I am essentially a high-powered robot designed for language instruction. You literally cannot frustrate, disappoint, or exhaust me. I dare you to try. I have worked with children as young as seven and adults as old as fifty-three. I have never let a student down, ever. I'm not going to start with you.
I have a PhD in Classical Literature, a master's in Teaching Latin, and another master's in Interdisciplinary Humanities. I have published seven academic papers in two languages and I'm currently a research postdoc at the Sorbonne in Paris. I'm also finishing a novel. I have taught writing, Latin, and world history at SUNY Buffalo, Miami-Dade College, and St. Bonaventure University. I am the single most patient teacher in the explored universe.
