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

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.

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. She really enjoys teaching and has helped my son with all aspects of Latin. He is definitely more confident when taking exams and participating in class. He just received a wonderful teacher review and he looks forward to his sessions with Andrea!
