About Charles


Bio

I studied Latin in high school and at Kenyon College before receiving a Master's in Classical Studies from Indiana University. In graduate school I taught Latin for two years at both the introductory and intermediate levels, writing all lesson plans, tests, and quizzes. I've worked with students of different ages, from a variety of backgrounds, and with varying reasons for taking Latin, from a desire to read a beloved author in the original language to pragmatic credit fulfillment.

I studied Latin in high school and at Kenyon College before receiving a Master's in Classical Studies from Indiana University. In graduate school I taught Latin for two years at both the introductory and intermediate levels, writing all lesson plans, tests, and quizzes. I've worked with students of different ages, from a variety of backgrounds, and with varying reasons for taking Latin, from a desire to read a beloved author in the original language to pragmatic credit fulfillment.

I'm familiar with a number of current introductory texts, AP curriculum, and I've taught a course specifically on Virgil's Aeneid. I'm happy to supplement school instruction or conduct independent prepared/sight reading sessions for more advanced students. My interest in the history and literature of Ancient Rome is wide-ranging, but I have a particular fondness for rhetoric and political theory.

Subjects

Corporate Training

I have a Master's degree in Classics from Indiana University. This required passing an Ancient Greek sight reading exam. I've had over 6 years of Greek between undergrad and graduate school, including the summer intensive course at the University of Chicago.
Latin

Latin

I studied Latin in high school and at Kenyon College and have a Master's degree in Classical Studies from Indiana University, where I read widely in Latin literature and taught introductory and intermediate courses. I have taught both prose and poetry--specifically Virgil's Aeneid.

History

Classics

Classics

I have a MA in Classical Studies from Indiana University. The degree requirements, in addition to knowledge of Greek and Latin, included passing comprehensive exams on Greek and Latin culture, literature, and history. In terms of teaching, I led a college-level class through Virgil's Aeneid. It was primarily a language course, but translation requires an understanding of context, and so I spent a fair amount of time lecturing on culture.

Very qualified & patient!

Charles was extremely helpful in clarifying many difficult concepts from accents to declining nouns and rules for verb conjugation. Charles is a natural at Attic Greek. He also really took the time needed to help me. Highly recommend.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Charles is an amazing Latin tutor. Although my daughter only has a one hour lesson per week with him for the last few months, She has aced most of her tests and quizzes. I couldn't be any happier with Charles' tutoring. I highly recommend Charles to anyone who is looking for a Latin tutor.

Very patient and very smart!

Charles took us through more introductory Latin sentence structure and the first 2 conjugations. He also explained how we would progress through additional chapters.

Wonderful Tutor

I highly recommend Charles as a Latin tutor. He has been working with my ninth grade son for several weeks and his test scores are finally going up. My son has struggled with Latin for some time now and with the help of Charles, the subject is finally starting to make sense. It has been a wonderful experience.
