I am an extremely passionate teacher with a master's degree in Latin and over 18 years teaching experience. I am the author of two widely used Latin textbooks published by Yale University Press. Hablo castellano bastante bien y puedo dar clases de latín en este idioma, también.
The focus of my lessons for all ages are very much on reading and understanding Latin. For adults, we definitely tabulate the language thoroughly, but it is*always* in a meaningful context, and only after we have encountered the structures in question in an actual Latin reading passage. My lessons for children are conducted in a non-threatening environment. The aim of the lessons is to help students learn Latin as a language, rather than as a series of rules to be memorized. They focus on reading and reading comprehension, and allows the students to both learn Latin in a meaningful way and have fun at the same time.
I bring a great deal of energy to my lessons. The history of antiquity, the development of Indo-European and Romance languages are interwoven into my lessons. My lessons are never boring, but always very much language focused.
We will choose together the best pedagogical approach / textbook / course to suit your individual learning style, interests, and long-term goals. I can suggest material to purchase or I can provide you with my own or public domain material. During each lesson we will keep running notes on Google Docs and at the end of every lesson I will suggest activities for you to do between our lessons.
