Experienced Latin teacher offering Latin lessons or tutoring in the Indianapolis area

Methodology

I have taught students ranging from second to twelfth grade. Obviously the method must vary depending on the student's age and previous knowledge, but I always emphasize memorizing forms and vocabulary words, understanding grammar and the rationale behind grammar rules, and paying careful attention to details, as Latin requires. I have used mostly the Henle and Cambridge Latin curricula but will be able to consider others as well.

Background

I have a bachelor's degree in classical languages from Franciscan University of Steubenville and have been teaching Latin in a variety of settings, mostly online group classes but also individual students, for the past nine years. My students have appreciated my ability to answer questions and to guide and encourage them through the difficult grammar and exercises. Most of them have achieved good grades in class and high scores on the National Latin Exam.

Perfect! Lisa was fully familiar with the Henle Latin my daughter is studying and quite capable of helping her with her questions. Very good experience working with Lisa!

Lisa's response

Julie and her daughter asked intelligent questions and demonstrated a true appreciation of the material and desire to learn. I was pleased!

I had Lisa as a Latin teacher during my second year of high school Latin. Lisa was very dedicated and thorough. She had high standards and really wanted her students to excel. She laid the foundation that enabled me to continue my Latin studies throughout high school and into college. I would definitely recommend Lisa as a Latin teacher!

I studied Latin for six years, three of which I spent with Lisa. She was an amazing teacher (and by far, my favorite), dedicated and adaptable to the needs of all her students. I studied with her both in a group setting, as well as one-on-one, and I could not have been happier. She was always open to questions, making it easy to go at my own pace. Without her, I don't think I would have the immense understanding of Latin, nor the love for it, that I have today. Whether one has just begun Latin, or they have studied it for years, I highly recommend her.

Lisa graduated with a degree in Latin and has an excellent grasp of the language. She has been teaching all ages, and all levels, individually and in groups, for several years. She is a patient teacher; she's also very flexible and can adapt to the needs of different students. I'd recommend her to teach Latin to anyone!
