About Evan

I've been teaching in some form or another for 12 years, grades 4 through 12. Currently, I'm a professor at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Seminary in Boston, KY, where I give history classes to all level seminarians one day a week. I also supply research models/guidance for students working on undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate degrees.

In the past I have taught mainly in private schools in Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky and in India (as a volunteer for two school years). I enjoy making a difference in people's lives and assisting them in gaining the skills and confidence they need to expand their opportunities and better their chances for success. I believe firmly that some of the most formative years for children are the "middle school" years--a time when the mind is fertile and the will is eager--but also that anytime a student (no matter what age) seeks alternative educational assistance it is a pivotal moment in that student's career. Such moments need to be taken advantage of and optimized.

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.

Classics

I have 6 years of experience teaching the Classics to grades 6 through 12. I am familiar with the works of Plato and Aristotle, the Socratic method, the histories of Herodotus and Plutarch, the epic poems of Homer and Virgil, and the scientific, artistic and philosophical merits of the major Classical figures. I understand, appreciate, and can convey the importance of the Classics as a fundamental foundation for Western thought.
