About Claire

I currently teach Latin at an independent school in the North Shore. I recently completed a Masters Degree in Teaching, my concentration is Latin. Before and during graduate school I worked as a nanny and a substitute teacher within the Chicago Public School system. While I much prefer being in the same classroom every day, I learned a great deal from subbing.

I love interacting with students and forming relationships with them. I understand that kids need to feel emotionally safe in order to learn. I strive to cultivate positive relationships with all of my students. As a tutor I hope to help kids meet their potential and grow in academic confidence.


I have over 32 credit hours of college-level Latin. More importantly, I love Latin. I have so much fun talking about Latin with kids and sharing my own joy and passion about the subject matter with them. I also have taken a Classical Methodology course and student taught high school Latin. I have spent a great deal of time and energy on how to best convey the particular concepts and grammar points covered in a standard middle/high school Latin curriculum.

As a Latin teacher I also have a very solid grasp of English grammar. I have a great attention to detail.

Approved subjects

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.
