My background in tutoring began 10 years ago. I teach Latin at a private school to grades 12 from an introductory level to an advanced level. I also have extensive experience tutoring students in AP Latin reading Vergil's The Aeneid. I also teach English grammar, and have experience tutoring in this area as well.
I have received two teaching credentials from University of California Irvine for Multiple Subjects and Latin. Therefore I am qualified to both teach and tutor K-6 in most any subject and any level of Latin. I also have a Masters in teaching.
My background in tutoring also includes training for tutoring students with ADD and ADHD as well as teaching study skills at all levels (through college). Please contact me if you have any questions.
Part of my experience with ADD and ADHD students comes from my work as an Academic Coach at the College Blueprint, where I received training to work with these students specifically on study skills. However, I have had students whom I tutored through University High School with ADD who take Latin. I have been able to help them meet their academic goals and become more efficient in their study habits. I have worked one on one with these students on organizing their notes, daily schedules, and helped them keep track of assignments and test dates.
I have a Bachelors of Arts in Classics from UCI.
I have a Preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential valid for general subjects at the elementary level.
I have ESL appropriate Teaching credentials - Multiple Subject (elementary) with English Language Authorization; and Latin (secondary). I addition I have a Masters degree in Education and a B.A. in Classics.
During my career as a candidate in the multiple subject teaching program at UCI, I received ELA authorization. I took a course in which I learned the best practices to develop students' phonemic awareness.
I have excellent grammatical skills due to many years of studying Latin, ancient Greek, and Italian. Although those are either ancient and/or foreign languages, having learned those, my English writing/speaking skills are on par. I was the proofreader for my team thesis when I was in my Masters of Teaching Program at UCI. Our team got the highest score possible, and had no grammatical/stylistic/syntactical corrections.
I have a teaching credential in Multiple Subjects, which allows me to teach in a classroom from grades K-6. I have taken a reading course during which I learned the guidelines to teach students how to read from learning the alphabet to actual composition in older grades. I have one year of teaching under my belt, which includes teaching reading to grade three.
I have received training in how to instruct students in study skills to enhance their academic potential.
I have Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with EL Authorization and Latin Teaching Credential.
