Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Michael W. B.
Gender: Male   Age: 65+
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I'm a veteran teacher of Latin who has devised methods and materials to ultimately simplify the learning of Latin. I'm now authoring an introductory to Latin textbook that incorporate tjese simplified methods. Currently (i.e. as of Dec. 2010,) however, I have no experience in tutoring on-line students. So at this time I'm offering my on-line services free of charge because I want to learn how to become an excellent on-line teacher of Latin.
