Hugh McElroy

is an independent scholar and teacher based outside of Washington, DC. He has worked in local independent schools for over 20 years and now works as a part-time Latin and Theology teacher and as a creator and editor of educational materials for clients and his own students. He teaches and tutors individuals and groups and is also available for translation between English and Latin and for creation of custom teaching materials for Latin and History classes.



“A truly gifted teacher, Hugh has opened up a world of Latin language and culture for my son. In his teaching, he expertly blends deeply informed pedagogical sophistication with creative student engagement. Plus, he makes language learning just plain fun. Any student lucky enough to study with Hugh is in for a truly terrific experience.”

–  James Loeffler, Professor of History, University of Virginia

“Hugh’s long experience with Latin has been evident from my first class with him. He is an enthusiastic teacher who is both deeply knowledgeable about the language and effective at teaching it online. Each lesson is a mix of listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities, which cover new material and reinforce concepts from previous lessons. I have taken the first two of his introductory courses and plan to take more.” – Jacob P., Student (Fabulae Mythicae A&B)

“It was a really comfortable experience – I was worried about my Latin being rusty but you met me right where I was. I also could tell I was improving a ton week-to-week.” – Student (Intermediate Latin Reading – Historia Apollonii Regis Tyri)
