About Elizabeth


Bio

I am offering lessons in Latin and ancient Greek. I have 7 years of Latin and Greek at a university level and have been tutoring for four years.

I work hard to engage the student in the material so that the environment is both fun and rewarding. I focus on making the student feel confident in their work and, most importantly, to not fear failure. For my language lessons, I prepare notes and charts for the student to keep for future reference.

I am offering lessons in Latin and ancient Greek. I have 7 years of Latin and Greek at a university level and have been tutoring for four years.

I work hard to engage the student in the material so that the environment is both fun and rewarding. I focus on making the student feel confident in their work and, most importantly, to not fear failure. For my language lessons, I prepare notes and charts for the student to keep for future reference.

I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds. I have three goals in mind when I teach ancient languages: (1) familiarizing the student with grammatical terminology; (2) analyzing the texts with the student in order to develop their literary analysis; (3) establishing a solid foundation of morphology and syntax in order for the student to be able to sight read new texts.

Clear communicator and excellent logic!

She came prepared, for which I am very thankful!!! Her organized color-coding of the morphology of my assigned text which she shared on the white board inspired me toward more self-confidence in my own translation instincts. She kindly guided my intuitions toward constructing meaning from the Greek! THANK YOU!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Elizabeth was very helpful. She gave a great explanation of the subject material. Additionally, she was efficient in helping my daughter with an assignment she'd been struggling on.

She got an A! You two earned it. Hope to see you soon - it might be after the holidays. Thank you!

Melinda, 12 lessons with Elizabeth

Approachable and prepared

Elizabeth was dependable, easy to communicate with, and appeared to be helpful to my daughter. I would definitely recommend her. She worked on 4th year high school Latin with my daughter.

Great ancient Greek session

We went over the basics of attic Greek. Elizabeth was great at explaining certain concepts that I had questions about. Very knowledgeable when it came to the subject.

Barbra, 14 lessons with Elizabeth

Prepared and engaged

Elizabeth is doing a great job communicating with my daughters' teacher and making the most of their tutoring sessions. My daughter still doesn't love Latin, but her grades are improving quickly! :) On-time, prepared to teach/tutor, and all-around great work.
