I have five years of experience working closely with authors, publishers, and copyright holders during the editorial and publishing stages of multiple now-published volumes. I have published two articles and have six more in process.
I hold three Master's degrees. I have worked for the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, Yale Classics Library, Sterling Memorial Library, and the Cuneiform Commentaries Project for the Yale Babylonian Collection. I have applied for and received numerous grants, fellowships, and scholarships, and I have written countless research papers and successful college-level and graduate-level application essays. I have studied modern and Classical Hebrew, Classical Ethiopic, Aramaic, Classical and Koine Greek, Classical and Medieval Latin, and German.
I love to help students learn, to sharpen their existing skills and develop an excitement about the things that they (have to) do. Tutoring allows me to help students reach their potential and fulfill their aspirations. I have taught college-level courses and tutored students in ancient and modern languages. I am patient and flexible, willing to work with each student's individual learning style.
I have published, edited manuscripts of others' soon-to-be-published works, presented my own work at regional and national conferences, and lectured undergraduate and graduate courses. Communicating to a reader and communicating to an audience require distinct styles. I have done both with success and can help others identify the difference and be successful themselves.
My undergraduate degree and three Master's degrees are all in religious studies. I have extensive experience with ancient Mesopotamian religions as well as Judaism and Christianity.
My schedule is quite flexible, and I am always eager to assist. Please let me know if you have any questions or want to set up an appointment!

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.
