Universite Nationale du Zaire &Scott Theological College (Engineer, theology)
Fuller Theological Seminary (Master's)
Claremont Grduate University (PhD)
I was born in the Democratic Republic Of Congo, and studied Civil Engineering for three years before shifting to Theology in Kenya. I then came to the USA in Pasadena where I earned a MA in Intercultural Studies with an emphasis in applied (Cultural) Anthropology. I later on attended Claremont Graduate University, where I earned a PhD in Cultural Studies with an emphasis in Cultural Anthropology. I have lived in Orange County for almost 22 years while working mostly in Los Angeles County.
For five years I worked as a social agent with the county of Los Angeles, but work now as a Christian Minister among immigrants from French speaking countries of Africa. For seven years I also helped establish an NGO helping people in the violence ravaged country of Congo. I therefore live and work in contexts where Cultural Anthropology is alwys applied.
I majored in Cultural Anthropology in my graduate studies. My work and life help me constantly apply Cultural Anthropology. When a critical student of Cultural Anthropology, I love it and keep on learning from it as a discipline.
I am opened to be reached any time, except on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday afternoon/evening, and the whole day of Sunday when I am busy in Los Angeles. Even though you can still reach me on my mobile phone to set up any time we can meet as needed.

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.
I qualify to teach or tutor Cultural Anthropology because of my academic training in the discipline. I majored in Anthropology while I was studying for my masters in Intercultural Studies. While working on my PhD, I also took the anthropological approach for my research and dissertation writing. Cognitively I am very confident. While at Claremont Graduate University, I took the yearlong "Practicum Workshops for Preparing Future Faculty". These workshops gave me the pedagogical training to teach in colleges and universities, where I will end up teaching when I get younger generations to take more responsibilities at my present work. I apply my anthropological knowledge almost every day in my work in multicultural settings of Southern California and in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I create curriculum and train leaders how to use them cross-culturally. Tutoring is not new to me. While doing Civil Engineering studies at the "Universite Nationale du Zaire", I used to tutor a number of High School students in maths and physics.
I qualify to teach or tutor religious studies because of my training in Theology in undergraduate studies and several courses in World Religions in graduates studies. As a Christian Minister, I teach the Bible on weekly basis. I also do comparative studies of major religions of the world. And I enjoy reading about religions of the world.
