Award-Winning Latin Tutors in West University Place, TX
Dominika ...experience working with younger students through non-tutoring volunteer work and babysitting. I am available to tutor reading and writing for all ages and French 1 and 2. My favorite subjects to tutor, however, are writing and literature. I believe strong reading and writing skills and an appreciation for great writing can not only help a person attain practical educational and professional goals, but can, much more importantly, transform a person's outlook on life. In my...

Stephanie I started tutoring professionally in 2002 while I was in college. In 2004, I tutored English, French, Latin, and constitutional government for Baylor University's Student-Athlete Services and stayed there the first two years of law school. I love working with foreign languages. I speak English natively, French fluently, and Spanish and Arabic proficiently. I also can read and write Arabic.

Andrea ...and building understanding from fundamental lessons. It is my firm belief that no lesson, no matter how detailed, will help the student if the student does not have understanding of the groundwork on which to understand the material. As a tutor, it is my job to aid the student in the material he or she is given by the instructor and I will defer to the instructor's demands so the student may successfully pass their...

Ami ...comes to academics. I peer tutored all through high school, and I am so glad that Varsity Tutors has given me the opportunity to continue my passion. I specialize in Latin tutoring, since I took six years of it through middle school and high school. Some say its a dead language, but trust me, I have found many uses for Latin that are not just limited to SAT/ACT vocabulary (although it is also helpful then)....

Chelsea ...at Boulder. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Classics, a Masters of Arts in Teaching in Latin, as well as a teaching certificate for Secondary Latin and an endorsement in Secondary English. While I was in graduate school at CU Boulder, I worked as both a private tutor and as a tutor for Student Athletic Services.

Andy ...in love with the study of ancient languages and their respective literatures and cultures. My aim in tutoring is to instill a similar love for language in all its forms in my students. I have taught Latin at the college level, but I am eager to work more closely with students at all levels one on one, tailoring my methods to meet their individual needs, while keeping Latin both fun and rewarding, as it should...

Taylor ...greatly. My favorite subjects to tutor are elementary math and science because I think it is essential to get young students excited in these subjects as early as possible. I strive to make the tutoring process as fun as possible while maintaining a focus on the material. I think it is important to help the students become independent learners and encourage them to be able to use logic to learn to material. More than anything,...

Austin ...my background, I have experience working in fields that require advanced research analysis skills. My desire is to help students achieve the successes in school that they desire. In addition to my law degree, I am a graduate of the University of North Texas, where I received my BA in History and BA in Political Science, with a minor in Spanish. If you are looking for someone to break materials down for students in a...

Andy ...writing. Outside of academic and education, I am a fan of performing music, traveling, and cooking. Teaching and tutoring are forms of helping others to get to where they need or want to be. Some things are difficult to learn on one's own, or they are difficult with one version of learning those things. I hope to help others by providing a different or clear way of thinking about what gives them trouble.... Teaching and tutoring are forms of helping others to get to where they need or want to be. Some things are difficult to learn on one's own, or they are difficult with one version of learning those things. I hope to help others by providing a different or clear way of thinking about what gives them trouble. Perspective matters. I learn as much from students as they do from me. I frequently use comparisons and analogies to explain hard to explain topics. With enough exposure - same and different - to a given topic, a proactive student should be able to make some meaningful steps forward.

Emma ...tutoring style, I think it is really important not to give the student the answers but to ask them questions and help them come up with strategies to get to the answer for themselves; the goal is to make myself unnecessary in a way. My strengths (in school and tutoring) are in foreign languages including Latin and humanities—expect a very enthusiastic tutor especially if we are talking about Shakespeare! I also think it is important...
