"If you're seeking support with college counseling, English reading/writing, Latin language, and SAT/ACT/ISEE test prep, you are in the right place!

My education is in Classics (Bachelor's and Master's from Johns Hopkins in Baltimore) and my experience is in both classroom teaching and professional independent college counseling. I have worked in all sorts of communities: in the Pennsylvania mountains; by the beach in California; in urban Baltimore; in rural northern Maryland; with students online, who are sometimes in other countries. All the students I worked with had a big thing in common: They wanted to succeed, but they lost steam when they didn't have the tools to work confidently. I made it my goal to give students confidence, patient guidance, and specific feedback so they could do their best work and stand out when they eventually submitted their college applications.

TEACHING/TUTORING: ENGLISH

The best way to learn to write is to read, a lot, and then talk about that reading. I make sure all my students are challenging themselves with their reading, retaining new vocabulary, and responding to literature with thoughtfulness and depth. I assign prompts and review the student's writing with an eye to their individual growth. I discuss grammar, syntax, and word roots to help students think constructively about language. I take into account what is happening in the student's classroom at school, so that I can be the most supportive with the current curriculum. I also help them supplement the school's curriculum, so they can be ahead of the game.

TEACHING/TUTORING: Latin

Teaching the ancient tongue -- Latin, the language of the Romans -- is my first love. I remember fondly my days reading ancient authors in the Johns Hopkins library. I especially enjoy teaching Latin to students who are brand new to the language, since it allows me to help lay the foundation for a rewarding experience with Latin. I tend to bring a lot of excitement to my Latin sessions! It's a lot of fun for me.
