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]

Trained Historian and Humanities Tutor

My undergraduate focus was Medieval History and Medieval Studies. As such we were expected to study the classical texts of literature, philosophy and government that were the foundation of Medieval Society. Because of this I am familiar with the Classics and Classical Studies to the extent where I can help students understand this subject. If you want to understand the present, more often than not it is a good idea to study the past and witness how today's circumstances came to be. It was this kind of thinking and curiosity about the present that initially brought me to the study of History, a [more]

Grammar Guru

I teach mythology and ancient history as part of my Latin course; I also teach world literature in the 11th grade English course, including ancient works. After teaching Latin and English (and occasionally German) at the same high school for 30 years, I have recently retired and now teach study skills and SAT prep classes at the local community college. I was dual certified by the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, something that less than 1% of America's teachers have achieved, and I am also a published essayist.
