I have personal experience tutoring the SAT verbal section, writing, algebra, all major subjects within the social studies, Spanish, and English as a second language. By trade, I am a certified high school Social Studies and Spanish teacher with five years of experience in the classroom, including one year spent teaching abroad in Chile. I currently teach Advanced Placement United States History and Criminology. Additionally, I have state certifications as both a K-6 general elementary teacher and as a teacher of English/Language Arts (ELA) in grades 5-8.
