About Nancy

Salvete! Do you think learning Latin is difficult? Not when you have an experienced teacher! I have taught Latin to middle and high school students for over ten years. My knowledge of culture, history, and mythology brings new life to language study. I am familiar with many textbooks (Lingua Latina, Wheelocks, Cambridge, Latin for Americans, Jenney) and can tailor classes to fit your needs and learning style. You will find this "dead" language is as vibrant as any modern one. I have also taught English and can help you improve your writing skills or proofread your essays. Salvete!

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.

Classics

I hold a degree in Classics from Wesleyan University and am certified to teach Latin and Classical Humanities in Massachusetts. In my ten years' experience teaching Latin, Roman history and culture have been an integral part of my curriculum. For the past three summers, I have coached students preparing for national competitions with a focus on Roman history, culture, and mythology in addition to Latin language studies.

Elementary (K-6th)

I homeschooled my four children in all subject areas from preschool through eighth grade. I have experience with English, history, and elementary math. For one year, I worked as a special education aide for students in grades 1-3 at the Abby Kelley Foster Charter School. Currently, two of my Latin students are elementary school aged.

English

Although my degree is in Latin, I have extensive practice in writing, editing, and proof reading. During my ten years in the classroom, I taught middle school English, helped students prepare college essays, and guided the editing of a successful student newsletter. Since 2013, I have been using my strong command of English in private tutoring. During the summer of 2014, I taught creative writing to middle school students.

We've been working with Nancy for several months now, and she is a wonderful fit for us. She clearly knows Latin and how to teach it with encouragement and enthusiasm. She's excellent at assessing where my daughter's strengths and challenges lie and providing supplementary materials as necessary. In addition to her expertise with Latin and with our particular curriculum, Nancy's patience and flexi
