About Robert


Bio

Since 2003, I've taught Classical/Ecclesiastical LATIN and New Testament (Koiné) GREEK to "classes" of home schooled students grade levels 7th through 12th at The Pillar Foundation, West St. Louis County. I have also taught Latin 1, 2 at a Christian high school in O'Fallon, MO (2007-2010 academic years), and Liberty Classical School, O'Fallon (2009), as well as Latin 1, 2 at Westminster Christian Academy, St. Louis (2006).

Since 2003, I've taught Classical/Ecclesiastical LATIN and New Testament (Koiné) GREEK to "classes" of home schooled students grade levels 7th through 12th at The Pillar Foundation, West St. Louis County. I have also taught Latin 1, 2 at a Christian high school in O'Fallon, MO (2007-2010 academic years), and Liberty Classical School, O'Fallon (2009), as well as Latin 1, 2 at Westminster Christian Academy, St. Louis (2006). From 2006-2008 I was Adjunct Instructor of Biblical (New Testament Koiné) GREEK 1, 2 within the Christian Ministries Studies program at Lindenwood University, St. Charles, MO.

In addition, I have had two in-home Latin (and Greek) tutoring arrangements involving five "home schooled" students from two greater metropolitan St. Louis families.

LATIN 1—

With the real benefits of studying Latin still experimentally distant for the beginning student, this course will begin to build a strong foundation for personal appropriation of those benefits. Through the disciplines of grammar, Latin vocabulary study and mastery, English derivative recognition, and translation of various exercises and readings from Latin to English, we will grow in our comprehension and understanding of Latin and its cultural roots. The 21st century by-product of our studies will be a fuller, maturing grasp of our own English language, including the academic advantages earned and owned as a result.

LATIN 2—

This course will take the motivated Latin 1 “graduate” to an even deeper level of study, comprehension, and utilization of Latin and its derived benefits to contemporary life. Continuing from where Latin 1 ended, this course offers additional grammatical structures and usage, further accumulation of Latin vocabulary and English derivatives, and translation work from text exercises and various historical-cultural and/or ecclesiastical source readings.

ENGLISH grammar and vocabulary—

My knowledge of English vocabulary has expanded, since about 60% of English vocabulary is derived from Latin roots and another 25% has its origins in ancient Greek. Additionally, teaching the grammatical structures of those two ancient languages has produced in me an even greater comprehension of English grammar.

Over the course of my academic career, I have studied six languages: Spanish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew and (self-taught) Latin. I am a former Christian high school Greek and Latin instructor, and a freelance instructor within various classical and homeschooling venues in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. I have also served as adjunct instructor in beginning New Testament (Koiné) Greek at Lindenwood University in nearby St. Charles, MO. I maintain two internet "teaching" blogs: "Latin IS English" and "It's All Greek to YOU!" along with a book site, "Wermuth's GREEKBOOK — A Systematic-Relational Beginning Grammar for the New Testament Greek Student." I received a Master of Arts degree in exegetical theology from St. Louis' Covenant Theological Seminary in 1985.

Latin 1 Course Description With the real benefits of studying Latin still experiencially distant for the beginning student, this course will begin to build a strong foundation for personal appropriation of those benefits. Through the disciplines of grammar, Latin vocabulary study and mastery, English derivative recognition, and translation of various exercises and readings from Latin to English, we will grow in our comprehension and understanding of Latin and its cultural roots. The 21st century by-product of our studies will be a fuller, maturing grasp of our own English language, including the academic advantages earned and owned as a result. Finally, since God has chosen to communicate with us primarily via language, our heightened abilities with English, resulting from our study, will impact our study and knowledge of God and His Word to us. For this reason, many Christian truths and ecclesiastical themes will be incorporated into our Latin studies. Latin 2 Course Description This course will take the motivated Latin 1 “graduate” to an even deeper level of study, comprehension, and utilization of Latin and its derived benefits to contemporary life. Continuing from where Latin 1 ended, this course offers additional grammatical structures and usage, further accumulation of Latin vocabulary and English derivatives, and translation work from text exercises and various historical-cultural and ecclesiastical source readings.
