Bible Studies

I took numerous religious studies courses in graduate school, which focused primarily on the history of Christianity. As a Rhetoric scholar, I've studied the ecumenical councils, ars praedicandi (art of preaching), biblical history, and theological arguments of Christianity.

ESL/ESOL

I studied French for 4 years, minored in Spanish, and am currently learning Mandarin. I'm am familiar both with learning a new language as well as teaching one.

Logic

While preparing for my PhD in rhetoric, I took courses in philosophy predicated on Aristotle's work in formal logic. My own work in rhetoric includes work with Aristotelian logic. I am equipped with a thorough understanding of Logical Proofs, particularly Linear Proofs. Much of rhetoric is dependent upon Formal Logic, including syllogisms, equivalencies, constructive dilemmas, fallacies, etc. I teach formal logic in my rhetoric courses.

PSAT

As an English Professor who also performed well in science and math, I believe I could help your children prepare for the PSAT.

Public Speaking

Having a Ph.D. in Rhetoric, I've studied the great rhetoricians from Aristotle to Kenneth Burke. I teach the conventions of public speaking in the classroom and have ten years of public speaking experience. I've mentored debate teams and coached UIL impromptu speaking.

SAT Reading

I am an English Professor and fully qualified to help your child.
