About Me

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.

What other curricula/books are you willing to use?

Absolutely anything. I’ve taught with the majority of Greek and Latin textbooks.

Yes

How would you describe your teaching style?

I am energetic and fun. I tailor lessons to you and work at your pace. I have helped many students who wanted to learn Latin or Greek on their own, I have helped students prepare for graduate level studies in the language and get accepted to programs, and I have helped students who are struggling or want to work ahead to succeed in their primary classes. 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?
