"Hello there! As a graduate of Brown University with a double major in Biology and Latin with Honors, I know from experience what it takes to make the grade. I thrive on helping my students excel in Latin (and school) and have a knack for teaching students how to actualize their potential by building an unshakable foundation in Latin grammar and translation (hello, perfect passive participles, I’m looking at you), adopting successful study strategies, and…having fun!

Through my decade + of Latin tutoring experience, I can guarantee that by the end of a session with me, not only will your child have his or her Latin questions answered and feel totally prepared, but she might also *gasp* begin to love Latin too!

In addition to tutoring Latin, I also specialize in English grammar and composition (studying Latin will do that!). I not only work with students in all levels to build strong grammar foundations (parts of speech, phrases, clauses, the works), but I also help them incorporate these rules into effective, persuasive, and creative compositions that shine. I have a particular knack for helping students create stand-out personal statements for college admissions.

When I work with your child, we focus on the foundation, the individual, and the joy in the process...and the result is excellence and true academic fulfillment. My students have received acceptances to Harvard, Cornell, USC Marshall, University of Michigan, Penn, Vassar, Wesleyan, and more.

I majored in Latin, with Honors, and biology at Brown University and was awarded Best Senior Thesis in the Classics Department. I also won the Grand Prize in the University-wide Aeneid Translation Competition. Upon graduating, I taught all levels of Latin through AP at a prep school on the East Coast. I have been tutoring Latin privately for over a decade and have helped students succeed in schools with some of the most rigorous Latin programs in the country.

I'm excited to meet and work with you - we've got this! -Elizabeth" less...
