I attended a Christian private school, which required 24 hours of college-level Bible classes. Additionally, I have taught Sunday School classes for adults and teens. One of my scholarly interests is biblical hermeneutics. I also have a working knowledge of New Testament Greek.
I have had extensive university coursework in the Classics, in addition to teaching them utilizing the Socratic Method, also at the university level.
I am also able to read and translate Greek, including the Attic and the Koine dialects; further, I am comfortable reading and translating Latin, especially poetry, including the epic mode.
I have taught Dante, Homer, Ovid, Aeschylus, Shakespeare, Quixote, and many later works designated as classical.
