Grammar

I have a BA.MA. and EdS From the University of South Carolina with a major and secondary education in the teaching subjects of both English and Latin. I am certified in both English and Latin and have taught a combination of both subjects for 30 years. I am now retired and enjoy tutoring students who are struggling to learn English grammar. I try to make learning of grammar easier by giving examples that students use use in their everyday speech to illustrate the grammar rules . For example, in teaching active and passive voice, I have them recall a football game in which a player is kicking the football and active voice and the ball is kicked by the football player in the passive voice. This example, as well as others gives students a picture they can use to remember a grammar principle that otherwise might be a challenge to understand.
Latin

Latin

After 30 years of teaching all levels of Latin in grades 6-12 in public and private classrooms, I began to tutor online. I enjoy working with students who need help as they learn Latin in the classroom or take online courses outside the classroom and need assistance to move forward in their work. The whiteboard, document upload, and screen share on Wyzant's online platform, give me all the tools necessary to explain and reinforce concepts with students. My goal is to make learning easier for students to do better on test grades and gain confidence in their knowledge in order to do well in a class.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

Teaching vocabulary was always a part of my lesson plans as a certified teacher of English for 30 years in both public and private classrooms. It was part of the curriculum to teach lists from vocabulary texts and literature selections. I also taught words each day from previous PSAT and SAT exams. Teaching prefix suffix and root meanings was a part of my instruction to make learning new words easier.

Elizabeth is the best Latin teacher my son ever had.

We tried several Latin tutors on Wyzant, so glad we found her early this year. She is not only knowledgeable, thanks for her background, she knows exactly how to teach and motivate students, also she is much more organized than the other Latin teachers we tried. She gives my son homework’s too to reenforce what he learned during online sessions. I am writing this review because I want the other students like my son will benefit from her teaching! My son will start high school soon and we will stay with Elizabeth throughout his highschool years! It takes luck to find a great Latin teacher like her!

Fantastic Tutor

Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher. After the first Latin lesson with Elizabeth, my son’s test score went up from 68 to 93. My son became more confident in Latin. He loves working with Elizabeth. He even asked to have Latin lesson on a weekly basis.

Knowledgeable and Patience Tutor

Elizabeth started teaching my son Latin 3. I was quite impressed with her patience and ability to quickly engage him. I'm happy with her engagement style and ready to help my son achieve the ultimate success he desired from this Latin course.

Very Knowledgeable and dedicated tutor

Elizabeth was awesome. She really helped with my son with his Latin III. She even put in a little extra to help my son by giving him some other materials to help him out. Really shows her dedication to helping others learn. Will definitely be using again.

Very effective

Reviewed test materials with my daughter and she’s requesting another tutor session. Very convenient times and the remote feature makes it easy. Will use again.

Excellent tutor!

My child’s middle school Latin grade went from a D+ to a B over the course of a semester working with Elizabeth. My child does not like to accept help, and he never felt judged or shamed by Elizabeth. We cannot say enough good things about her.

Audrey, 35 lessons with Elizabeth

Elizabeth took time and effort to explain the importance of studying Latin and use of Wyzant's online tools

Excellent first lesson. Kids are inspired and looking forward to next class. As parents, we will support the kids to stay on top of assigned homework.
