I have tutored Latin for several years and received awards for my own proficiency. I began to learn Latin in middle school, and I was even a member of the Junior Classical League. In College, while I pursued my degree in Humanities and Cultural Studies, I took every Latin education opportunity available to me, including supervised reading and translation work in my undergraduate thesis. I have fulfilled courses through Medieval Latin, which was at the graduate school level. I received an award in Latin Excellence this past Winter semester, at my graduate school.

About Maria J.

I have been teaching for 5 years. I have been blessed with a talent for language and its related areas. This is both my gift and my passion. I have spent years honing and sharpening my skills in both English and Latin. This has created in me a desire to share this knowledge through teaching. I have found I do this best online. I can reach a wide group and have diversity in both students and approaches.

Maria is terrific. She is patient and funny, and of course has an extensive and advanced understanding of Latin. She is a wonderful teacher. I can also readily see how she would be good as a teacher for children as well. Can't say enough good things about her!

Maria is an awesome instructor ... she can easily take the hardest lesson and convey it to make the subject easier to learn for the student. My daughter would have been absolutely lost without her. She has the best positive attitude and her bubbly personality will give you the giggles and huge smiles! I would recommend her always for a tutor/instructor!

Experience

Taught English in Russia
Sep 2018 - Dec 2018

Independant

I taught English to high school students twice a week after school hours for the entire Fall semester of 2018. I stayed in the heartwarming town Svetlograd. My experience was wonderful. I loved the kids and the town. Each session was a delight. I was humbled and privileged to be apart of their lives for one semester.
