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.
Over the years I have read the entire Bible. I also read selections including from Psalms, the Epistles and the Book of Wisdom daily. My interest in the Bible from both a spiritual and a literary perspective began while attending Catholic high school. I have read extensively about the structure, development and history of the Bible and related topics (early Christian history, the development of Christian moral practices, early Church Fathers, the development of doctrine and so on). Authors with whom I am familiar include Rahner, Tillich, Kung, Wilson, Thomas Merton, Barth, Bultman and Pelikan.
BA from Yale in political science and history plus an MPH from UCLA. Have taken multiple courses in English, Latin, German and Greek.
Have extensive writing experience both in business settings as well as academic. Am confident of skills in English grammar.
As an undergraduate at Yale I earned a BA after majoring in political science with a minor in history. In my sophomore year I was awarded the Philo Sherman Bennett prize for best essay in a comparative government topic. After Yale (and teaching elementary school for three years) I earned an MA in public administration at the University of Iowa. I served on the founding City Council for the City of West Hollywood as both councilman and mayor for two terms (six years).
