My favorite part of teaching and tutoring is the opportunity to share my love of learning with a student; to dig into the real subject behind the words we are studying--the human meanings of academics. I have studied history, sociology, and anthropology over the years, and I would love to share what I know with you. But I also believe there is always something else worth exploring, and I would love to continue this journey of learning with you!
I took a graduate seminar on teaching, and have acted as an assistant teacher at the graduate level for two years. During that time, I frequently tutored individual students and small groups. I developed curriculum for small and large classes, and helped individual students to understand the curriculum through the tutoring I did during that time. Although my teaching experience has been primarily at the college level, I have also enjoyed tutoring my young cousins (ages 6-12), and have had some opportunity to help students learn in a variety of subject areas during a year of substitute teaching at the middle and high school levels.
One of my fields of interest is anthropology. I have taken graduate and undergraduate classes related to this field (a total of 30 credit hours), and I have continued reading about the theory and methodology of anthropology for my own interest.
My BA was in history, and my MA was in the sociology of religion. My time in college exposed me to many areas of study, including: American history (immigration, race, and the history of the south), Ancient history (Greece, Rome, and classic readings from this time), and European history (Medieval and French history).
Because of my educational background, I have also become very familiar with the study of religion. I am most knowledgeable about the development of religion in the United States, but have also studied religion in Latin America, Europe, and Africa.

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.
