Ph.D. At Your Service
I am that teacher you had that loves her (or his or their) job so much that you never questioned why they chose a career in education. I left a promising career in the business world to get my M.A. and Ph.D. because I felt called to the classroom. And I have never once regretted it!

I am that teacher you had that loves her (or his or their) job so much that you never questioned why they chose a career in education. I left a promising career in the business world to get my M.A. and Ph.D. because I felt called to the classroom. And I have never once regretted it! I am an academic, but I like to think of myself as a professional thinker. My personal and professional studies have been steeped in the humanities, which means that I have mostly kept busy by reading masterworks and writing about their modern implications.
The bulk of my professional experience has come from teaching over the past 3 years at the high school level. The school that I currently work at is a private high school that focuses on kids with learning differences, primarily individuals with ADD and language-based learning challenges, such as dyslexia. I have created curriculum and taught the following subjects at the high school level: Government & Economics, US History, World History, Mythology, and Literature. In addition to this traditional experience, I have tutored adults and youth in shelter situations.
I also have experience tutoring and lecturing at the collegiate level. I have been invited to lecture at several different colleges on the following subjects: Humanistic & Transpersonal Psychology, Depth Psychology, Comparative Mythology, and Native American History. My goal is to be a full-time college professor in the field of religious studies, humanities, global studies, or psychology; therefore, I believe I would be a good fit for any college students in search of a tutor closely related to any of the subjects mentioned above.
Another service I am happy to provide is proofreading and editing. Starting way back in my undergraduate days I worked in a writing center proofing and editing essays. Of course, as a teacher I do the same sort of thing on a daily basis. During graduate school my colleagues and I would proof and edit for one another to make sure our work was up to standards. I am familiar with APA and MLA styles, and am willing to learn other college or university specific styles for bigger works, if the project seems interesting enough to me. I have had a few things published, but I would say that the bulk of my experience proofreading and editing has come from my academic career as a student and teacher.
I am originally from Minnesota, but moved out West for college. I have a Bachelor's degree in Humanities, with an emphasis in Psychology, from Sierra Nevada College. My Master's degree is in Mythological Studies and has an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. My Ph.D., which is also from Pacifica, is in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Depth Psychology. My dissertation is available on ProQuest and is titled, "Peering Down the Bottomless Well: Myth in Thomas Mann's Joseph Tetralogy."
I believe that I am uniquely suited to help individuals who are looking to strengthen their critical thinking capabilities, alongside their reading and writing skills. I prefer working with learners that are high school aged or older, and am also open to working with people following passion projects.
If I sound like someone that can help you with something please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for your time.

Dan helped me craft various cover letters and polish my resume. He also took the time to look over a few business plans that I am working on. He is a good guy and was really flexible around my schedule. I highly recommend him!Kelsy, 2 lessons with Daniel
