Overview

Howdy! I have an undergraduate degree in Classics and an MA in ancient history, and I have been teaching/tutoring since 2009. I know first-hand how much hard work can achieve, but my experience in teaching has also taught me that the work doesn't have to be so hard when a student has experienced, dedicated help. That's what I'm here for! I have done both paid and volunteer teaching, and I have worked both for myself and for a university. I have taught a wide range of students - ADD students, injured students unable to attend normal classes, struggling students - in a variety of environments. I have experience teaching to groups and individuals; face-to-face, chat-room style, and via video conferencing. I teach language because I have a passion for it, and my goal with my students, whether they are learning a new language or furthering their native English skills, is always to help them achieve their own language learning goals. I look forward to helping you achieve yours!

This is me helping with the Japan booth at Worldfest, College Station, Texas. The best way to practice language is to use it!

Experience

Private Tutor
Dec 2014 - Present
Private

I am an independent contractor with this company to tutor in English language arts, GRE exam prep, elementary math, Latin, Greek, and Japanese.

Japanese Elective Instructor
Sep 2015 - May 2016
Angles Academy

As an independent contractor I taught the middle and high school Japanese elective courses at Angles Academy, a private academy whose philosophy is that all children can learn and whose mission is to prove that with small classes and individualized teaching strategies.

Greek Teacher
Nov 2013 - Jun 2014
Self-Employed

A former teacher of mine referred a struggling high-school student of his to me. The student was ADD and had missed several classes due to illness. My job was to teach him the Greek he should have been learning in class to prepare him to rejoin his classmates in the following school-year.

Japanese Grader
Aug 2012 - May 2013
Texas A&M Dept. of International Studies

I graded assignments, quizzes, and exams for all levels of Japanese classes, excepting advanced exams.

Japanese Tutor
Jan 2012 - May 2013
Texas A&M Dept. of International Studies

I made myself available as needed to all levels of current Japanese students to help with homework, exam preparation, and study strategies. I was also occasionally asked by a teacher to teach a student who had, due to injury, illness, etc., missed too many classes to continue without extra help. My job in that case was to teach all the language which the student had missed and prepare them to continue with their classmates.

Greek/Latin Tutor
Aug 2011 - May 2013
Texas A&M University Dept. of International Studies

I made myself available at set times each week to struggling students in beginner and intermediate courses. I also allowed students to set up extra meetings outside of my set hours to help them prepare for exams.
