I have a BA in classical studies from Hillsdale College, a strong interest in all history, and at least a familiarity with literature and philosophy. I focused on Latin but have a solid understanding of the basic grammar, syntax, and vocabulary of Ancient Greek as well. Beyond this, I studied the literature, history, philosophy, and overall culture of Greece and Rome (especially c. 1000 BC - 200 AD) along with varied levels of examination for the times between then and the present age.

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.

Latin was what persuaded me to major in Classical Studies. It is a kind of pleasurable pain in that, though relatively difficult to learn, the hard work pays off not only in the satisfaction of being able to translate ancient works (even at a very slow pace), but in developing yourself -- disciplining your mind and training your analytical and logical side. The study of Latin gives an appreciation for and command over language, the vessel of our thoughts; whoever ventures to undertake it finds a path to overall self-improvement.
The native tongue of the Romans, the medium through which centuries of medieval thought found immortality, and the base of our own language and all romance languages, Latin deserves a student.
