I have been a Latin teacher since 1970. I have a B.A. in Latin from Southern Illoinois University and an M.A. in Classics from the University of Washington. I taught high school Latin for 15 years. I have been very successful as a Latin tutor, teaching methods for translation that work. I am prepared to teach grammar, translation, vocabulary building, Roman culture and history. My teaching methods make Latin not only palatable but enjoyable. My goal is that the student will feel and enjoy a success and confidence that will spread into other subjects. I have also taught Latin to middle school students and a few 4th and 5th grade students. I use materials that are very accessible, fun, and interesting to all students. I have also taught American Literature, composition, vocabulary skills, and basic math.

Latin

I have a BA in Latin and MA in Classics. I have taught middle school and high school Latin in two public schools and one private school. I have tutored Latin students in my home. I taught vocabulary development using Latin roots and affixes to adults for thirteen years. With students I practice organizing information in a manner that facilitates translation, especially as passages grow more difficult. I emphasize the Latin basis of our own English vocabulary, especially the abstract. I also include plenty of history and culture as it explains who we our today in Western society.

Tutoring STUDY SKILLS involves practice at taking note of the first sentence of each paragraph and turning it into a question. It involves highlighting main points. It involves puzzling, out loud, through a math word problem. I have worked one-on-one with students doing these and additional activities since the mid-seventies, in the high school classroom and in my home as a private tutor.

I taught English Composition and Grammar to 10th graders, American Literature to 11th graders, and vocabulary development to 9th through 12th graders in two public high schools for fifteen years. I have tutored many students in the verbal sections of the ASVAB, GRE, PSAT, ACT, and SAT tests. I've used many approaches to English, practice in grammar, grammar in context, talk/writing a composition, small groups doing different classic novels, students writing plays based on their reading, poster projects, and lots of other ideas and techniques that English teachers' organizations talk about and share.

I have taught composition to 10th graders and American Literature to 11th graders in the public school system. I emphasized composition, creative writing, essay, and literary criticism. I have worked with adults taking online classes that require lots of writing. We practice a format, and work on introduction, conclusion, main points and developing main points I read classic literature and often use it as inspiration for helping a student achieve good writing. As a graduate student I wrote extensively about literature, art, and history.

I have tried many tutors for my daughter but then i found Susan for my daughter. My daughter is very happy and she told me she is learning many new things from her. Thats what i wanted.

Rajeshkumar, 27 lessons with Susan

Patient and meticulous and calming

My child thought Susan was fabulous!! He was so excited to say he could already do some Latin. She was brilliant to have him practice translation. It gave him incredible confidence. We will see how the year goes and be back in touch if he needs extra Latin help during the year. Best $50 ever spent!!
