About Jocelyn

Greetings and Salutations!

I am an experienced Latin teacher who has taught all levels of Latin 1-AP in public, private and charter schools. I am familiar with all the major Latin textbooks as well as the National Latin Exam. I have successfully shepherded students through the A.P. Latin. None of my students have received less than a score of "3" on that exam. In addition to Latin, I have also taught English and history.

My methods include a large dollop of patience and humor applied with attention to the methods that help the individual the most. Everyone learns differently and no one system works for everyone. To aid memorization, I use games, cards, color-codes and even songs. I have led many regional workshops for foreign language teachers and even published one of my educational games with Bolchazy-Carducci. (It's called Mendax.) To help students improve grammar and writing, I try to remove the mystery from the process and show them a system that they can understand and use to consistently improve their writing.

Extremely knowledgeable and helpful

My son was struggling a little in Latin III Honors program at school. The class moves very fast and is very in depth. Jocelyn was wonderful in helping my son understand the subject matter better and provided him with tricks for remembering various verb endings. She was also very accommodating on short notice to help him study for an upcoming test. She is punctual and very good with kids. High
