ExperienceI have been tutoring Latin and Greek in Austin since 2010, via Skype and in person, and have an extensive client list. I am currently teaching Latin at a private school in Austin, Texas. I have 10 years of Latin, Greek, and Classical Civilization teaching experience at primary, secondary, and university levels. I currently tutor over 30 Austin area clients, from 4th grade through post-graduate. My students' average AP Vergil score is 4.5. From 2006-2011, my students at all levels performed significantly above average on the National Latin Exam. I was a coach of the 2009 Novice Division National Junior Classical League Certamen Team (Latin Quiz Bowl) which placed 3rd in the nation. I have been a National Junior Classical League sponsor since 2006. I am currently writing a Greek textbook for middle school students, and am co-author of Libellus de Historia, Primers B & C, published by Classical Academic Press.
HobbiesI was home-schooled K-12, so I have a real heart for helping home-schooling families and co-ops. I taught beginning Latin through AP, as well as Classical and Koine Greek, at classical schools for the past seven years. I have successfully worked with learning-challenged students as well as with talented and gifted. I believe that any student who is committed to learning Latin or Greek can do so. I tailor lessons to a student's level of mastery, learning style, and goals.

We have our first tutoring session on 11/6. Erin was responsive and helpful with explaining her tutoring approach using Skype. We are eager to see how it works out.
Erin has been a great help to my son. She is professional, reliable and very pleasant. We could not be more pleased with her help.
