“Master” instructor

Our son has a weak foundation and some recall issues but Karl inspired confidence and quickly determined what areas needed shoring up. Reminds me of “master” music or dance instructor. Happy to have found Karl!

Latin Lesson

Karl had his first lesson with my daughter for SAT prep. He is explains things extremely well and came to the lesson fully prepared. Clearly, he is very experienced and excels in teaching Latin. Would recommend highly.

Ronald, 3 lessons with Karl

Very knowledgeable

My daughter had a great first Latin session with Karl and he is very knowledgeable on the language/teaching material. We are looking forward to future lessons from him.

Dr. G is a FANTASTIC Latin tutor.

Dr. G is very patient, extremely knowlegeable, and very helpful. If I could, I would give him 1 million stars! Thank you so much Dr. G! I feel so prepared for my test now. I can say, without any shadow of a doubt, that Dr. G is the best Latin tutor I've ever had!

Aeneid translation and Latin SAT Subject test prep

Karl was so helpful with our son’s fourth year Latin. He was incredibly supportive which I think is half the challenge when it comes to studying this language. Thanks so much, Karl!

Margo, 35 lessons with Karl

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Karl and I went over sections of Julius Caesar, and we discussed various trigger words for clauses with subjunctive verb. We also reviewed instances in which cum clauses were used differently.

Great Latin Tutor.

I only had two long sessions with Karl, specifically to help me study for an upcoming Latin exam at my university. Karl was fantastic and helped me immensely. He helped me understand concepts that my professor did not explain well enough or had glossed over. I left my sessions feeling more prepared, with a better understanding of the grammar. He also made the session more fun, with some jokes and some down to earth explaination for the translations. If you're looking for a great tutor, who clearly wants you to succeed, Karl is your guy.

Karl is AWESOME

He's worked with my son for over two years. His knowledge of Latin is exceptional, but he is also an extraordinary teacher. Our son is not always the easiest student, very bright but distractable. Karl has been able to motivate him and keep him on track. Our son is graduating this year, and this was his last class (we think) with Karl. But I can say without reservation if you need a tutor for Latin, you need Karl.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Karl is true expert in Latin and has helped my daughter excel at her Honors Latin 3 course in school. Karl not only knows the subject very well, he teaches and explains in a way that works very well for a high school student. Highly recommended.
