About Andrea

As a background, I am an effective, caring and dedicated credentialed teacher of the Classics and English.

I adhere to the core teaching philosophy that all people can achieve academic excellence if they are provided opportunities for rigorous instruction, high standards, informed guidance, and individual attention.

I am a trained Classicist having begun my studies of Latin in the late 80's when I was high school sophomore. I continued my love of languages majoring in Classics with a Latin emphasis at UC Irvine, next obtaining a second degree in Classical civilization, and then obtaining my single subject teaching credential at San Diego State University.

Finally I have firsthand knowledge of the Classical world having spent 2 1/2 years living in Athens, Greece while studying at the American College of Greece. I have also spent extensive time studying Italian in and out of Italy. My own efforts to master Italian keeps me up to date with the joys and pitfalls while learning a second language. I am a TESOL and CLAD credentialed English as a Second Language teacher.

I am available to tutor (and teach independent students) the subjects of Latin, Ancient Greek, support students in their Italian, tutor and edit English. I work within a 20 minute driving distance from the zip code 92121. Tutoring rates to other areas can be negotiated to include driving time.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a preliminary teaching California teaching credential where I am highly qualified to teach English up to the 9th grade level. I am also certified to teach English language learners with my CLAD (Cross Cultural, Language and Academic Development) certification qualifies me to teach English Language Learners-a study I completed at San Diego State University as well as the University of California, San Diego. Next, I have also married into a family who speaks a language other than English at home. I often help my native Italian speaking husband and sister-in-law navigate the cultural and structural challenges of living the life of an ex-patriot. As my in-laws do not speak English often translate and explain English documents and American culture to them. Finally I am proficient in the grammatical and syntactical aspects of English. As the study of the Classics teaches one the nuances of Latin to find the appropriate English translation I am very well versed in the English language.

Thankful to have Andrea as a Latin tutor! — Andrea has been helping my son with his Latin for several months. She is always gracious and patient.

He just received a wonderful teacher review and he looks forward to his sessions with Andrea! ...
