About Arlene

I have 9 years of experience as both a teacher and a tutor. I worked as a tutor and English language lecturer overseas in collaboration with a language school. I was born and raised in Italy, as such I have personal experience as a native speaker as well as past experience in tutoring in Italian and teaching adult Italian education courses.

I am certified in the state of Massachusetts to teach both history and Italian at the high school and middle school level, and I have been an active employee of a local school district for the last 4 years teaching World History, Intro to Law, African American History and Latin American History.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I have both the educational studies background in American History as well as teaching experience at the middle school and high school levels.

Biology

My original area of study in college was in the field of Biology of which I participated with good marks for two years.

European History

My concentrations in both my B.A. and my currently ongoing M.A. are in European history. I also include my life experiences as I was born and raised in Europe and traveled extensively during my time there.

Geography

As part of my history education, geography played an important factor in those studies. I also have experience on the middle school grade level for teaching geography and world cultures.

Italian

I was born and raised in Italy, with one parent being native of the country and I have the benefit of being a native speaker through my life. On an academic level, I have 4 years of university study in Italian with continuous advanced marks in all those classes.

I also have experience teaching Italian to adult education learners.

Religion

As part of the curriculum of my classes, I am required to teach the history of the 5 major religions. I have also taken several courses on religion while pursuing my degrees.

Saxophone

I have played Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones for a variety of years spanning from middle school into college. I own my own Tenor Saxophone. I would be willing and able to tutor any student taking Saxophone in any of the above three mentioned instruments.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor's in History and am currently pursuing my Master's in History as well, not to mention I have been teaching History in a public school for the last 4 years.

Swimming

I minored in Aquatic Management in college which included several courses regarding water safety. Upon completion of my degree I was certified in Lifeguard training and Water Safety Instruction which allow me to instruct all age levels in swimming.

I also competed in the European Forces Swim League for four years in high school, qualifying in two events (backstroke and butterfly). I continue to hone my skills in swim instruction and have experience in teaching both young children and older adults.

World History

For the past 5 years, I have been teaching primarily World History in the high school setting. On top of my employment experience, my B.A. was in a European history concentration and my current Master's study is in Ancient and Classical History. I also have the added benefit of having lived in overseas for most of my life, adding to firsthand knowledge and cultural immersion into the history I teach.
