Sarah K.

Brooklyn, NY

Sarah will work with students to create and follow a plan of study to enrich what students are learning in school. Sarah also teaches the language to beginners who are not already taking the subject at school, or who would like to get a head start before their course begins.

Sarah works with Jenney's Latin textbooks as well as any other textbooks used in the student's class. Particular attention is paid toward grammar and developing a reliable method of translation.

Sarah majored in The Classics (Greek and Latin language and literature) at Harvard. Her favorite poet is Ovid.

Sarah is an incredible teacher! She is extremely patient, smart, and is able to simplify the problems so they become more manageable. I worked with her for a few months in preparation for the GRE. She is very knowledgeable and hardworking. She went above and beyond and fully supported me to be successful in my studies and most importantly motivated me and did not allow me to give up on myself. I felt lucky to have found a tutor who was able to explain the problems and help me develop key strategies to excel in my studies. I highly recommend Sarah.

Sarah is my colleague at The Sun Apparatus theatre company. We have been working together since the MA studies (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) in 2012. Sarah has great attention to detail, and has always been patient and tolerant about my English misunderstandings (I'm Lithuanian). She will repeat as many tiimes as I need until I understand.

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.

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.

Mr. Hills was a very memorable teacher. He was always friendly and easy to have as a teacher, since he was never averse to taking the lesson in a new direction if he found that the class was interested in a specific part. Of course, he also kept us on track and made sure we learned the necessary curriculum as well. His tests and quizzes were frequent, and varied in difficulty so that you were never stressed about one but made sure to review the material for it. He did a great job teaching an AP Latin course in a school where Latin isn't always treated very seriously, and improved the student culture around it as well by founding the Latin Club. Mr. Hills was a great teacher, and I'm sorry he had to leave Summit High so soon.

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!
