Teaching and tutoring are my passions. I take them seriously, keep up with recent research, and am constantly looking for ways to help students interpret material they may be struggling with. I am currently seeking Teacher Certification so I can pursue my career goal of making Latin and Grammar accessible and relevant to modern students. That being the case, my primary focus is Latin tutoring, though my extensive experience with academic writing/reading and the research I have conducted in French enable me to offer help in those areas as well. My concentration in linguistics has often helped me show students ways to connect with language and writing that fit their own experiences. For students struggling with Latin, I offer help with paradigm memorization & I offer guidance and practice reading Latin. I am happy to supplement studies with outside readings to help with fluency and accuracy. If you or your student is struggling with Writing or Grammar, I will help you find an effective way to work with and understand Formal English. If you need help with elementary French, I am happy to discuss grammar and practice pronunciation with you.
