"I majored in both Classics Studies and German, with a minor in English. I've been studying Latin since I was a freshman in high school, and I love it. I tutored in college, and I have three years experience as a teaching assistant, so I know what college professors are looking for from their students' papers. My approach to tutoring follows the idea of "if you teach a man to fish..." My goal is to teach by helping students come to the correct conclusion on their own, whether that pertains to figuring out the Latin subjunctive, the German use of cases, or writing a decent thesis statement in their mother tongue." ...
