The University of Richmond (Latin and Greek)
I would really enjoy getting the opportunity to help you understand the wonderful language of Latin. For an overview of my career with Latin so far I have to start as far back as the sixth grade. That is the year in which I started studying the language and I have been in love with it and working with it ever since. In high school I completed the AP Latin course during my Junior year and then had the opportunity in my senior year to expand my horizons and work with Latin from later periods in works such as the Nuremberg Chronicle published in 1492 and Archimedes' "Opera Quae Extant" published in 1611 by the French author David Rivault. As I ventured into the Latin major at the University of Richmond I continued to read many interesting authors of both the Classical period and later era, culminating in my thesis on the key figures in astronomy from Aristotle to Kepler and my final research into Kepler's early work the "Mysterium Cosmographicum."
During my time at the University of Richmond I had the opportunity to be the school's official Latin and Greek tutor. I worked one on one with many students from the elementary and intermediate undergraduate levels in order to improve their understanding of the language and the vibrant culture surrounding it. The professor and I worked together to come up with a specific plan for each student in order to improve their fundamental understanding of the mechanics of Latin as well as to help them understand how and why an author such as Catullus would compose his works. It was extremely fulfilling for me to see each of these students improve and learn to appreciate this ancient and beautiful language. I am so very excited to take my love and experience with Latin beyond the University and provide what services I can for anyone else working in this discipline.
I have had the opportunity to read and study Latin written in many different time periods and therefore many different styles. I have experience with authors such as Vergil, Catullus, Tibullus, Lucretius, Cicero, Seneca, Petronius in the Classical era as well as Hartman Schedel and Johannes Kepler in more recent history. As I mentioned in my bio above, I have experience being a Latin tutor already and always enjoy working on Latin at any level.
Tutoring and working with the Latin language was the most satisfying part of my college career to the degree that I am continuing my studies at the graduate level this spring at UNC Chapel Hill. I am excited to work with you on Latin, whether it is improving fundamentals of the language or understanding the works of Vergil for the AP course. I am extremely flexible when it comes to hours and time frames as tutoring and working with Latin is my number one priority.

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.
