About Adrian

I have always enjoyed studying the humanities and social sciences and consider myself a lifelong learner. I received my Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Virginia, a Master of Arts in Christian Studies from Duke University, and a second Master of Arts in Christian Ministry from Liberty University. I am currently working on my dissertation as a PhD candidate in Transformative Studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I also work as a business development director for a research & development company located near RTP.

I taught theology at a private school in Durham, published a book about the American Dream in 2013, looking at this topic through the lenses of history, religion, and sociology, and am working on several articles that will be published in peer-reviewed journals. Similarly, I have experience teaching as a teaching assistant for my graduate program, where I taught courses in film studies and creativity. I also am an adjunct professor with the Emergent Studies Institute, where I teach on topics including cultural studies, history, creative inquiry, and philosophy, to name a few.

In order to complete these programs and endeavors, I had to dedicate myself to academic study. I understand how hard work and devotion can advance one in ways never imagined. One of my goals is to challenge the student, but in a way in which the student loves to learn and is able to relate to the content, not merely to regurgitate information to pass an exam, etc.

I am personable, open to feedback, and will go out of my way to work with families in order to ensure that the process is benefiting the student.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
