I have worked as a Latin teacher in both public and private schools for a time. Then I had the opportunity to become a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mongolia as a Teacher Trainer. I was responsible for teaching teachers in the school districts how to teach better English to their students. I organized professional developments, led an English radio show featuring original educational music, supervised English testing, taught business and college students English in the evening, and thrived in a cold but friendly environment. I then studied and graduated from George Washington University while co-teaching at the Prince George's County School District Allgebra to ELL 8th graders and later reading to ELL 1st graders.
I have taught Latin for four years after college and have always loved the subject. As a boy, Latin helped me with understanding English grammar and my reading level improved tremendously through an understanding of the language, so I know how important the subject is to the future of students. I have taught all grade levels of the subject and have designed my own curriculum for the advanced levels. I believe in a creative approach to teaching the subject through projects, designs, and incorporating all curriculum.

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.
