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 "... 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..."
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..."
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..."

Nikki "... I also served in the U.S. Army Reserves as a broadcast journalist. Although I was thriving professionally in print and broadcast journalism, I further enhanced my skills with an M.A..."
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..."
Jonathan "... All through college, I volunteered as a tutor teaching Reading and Writing and in my current position at a major cultural center in Washington, D.C., I get many opportunities to teach and train all aspects of Information Science. My first love has always been Foreign Languages, Linguistics, Grammar, History, Reading, and Writing, but I also enjoy Logic and Mathematics. In addition to these subjects, I also tutor in test prep for ACT and GRE..."
Rachel "...I have an interest in health and wellness and am currently applying to masters programs in Public Health. I began tutoring in my college's Academic Support department where I found a passion for tutoring in Mathematics. I am a strong proponent of teaching to the individual learning style of the student..."

Robert "...Having taught French in summer school and tutored intra-departmentally in college, my first full time teaching position was at the Princeton Latin Academy where I taught Latin and Greek as well as English, French, and Math to students from K-12. I would typically teach all grade levels everyday, though I was primarily responsible for teaching Latin and Greek as well as Classical Literature in the middle and high schools. I was a professor of English and Writing at Paris College of Art (formerly Parson’s Paris) for three years, as well a professor of Business English at the Institut Supérieur de Gestion, a Grande École of Commerce..."
