Latin

I graduated summa cum laude from Skidmore College in Classics. Further, I received both departmental and college-wide honors in academics. After graduating, I worked three years for Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies on an English-Ancient Greek lexicon project. Now, after a year teaching Latin in Washington, DC, I will be teaching all levels of Latin from beginner to post-AP. Additionally, I will be teaching an Ancient Greek course.

Classics

I graduated summa cum laude from Skidmore College in Classics. Further, I received both departmental and college-wide honors in academics. After graduating, I worked three years for Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies on an English-Ancient Greek lexicon project. While there, I presented a paper with an original theory about Jason's leadership in Apollonius' Argonautica. The paper will be published in the proceedings of the Groningen Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry within the next year. This was followed by a year teaching Latin in Washington, DC and I am now about to begin another year teaching Latin as well as Ancient Greek.
