About Me

My name is Cory Landrum. I received my BA in Classical Languages and Literature and History from the University of Michigan. I’m presently working on a MA in Systematic Theology at Christendom College. I am a Diocesan high school teacher of Latin and have extensive experience teaching for homeschool co-ops. I have also taught Latin to seminarians and religious postulants. In addition to Latin, I have taught Biblical Greek to high school aged homeschoolers. Students who work with me will walk away with a profound appreciation of classical languages and a superior ability to engage with ancient works in the original.

Linguistic Experience

  • Latin: Superior
  • Greek: Advanced
  • Biblical Hebrew: Reading
  • German: Reading

Are you willing to offer Latin classes at homeschool co-ops or parish Latin class?

Yes, virtually.

Do you have experience with homeschooling?

I have a lot of experience working with homeschoolers, having taught in two different homeschool co-ops for 6 years.

Preferred Curriculum / Book

Cambridge Latin Course or Lingua Latina

What other curricula/books are you willing to use?

Wheelocks’s, Henle, Latin for a New Millennium, Ecce Romani or any other textbook of choice.

Do you use the natural (spoken) method?

Yes

How would you describe your teaching style?

I teach primarily using a combination of the natural and traditional grammar methods. I want students to have a deep understanding of Latin morphology and syntax and not just produce forms. Using the natural method, I get students to discover how Latin works without having to always reference English. I provide students with regular practice, mnemonic devices to aid memory, and a slew of tips and tricks along the way.

Are you willing to teach classical Latin upon request?

Yes
