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.

Bible Studies

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.

Classics

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.
