I am currently a theology teacher at Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington Virginia. I try to make my classes engaging, challenging, and thought provoking. I have my M.A. in theology/religious studies but I also studied philosophy and anthropology for my B.A. I think that my wide background is useful in relating to students on an everyday level, while at the same time I possess the necessary knowledge in my field.

I have traveled extensively through Europe, including studying for a semester in Rome. I have been on archaeological digs and missionary trips to foreign countries. I was an active athlete in college and continue to enjoy playing sports like tennis and basketball. My tutoring methods would consist of reading some difficult yet accessible material related to our topic, and then discussing and writing about it.

My experience in reading, writing and academia affords me a background that I can share with students who want to better their critical thinking and writing skills. If you have any further questions or concerns about a particular project, class, or subject that I could help with please send me a message.

Very Best,

Mr. Allen, M.A.

Anthropology

I have a B.A. from Saint Vincent College in Anthropology, and I won the highest award in my major while attending school there.

I also was president of the anthropology club at SVC, and I have traveled extensively to various cultures.

Archaeology

I studied Anthropology at Saint Vincent College where I received my B.A. (archaeology is a field included in my studies). I have participated in an archaeological dig in Tuscany Italy, in addition to visiting Native American settlements in the West and Midwest of the United States.

Bible Studies

My M.A. is in Theological Studies from the University of Dayton. I recently published an article in the Biblical studies journal: "Conversations with the Biblical World." I have been the guest lecturer and leader of several Bible Studies courses, including one entitled "Abraham and the Scandal of the Old Testament."

Classics

Although I have my B.A. in Anthropology I have studied intensely the classical period especially through my M.A. in Theology. I have focuses especially on Ancient history and philosophy and other literary works such as the Aeneid and the Odyssey. I have studied Latin and Greek as well.

Religion

I have my M.A. in Theological Studies from the University of Dayton. I currently teach engaging and challenging courses at a college prep high school. I am the founding leader of the philosophers/theologians club. I have also written and defended a thesis in this field and have published as well.

Sociology

I have a B.A. in Anthropology/Sociology from Saint Vincent College. My studies there focused on the intersection of religion and culture. I have studied various topics in this field while pursuing my B.A. and in my current role as religious studies teacher.

Tennis

I have been a tennis player since I was in high school, where I still hold the record for the most wins in a single season. I was the number one player at my high school and in the division III school which I attended. I have been a tennis camp counselor and instructor for several years and I currently assist in teaching tennis at my high school.
