About Dillon

I am currently a Master's student at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena studying for a Master's of the Arts in Theology. I obtained my Bachelor's degree (theology) from Colorado Christian University. During my time at university I've been required to write short and concise opinion pieces, research assignments ranging in length from 3-15 pages in length and digest extremely technical material, boiling it down into a response often no longer than 400 words. In most cases I've done very well.

During my tenure of learning (read: also outside of academic life) I've come to the conclusion that the best way to begin learning a new subject is inductively. It is better to have the student realize the concept for his or herself, with as much guidance as necessary, rather having a specific formula taught or memorizing specific rules in specific cases. In circumstances where rote memorization is necessary it is important to keep the tasks brief and to build on the material inductively.

I offer English and composition based tutoring up to college level. Maths or sciences are accepted or rejected based on grade level or concept.

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.

Grammar

I am a second year Master's student. I possess a Bachelor's degree in the Arts, and have written numerous papers ranging from three to fifteen pages, and generally receive high marks. My crowning achievement in this respect was a 504 level final paper that received perfect marks. Additionally, I have informally reviewed papers for my peers on several occasions.


*I'd like to note that choosing three instead of 3 is a grammatical point as until you get into three digit numbers (100+) it is improper to use numeral script.

Reading

As a Master's student with a Bachelor's degree I have spent significant time reading, and while thousands of pages have been required, I enjoy reading thoroughly and have read numerous novels for relaxation (I enjoyed the Hunger Games series so much that I read each book in a single day). Aside from grammatical and syntactical comprehension, I am able (and consistently required) to take large portions of text (3-25 or so pages) and boil down the narrative or argument in such a way that I can tackle critical questions that don't directly pertain to the reading, but rather draw from it, and complete them, maintaining a 200-400 word limit.

Religion

I possess a Bachelors of the Arts in Theology from Colorado Christian University and am currently working on my Masters of the Arts in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. My area of expertise is Christianity though I have understanding of world religions. Additionally, I have access to the David Allen Hubbard Library at Fuller - one of the top theological libraries in the world - and thus have access to a litany of resources.
