of grammar, so I can not only tell you which sentences to tweak, but why the adjustments work better on a grammatical and literary level.
