I have a BA in English with a minor in Economics, an MA in English Literature, and a PhD in Modern Humanities with a minor in Classical Greek Literature, all from Florida State University. I have taught over 90 college level Composition classes at universities, 5 years in Virginia, and 1 here in Georgia. In between, I taught TEFL for 1 year in Saudi Arabia, and I taught College Composition for International Students in Bahrain for 2 years. All these appointments were (and are) full time. I have tutored foreign students living in the United States. I also specialize in SAT and GRE Verbal prep, as I received a 720 out of 800 in 1997 on the GRE Verbal (99th percentile).
I make clear to my students that, based on my IQ, I should have barely graduated from college, and yet I have reading fluency in Greek and Latin (which I can also teach) and received my PhD. Hard work and good instruction are the key to success.
I can teach Composition, TEFL, Latin, and Greek, and am happy to point you towards very good, and cheap, homeschooling curricula.
I can send you official transcripts, if needed. I am here to help you as long as you think you need me.
I took 7 graduate Greek Language and Literature classes at Florida State University with a cumulative 3.67 GPA and can submit official transcripts upon request. I also took 6 undergraduate Latin classes from Patrick Henry College with a cumulative GPA of approximately 3.8. I try to read about an hour of Koine Greek most days from the Bible.

Mark has not only taught his ...
