Jenni has an incredible depth of knowledge of both Latin and Greek, reflecting not only her years of experience with both languages, but also a very concerted effort to think about the best way to teach these languages.

This became very apparent when I approached her to help me in what I felt would be a near impossible task: to learn a semester's worth of Ancient Greek in one month, starting from scratch.

Her clarity of explanation, her command of the material, and her professionalism as a tutor and teacher all made that possible, to the point where when I actually showed up to class, I actually found myself ahead of where everybody else was. I had mastered the material so well thanks to her efforts, that on the first test, I achieved a 104% (even got the extra credit mark), much to the impressed amazement of my new professor.

So when I give her this solid review of her skills, it is not to her as a tutor, or even a teacher. It is to her as a professional. Which is what she is in every sense of the word, as an educator, an admirer, and a bonafide inhabitant of the world of classical languages.

Jenni is simply the best. My son was struggling with Latin last year and I found Jenni online and she was able to catch him up on what he missed in order for him to start the year on a positive note.This year is going well for him . I am happy to report he received his first test grade this year and scored a 35.5/40.

He has now enjoying Latin!

Jenni is absolutely amazing. She’s been providing additional, complimentary instruction once a week for my son who is entering 3rd-year Honors Latin. Language is not his strongest point and he’s periodically struggled with aspects of learning Latin along the way. We needed an expert’s assistance to achieve the academic success I expect from him! Jenni’s personable, caring, and patient manner of education, keen sense of direction, and technical and historical acuity, has made a profound impact on my son’s competency and confidence.

Latin has given me the basic understanding of how languages work that has enabled me to learn other languages as diverse as Hebrew, Russian, and Yiddish. I can connect Latin grammatical concepts and root words to familiar ideas to accelerate your learning and strengthen your skills.

I am in my second year of homeschooling and had prayed specifically for a male teacher to come alongside us and assist in our homeschooling adventure. Although my son, who is six, is not having any difficulties at the moment, homeschooling is still new to me and I was hoping I could find someone who would keep us accountable and help fill in any gaps in my son's schooling. We have found Maurice to be just what we needed. He is engaging and encouraging and has been helpful in sharing strategies and teaching techniques that foster comprehensive learning and not merely memorization.

My son has had tutors in the past, and they simply read with him, which is not what he needed. Maurice actually is teaching him in a way he can understand, and is very patient. My son is no longer on his IEP and is grade-level, thanks to Maurice.

I have a BA in Latin and Greek. Though a "dead" language, Latin is very useful in the modern world. For instance, Latin improves your understanding of English grammar and vocabulary – I can think of no better way to improve your language score on the SAT.

Learning Latin from scratch:

In addition to tutoring, I teach Latin from scratch. I have typed up a series of Latin Outlines presenting grammar, vocabulary, and exercises. This allows for a step-by-step and convenient method of learning the language.

After searching in vain for a latin tutor for our son in our neighborhood, we reluctantly turned our search to the internet. We're so glad we did. Jonathan is an excellent latin teacher! He evaluated our son's current ability level in latin and has guided him in lessons designed to address his weak areas. Our son is a good student and will work hard when challenged, but he also needs structure and guidance from his teacher. Jonathan provided both and has inspired him to pursue latin with enthusiasm. We are very grateful to have found such a wonderful tutor, and we would highly recommend Jonathan Hills to any student serious about improving his/her latin skills.

Jonathan is very nice and gives me a head start on the things I need to know. I wanted to study Latin because I want to keep up my Latin from my old school in Louisville. I have made the right choice. He's a great instructor.

I cannot imagine a better Latin teacher. Prior to having Mr. Hills as a teacher my Latin education was a disaster. My previous teacher had wasted an entire year of classes and I had learned nothing. Mr. Hills not only managed to teach the year I had lost, but catch me fully up to speed and get me AP exam ready for my Junior year.

I have been studying Latin since 2005, and I have been teaching it since 2011. Many approach Latin with great apprehension, having heard that it's an almost impossible language to learn. For that reason, I know that students who choose to learn Latin most often do so with a specific goal in mind. I believe my job is to show you that Latin is not impossible and your goal is achievable. If you're simply curious about the language, that's great too. I love curiosity, and I look forward to helping you satisfy yours! I approach every student as an individual, so my teaching style will be personalized to meet your needs. I look forward to helping you succeed with Latin!

She really starts at the basic levels for beginners and builds up slowly so it is very easy to understand. The homework is very easy and fun at the same time while learning. I recommend her for beginners.

Luke R.

Enterprise, AL

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to learn Latin. Once I knew Latin, my English and Italian improved immensely, and I was able to pick up French, Spanish, and even Greek and Russian thanks to the doors that Latin opened for me.

Thanks to my artist father who adores Italian and Roman civilization, after becoming fluent in Italian I was inspired to become conversant in Latin. I discovered there are a few hundred thousand fluent Latin speakers in the world, and many convene regularly to practice their skills in order to appreciate some of the most important literature and history that exists.

I found the best resources to teach myself Latin, and I cannot wait to make those available to you as well. I used to teach Latin at Moravian Academy in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and I have also tutored several dozen students one-on-one.

Luke is a A1 instructor. I have reletives in Italy and would like to be able to converse with them better, so I am taking Italian lessons, from luke. Never good at language, but Luke is very patient and teaches at the students pace. Sees that you understand, before moving on. Thanks Luke

I like studying with Luke. He is patient, makes sure you are relaxed, and will go over anything again and again. He makes sure you understand the words and has you repeat them. He is very knowledgeable. I know I will learn a lot from him. He will even print out the lesson so you can study for the next lesson. I am very happy with Luke.
