About Danielle

I love to teach!

When I first arrived at Princeton, I decided to take Latin on a whim and I never looked back! Now, after 7 years of Latin study, a Masters Degree in Classical Studies, and 5 years working as a tutor or teacher, I have come to recognize that for most students, Latin can be a difficult and frustrating language to grasp. That is why I take the time to meet students where they're at, help them build confidence, and show them how to tackle new and difficult concepts.

Latin is not the only subject I teach - I have professional experience teaching the SAT and raising student scores by 200+ points. I have also worked with many students in English, Writing, Composition, College Admissions, Math (up to and including Algebra 2), and History.

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.

Classics

I graduated from Princeton with a degree in Classics. I'm currently finishing up a Classical Studies Post Baccalaureate at the University of Pennsylvania. Next fall, I'll be working towards an M.A. in Classics with a focus on Ancient History.

College Counseling

As an experienced SAT tutor, I spend much of my time advising students about college decisions. I have helped students work on college applications and prepare for college work. I have also advised students on college majors and career goals. My time as an SAT tutor has proven a useful tool for college counseling.

Elementary (K-6th)

I served as an elementary school tutor during my first two years of college. Before that, I tutored students in elementary math and science. I also participated in a program where older teens help elementary-aged students with reading and writing.

Elementary Math

I served as a math tutor during my first two years of college. Before that, I tutored students in high school math as well as elementary math. I especially like to make students realize that math is not the enemy and that it is very useful for daily life.

Grammar

While studying Latin, I've developed a greater understanding of English grammar. I like reading grammar books and I'm a fairly strong writer. I've also tutored students in grammar and language.

Latin

I'm a Princeton alum who majored in Classics with 4 years of experience in college level Latin. I've tutored students in Latin for a year and a half. In the beginner/intermediate level of study, I like to get students thinking analytically about the language by having them recognize words that are derived from Latin. At the advanced level, I like pointing out grammatical constructions to students and asking them questions of syntax so that they can begin to understand how the language works.

Vocabulary

Study foreign languages has been a great help for increasing my vocabulary. I studied French in high school and I am now studying both Greek and Latin. In addition, I've spent time as an SAT tutor where I taught students vocabulary and tips for memorizing vocabulary.
