Latin Immersion Tutor

I am a graduate of Wyoming Catholic College with a Bachelor of Arts in liberal arts. I have a passion for learning and for studying languages, especially Latin, and I hope to be able to share that same passion and knowledge which I have gained over the years with others.

Algebra 1

I spent 2 years at Wyoming Catholic College studying Euclid's elements and Apollonius's conics as well as Richard Courant's, "What is Mathematics?". I spent another year studying statistics. I also excelled in high school algebra I, II, and III and pre-calculus.


Grammar

At Wyoming Catholic College, I studied classical rhetoric and grammar. I have spent four years composing and editing collegiate papers. I have also spent three years studying Latin grammar, which has made me more conscientious and knowledgeable of English grammar.


Latin

I spent two years in a Latin immersion course at Wyoming Catholic College and have gone on two week-long Latin immersion backpacking trips with Professor Eugene Hamilton, a fluent composer, reader, and speaker of the language. I also wrote my Bachelor's thesis in Latin. Between all of this, I have spent a great deal of my free time studying the language because I enjoy it so much.


English

I have studied classical rhetoric and grammar at Wyoming Catholic College. I also took a public speaking course and wrote a Bachelor's thesis. I have also studied Latin for three years and have thus gained a better understanding of the English language and, more generally, language itself.


Proofreading

I have spent 4 years at Wyoming Catholic College writing and editing essays. I took a course in classical rhetoric and grammar as well as public speaking. I also wrote an undergraduate thesis.
