14 years teaching Latin / Google Certified Educator and Trainer

I am the founder of a small educational technology training and consultation company and also run personalized, web-based Latin classes for homeschool and independent learners. Before I started these endeavors, I taught Latin to middle and high school students at a Charleston SC private school in the downtown historic district for 14 years and was the head of it's foreign language department. I love using technology to help students succeed and my tutoring philosophy is based on creating ... [more]


American History

In my career as an undergraduate and graduate student in Classical Studies and Latin, having a wide rage of history classes was essential. As a teacher, I taught not only ancient & medieval history but also more modern European and American history. The study of history is one of my great passions, and I am equally passionate about sharing my love of history with others. History is the story of humanity, and who doesn't love a good story?


Vocabulary

Being a Latin teacher for over a decade, understanding vocabulary connections is essential. English vocabulary is intimately tied with Latin, as estimates place 65% of English words as having Latin roots. 90% of three syllable or greater words have a Latin root. Therefore teaching the vocabulary connections between Latin and English has made me a great candidate to help students increase their vocabulary skills.


Grammar

Being a Latin teacher for over a decade, understanding grammar is essential. While English grammar is not the same as Latin grammar, in order to teach Latin grammar an English speaker first must understand the grammar of their own language - it is the foundation of comparative linguistics. Therefore, teaching English speaking students how their own language works is something I dealt with almost everyday in my lessons.


European History

In my career as an undergraduate and graduate student in Classical Studies and Latin, having a wide rage of history classes was essential. As a teacher, I taught not only ancient & medieval history, especially as it related to Greece & Rome, but also American history. The study of history is one of my great passions, and I am equally passionate about sharing my love of history with others. History is the story of humanity, and who doesn't love a good story?


Latin

I have an M.A. in Latin and Classical studies, and taught Latin to middle school students at a private school in downtown Charleston for 14 years. I know teach Latin to homeschool students as well as running an educational technology training and consultation company for local private schools.

Proofreading

Being a Latin teacher for over a decade, understanding grammar is essential. While English grammar is not the same as Latin grammar, in order to teach Latin grammar an English speaker first must understand the grammar of their own language - it is the foundation of comparative linguistics. Therefore, teaching English speaking students how their own language works is something I dealt with almost everyday in my lessons. English vocabulary is intimately tied with Latin, as estimates place 65% of English words as having Latin roots (and 90% of three syllable or greater words). With the combination of grammar and vocabulary knowledge, that also makes me an excellent proofreader.

Social Studies

In my career as an undergraduate and graduate student in Classical Studies and Latin, having a wide rage of history and other social studies-related classes was essential. As a teacher, I taught not only ancient & medieval history (especially as it related to Greece & Rome but also American history. The study of history and related social studies is one of my great passions, and I am equally passionate about sharing this love with others.


Archaeology

I earned a B.A. in Classical (mostly Greek and Roman) Archaeology from the University of Evansville. I also spent seasons on archaeological digs in Greece and Israel. I worked on a Bronze Age Greek site (Milos Island, Demenegaki) uncovering obsidian production sites and on a Roman era temple complex at Caesarea Maritima (the Roman capital of Judea).


Classics

I earned a B.A. in Classical Archaeology from the University of Evansville in 1997, and thus had to be exceptionally educated in aspects of classical civilizations. This included history, literature, architecture, philosophy, in addition to the archaeological discoveries. I also earned an M.A. focuses on Latin Language and Classical Studies from the State University of New York at Albany in 2002. This further cemented my education in all aspects of classical civilizations of the Mediterranean pre-600 A.D.
