I am an area high school teacher and adjunct professor. For 20+ years now, I have taught and tutored in a variety of subjects, for students with differing ages and needs, and have experienced many different scenarios. I am skilled at not only teaching content quickly and efficiently, but also study skills for mastery.
Whether you want to brush up on skills in Latin, classical Greek, English, or other, or want to pass with a higher grade, I can very often help make the difference.
My work in history, English, art history, humanities, and science, and in anthropology/sociology allow me the basic information to understand the progression of humankind, types of anthropology, theoretical knowledge, etc.
My advanced degree in classics and ancient languages, my study at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, where I visited over 200 archaeological sites, qualify me for this subject.
My work with students in Latin, English, and humanities has caused me to encounter special needs students in Aspergers, who require understanding and specialized instruction. Two of my recent students were at the top of their class.
I have 8 years of experience teaching autistic and asperger's students. My daughter is high functioning autistic, and so I have unique experiences in teaching and interacting with this special needs population.
I hold an MA in classical Greek.
As a teacher of English and Latin, which has no silent letters, the use of phonics (pronouncing words by syllables and combinations of syllables -disyllables, blends, etc.) is critical. Because of this, I am well versed in this skill. In addition, I have taken coursework in morphology/phonology of language (basic linguistics) as well.
I hold 9 credits in religious studies, and completed my master's thesis in a aspect of Judaism.
