What is really important:
I'm nice. I'm friendly. I smile a lot. I'm patient. I have confidence in you, even though I haven't met you. I believe in helping people find the best in themselves.

Other items of interest:I currently own a yoga studio and enjoy teaching yoga from both a practical and academic perspective. I have practiced yoga for 10+ years and have been teaching for around 3.

I have taught college courses in composition, reading, literature, humanities, art, public speaking, and basic math and study skills, among others. While pursuing my degrees I taught an after-school elementary program, substituted in preschool, and volunteered in an alternative education high school.

Educational/Academic Experience:I have a Master's in Comparative Literature specializing in English and Latin, a BA in Comp Lit with a minor in American and British Literature, and a certificate as an Associate Teacher of Early Childhood Education. I am currently completing a graduate certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). I also have units in French and ASL. My literary scholarship had been published in journals and one book.

I am presenting a paper on the use of World Literature, Early Childhood Education, and Yoga as a subject-independent teaching methodology at the annual PAMLA conference in 2013.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Literature

My bachelor's was in Comparative Literature with a minor in English and American Literature. My master's was also in Comp Lit. I taught literature and writing at a college level for two years. I have presented at literary conferences and have had essays published in literary journals and one book of essays on T. S. Eliot.

Yoga

I began taking yoga at my community college in 2003 and continued until I was no longer allowed to enroll through the community college! Following this I began taking yoga in studio environments until completing a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Instructor Certification in early 2011. I am currently an E-RYT200, or Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, registered w/ the Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. I also own my own yoga studio, Type A Yoga, and created and designed the curriculum for our teacher training program, Upama Yoga.
