I am Dana. I am sixty-one years old and my last job was a manager of a financial records company. I have two masters degrees (Eastern Nazarene College and Gordon-Conwell School) and a few books and articles in print. I taught history, world religions and English in China and the United States. The age of my students were from 13 to 26, junior high to graduate school. I have just finished a book on how painting and photography shapes character and memory.
I have tutored Chinese, Japanese and Arabic students.
I enjoy classical music, good reading, and art.
I have a simple method for teaching. You learn learning something by using information in three different ways, three different times.
I have a master's degree in religion and another master's in New Testament Studies. I taught religious studies for one year at a Christian School and World Religions in the Massachusetts State college system. I also wrote two books on the theology of a Chinese Christian author.
I have TEFL International TESOL Certification from a school in Juhai, China. I taught English in China for nearly eight years. I have also performed the same task in The United States tutoring or in classrooms for Koreans, Japanese and Hispanic families for two years. The latter classes were in public and private schools, and churches.
I taught World Religions at Westfield State College in Massachusetts. I also have two master's degrees in New Testament (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) and Religion (Eastern Nazarene College).
I am a published author in the fields of World Religions and Chinese History. I also try to read 100 pages a day, generally in the subjects of history (England, America, China and the Middle East) and literature. My history thesis was on pacifism before World War I. A key to mastering history is learning the fascinating connections of historical events.
