Through various tutoring experiences at different academic institutions in undergrad and grad school, I have come to appreciate the importance of differing teaching styles to accommodate the learning style of the student. I like to emphasize an empowering approach to tutoring. It is not enough for the student simply to be presented with information about language, whether English or Latin. Most students benefit more from assistance in approaching the material and through the development of study skills such as learning the material in different ways or recognizing the root of the confusion. Therefore, I believe that a tutor should guide the student through the material to a point of comfort and understanding. In this way, I think that students gain strong building blocks for future learning both with language as a whole and with the process of learning. I love studying both English and Latin, and I am delighted at the opportunity to share these languages with my students.
