I hold a doctorate in history from The University of Michigan, have passed written doctoral examinations in classics at Johns Hopkins, and have extensive teaching experience in history (many fields including U.S.), humanities, and ancient languages at The University of Illinois, NYU, Fordham,and elsewhere. I have tutored privately in many of these fields. I proceed from the known to the unknown, use easily memorable approaches, review often by putting the same material in other terms, and use flexible individually tailored methods. I start by getting the student's background and specific goals and later ask questions along the lines of the test or course for which the student is studying. I anticipate potential problems, such as language, based on the student's background. I am not without a sense of humor, and I vary my approaches where appropriate. I know where memorization is necessary and I draw on my extensive and varied experience.
I have taught American history at several colleges and have been employed as a researcher for 25 years at a local historical society.
I hold a doctorate in ancient history from The University of Michigan and have passed written doctoral examinations in classics, including classical linguistics and Latin literature, at The Johns Hopkins University. I have taught Latin at The University of Illinois and classical Greek at Seton Hall University. I have published two scholarly books and over forty journal articles, have read many papers at scholarly conferences, and have tutored in ancient Greek and Latin.
Substantial college teaching experience in this and related areas.
