About Chadwick

I am a passionate academic and scholar of the ancient Greek and Latin languages, including ancient culture, history, and myth, who has nearly 5 years of experience teaching middle and high school students in Kentucky’s public schools. In addition to teaching, I have variously tutored students ranging from secondary through graduate and post-graduate education. Through running my own, small tutoring business on the side, I have learned the importance of maximizing my students’ time and the value of results-driven sessions: that is, I do not believe in providing “blanket sessions” but rather in tailoring each meeting toward students’ individual academic goals.

Academic proficiency has never come easily for me, and I know exactly how frustrating and overwhelming it can be to master new, foreign concepts while trying to balance a demanding course load and life’s other innumerable difficulties. Additionally, the greater part of my teaching experience was gained while working with a highly diverse, largely impoverished, and decidedly at-risk segment of my district’s population. I loved it! Because of my own difficulties in conquering academia, I am uniquely able not only to offer the highest level of instruction to my students but also to infuse our encounters with the encouragement and compassion only possible from someone who’s been there himself. You CAN be successful and I am delighted to help!

I have read and studied extensively in all genres/eras of ancient Greek and Latin literature; I am, therefore, an expert in English grammar, writing mechanics, and diction; I am well steeped in Biblical Studies and ancient History; and, because of my considerable academic background, I am a very capable proofreader and skilled at test preparation: ACT English, ACT Reading, and vocabulary in general.

Please feel free to contact me to set up your session!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have read and studied very widely in Biblical Studies and am currently about a semester shy of completing my M.A. in Biblical Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary, in which field of studies I have a 3.8 GPA. Further, I am expert in New Testament Greek; I have read widely in the Septuagint; I taught myself Ancient Hebrew and not only passed the Seminary's competency exam but passed the Hebrew reading course with an "A." I have also read widely in Patristics, both the Greek and Latin Fathers.

Classics

I have a B.A. in Ancient Greek and Latin (i.e. "Classics") and an M.A. in Classics. Further, I am a certified Latin teacher in the state of KY with five years teaching experience not only in the Latin language but in ancient history, culture, and mythology.

Greek

I have a Master's degree in Classics (Ancient Latin & Greek) from the University of Kentucky, in which discipline I graduated Magna cum laude. I have read very broadly in the language from Homeric Greek through Koine. Further, I have successfully tutored both graduate and post-graduate clients from the nearby Asbury Theological Seminary.

Proofreading

As a certified teacher of Latin in Kentucky, I am expert in matters of English grammar, syntax, and writing mechanics. As a person who is in the process of completing his third Master's degree, I am also proficient in organizing logical arguments in composition and am possessed of a strong sense of style and taste in diction. In short, whether you need help in formulating or proofreading your post-graduate thesis or if you are a young student struggling with the elementary stages of reading and composition, I can help you accomplish your goals.
