This note made me happy:

“We just made the decision (rather reluctantly ) last weekend to be done with Latin.  Henry is entering his junior year and is beginning some college courses for dual credit.  You have had a positive powerful influence on Henry’s education from Visual Latin to Roma Aeterna, and I greatly appreciate all your hard work. For awhile you were his only other teacher besides me!  He tested for honors English at our local community college and I know your Latin teachings contributed to his excelling in English.”

Notes like this keep me going…

The Latin and Greek world can be a lonely world of dry, dusty books.  Notes like this keep me going:

“I just wanted to let you know that I am loving your classes! I say that in the plural form because even though I am really taking the Lingua Latina class, I am also watching Henle 2 videos as well. I love reading through the Gallic Wars and find your maps and your explanations so helpful and interesting. Oh yes, I am also taking your Matthew class. This is all possible because of you! I thank you so much. Your classes and knitting are my favorite things to do. Thank you so much. You are a Godsend to me.”

Made me happy…

We subscribed to your classes in January because my son needed some extra help with the class he was taking locally.  He never got to participate in an online class because your class was much farther ahead in the book. But he loved watching the online videos.  You explained everything so clearly and made things much simpler to understand than Mr. Henle did.  He appreciated being able to go back and re-watch videos with concepts that were harder.

I want to thank you so much for giving him the help he needed this spring!

Found this note today while grading….

You made her year of Latin so much better than if we had attempted it alone!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

You should know that my daughter received a Gold Summa Cum Laude award this evening for her NLE this year. She missed 3 on the Latin 1 test, and her younger sister by 2 years missed 5 on the Intro. What a surprise to mom!  Thanks for making a difference!

This is our first online class, and I have to say that I am beyond impressed that our teacher who is somewhere out in the Internet world actually knows who we are!  I have always figured that you had so so many students….never would I have dreamed that you would know us the way you do.  Thanks for being personal, even if we never meet face to face!

Why I do what I do….

I received this note from the parent of an online student:

Thank you so much!  As someone who is part of my “educational team” for my kids, you should know my daughter received a Gold Summa Cum Laude award this evening for her NLE this year. She missed 3 on the Latin 1 test, and her younger sister by 2 years missed 5 on the Intro. What a surprise to mom!  Thanks for making a difference!

Not sure about the online Latin classes? This may help…

This note made me happy:

Let me start by telling you how happy I am to have found your website!!  You have totally revolutionized the way we study Latin in my home. 🙂  This will be my 4thyear being a Challenge director for Classical Conversations, therefore 4 years of trying to diligently learn Latin in order to teach both my students in class and my 4 children at home.  Even though I actually enjoy learning Latin, it has been an uphill battle using Henle Latin.  But now that I have been watching (and re-watching) your videos I feel like it’s finally starting to truly make sense.  You have a remarkable teaching style…and it just clicks!!  Thank you!! 🙂

Last year I really wanted my older Challenge level kids to join in on your Henle classes, but unfortunately the finances just weren’t there (even though your prices were SUPER reasonable, especially with your sibling discounts).  However, when you opened your site to a family rate, I just couldn’t pass it up.  I prayed about it, and God provided (He is so good)!!  Well, being the one-income, frugal homeschooling family that we are, we get our money’s worth…with everything!! 😉  Last year we would have ONLY gone through Henle.  However…since you’ve opened your website to include ALL of your classes, and since I have discovered so many wonderful gems in terms of learning language with your videos, I am having my kids view many of your other classes as well.  (I am not quite sure they are as excited about all the classes you offer as I am, since in their minds that equates to ‘more school.’ 😉  But I do know that they are learning so much more than they could ever have gotten with just doing Henle.)  As a family, we have added Lingua Latina and love it!!  And even though my kids may grumble sometimes when I call them to watch a video, they giggle their way through them.  You throw out so many interesting tidbits.  I just love the conversations it opens up for us!   

Even though my 10 year old’s main Latin curriculum is Visual Latin, she enjoys watching and reading/listening to Lingua Latina as well.  I am absolutely amazed at how quickly she is picking Latin up with your videos.  She absolutely loves VL, even now that we have reached lesson 13 and it’s starting to get more intense for her.  But that’s o.k., she has plenty of time….and we are just taking it slowly.  You truly have a wonderful God-given gift of teaching and relating to kids.  Thank you so much for making learning Latin fun!!

I know you are a super busy guy, and I am sorry that this letter is so long, I just really wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all that you do: making a great service extremely affordable (especially to families with multiple children), making learning Latin FUN, and providing great content in all of your classes.
