Do you have experience with homeschooling?
I do as an instructor. I have done homeschooling seminars, University model Latin enrichment, and University model textbook instruction with Henle, First Form Latin, Latin for the New Millenium, Cambridge, and AP Latin.
Have you ever taught online (virtually)?
Yes. I have been doing so periodically since 2017 and consistently since 2019.
Preferred Curriculum / Book
Lingua Latina per Se Illustrata
What other curricula/books are you willing to use?
I will use any major textbook other than First Form Latin. I am also willing to do pre-Latin and reading without a textbook.
Do you use the natural (spoken) method?
How would you describe your teaching style?
I prioritize understanding without translation. This usually involves grammatical questions, short summaries, and the periodic translation of a key sentence. I currently do not expect the student to produce Latin answers.
Are you willing to teach classical Latin upon request?
