I graduated from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) with a BA in Classical Civilizations. After graduation, I have worked as a classical languages, writing, and literature tutor, teaching students ranging from middle schoolers to doctoral candidates. I am also a junior high Latin teacher at St. Norbert School. While I love helping students with any language-related subject (in fact, I truly enjoy analyzing English grammar!), I am most passionate about teaching Latin. I find it extremely gratifying when my students realize that a so-called "dead" language can actually be relevant to their lives! When tutoring Latin, I like to focus on using various strategies to help students "read with expectations, " meaning that students engage in linear reading (reading left-to-right, without skipping around), and approach texts with a notion of what makes a sentence complete. More generally, as a tutor, I am very patient and flexible, always keeping a student's goals and motivations in mind when planning and teaching lessons.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy various hobbies: reading contemporary fiction, visiting museums, taking bike rides, and spending time with my pet rabbit!
