About

I live in Michigan. I have been blessed with a talent for language and its related areas. This is both my gift and my passion. I have spent years honing and sharpening my skills in both English and Latin. This has created in me a desire to share this knowledge through teaching. I have found I do this best online. I can reach a wide group and have diversity in both students and approaches.

Mastering language is such a gateway to the richness of life. I hope you will join me as I work to share its beauty.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude with Honors College distinction from the University of South Florida, in 2014. I have eight years’ worth of tutoring experience and have tutored students of differing abilities and levels, in Algebra, English, and Latin. I view learning as an accumulative experience. In my sessions, I have two goals: to explain concepts and to provide moments for the students to use this acquired knowledge. I believe that variability in information presentation is important to the overall success of learning. Therefore, I use various methods to convey the same information. My second goal follows closely. I offer opportunities for students to use what they have learned. By giving them occasion to find the answer before I intercede, students realize where their strengths and shortcomings are. Through a careful balance of teaching and homework, the student’s ability will increase.

Currently, I am tutoring students online in beginning and advanced Latin, and English reading and writing at the elementary and middle school levels. I also independently teach an online beginning Latin course to a number of homeschooled students.
