University of Oklahoma (Multidiciplinary)
Here's a little background of my experience: I have worked for both the Oklahoma and Arkansas Archaeological Survey's performing lab work (cleaning, identifying, cataloging of artifacts). I have written two books, one of which deals with the Lincoln Assassination. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma and from Connors State College, Summa Cum Laude. I was a triple major: History, Anthropology (archaeology), and the Classics. The emphasis within my history major was colonial North American history. Emphasis of my Anthropology major was the trade of obsidian in Anatolia (upper Turkey). The areas of emphasis within the Classics major were ancient slavery, Roman Egypt, and education in ancient Greece.
As for my life experience and background, for 19 years I was a police officer/deputy sheriff for various cities and counties in Oklahoma. After an injury made it impossible to continue in law enforcement, I turned to college to get a new career. I am a father to one - a daughter. My career at the moment is writing non-fiction history.
I thank you for taking time to read this and I hope I can be of some help to you in the future.

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.
While attending the University of Oklahoma and of Arkansas, I worked within the Archaeological Survey's of each university. My primary duties were the cleaning, identifying, and cataloging artifacts and organic remains uncovered at various historic and pre-historic dig sites within Oklahoma and Arkansas. To do this I required a working knowledge of botany, osteology, lithics, and pottery.
Fieldwork included working at the Van Buren Civil War Artillery Emplacement and the Fort Gibson excavation sites in Arkansas and Oklahoman, respectively. I worked at the two survey's for approximately 2 years.
My education in the subject of the Classics began at the University of Oklahoma in which it was one of three majors of my Multidisciplinary Bachelors Degree. My professor/mentor was Dr. Farland Stanley who is best known for his archaeological discovery of King Herod's palace in Caesarea. My primary field of interest was Roman Egypt, however, I studied extensively the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Mesopotamians. I am also quite well versed in the topic of ancient slavery, specifically the area of pedagogy and slavery in ancient Greece.
