Award-Winning Latin Tutors in Washington, DC
Brett "...I double majored in Classics and Classical Civilizations, focusing on linguistics, grammar, ancient philosophy and ancient government. While at Colby, I tutored Latin and Ancient Greek, and I occasionally tutored students learning Roman and Greek History. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Latin, European History, and anything to do with grammar! My teaching style is fluid; I like to incorporate other disciplines so that I can help my students develop their weaknesses by playing to their strengths..."
Justin "...

I am also available to tutor in Spanish up through 1st year College level. I am committed to my student's success and do not believe in teaching to the assignment..."

Luca "...Since sophomore year of high school, I have tutored students in Latin and Italian and more recently also in helping students prepare for the SAT and GRE. In my senior year of college, I was appointed as the Classical Studies Department tutor for Latin. One of the things I enjoy most about tutoring students in Latin and Italian is helping them build a stronger foundation in their native English language as well as in the foreign language..."
Audrey "...For instance, I have lists of French words, categorized by gender, which have a picture of the word with a gender specific article of clothing on it. They range from a picture of a mouth with lipstick, "la bouche," to a movie theater with a top hat, "le cinéma." I am also well experienced in how to properly approach timed writings as well as essay writing. In my AICE/AP Language and Composition class, I produced an essay for the short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" which my teacher requested an extra copy of so that she could use it as an exemplar for next year's students..."

Jesse "...I have tutored privately, as have also taught 1st and 3rd grade in the public school system. I want to help prepare young people for adulthood by bettering their writing skills, in addition to instilling in them a true love for reading. My goal is not simply to teach, but also to inspire a love of learning. Any student can learn a subject if they discover the methods that serve them best..."
Nick "I graduated from American University in December of 2015 and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Justice, Law, and Society, while also completing a Minor in Applied Physics. I have a deep passion for both criminal justice and physics, and have written and edited a variety of papers in both subjects. In addition to law and physics, I am also fairly skilled with languages, having taken Spanish for six years, and Italian, Ancient Greek, and Latin for a year apiece. In addition to focusing on law, physics, and languages, I have also had a lot of success with helping students with learning disabilities, such as ADD, ADHD, and dyslexia..."
