I am a retired Latin and English teacher who enjoys using my teaching skills to tutor students of all ages.
My educational background includes a BA with a double major in Latin and English, an MAT in the teaching of English and an EdS in the teaching of both Latin and English.
My goal as a tutor is to simplify the course's material so that students can understand it, do well on tests and improve their grade average....

Elizabeth is a fantastic tutor. Very patient and extremely knowledgeable. Our so. Is having issues with Latin grammar and Elizabeth was quickly able to help him.

Last fall my eighth grade son was in his final year of Latin. It wasn?t long before I saw a shift in his confidence and demeanor and knew he was struggling to understand the materials. My mom radar went up that I needed to get him help and fast. He was having to take the class on line with his teacher conducting it from the high school. He never met her in person. Seeing the compounding challenges he was facing, I searched the web for help. I surprisingly found Wyzant and saw they offered multiple tutors in Latin. After reading each bio., I felt Ms. Elizabeth P. would be a good match for him. I was right. My son responded very well to her teachings. He was responsible meeting with her twice a week on line and over time, his teacher saw great positive results. His teacher had been hesitant about him getting help outside of school but by the end of the first semester, she was praising both my son and Ms. Elizabeth. It was a team effort. His confidence boosted, he started to comprehend the subject and his grades sky rocketed to A?s. I would highly recommend Ms. Elizabeth. She?s patient, has years of experience and clearly invests in her kids to see them achieve success. We couldn?t have been happier. Thank you Wyzant for making the process easy to find good help! I?ll be recommending you all to our peers.

Elizabeth P clearly is an experienced teacher who knows how to break down Latin in a way that can be understood by beginner students. My son needed extra help when he was thrown into a 2nd-year Latin class as a first-year student. From the very first lesson, he remarked that Mrs. P explained the concepts to him better than his school teacher. She helped him catch up to his class in a short amount of time. He is now receiving an A in his class. His school teacher is so impressed with how he's improved from the beginning of the year and Mrs. P was instrumental in patiently helping my son work through this very difficult subject.

This week was the first session with my daughter Abigail who is eleven years old doing middle school Latin. She states Ms. Elizabeth made Latin very easy to understand hence making her more comfortable with the language. She had difficulty properly translating the language but Ms. Elizabeth broke down the concept so she was able to understand it better. She enjoys her session and looks forward to her next session. Thank you Ms. Elizabeth I am already seeing a difference in her approach to the language.

Elizabeth is very kind and helpful. As I was going through my worksheet with her, she helped me a lot and I will definitely go through her again!

My son is new to Latin this year and the school will have quite a lot homework quiz and test from time to time. Elizabeth helped my son with his middle school Latin. She is really knowledgeable and patient. My son had been straight A since the tutoring session. She is the best!

She is helping my son feel more confident with his Latin. She is very patient and works with him where he struggles and reinforces what he already knows. The opportunity to review the lessons is also very helpful in his studying.

My 10th grade son really enjoyed his session with Elizabeth. He said she was very patient with him. From a parent perspective she was very helpful and interested in finding the best way to help my son learn!

Elizabeth teach my son with latin. She is the one of most patient and responsible i have met. My son has classes with Elizabeth since this summer. He felt great after the first class with Elizabeth. What i found is he shows more interest in Latin.

Elizabeth has done an amazing job tutoring my elementary and middle school boys. She's very encouraging. They like her class a lot and are learning so much from her. She put together a curriculum for them, as they don't take Latin in school. She's great at communicating with parents and gives simple homework for the kids each week. We're very happy to have found Elizabeth!
- Rochelle F. from Bethesda, MD
Ms Elizabeth seems able to remove my son's fear to something new, guided him through patiently. It was a great first lesson, and he is ready to move on with more lessons with her. Thank you, Ms Elizabeth!
- Joseph B. from Irvine, CA
We tried several Latin tutors on Wyzant, so glad we found her early this year. She is not only knowledgeable, thanks for her background, she knows exactly how to teach and motivate students, also she is much more organized than the other Latin teachers we tried. She gives my son homework?s too to reenforce what he learned during online sessions. I am writing this review because I want the other students like my son will benefit from her teaching! My son will start high school soon and we will stay with Elizabeth throughout his highschool years! It takes luck to find a great Latin teacher like her!
- Otis L. from Pittsburgh, PA
My 10- YO and I began the study of Latin together a few months ago and feel SO grateful to have found Elizabeth !! She has made it fun and accessible, and my 10-YO loves it. We look forward to spending 5 years with her!!!!
- Elizabeth F. from Englewood Cliffs, NJ
Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher. After the first Latin lesson with Elizabeth, my son?s test score went up from 68 to 93. My son became more confident in Latin. He loves working with Elizabeth. He even asked to have Latin lesson on a weekly basis.
- Edyta S. from Garden City, NY
Elizabeth started teaching my son Latin 3. I was quite impressed with her patience and ability to quickly engage him. I'm happy with her engagement style and ready to help my son achieve the ultimate success he desired from this Latin course.
- Lara O. from Dublin, CA
Elizabeth was awesome. She really helped with my son with his Latin III. She even put in a little extra to help my son by giving him some other materials to help him out. Really shows her dedication to helping others learn. Will definitely be using again.
- James C. from Virginia Beach, VA
That wasn't a typo, she is such a wonderful tutor. She recommends helpful websites and give homework which she expects completed by the next session. My daughter is now a confident Latin student.
- s R. from Jackson, NJ
Reviewed test materials with my daughter and she?s requesting another tutor session. Very convenient times and the remote feature makes it easy. Will use again.
- Suzanne A. from Hoboken, NJ
My child?s middle school Latin grade went from a D+ to a B over the course of a semester working with Elizabeth. My child does not like to accept help, and he never felt judged or shamed by Elizabeth. We cannot say enough good things about her.
- Audrey W. from Nashville, TN
Excellent first lesson. Kids are inspired and looking forward to next class. As parents, we will support the kids to stay on top of assigned homework.
