Learn Latin with an experienced teacher who has two degrees in the subject!
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!

SPECIAL NOTE: I have experience in door-to-door sales and am willing to teach what I know, help analyze your numbers and performance, etc. TakeLessons doesn't have such a specialized course listing, so if you want that service, please select any kind of lesson and just inform me directly that you want this service. My experience comes through Third Coast Events as one of their top account managers in three different campaigns, so I have a wide breadth of experience.

Wow! Best language lessons ever because Emily responds to personal goals. Have studied French, Greek, Latin and Hebrew previously but never as engaging because Emily personalized the experience of learning! I am so happy!

My daughter loved her lessons with Emily. She now speaks 2 additional languages in addition to her first language.

My son says she's an excellent instructor. I have not been around for the lessons, but he has no complaint and is learning the language at a good pace.

Japanese Tutor

I made myself available as needed to all levels of current Japanese students to help with homework, exam preparation, and study strategies. I was also occasionally asked by a teacher to teach a student who had, due to injury, illness, etc., missed too many classes to continue without extra help. My job in that case was to teach all the language which the student had missed and prepare them to continue with their classmates.
