Bio

Hello! I am a Latin teacher, turned mom. In my first six years of teaching I developed a dynamic Latin middle school program, inspired students to love Latin through precise and creative teaching methods, devoted my planning time to tutoring individual students who struggled in Latin, and led students to be highly successful on the AP Latin Literature, AP Vergil and the AP Latin test for five years.

Hello! I am a Latin teacher, turned mom. In my first six years of teaching I developed a dynamic Latin middle school program, inspired students to love Latin through precise and creative teaching methods, devoted my planning time to tutoring individual students who struggled in Latin, and led students to be highly successful on the AP Latin Literature, AP Vergil and the AP Latin test for five years. After my first child was born I switched to primarily online tutoring so as to be at home with him during the day. Since then I have over two years of experience tutoring online. I gained experience in this format online especially after giving individual lessons to 3 children in the same family 5 days per week for 2 full years. I continue to foster my love of love of Latin by tutoring, teaching, editing and translating Latin.

My knowledge of Latin helped me achieve a perfect English score on the SAT in high school. I then graduated summa cum laude, with the highest GPA in the class of 2007 at University of Dallas. I received a B.A. in Classical Philology in Latin, with minor in Greek.

My favorite types of students to tutor are those who are having problems in the language or those who simply love the language and are hungry to learn more. I have experience with and love for teaching students of all ages, from preschool to college-age.

My favorite Latin authors are Cicero (whose life I studied extensively for my senior thesis project) and Thomas More (whose writings I've been translating and editing for the past 6 years). I am currently reading Vergil's Fourth Eclogue with a group of high school students.

I love to break down the problems of a difficult language for students and continually seek to find new ways to make the hardest things understandable to them.

From years of experience working with over 300 students I am able to analyze and solve the problems a student is having in Latin. I use a variety of techniques (work on rote memory, songs, drills, grammar analysis, etc.) to improve a student's ability in the language.

I cannot solve the problems with the cooperation of the student: therefore, I demand the student's attention during tutoring sessions and oftentimes require extra work between sessions.

I communicate a student's progress regularly and honestly.

Please contact me if you are serious about studying Latin!
