...The humanities courses I have taught encompass a variety of disciplines, including sociology, art history, literature, anthropology, and film. In addition, I have taught psychology at the graduate level.

I have a bachelor's degree in Latin American Studies and a Master's in the Art of Teaching so writing is my specialty.

All have learned how to sound like a native US speaker.
