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.

Highly knowledgeable Latin teacher

Elizabeth P clearly is an experienced teacher who knows how to break down Latin in a way that can be understood by beginner students. My son needed extra help when he was thrown into a 2nd-year Latin class as a first-year student. From the very first lesson, he remarked that Mrs. P explained the concepts to him better than his school teacher. She helped him catch up to his class in a short amount of time. He is now receiving an A in his class. His school teacher is so impressed with how he's improved from the beginning of the year and Mrs. P was instrumental in patiently helping my son work through this very difficult subject.

Knowledgeable and Patient

This week was the first session with my daughter Abigail who is eleven years old doing middle school Latin. She states Ms. Elizabeth made Latin very easy to understand hence making her more comfortable with the language. She had difficulty properly translating the language but Ms. Elizabeth broke down the concept so she was able to understand it better. She enjoys her session and looks forward to her next session. Thank you Ms. Elizabeth I am already seeing a difference in her approach to the language.

She is helping my son feel more confident with his Latin. She is very patient and works with him where he struggles and reinforces what he already knows. The opportunity to review the lessons is also very helpful in his studying.
