I believe that an appreciation for the classics is an absolutely integral part of a sound education! [more]

The Art of Language and the Language of Art

In addition to having familiarity with the classical repertoire in drama, I also know and enjoy teaching my students to appreciate classical non-dramatic literature as well, such as Homer, Chaucer, and Dante. I enjoy discovering with them the beauty of the classic American canon, such as Poe, O. Henry, Melville, Twain and Dickinson. Furthermore, I delight in working with my students to understand the modern classics, such as Orwell, Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, Lee, and Hurston, plus many others. In addition to helping my students comprehend the unique way in which the author(s) utilizes figurati [more]

Tutor -- Writing, SAT Test Prep, History, French, Latin, German

I have helped numerous students read, critique, and express their views on a broad range of classic works. My degrees are in History, and I have specialized in intellectual currents, including the original meaning and enduring significance of the greatest literature. Classic epics, mythology, history, philosophy, poetry, plays, and novels are both timeless and time-bound, meaning across time and meaning in times: in the times they first appeared and in later times when they are read and discussed anew.

Effective Math and Language Arts Help

The Classics are a necessary part of one's education. Latin and Greek were once the most important languages in the world, and now they are an integral part of the English language as well as the other Romance languages. I started my studies of the Classics in 4th grade and continued until my completion of high school. I invested much time in the reading and analysis of Ancient literature and history, as well as Ancient languages like Latin and Ancient Greek. I have tutored elementary school, high school, college, and university students in all areas of math, English, and Latin for the past [more]

Sessions Geared to Individual's Motivation and Learning Style

As a result of my studies in European History (with one of two concentrations in ancient history) I did a wide variety of readings in ancient authors. During my course of study I read primary source material from authors such as Plutarch, Polybius, Herodotus, and Livy. The most important skill anyone can acquire, and the one almost ignored by most institutes of learning, is how to learn. Some emphasize the old-fashioned ?drill and kill? methodology while others latch on to every sort of new trend or fashionable system. In trying to reinvent the wheel or build a better mousetrap, they forget a [more]
