About Mary

Having taught Latin in both private and public schools for over 25 years, I have a zealous passion for teaching all things Latin! I have taught Latin I through V in the standard, honors and AP programs. I am affiliated with the American and NJ Classical Associations. Also, I have moderated the Latin club, National Latin Honor Society and the yearly Italy trip. I have served on the ETS team screening applicants for National Latin Teacher Certification. Recently I have retired from full time teaching with the intent to continue my love of Latin through tutoring. I know firsthand that memorizing vocabulary, conjugations, declensions, passive periphrastic, Caesar's indirect statement and Vergil's dactylic hexameter can be intimidating and mind boggling. Yet, there are tricks of the trade, techniques and methods that I have developed over years of working hands on with students in the trenches of the classroom that truly can and will make sense of the language.

The best recommendation a teacher can get is from a former student. Here is a quote a student in my 2014 AP class wrote in my memory book at the end of the year. "I wasn't going to take Latin in college but now maybe I will."

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 been sharing my passion for Latin with students for over twenty years from basic Latin I through AP Vergil-Caesar. Whether the student needs help retaining vocabulary, deciphering the complexities of declensions and conjugations, or making sense of an Ovid or Aeneid translation, I can teach methods and tools to simplify the process and ultimately master the language. Learning Latin takes work but it can be fun and rewarding. Students who study Latin are proven to have broad English vocabulary and analytical thinking skills.
