I love learning, and I love helping others learn. In addition to a record of academic success, my greatest teaching strength is a desire to encourage students to believe in their own ability to learn and succeed. I want to build confidence in students through consistent positive reinforcement. My attitude is positive and upbeat, and I believe your student can learn and succeed. Also, I communicate in a way that the student can understand. I've taught students with differing levels of ability, and I have learned how to meet each one where he/she is at.
Regarding my academic qualifications, I graduated near the top of my class in high school, college, and graduate school (seminary, to be precise). I was awarded Jamestown College's top scholarship, the Wilson Scholarship. I was also honored by the faculty of Dallas Theological Seminary with the Merrill F. Unger award for excellence in Old Testament scholarship.
I have taught in a variety of settings. I tutored freshman composition and algebra while in college. I have taught elementary Sunday school as well as junior- and senior-high youth group. For five years I taught adult Sunday school classes which typically numbered between 60-80 students. I was also an instructor at the Center for Biblical Studies in Dallas, Texas.
I specialize in test preparation (e.g., ACT, GRE, ASVAB), English grammar, writing, literature, arithmetic and algebra, and all elementary-school subjects.
Regarding my background, I grew up on a farm near Northwood, North Dakota. I have an older sister and younger brother. I love reading and movies and Twins baseball. I have a wonderful wife and four wonderful children. My wife and I have lived in North Dakota, Montana, Texas, and now Minnesota.
I look forward to hearing from you!
I have a Master's degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, academic ministries track with co-emphases in Old Testament and Historical Theology. I was awarded the Merrill F. Unger award for outstanding Old Testament scholarship. I also completed a Bible degree at the Association Free Lutheran Bible School (unaccredited).
As part of my Th.M. (Master of Theology) degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, I completed five semesters of biblical Greek. I learned basic and advanced morphology, syntax, and grammar; I learned hundreds of vocabulary words; and I learned how to use various tools for reading and interpreting Greek text.
As part of my Th.M. (Master of Theology) degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, I completed six semesters of biblical Hebrew. I learned basic and advanced morphology, syntax, and grammar; I learned hundreds of vocabulary words; and I learned how to use various tools for reading and interpreting Hebrew text. I wrote my master's thesis on the subject of discourse linguistics as it relates to the biblical Hebrew verbal system.
I have seminary training at a Protestant graduate school (Dallas Theological Seminary). I studied for two years at an unaccredited Bible school. I also have five years' teaching and pastoral experience as a vocational clergyman.
During my freshman year of college, I completed a Study Skills course which included advanced note-taking techniques, study strategies, time-management principles, and suggestions for creating a successful mindset toward school. Applying what I learned in my Study Skills course helped me to succeed academically in both my undergraduate and graduate studies. Having practiced these techniques, strategies, and principles over my nine years of undergraduate and graduate studies, I can share my study-skills expertise with students who are struggling with school and with students who simply want to improve their academic approach.
