She was educated at Middlebury College and Columbia University where she majored in Classics but studied a blend of languages, literature, and social justice issues. She joined My Tutor and Me in 2005.

Her tutoring experience has spanned a wide array of subject matters and needs, from cultivating bilingualism in a preschooler to designing and teaching an original SAT curriculum to a class full of high school juniors out of a kitchen (in which each student improved at least 140 points and the most-improved increased by almost 400 points!). She is passionate about teaching the logic underlying languages and accurate linguistic usage, especially in the contexts of Latin and SAT preparation. She also has a fondness for teaching AP subjects, having taken 9 AP Tests herself as a high school student.

Cheng lives in New York and is also working on an ongoing labor rights project, learning to dance ballet, and attempting to cook her own food.

Erika: Latin
Special area: Piano Tutoring
Located in North Conway, NH

Latin TutorErika holds her certification and credentials in Connecticut and California as a Secondary Latin teacher. She earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Classical Studies and Secondary Education from Regis College in Weston, MA in 2002. Erika grew up in Redding, CT and hasn’t stopped studying Latin since her first class in 7th grade! She fell in love with the Roman Empire’s language, unique culture, and the brilliant people who lived in the Roman Empire. Now her middle school students are drawn by the same excitement and passion and share it with her; excelling not only in the classroom, but also at CT State Latin Day, COLT poetry contests, and the National Latin Exam.

Erika helps her students learn and retain Latin by making it easy to remember associations, using mnemonic devices, and breaking the concepts down to become more logical by utilizing flash cards, charts, and color to visually and mentally organize the intensive grammar into a student’s mind. Of course, Erika always manages to keep it fun and enjoyable at the same time!

Erika belongs to several professional associations including the American Classical League (ACL), Connecticut Organization of Latin Teachers (COLT), Classical Association of New England (CANE) and the Vergilian Society. Erika has done extensive work associated with the Cambridge Latin Course during her summers. She spent a week at Tufts University in 2003 continuing her education and sharing the latest advances in teaching Latin with her colleagues. In 2004, she spent two weeks with members of the Vergilian Society exploring villas, palaces, forts, gardens, museums, and archaeological sites of Roman Britain.

Erika hopes to head to Italy next summer to assist archaeologists in the excavations of the Ancient buried city of Pompeii.

Erika enjoys playing competitive volleyball, waterskiing, jet-skiing, snow-skiing, mountain biking, chaperoning annual trips to Italy, visiting National Parks around the United States, and frequent trips to Maine to visit her family.
