Private elementary and secondary school teachers (grades 1 through 12) are exempt from overtime pay requirements if:their monthly salary
is at least twice the state minimum wage; and they hold either a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher learning, or a teaching credential from California or any other state. LaborCode § 515.8.
As a part-time employee, you cannot be considered salary-exempt from overtime under professional exemption (IWC Order 4-2001 1.(A)(3)(d)), unless you earn at least $2,773.33 per month -- regardless of the number of hours worked.
Hope this helps.
