About Judith

My love of learning informs my love of teaching. As someone who holds both a Master's degree in International Relations and a and Ph.D in Anthropology, I know that hard work pays off. I specialize in tutoring English, Reading, Writing, Literature, the Social Sciences including Anthropology, Geography and History - specifically American History.
I have mostly taught at the college level, but enjoy working with students at all levels. One of my goals in tutoring sessions is to challenge the student but not overwhelm them. I believe in assigning homework that is challenging and also providing periodic assessments and progress reports.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback and I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with the tutoring.
I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes. To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me. However, I am happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient to the student.

I look forward to hearing from you in helping you achieve success in your studies!

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.

American History

My expertise in American History includes eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth century issues. As a tutor, I will make American History fun, enjoyable and engaging!

Anthropology

First, I hold a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Northwestern University. Second, I have taught Anthropology at the university level at Northwestern University and Loyola University in Chicago. Most recent I taught the Introduction to Cultural Anthropology at American University in Washington, D.C. Finally, I am also very active as a researcher working on issues concerning debt, sexual violence in South Africa and the United States and HIV and AIDS in the United States and South Africa.

English

In terms of reading and writing in English, I have written articles and published in peer-reviewed journals. In addition, I have taught English and mentored students with writing.

Geography

As an anthropologist, I am knowledgeable about various cultures and societies globally as well as history and geographical influences.

Government & Politics

I have an extensive background in political science, and knowledge about government and politics in the United States and internationally.

Political Science

As an undergraduate, I minored in Political Science. I also have a Master's Degree in International Relations- which involves discussion of political institutions and political frameworks. As an anthropologist I research and write about the political contexts of a society in order to understand cultures and societies.

Proofreading

I am a writer and editor for articles in academic journals. As an editor, I proofread and correct writing for those authoring articles.

Writing

My writing experience is very extensive. I have taught writing to people of all ages from school aged children to college students, graduate students and older adults.
I hold a Ph.D. and write professionally and have been published in various academic journals on issues concerning health and societies.
