Latin is the gateway to Classical literature, and since Ancient Greek and Latin are more similar to each other than either is to English, this course presents a novel way to approach Hellenic studies for those who have a strong understanding of spoken Latin.

A couple years ago, I struggled to read simple sentences in Latin. Since then, I have learned to work through historic Latin texts, kick back with a Latin novel, and even make some fellow students laugh with a lame joke told in Latin. All along, Jonathan has been a patient and cheerful Latin coach, with a deep knowledge of the language, expertise in pedagogy, and an intuitive grasp of what we students need.

Of all the challenges of a seminary Ph.D. program, the language competency exam made me the most apprehensive. I told Jonathan about my concerns and described what I thought I needed, individual tutoring adapted to my pace and lots of opportunities to ask questions. He designed a study course structure to meet my needs and talked me through each step of the learning process. I highly recommend his tutoring. Oh, and I passed my Latin competency exam! Thanks, Jonathan!
