Miss Devon S. of Haverton PA USA Tutor Profile
Tutor Personal Information
|Name:||Miss Devon S.|
What I Offer:
Latin is a language that requires quite a lot of time and effort and is often taught in a highly artificial way. Students learn to think of Latin as a code for dissecting sentences rather than a vibrant language that was once spoken as easily as you and I speak English. While I cannot restructure your student's classroom, I do work hard to make the language more accessible to your student. As a matter of fact, making the Classical Languages more accessible to students is my professional goal.
My own experience with the language is extensive, having spent 9 years working with it. In addition to my major in Classics, I also have a major in Linguistics, This has given me a special perspective on the way Romans spoke Latin and has proven invaluable when I explain particularities of Latin grammar to my peers.
I am flexible as to the structure of meetings. I am willing to work with students online through Elite Tutors Online Inc. (N.B. there is a $50 set up charge), or face-to-face.
I look forward to helping students find meaning in Latin!
