Bio

I have taught high school English and Latin for 27 years. All my teaching encompassed tutoring as well as classroom work, as all the schools in which I taught set aside an hour-long tutorial session each day after school. I felt that my after-school work was a great complement to time in the classroom, and I enjoyed very much the one-on-one time, where I could focus on the student's difficulties and add both confidence and progress to his or her efforts.

I have taught high school English and Latin for 27 years. All my teaching encompassed tutoring as well as classroom work, as all the schools in which I taught set aside an hour-long tutorial session each day after school. I felt that my after-school work was a great complement to time in the classroom, and I enjoyed very much the one-on-one time, where I could focus on the student's difficulties and add both confidence and progress to his or her efforts. While I love both American and British literature, I believe my greatest strength was in teaching the students to write essays that were concise, concrete, and compelling. As a student and teacher of Latin, I loved helping students develop their vocabularies, and this work, together with time spent on analogies and reading selections, brought about almost universal improvement in their standardized test scores. While I was keen to stretch the student to a reasonable limit, I always started right where he or she was when we first met. Over the years of my career, awards and recognition came my way, but for me the greatest delight was to see the glint of understanding in the student's eyes.

Highly experienced, engaging, and caring

Clint taught my son to organize his thoughts for writing an essay - write them all up on cards and then sort them. This is very helpful because hardest part in writing an essay is to figure out how to organize your thoughts. It's more fun and easier to sort cards than to keep all your thoughts in your head.
