I have a MA in Medieval Studies/Classical and Medieval Latin and a BA in Classics and English. I also hold a certification in advanced Latin from the University of Toronto's Centre for Mediaeval Studies. I have six years of experience working as a tutor, helping students with Latin and English grammar and vocabulary, as well as working with them to improve their research, writing, and analytical skills. I find tutoring to be greatly rewarding and enjoy nothing more than seeing my students excel in subjects they once struggled with. I look forward to working with new students this summer and beyond!

Here's something I've found to be highly effective:   Instead of having students decline 1st declension, then second declension, then third declesion, etc, try having them go across the chart, filling in nominative, then genitive, then dative, then accusative, etc.    So, instead of:   a ae ae am a(long),   Have them write:   am  um   em   um   em     This way, students start seeing what each case looks like. It's a good way to mix up an otherwise standard exercise, and it forces students to organize their thinking in different ways, always a good thing.
