About Erik

I am an anthropologist with extensive international experience. I lived and studied in Germany for two years. Recently, I lived in Kazakhstan for over a decade and became a specialist in their proverbs and folktales. Currently, I am an adjunct professor at Azusa Pacific University.

I have taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. My specialty is fitting my teaching approach to my student's strengths. I have experience tutoring in philosophy, German, and Koine Greek. As an anthropology professor, I have also tutored some of my students.

I enjoy tutoring using learner-focused methods that fit the widest variety of students. My students enjoy my interactive approaches that help them focus, interact, and maximize learning. I would be delighted to tutor you in anthropology or theology.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Anthropology

I have a Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies and I concentrated on linguistic as well as cultural anthropology in my studies. I am currently teaching cultural anthropology to undergraduate students at Azusa Pacific University. I am also adjunct faculty at Biola University where I have taught graduate students. As a professor I have lectured, facilitated group research, tutored individual students, and provided input as well as feedback on research papers.

Bible Studies

I have a Master of Divinity from Bethel University and studied Koine Greek as well as Hebrew. I served as a missionary for over a decade and gained in experience in both working with and in writing my own Bible studies. I am an ordained pastor and am part of the teaching/preaching team at Pasadena Four Square Church.

Religion

I have my Master of Divinity degree, which included course in Bible, systematic theology. As part of my doctoral studies I researched Islam and took two theology classes. Finally, as an anthropologist teaching on culture and ritual, I have had to present on a wide range of world religions and rituals.
