St. John's College (Annapolis, Maryland) (Philosophy)
University of Baltimore School of Law (J.D.)
I studied philosophy and classics at St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland; I studied law at University of Baltimore School of Law.
Success in school often comes not merely from memorizing material, but from understanding the inherent structure of the material, and thus forming a method for applying the material to a new problem.
As a practicing lawyer, I discovered this critical component to learning a variety of subject areas, and I want to teach others. I have used these skills in past tutoring gigs and in other teaching-oriented activities, and I have found great success in increasing my students and clients' understanding and appreciation of materials.
I love the subjects of civics, law, history, and philosophy. I would be well suited to teach these materials at a variety of levels. I studied philosophy and classics at St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland; I studied law at University of Baltimore School of Law.

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 believe I am well suited to tutor in the subject of classics because my undergraduate degree at St. John's College was in classics. This experience, coupled with my later reading experience, taught me a great deal about reading classic literature for the author's insights in human nature coupled with what we can learn about the author's society through his or her writing. As each class in classics may have a different focus, it would be important for me to understand the motive of the class in order to direct the student properly.
