"During the time I was in graduate school, I sought out any opportunity to teach, further developing my passion for this field. I began tutoring students at the Park Century School on a number of different skills. This was an especially rewarding experience for me, as I also graduated from Park Century where I had the privilege of being taught by engaging and effective teachers. As I developed a true passion for teaching, throughout the rest of the time I spent in graduate school, I looked for opportunities to teach.

Also during this time, for years, I was a substitute teacher at the Hawthorne School District. As such, I taught at nine different schools. The subjects I taught varied from math and science to history and English. During my experience at the Hawthorne School District, I taught every grade from kindergarten to high school. I have also taught at the college level when I was a teacher assistant at Santa Monica College’s anthropology department. I had the opportunity to present a series of lectures on the relationship between food and culture. I particularly enjoyed assisting students in grasping these new concepts and completing their assignments.

My bachelor's degree is in literature, communications, and media, and my master's and Ph.D. are in mythology. Mythology is a transdisciplinary field that includes literature. Some of the literature I studied while in graduate school includes the Tanach, the Christian Bible, the Ramayana, the Bhagavad Gita, Oedipus Rex, the Odyssey, Moby Dick, and the Divine Comedy.

My Ph.D. is in mythology. Mythology is a transdisciplinary field and it includes religious studies. During my graduate school education, I took courses on evolving god images and contemporary issues in the study of religion. I also took many courses on various religious traditions including the ancient Egyptian tradition, the ancient Greek tradition, the Abrahamic traditions, various Indian traditions, and several indigenous American traditions.

I hope you will consider me for tutoring." less...
