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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jean took the time and effort to come to our house to help my son with Latin. She provided him with valuable tips and advice on how to grasp grammatical concepts effectively and how to apply them to specific examples. As a result, my son was happy with the lesson and felt more confident with his own abilities and knowledge of Latin.

Helpful Latin Review

So far she has been able to clarify things for our son. He is feeling more comfortable with the language and his grades are starting to reflect it. They will continue to catch up and move ahead so that he is better prepared.
