Wabash College (Latin, Economics)
Washington University (St. Louis) (Master's)
I taught both Latin and economics from 1972-2015 at Culver Academies in Indiana, one of leading college prep boarding schools in the United States. When I retired at Culver in June of 2015, I had attained the rank of Batten Fellow, one of only five teachers at the school to hold that rank.
I have experience teaching students in the 9th-12th grades. In addition to my standard teaching load, an additional period each day was devoted to helping students one-on-one or in small groups who were having difficulty with a subject or simply had some questions about a homework assignment; working with students on an individual basis and helping them overcome the difficulties they were encountering was probably the most gratifying part of teaching. I successfully taught all levels of Latin from Latin 1 through Advanced Placement. I also taught Advanced Placement Economics (both microeconomics and macroeconomics) for the last 25 years, serving as an Advanced Placement exam reader and a consultant to the College Board.
I have experience teaching Latin from a variety of texts. I feel quite comfortable helping students in upper level high school courses, including Advanced Placement (Caesar and Virgil). I also developed a course in Lyric Poetry (Catullus and Horace) in which I have considerable expertise.
I taught economics for 43 years at Culver Academies. Most of my experience was teaching Advanced Placement economics, but I also developed a course in free market economics and am qualified to teach the basics of personal investing.

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.
