Humanities Teacher: 4th Grade through Adult

I studied Latin for five years: two in high school and three in college. When I finished, I was reasonably proficient and able to translate from works such as Cicero, Virgil, etc. In addition, I have made a close literary study of the Iliad, Odyssey, and several of the Greek tragedies. I am also thoroughly familiar with Greco-Roman mythology. I have studied ancient history and am familiar with the contexts of the classics from that perspective as well. My teacher handed me the Iliad when I was fourteen, and I hated it. Eight years and two full tours of the Great Books later, I had learned [more]

Practicing Lawyer Offering to Teach You About Civics and the Law

I believe I am well suited to tutor in the subject of classics because my undergraduate degree at St. John's College was in classics. This experience, coupled with my later reading experience, taught me a great deal about reading classic literature for the author's insights in human nature coupled with what we can learn about the author's society through his or her writing. As each class in classics may have a different focus, it would be important for me to understand the motive of the class in order to direct the student properly. [more]

I open doors in History, English, and Music

My area of expertise in history was the ancient world, which of course includes Greece and Rome. I never studied Latin but managed to pick up a bit from history and music, as well as a paleography class I took in graduate school. As for Greek, I took several courses in Classical, Koine, and Homeric Greek as an undergraduate and one or two in Classical as a graduate student. I am familiar with many of the ancient writers and have some acquaintance with their translators as well. Hello, my name is Don L. I majored in history and minored - almost a double major- in music, then did more graduate w [more]

Patient, knowledgeable, and friendly History, Math, and Writing tutor

I am qualified to tutor in the Classical Era of history because that was a large chunk of the learning in my undergraduate degree. I took Western Civilization I, which is a class that goes through the beginning of history to the Colonial Era, which means the entire Classical Era was studied. A more in depth class I took was the History of Ancient Rome, which look at the entire history of Rome with great detail. In addition to the second class mentioned, I also went on an academic trip with my professor and peers to view and study the historic sites in Italy and Greece. This includes, but i [more]

Educator, Thinker, Linguist, Activist, Lifelong Learner

I began studying Latin in the eleventh grade. I became so passionate about the material that I completed an additional year of Latin on my own before my last year of high school, such that I completed the equivalent of three full years of Latin before enrolling in college. Then I took three Latin literature courses at Oberlin College, including Vergil, Cicero, and Roman Comedy (an advanced level seminar focusing on translating and theorizing about the comedies of Plautus). In 2013, the National Latin Exam scholarship committee at the University of Mary Washington awarded me with their presti [more]
