About Jean Wilson

I am a Certified Teacher of the Latin Language from Montclair State University, with a GPA of 3.7. My experience includes one year of full time teaching Middle School at Glenfield School, Montclair, NJ; two years of part time teaching at the Renaissance School in Montclair and the Classical Academy in Clifton and five years of full time teaching at Elizabeth High School and Science Park High School in Newark, NJ. Textbooks used are Ecce Romani, Cambridge Latin, Latin for Americans, Jenney and Wheelock, plus other less well known titles.

My home is in Montclair, NJ and I have two sons and two grandsons. Since I took Latin in high school, I know that it is a great foundation for learning, not only for languages, but all subjects. This is because Latin teaches students how to analyze and organize information. Latin is instrumental in helping everyone process information more accurately and is essential for critical thinking.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Latin

A certified Latin teacher, I have taught Latin since 2000 to all age groups from middle and high school, college and graduate school, as well as adult students. Latin shows how to analyze and organize learning, and is essential for critical thinking.

Jean is really a wonderful and patient tutor. My daughter was interested in learning Latin and has had a very positive experience with Jean. She looks forward to her weekly lessons and is eager to learn more. We feel so lucky we found Jean!
