I have a BA in cultural anthropology, an MA in social science, and a PhD in political anthropology. I teach and have taught at a wide variety of private, community, and state colleges and universities in Massachusetts and elsewhere, including the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Fitchburg State University, Greenfield Community College, and many others. I teach mostly sociology, along with cultural anthropology, and have also taught history, courses on globalization and the environment, and on psychology.
I really enjoy teaching as well as coaching and assisting students, to; grasp course lecture materials, for exam preparation, and on their writing assignments and research papers. In addition to teaching classes averaging 25 students, I break my classes up into discussion and other groups, and really enjoy engaging with students on a one-on-one basis.
The many courses I have taught in sociology, cultural anthropology, political science, on globalization, the environment, and sustainability, and comparative world history. I also stress an interdisciplinary approach that emphasizes the ability to think critically and come up with innovative solutions.
Also my fieldwork and research, citizen participation and community relations experience.
I strongly encourage students to contact me to learn more about my qualifications and training to be their tutor and to schedule lessons.

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.

I am highly qualified to tutor this subject based on my PhD, MA, and BA in cultural anthropology, my extensive teaching of anthropology at a variety of colleges and universities, my anthropological fieldwork, and publications.
In addition to lecturing and stimulating class discussion on anthropology, I divide the class up into discussion groups and for fieldwork exercises outside of class.
I also enjoy mentoring and coaching students on their class presentations, research papers, and extra credit projects.
So I am very comfortable both teaching anthropology and working with students on a one-to-one basis.
