Hi, my name is Christine Hahn, and I am the owner of Latin for Homeschoolers. This is my picture. I didn’t want to post a fancy studio portrait. I wanted you to see what a student sees during a typical tutoring session. I always smile when I work, because I love Latin, and I love working with my students. Even better, my students usually smile back!
I’ve been tutoring and teaching Latin since 1992. My students are from the traditional and homeschooling communities, some as young as kindergarten and others as old as my parents. I have taught or tutored from over twenty different textbooks, and I’ve published an article, Latin in the Homeschooling Community. In the early days, I tutored students at my dining room table. Later, I added weekly classes for homeschooled students in my living room (hence the name Latin for Homeschoolers). Since 2008, I’ve been tutoring online via Skype and internet whiteboard. My clients hail from around the United States, Canada, and Europe. I love that we can use technology to facilitate, not replace, the student-teacher relationship.
In early 2011, I added new tutors to my team and started a new company, Elite Tutors Online, Inc., which built upon the successful foundation of Latin for Homeschoolers. While we now have a talented cohort of tutors available in all academic subjects, the vast majority of our time is spent supporting Latin students.
I’m the wife of a wonderful man and the mother of four great kids. I homeschooled my children for five years, but now they attend an excellent private school. Like most of my students and their parents, I enjoy a full, busy life. I know what it’s like to juggle homework, piano lessons, sports practices, and a zillion other commitments while running a household and growing a business all at the same time! This perspective has shaped the direction of my two companies. I’m always trying to find the most convenient, flexible way for our tutors to help students with the least amount of hassle and disruption for their families.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet you and your student! Please don’t hesitate to call me at (330)696-7493 or email me with any questions about Latin or tutoring in general.
