About Jackie

I've loved the Latin language from day one. When I walked into Latin class in 10th grade, my teacher starting singing "Senex Marcus" ("Old MacDonald") in Latin and I knew I was in for a treat. Now, I'm a teacher myself and I look to make my classes and lessons as fun and engaging as those of my high school teacher.

I've been teaching Latin at all levels (introductory through advanced) for just over four years and I love it. My main goal is to get my students to learn how to learn and love it. I do this through my favorite subjects: Latin & English. I believe that passion can be contagious--that's what got me hooked on Latin in the first place!

I've been tutoring for two years and find my students' increased confidence and sharpened skills highly rewarding. When my students tell me about an improved test score or feeling confidence in class, I can't help but smile. I want to feel like I've helped and that I've made a positive difference.

So you know, I have my teacher certification in Latin and English Language Arts. I can help with any level of school work as well as standardized test prep (SAT Reading, Writing & SAT II subject tests).

I've studied Latin since 10th grade. I majored in Latin in college, received my MA in Latin, and have been teaching Latin at independent schools for over 4 years. I've taught all levels, introductory through advanced literature courses (AP Caesar & Vergil; Catullus, etc.) I can't get enough Latin! :)

I'm familiar with a variety of Latin teaching methods: Jenny's, Ecce, Cambridge, Wheelock, etc.

I should also mention that as a junior in college, I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad in Rome with a highly selective Classics program. I learned about ancient Rome, its people, and its language in situ--it doesn't get much better than that!

As I mentioned above, I have my teaching certification in English. I love reading and writing.

My knowledge of Latin grammar has fostered my love for grammar in general. I am fascinated by the English language.

My eye for detail and love of writing makes me a good proofreader. I edit and grade students' papers, so I have an idea of what a good paper or speech looks like.

If you have questions, please ask! I look forwarding to working with you!

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

I have my teaching certification in Secondary English Language Arts & Latin from the state of Rhode Island.

I have taught middle and high school Latin (beginner through AP & Advanced) for 4 years at independent schools in Boston and New York (where I currently live and work).

I have worked as a tutor before in Boston.
