I have studied Latin and Ancient Greek at the collegiate and graduate level for over almost a decade. I have tutored numerous middle school, high school, and college students in Introductory, Intermediate and advanced Latin.

As someone who struggled with ADD/ADHD early in life, I know that students can feel frustrated when they fall behind academically while their peers succeed. As a parent, I know that ADD/ADHD student are often talented and, yet can fall behind in the classroom. As a teacher, I have successfully worked with many students who struggle academically and who need special attention because of learning disabilities. As a Wyzant tutor, I believe that it is essential to establish a working relationship with both students as well as parents in order to ensure that the students focused. When I work with students who have been diagnosed with ADHD, I like to begin by assessing academic needs and learning styles in order to create a tutoring program tailored for each individual student. I firmly believe that students who suffer from ADHD are intellectually gifted and benefit immensely from one on one tutoring and individualized lessons plans. As an educator and a homeschool parent, I have extensive experience working with and helping to improve the grades of students who struggle with ADHD through personalized intervention techniques.
As a home school parent myself, I understand the importance of providing a quality education to children of all ages and, as a result, I remain involved with several local home school associations. As a parent, I strive to provide my writing, math and classical language skills to other home school families. Due to my firsthand experience as a home schooling parent, I feel confident that together we can work to create curriculum which is tailored to your child's individual strengths and needs. I really enjoy working with home school students since I can always count on parental involvement in the education process. I look forward to working with you to see your child succeed today!
