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..."

Along with Latin, I have taught a wide range of subjects from history, art history, the Humanities, English and English Composition, Essay writing, organizational and note taking skills, to drums and guitar. 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..."
Emily "...I specialize in STEM subjects, literature and critical reading, and test prep. I earned my BS in Biology at the University of Dallas - a Great Books liberal arts college. I am a strong proponent of interdisciplinary, self-directed learning..."
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..."
Joshua "While I only recently began tutoring formally, I have enjoyed spending much of my academic and professional career teaching my peers in various ways. In school, my informal aid has largely been with classmates at the same level as myself, whether using my excellent proofreading and editing skills in peer-review, or my problem-solving techniques in mathematics and computer science. In the workspace, my experience has largely focused on technology: helping both co-workers and supervisors better and more efficiently use the program and services available to them..."

Matthew "I am currently a PhD student in philosophy at The Catholic University of America. Having a background in computer science and mathematics as well as theology and philosophy, I am able to tutor a number of subjects from GRE preparation to Latin to middle school and high school writing / mathematics. One of the greatest joys in my life is seeing the look of recognition that lights up a student’s face when he or she finally grasps a concept that we have been working through together..."
Kevin "...I have a secondary expertise in world religions and the various theological disciplines, as well as in ancient and medieval history. As long as I can remember, teaching, tutoring, and mentoring students was what I have wanted to do with my life, and luckily, teaching and tutoring come relatively naturally to me. Varsity Tutors gives me an opportunity to work with students to help them do better in school, find more joy in learning, and occasionally, make a real difference in their lives..."
