Boston College (FRENCH)
Jesuit trained in Classics from high school (Boston College High School) through college (Boston College) and beyond (Jesuit Lay Missionary Volunteer in Jamaica, B.W.I.), I taught Latin and History as a "Kennedy Kid" to high school level students for three and a half years in Jamaica. Met and courted my future spouse from Kansas in Jamaica; honeymooned in the States and settled in Kansas City area where I taught English and Latin in private high schools for eight years until President Nixon froze salaries. After twenty years in the business world I re-certified and 1994 to 1998 was the part time Latin teacher at SM West HS and South HS. From 1998 to 2011 I was the Latin and a French teacher at SM West and SM North.
My students learned the Latin language and culture by reading for understanding, working at translation, and learning grammatical analysis from many different textbooks over the years. Textbook guideline methods changed as did I but students practiced Latin, memorized and understood , used deductive and inductive reasoning, built and followed vocabulary recognition strategies, and won awards in the National Latin Exam. My tutoring began in college when I helped a high school sophomore understand geometry. But while teaching I had a many opportunities to tutor individuals and groups of two, three or four high school students as some of my classes were combined levels. Outside the classroom for a while I even tutored a PhD candidate the basics of Latin. If you want to learn Latin, I can help!

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.
