About Alicia

Hello! I am a professional marine archaeologist here in Covington, Louisiana. My day job is with the Department of Interior protecting shipwrecks and other archaeological sites in the Gulf of Mexico. I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, anthropology, and oceanography. My first tutoring job was teaching supplementary calculus and physics courses while an undergraduate at Iowa State University. When I transferred to the University of Nebraska I was an Upward Bound lead tutor running after school sessions covering all subjects for disadvantaged high school students in the program.

While I was in my PhD program in Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island, I was an instructor in the Anthropology and Geology departments. I created and taught courses in earth science, archaeology, anthropology, and advanced classes covering diverse topics such as frontier studies and the North American fur trade. I love to teach; however, my current position is primarily research and administration. I miss it and am looking forward to getting back to it as an independent evening tutor!

Engineering and oceanography are of course math-based sciences. Not only have I received instruction in basic through advanced mathematics, I use it regularly as a marine scientist. I can not only teach the subjects of math, but also it's application in other subjects as well as daily life.

I began my own French instruction in 8th grade, and took coursework from then through my undergraduate program (8 years study). I lived in Lausanne, Switzerland for a year; a city in which French is the primary language (and where I taught French speakers English!). As an American archaeologist, especially here in Louisiana, I often must use historical sources written in French. I find that I use my French skills nearly every day!

I am available to tutor any subject - math, science, and French, but also language arts and history, subjects all required in what I do and have previously taught. I can easily tailor my tutoring style to your and/or your child's needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Algebra 2

I have a degree in Engineering and graduate degrees in science. I have worked with many students over the last year on their algebra 2 courses.

Anthropology

I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in the field and a PhD in archaeological oceanography. I have taught college level coursework in anthropology at the University of Rhode Island.

Archaeology

I am a registered professional archaeologist. I have worked as a professional archaeologist for 12 years. I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in the field and a PhD in archaeological oceanography. I have taught college level coursework in archaeology at the University of Rhode Island.

Classics

I have taken undergraduate coursework (A all courses) in classical literature and Judeo-Christian literature. As an archaeologist, I have worked on classical Roman archaeological sites in the Middle East. I have edited book chapters for publication that cover classical subjects.

Public Speaking

I present regularly at professional scientific meetings on historical, and archaeological subjects. I have worked with students and colleagues to prepare for public presentations and lectures including speech editing, timing, pacing, visual aids, and presentation style.

Religion

One of the courses that I designed at taught at the University of Rhode Island is the Anthropology of Religion. It covered the cultural constructs associated with many communities' and culture's religious practices. As a professional archaeologist, I deal with religious and ritual material culture on a regular basis.
