I am a teacher and a lawyer who adores teaching and abhors the law. I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Latin and Ancient Greek; unfortunately my teacher certification expired. I taught for several years and in several locations, from Boston to ape Cod to the Virgin Islands, and loved each location. the challenges were many and varied, but I and it challenging and interesting.
I find tutoring very rewarding, challenging and exciting. Meeting new students with new and different needs, strengths and problems keeps me sharp and constantly learning. Being an attorney and practicing law made me realize how much I loved and missed learning and teaching, for I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.
My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in Latin and Ancient Greek, but I majored in the sciences during my first two years at Boston University, But graduating from Girls' Latin School (it was a separate entity at that time) and having studied Latin there for over 6 years, I found I missed the adventure that the ancient language had become to me, and became a Classics major (Latin and ancient Greek). I continued on to receive a Masters in Classics as well, against the advice of friends and family who all had the same criticism--that it was as useless as it was dead. And in a sense they were right; so I went to Law School.
I studied the Classics, both Latin and Ancient Greek and have developed a feel and respect and admiration for the art and architecture of the place and time.
I studied Latin for more than 12 years. I have read most of the classics in the original Latin. I find some of the most enjoyable texts were written in antiquity and in Latin and/or Ancient Greek and it is great to read them in the original.
I find that my expertise in other languages especially Latin and Ancient Greek has afforded me great instincts and abilities in English.
I love to teach and learn and would appreciate the opportunity to teach and learn from you.
I look forward to meeting some of you and aiding you in your studies. I am a teacher and a lawyer who adores teaching and abhors the law.

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.
I have 2 degrees with honors in Latin, as follows: Bachelor's Degree, cum laude, Boston University; Master's Degree, cum laude, Tufts University.
I also am a certified teacher, qualified to teach several subjects, including, but not limited to, Latin and English.
