Bio

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I fell in love with Latin in high school and have continued to study and teach it ever since. My Bachelor's degree is actually in linguistics because I have a passion for all languages. Latin is my favorite though!

I started teaching my first year out of high school at this little Christian school. After that I began tutoring as well. Over the years I've held a few part-time positions at schools and have tutored a variety of students. I've also held...

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I fell in love with Latin in high school and have continued to study and teach it ever since. My Bachelor's degree is actually in linguistics because I have a passion for all languages. Latin is my favorite though!

I started teaching my first year out of high school at this little Christian school. After that I began tutoring as well. Over the years I've held a few part-time positions at schools and have tutored a variety of students. I've also held classes for homeschoolers. Some were for young students. I even had a 3 year old in a class, joining in with her older brother and sister. I'm comfortable working with students of all ages.

When tutoring, I like to encourage students to discover the meaning of words and grammatical endings on their own by presenting them in context. When this fails, I will resort to explaining in English! I also will develop exercises to help students grasp & master the concepts with which they are struggling.

My favorite text is Lingua Latina by Hans Oerberg because it uses a full immersion method and encourages spoken Latin. If you are looking for tutoring independent of a class, I'll share more information with you on this text and others so that we can discuss which book would be best for you.

Vale et cura! (Be well and take care)

Latin

Latin

I have been teaching Latin since I graduated from high school. I love this language because so much history and knowledge was recorded in it from ancient times up until as recent as a hundred years ago. Latin can be difficult, but learning Latin is a rewarding experience. My talent lies in explaining the complex nature of Latin and helping students where they lack understanding. I also prefer using some spoken Latin because this helps students think in the language and get comfortable using the vocabulary and grammar. For students seeking tutoring independent of a class, I use the Lingua Latina series which is a full immersion Latin program. Students enjoy learning Latin from context while reading lively stories of a Roman family.

Very Good

My son likes Claire and her teaching methods. His Latin is improving since working with her. I am also very pleased. Since is pleasant, flexible and patient. I'm happy I was fortunate enough to find her.
