About Elliot

Hello Latin students. I taught myself to read, write and speak Latin about fifteen years ago, when my kids were in middle school. When they marched passed me in their college graduation processional, they shouted out: "Dad, it's your turn now."

Although I had failed out of school forty years earlier, I decided to return. My Latin training enabled me to "ace" my SAT's and complete undergraduate course work in about two years. That's what Latin can do for you.

I am currently certified to teach in the states of NJ and Conn., and teach here in NJ at an inner city public high school.

Ne timeas. Non latro, non mordeo. Don't worry. I don't bark or bite.

Especially, as I always say to my students, I want you to love something as much as I love Latin.

Approved subjects

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.

College Counseling

I have been teaching Latin at Science Park High School in Newark, NJ for four years. Students frequently come to me for help with their college essays. Through the writing process, I get to know the kind of academic experience best suited for them.

I am in contact on a regular basis with the AP and IB departments at most of the elite schools and have a good feel for their selection process.

I also teach SAT prep. for all my Latin students. Many of my students are eminently prepared for the elite colleges by virtue of their Latin and SAT training. This school, Science Park, sends a large contingent to the Ivy Leagues each year. My students are among this number.

Finally, my kids went to Cornell and Brandeis on full scholarships.

Libenter consilium ad quos studentes
quaerentes do.

Magister Ramo
