I have a strong background in Latin, German, Spanish and ESL as well as over a decade of experience in one-on-one teaching and tutoring. In addition to this experience, I have a contagious enthusiasm about grammar and literature, which, although it can attract strange looks from high school-aged students, I believe is essential to getting them involved with the subject. I love reading all sorts of literature, and my ultimate goal is that my students develop the skills necessary not just to read and understand texts and conversations in foreign languages but to enjoy them as well.
This tutor offers a sliding scale for students with economic hardships.

I graduated cum laude from college. During my senior year one of the women I tutored in Latin won an award for being the best first year Latin student. I also received a Fulbright fellowship to teach English in Germany in the 2006-2007 school year.
