I am 42 years old, married, and the father of one 11 year old son. I have primarily a religious studies background, but I currently also teach English and Language Arts to middle school students. The program I teach involved ACT- and SAT-readiness as well.

I love to teach! Any time I can help someone "turn the light bulb on," it is a fulfillment for me. I have teaching background in math and science as well.

I look forward to helping students! I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I teach ACT preparation English currently, and I am also taking certification classes to be certified in the ACT with the company I currently work for. This will definitely cement my abilities for ACT English.

Bible Studies

I have a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Biblical Languages. I also have an M.Div., which focuses on Pastoral Theology. I have also been in pastoral roles for 10 years.

English

I currently teach English at the Middle School level. I am also a published author, poet, and editor. I am also working on my Ph.D., which demands the best English communication.

Grammar

I teach English grammar at the middle school level, and I also help students on the side with their grammar skills. I also work with companies editing manuscripts.

Literature

With bachelor's and master's degrees in my repertoire, I feel I am very exposed to a variety of literature genres. Literature is a core component of my degrees and of my current teaching position. Literature is a favorite subject of mine.

Public Speaking

I teach daily at a middle school, teaching English Language Arts. Each day, I follow a scripted outline through which I teach six sections of English students, for approximately an hour per section. I have also preached from the pulpit to groups ranging from 12 to 300, as a preacher.

Reading

I have been reading for 35 years plus. I read on the enjoyment level, and the scholarly level. I also tutor people in reading on the side.

Religion

I have studied religion and Bible on both the formal and informal levels for over 20 years. My bachelor's degree is in Biblical Studies and religious studies, and my Master's degree is in Pastoral studies and theology. I have studied church history as well, and understand, to some extent, the major theological traditions.

Writing

I am a published writer and author. I also am working on my Ph.D. which demands writing at its best. I also help college and master's level students with their writing, as a consultant and editor.
