"...My favorite subject to teach, though, remains the SAT: I love the satisfaction of beating the test at its own game, and I am always deeply gratified when my students go from cowering in terror at the name of standardized testing to whizzing through tough math sections with relish. I also love tutoring Latin and Greek, which are my passion and the subject of my career. I never stop marveling at the the way ancient literature leaps off the page in living color more than two thousand years later..."
