About Bethany


Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring every level of Latin (including AP) for 15 years. I prefer to work with students who struggle in class, who fall behind, who do not want to be in class, or who for any reason do not believe that they can be successful Latin students.

I believe that all students can achieve a measure of success in Latin, and I have helped about a thousand students achieve measures of success in Latin throughout my career. Not everyone can always achieve a perfect score on...

I have been teaching and tutoring every level of Latin (including AP) for 15 years. I prefer to work with students who struggle in class, who fall behind, who do not want to be in class, or who for any reason do not believe that they can be successful Latin students.

I believe that all students can achieve a measure of success in Latin, and I have helped about a thousand students achieve measures of success in Latin throughout my career. Not everyone can always achieve a perfect score on every test, but my goal is to help every student I work with have confidence and improved grades. As a teacher in the public school system, I have successfully worked with students of diverse backgrounds and various needs.

In our first session, I will assess the student's current understanding and current gaps of understanding. If I do not believe the student needs my tutoring, because they already know what they're doing, I will say so, and I will provide information about possible enrichment for the student, if so desired. If I am not confident in my ability to help the student achieve improved grades, I will say so as well. That being said, I have yet to meet a student I could not help.

Microsoft Word

I work with Microsoft Word on a regular basis, creating worksheets, documents, flyers, research papers with footnotes and end notes, and tests and quizzes for the classes I teach. I believe Microsoft Word is best learned through practice and experience, so I would approach tutoring in this subject by guiding the student through creating different kinds of documents with different kinds of formatting.

I studied Ancient Greek as part of my undergraduate work and have recently refreshed my Ancient Greek through my current graduate work in Classics. I therefore feel qualified to help beginning students learn to read and translate Ancient Greek work by such authors as Plato and Homer.
