I have more than 9 years of experience in teaching and tutoring. Recently, I was graduate teaching assistant for the University of Iowa, teaching such classes as Roman and Greek Civilization, Classical Mythology, Medical and Technical Terminology, and English Rhetoric (Writing and Speaking). Prior to this, I taught Latin for students Middle and High School students and tutored Adult learners in Latin and Ancient Greek.

My philosophy is that there is no wrong way of learning. I meet students on their terms, understanding that learning is a collaborative process between student and teacher. I recognize that language learning can be very challenging, but I believe that we all have the ability to learn. I am very patient and kind with students, providing encouragement through the entire process.

I welcome the opportunity to tutor students of all ages, as I pursue a career as a college professor. I have a passion and love for the subjects and love to help share my enthusiasm.
