"Struggling with Latin? Need help with reading strategies, grammar, or study skills? I would love to help.

I've tutored Latin students from Elementary School to Graduate School for the past 10 years. Additionally, I have taught Latin at the middle- and high-school levels for 6 years, most recently at Boston Latin Academy, Ottoson Middle School, and Milton Academy, where I am currently a full-time instructor in the Classics department. I received my MA in Latin & Classical Humanities from U-Mass Boston in 2018 and a post-bacc certificate in Classics from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2014.

My specialty is using research-based, active methods to bring Latin to life and help vocabulary and grammar "stick" long-term. Students-- especially those previously confused and intimidated by Latin-- have told me they found these approaches fun, helpful, and confidence- building. As a tutor, I work with *your* individual learning styles to help Latin "make sense" for you. I have experience working successfully with students with a variety of learning differences, ILGs, IEPs, etc.

I have a strong record of improving grades by tutoring: a recent tutee brought his grade up in Latin I from a C to an A- within 6 weeks of tutoring; another was delighted to receive a 96 on a major test in Latin III, in which she had previously made Cs and Bs.

I believe education works best when it's fueled by the joy of discovery and creativity, and I build strong relationships with my students; they say our lessons are fun and helpful, and characterize me as warm, enthusiastic, demanding, and engaging." less...
