Methodology

I like to create a collaborative environment where the student and tutor have a conversation rather than a one-sided lecture. At the end of the day, I'm here for your success, so I want to make the interaction and exchange of content as smooth and clear as possible. I am flexible in approaching specific needs. Although I am young, I consider myself to be a veteran in the field of one-on-one instruction and am very confident in my abilities in being able to clarify whatever you feel is confusing.

Background

I am a Bio-mechanical Science and Latin Language Double Major. For the past year, I've lived in Santa Fe, NM where I served as a Part-time Latin teacher for Fayette Street Academy and as a Physical Therapist for Connerly Chiropractic and associates.

Dear Prospective Employer,

Having been immersed in the educational field for some time now, I have a very strong interest in cultivating my passion for teaching. I have a substantial amount of experience working at the elementary, high school, and undergraduate levels in Classical Latin language, as well as Etymology and supplemental Latin tutoring. In the past, I had worked as an assistant and subject Latin tutor for primarily undergraduate students while attending University of Puget Sound and then Utah State University. More recently, I was given a wonderful opportunity to create my own Latin Curriculum and class at the K-7th Grade school, Fayette Street Academy, located in Santa Fe, NM.

Due to this experience I had to relearn and re-frame how I taught Latin. This is especially the case at Fayette when Middle-schoolers don’t see the benefits of studying a “dead language.” Therefore, I wasn’t challenged academically as much as I was with the undergraduate students at the aforementioned universities, but I was challenged in making this Latin approachable and pragmatic for the future academic careers of my students. I considered how important Latin is for building any student’s resume. There are studies done that show how students with experience in Latin have a substantially better opportunity of being accepted to their desired College.

Thus, I created my class in a way where I bridged the language and history of late antiquity, with supplemental units discussing etymology in order to show the students the modern day use of Latin. As a result I have exceptional class participation and engagement in the subject, so much so that I have to be proud of their desire to learn Latin.

Teaching at Fayette has been the most meaningful experience of my life. It changed my career path from the medical field to education. I love Latin, and I feel like I can imbue my future students with the same passion I have for it. Thank you so much for your time. I look forward to speaking with you.

Although my past year's experience in Latin might be rather specific, I also have extensive experience in providing online tutoring services via Grade Potential and Varsity Tutors, of which I've served as an on-going


Respectfully yours,
Liam Connerly
