Hello! I'm Lena. I am a Berkeley native, and I absolutely love tutoring Latin. I took 4 years of Latin with Ms. Herndon at Berkeley High and minored in Latin at UC Davis (majored in Environmental Toxicology). I am delighted to be in the Bay Area working with so many wonderful families in the community. I've tutored Latin students enrolled at Berkeley High School, Miramonte High in Orinda, and the Pacific Boys Choir School in Oakland. I also helped Mr. Piazza, the current Berkeley High Latin teacher, develop transitional curriculum when he took over the BHS Latin program in 2014. In addition to Latin, I am available for tutoring in Mathematics, (AP)Chemistry, (AP)Biology, Environmental Sciences and Writing. I also like to incorporate study skills and time management techniques into whatever subject I am tutoring. I offer flexible rates and can provide references upon request. Please email me at lenachervin [at] for more information. Lena Chervin lenachervin[at]

I am a Berkeley PhD looking to teach students in Elementary or Advanced Latin. Several of my students are currently reading Tacitus in Latin, but I would be very happy to start a new group or meet one on one to help students discover Latin. I also teach Greek and Roman history and mythology. Ipsa scientia potestas est?Knowledge itself is power. Gaius Stern gaius[at] 510.644.1177

I majored in Classics (Latin and Ancient Greek) at UC Santa Cruz and completed some graduate work in Classics at Yale University. I have been tutoring Latin for more than twenty years and enjoy working with students of all levels-- beginning to advanced. I tutor in Berkeley and the surrounding cities. Patrick Gordis pgordis[at]
