John Siman


John Siman received his M.A. in (Greek and Latin) Classics from The Johns Hopkins University. He did graduate work in English and American literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as well. He teaches Latin as a living, spoken language because he believes that a student’s ability to read and enjoy the literature of any language requires an oral foundation. His Latin students consistently do exceptionally well on competitive exams, scoring 5s on the Latin AP, winning cash awards in regional translation contests, earning first-, second-, and third-place awards on the various Classical Association of Virginia exams, and winning gold medals on National Latin Exams.
