I have been a private sector educator for the past 13 years in all subjects listed. I have aging parents and need to stick close to home so tutoring is a great appeal for this older educator. I am nearing Single Subject State Credential in Latin (this Summer, 2011) have a BA in Classics (UCI), and MA in Classics (UH), and have completed all course work toward my PhD in Classics (UCI). However, life and the need for a full time job prevented me from completing my PhD, but it gave me the work experience necessary to discover my love for teaching and working with our future leaders of tomorrow.
