I received numerous honors and awards; I was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Alpha Theta and received the Reverend John C. Smock award for excellence in Ancient Greek and the Jane C. Waldbaum fellowship. This last award provided me with the funds to participate in The Gabii Project in 2009. This was an archaeological field project, which took place at an ancient...

In 2010, I graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers with a BA in Art History and Classics and a minor in television/media arts. I received numerous honors and awards; I was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Alpha Theta and received the Reverend John C. Smock award for excellence in Ancient Greek and the Jane C. Waldbaum fellowship. This last award provided me with the funds to participate in The Gabii Project in 2009. This was an archaeological field project, which took place at an ancient Latin site, Gabii, about 18km east of Rome). This past summer, I returned to Italy via a grant from CAAS (a regional classical association) and participated in an excavation of a Roman villa in the small town of Vacone. I currently teach high school Latin II and III.

Greek

I began my study of Ancient Greek at the Latin/Greek Institute at CUNY in the summer of 2008. This was an immersion course in which I learned the equivalent of two years of Greek within three months. From there, I continued my study of Greek at Rutgers. I've had undergraduate courses in Plato, Xenophon, and Sophocles in addition to graduate coursework which focused on Hellenistic Greek poetry. Here is a selection of authors I've read: Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica (3); Callimachus, Epigrams, Aetia prologue, Hymn to Zeus, Bath of Pallas; Euripedes, Medea; Hesiod, Theogony; Moschus, Europa; Homer, Iliad (selections); Plato, Ion, Krito; Sophocles, Trachiniae; Theocritus, Idylls (1,2,15,16,22,24); and Xenophon, Constitution of Athens.
Latin

Latin

As a Latin tutor and teacher (taught four class of Latin (levels I-IV) at a high achieving high school in Bergen County), I am a large proponent of sight reading. I believe that sight reading is essential to learning a new language. In the classroom, sight reading is rarely implemented; this is in part due to the inability to devote individual focus to students because of time constraints). I've had the benefit of teaching smaller classes and have seen students excel in sight reading; reading passages which contain contextual clues (sometimes they are aided by a picture) forces them to recall vocabulary without being able to look words up. I have a large number of resources (books, audio, and worksheets) which I use; I believe that a variety of techniques (visual, tactile, audio learning) aids students in their understanding and retention of Latin.

Excellent tutor - highly recommend!

Kaitlin was awesome at helping our son figure out where he was having difficulty, and what he needed to work on going forward. We will absolutely continue to work with her to ensure that he improves and doesn't fall behind again. She was excellent!

Efficient

Zeroed in immediately on the area of concern with the Latin language. Was well prepared with worksheets and homework to reinforce what was covered during the tutoring session. Was on time for the tutoring session.
