The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) (Anthropology)
I've always loved teaching--when I was 16 I started working at a camp where I taught canoeing, sports, music, arts & crafts, and archery for four summers. Working with campers one-on-one and seeing their eyes light up when they understood concepts or projects was the greatest part! Sometimes folks just need a little personalized attention to realize that they could do it all along. Although I have no formal tutoring experience, I was always the student that classmates went to when they needed to understand an assignment or concept in a class.
I love reading, and I've had a lifelong love for history--in fact, I've been able to name all the presidents since I was 7! This is probably what drew me to archaeology--I spent my last semester at TCNJ studying at Independence Hall's archaeology lab in Philadelphia and digging nearby at a historic house in Ewing, NJ. I've always loved the sciences, too--I took plant science and geology in college just for fun! I've excelled in courses on human biology and evolution, too. The combination of science and history in my degree was very important!
I had a self-designed major in anthropology which focused on biological anthropology and archaeology. I worked on two excavations in archaeology, and I've taken several biology and anatomy courses through high school and college. I started out my college career majoring in psychology and sociology, and these were also incorporated into my self-designed major. I got no lower than a B in all the courses relevant to my major.
If it's memorizing all the dates in history or understanding evolutionary theory, I've got you covered. If you need help in any area: writing, history, biology, any of the behavioral sciences--please email me. I'm happy to help!

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.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology that was self-designed. I chose 12 courses that included cultural and physical/biological anthropology, linguistics, and archaeology for my major and completed them all with no lower than a in each course.
My self-designed major focused on archaeology--I have taken two field schools (one in Alaska, June 2014 and one in spring 2015 in Ewing, NJ) and I completed a 90-hour internship at the Independence Archaeology Lab in Philadelphia. I have taken two theory-based courses on archaeology as well and got a B+ in each.
