I have been teaching college level courses now since January of 1998; my subject of expertise is in Philosophy, Religion, Theology and Humanities.

I have lived overseas in Europe and the Middle East for a number of years as well as having served three tours in Iraq as a Psychological Operations Expert.

My unique experiences have allowed me to share in depth studies in Philosophy, Theology and Religion in the classroom not afforded to most students and/or undergraduates. Furthermore, it provides me the opportunity to teach skills necessary for students to research, critique, and think for themselves. I believe by integrating etymology, philosophy, theology, and history students are able to formulate a personal worldview, as well as understand and comprehend the philosophical and theological worldviews of other individuals, cultures, and societies.

I know that at this point in my career, I am young enough to relate to younger as well as older students in order to meet their expectations, ideals, and needs. In addition, my military experience has provided me the opportunity to work with people of diverse ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds, not only within the United States, but also abroad (i.e. North Africa, Central America, Europe, and most recently the Middle East). My vast Army experience has afforded me the proficiency needed to teach the various disciplines with discernment and sensitivity; which is a must in today’s multicultural classroom.

I believe my formal studies, teaching experience, world travels, continuing education, and my passion for learning are a personal calling and not just a career and would be a great asset to your academic endeavors.

I have Masters Level Studies (MA in Philosophy of Religion and Religion) in Systematic Theology, Philosophical Theology, Biblical History and Apologetics.

I have taught Biblical studies formally at the college level for College students in various Campus Clubs, Organizations and Associations, as well as in various Churches for Adult Sunday School studies.



Bodybuilding

I am a US Army Fitness Instructor and am AMFPT Certified. I am a Personal Fitness Instructor with over 25 years of experience.

I have trained others with Static Contraction Training Principles, Power Factor Training Principles and High Intensity Training Principles.

The Goal of any Fitness or bodybuilding plan is to achieve ones goals by training Smarter, not necessarily harder.

Classics

I am a college professor who has been teaching formally since 1998, not only within the college classroom, but has also taught in seminars for variations corporations in areas of Ethics and Critical thinking.

I taught and continue to teach classes at the college level on:

Introduction to Philosophy; from Pre-Socratic Philosophy, continuing to Socrates, Plato and Aristotle and into Medieval and Modern day thought.

Introduction to Ethics as well as Business Ethics (Concentrating on Business and medical Ethics. Some of the Theories covered: Objectivism, Utilitarianism, Divine Command Theory, Deontology and Social Darwinism)

I am presently teaching classes on World and Comparative Religions; I cover and explore the principle doctrines, behavior and sphere of influence of Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Shinto, Daoism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Tribal and New Age Religions. I also cover some minor but well known Worldviews relevant to present day society, such as Satanism, Paganism and Wicca to name but a few.

I teach Epistemology and the various competing claims on what is "Truth." Is understanding Truth possible? Areas covered include Rationalism, Fideism, Skepticism, Empiricism and Apriorism. Much of what I cover in Epistemology covers Philosophical thought from the Ancient Greek Philosophers to Medieval thought, the Enlightenment Period, and Protestant Reformation and into present day issues such as Relativism, Multiculturalism and Exclusivism as it concerns Truth in Worldviews.

I also teach Critical Thinking, concentrating on Informal Fallacies as well as using Critical Thinking in evaluating Political Claims, Media and Entertainment, Religious Truth Claims and Competing Worldviews.

European History

I can help with Renaissance, Protestant Reformation and Ancient Greek History.

Fitness

I am a US Army Fitness Instructor and am AMFPT Certified.I am a Personal Fitness Instructor with over 25 years of experience.

Greek

I learned formal Greek (Writing, Reading & Speaking) as my first language as a native while leaving in Greece.

I continued Greek Studies at the University of Illinois @ Chicago and Koine Greek Studies at the Graduate level at Seminary for Theological Studies.

I worked for three years as a Translator and Interpreter for a Private Greek firm in Chicago using Greek to English and English to Greek for Commercial, Political and Historical purposes.

I have been designated as a “Level II” Greek Speaker, Writer and Reader for the US Army.

My tutoring is especially suited for those who need proper pronunciation of Formal Greek for Business and Commercial reasons as well as Historical and Theological purposes.

Philosophy

My formal education in Philosophy has been at both undergraduate (B.A. Philosophy) and graduate level(Philosophy of Religion).

My area of specialty is: Ancient Greek Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, Critical Thinking, Epistemology, Metaphysics, Ethics and Apologetics.

I have formally taught Philosophy since January of 1998.

In all of my classes, I incorporate History, Religion, Culture and Etymology for a better and more thorough understanding of the subject matter. I present all the Philosophies in such a way, that the learner is able to make the connection between theory and practical considerations, helping the scholar bridge ideas from hundreds and thousands of years ago into a modern and contemporary worldview.

My aim in Philosophy is not merely teaching Philosophy, but rather Doing and Experiencing Philosophy; in the same manner as Socrates did with his audience.

Religion

I am presently teaching classes on World and Comparative Religions; I cover and explore the principle doctrines, behavior and sphere of influence of Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Shinto, Daoism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Tribal and New Age Religions.

I also cover some minor but well-known worldviews relevant to present day society, such as Satanism, Paganism and Wicca to name but a few.

I have also taught classes for a private Christian Liberal Arts College in the Chicago-land area.

The classes I taught included Biblical Worldviews, Biblical Perspectives, Christian Theology and History.

I have taught classes in various churches of differing denominations for adults in areas of Christian Apologetics (Both, defense of the Christian worldview from within Christianity and from without), covering topics of truth as it relates to worldviews, issues of science and faith, and evaluation of modern day religious movements in the US.

I have also taught World Religions for various professional organizations that are looking to better understand their foreign audience for greater communication and understanding in realizing their business needs in an ever increasing world market.

World History

I specialize in Western humanities and Western civilizations. I can help with ancient Near-east to Renaissance (Explore Humanities from an integrated approach of History, Philosophy and Religion.)
