I attended a non-denominational Christian liberal arts college, at which I took courses in Old Testament, New Testament, and Christian Doctrine. I am well versed in theology and biblical interpretation.
I have several years of experience in preparing healthy, organic, vegetarian cuisine. Cooking vegetarian does not mean your food has to bland and boring. I specialize in soups, curries, and stews, and also can teach you the basics of bread baking, cheese making, yogurt making, and how to make your own granola. I utilize farmer fresh ingredients whenever necessary. Learn to cook with me and eating can once again be a healthy, fun, and savory activity. Fees will vary for cooking classes, as most dishes include a good deal of passive time (ie: rate will be reduced).
I also offer meal plans with ingredient lists. Tired of getting stuck in a rut? I can make you a personal meal plan for a week's worth of dinners at a time.
I have a B.A. in English Literature and graduated as the top English major in my department. I can help prep for literature tests and or expository papers from high school to college level classes. I am well versed in British novels, Irish poetry and literature, Contemporary International Novels, modern and contemporary American poetry, and American literature, especially Faulkner.
I have a highly proven method for improving both study skills and organization (the two go hand in hand). Having graduated college summa cum laude (3.95 GPA), I have seen the benefit of my study methods time and again. I focus on how to use time efficiently for the greatest benefit. Studying for hours on end will not help you absorb more information. Rather, I focus on a rotating study schedule that allows both the conscious and unconscious mind to better interpret and retain information. Set up a session with me and we can talk further about my methods.
As a college composition instructor, literature major, former writing tutor, and creative writing graduate student, I have experience in everything from the mechanics of grammar to the rhythm of poetry. I can teach rhetorical analysis as well as literary explication. I have several approaches to teaching that adapt to the student's learning style and confidence with writing.
