Mississippi State University (Anthropology)
Hi! I'm Kenneth, I live in Ridgeland, MS and I'm working on my second degree at Holmes Community College! My first degree is from Mississippi State University in Anthropology, concentrating my courses in Human Skeletal Anatomy, Biological Anthropology, Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology. I achieved a minor in History with those courses usually concerning Western History. From there I worked for several years as an Archaeologist and from time to time a Museum Cataloger. I am now back in MS to get my Technical degree in Funeral Service Technologies, and maybe even lay the path for me to do Med school later. I am also a member in the Lambda Alpha Anthropological Honor Society and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
My experience with tutoring goes back to high school having to tutor a peer in algebra twice a week, roughly one to three hours a session for about 2 years. I also help out my classmates understand our material, and try to put it into ways that may help them understand, this was with my last degree and this one. I do hope to add more to my resume here in the coming months.
I tend to be fairly laid back and patient, and will help you get through your problems with the subject material. I will do what I can to help you learn the selected material!
I'm available in the evenings and afternoons and prefer to meet up in a normally quiet public location (coffee shop/ Library, etc). My schedule is extremely flexible at the moment, but if that changes I will update! I only require a 5 hour cancellation notice, and would prefer you message me about what we will be covering before we meet!
My class schedule (to work around)
Monday: 8am-2pm Tuesday: 9:30 to 11 Wednesday*: 8am to 2, and then Thursday from 9:30 to 3:00.
*I have clinicals on wednesday so times may change
I originally took Statistics in college, obtained mastery of the material, and then taught myself more for my first degree. I got very used to having to understand complicated statistics from the academic papers I was having to read at the time.
I have my degree in Biological Anthropology, graduating with a 3.25 from Ms, with my major GPA being 3.8. I had to take several courses on human genetics, variation, evolution, disease, and anatomy. I have a very good understanding of anatomy from this. I also had to take archaeology courses, and worked in the field for 3 years as a field technician. during my time at state, I took geology, and practiced it while working as an archaeologist. I worked in the lab for several years strengthening these foundations. I am also furthering my science knowledge at Holmes, taking more anatomy, chemistry, and biology courses (most of them to strengthen/broaden my understanding).
Feel free to send me a message anytime, and I'll reply as soon as possible! The message can be concerning anything you want to know or to schedule me as a tutor! Hi!

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.
