How would you describe your teaching style?

I am energetic and fun. I tailor lessons to you and work at your pace.

My goal is for you to learn the language well, and to fall in love with the language in the process.

Are you willing to teach classical Latin upon request?

Yes

Intro

My name is Jenni and I am a professional Latin and Greek teacher with over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring both Latin and Ancient Greek. I have taught professionally at the elementary, junior high, and graduate levels and I hold Master’s degrees in Classical Philology. I am currently working on my PhD at Bryn Mawr College, and before that I taught Greek and Latin at the Polis Institute for several years. I also have experience with spoken Latin and Ancient Greek, and I teach all of my school courses in a 100% immersion setting. My passion is to show every interested student that they have the capability to master these languages. With my help, the complicated aspects of these languages will become clear to you, as I help my students learn tools and strategies that they will keep with them in the classroom and out – all in a fun and friendly tutoring environment. With specifically tailored instruction, either as a supplement to current courses or an education ab initio (i.e. from the beginning), I will work with you to help you access the beautiful literature, history and music of the languages of the Ancient World.

Intro

Magister Pilcher, a native of Iowa, began his study of Latin at a young age. During various extended stays on the continent, he became fluent in several modern languages and fell in love with the city of Rome. His Latin study continued at Saint Louis University where he began his work as a translator. His recently-completed translation of the Tabula Libri Ethicorum (Aquinas Institute, forthcoming) is the first in any language of the Angelic Doctor’s concordance of the Nicomachean Ethics. He also works to prepare and authenticate sacred relics. His approach to living Latin is informed by his mentor Fr Reginaldus Foster, OCD. He currently teaches Latin to all ages in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
