"I have always had very strong language skills. In high school, I excelled in Spanish and French, taking two years of each, and then continuing during my first two years in college.

At UCLA as an undergraduate student majoring in History, I completed the entire course circuits on Ancient Roman History, Ancient Greek History, and Byzantine History. I also took a course on Women's History in the Ancient Mediterranean through UCLA's Classics department. Along with my studies in History, I completed three years of Latin and two years of Ancient Greek, as well as Italian, which I got to exercise on my trip to Rome and Pompeii. My senior project was a paper on Classical Linguistics--specifically on Vulgar (common) Latin--which was selected as the singular project in the class to be presented at the May 2014 meeting of the UCLA Classical Society. I even worked as a research associate, assisting my mentor with proofreading and fact-checking parts of her manuscript.

At the University of Chicago as a graduate student, I continued my studies in Latin and Ancient Greek, reading 1,000 lines of Homer's Iliad in Greek for homework some nights. I passed the Latin Reading Exam and the French Reading Exam, which qualified me to progress in the program as a TA and teach undergraduate courses. I also completed a course on reading German for research purposes.

Since graduating with my MA in Classics, I have been tutoring students in languages and social sciences. I have many former students who have successfully gone on to college or reached their academic goals, and many satisfied parents who can attest to my dedication to my students. I have also taught grades K-12 in a range of subjects at BASIS Charter School in Prescott, Arizona." less...
