Right off the bat, let me tell you that teaching is my passion. As an undergraduate I studied history, anthropology and literature, but was very unsure what I wanted to do afterward. I just completed my MA degree, and for the past three years have worked as a teaching assistant for various history and women's studies courses. I love it. My degree is in comparative European religious history, and I fully plan on going forward for my PhD in religious history of the American South. I have experience with American, World, and European history as well as various forms of literature (British, American, Gothic, World, Religious). With my BA I completed a Great Works Certificate, for which I took many classes covering the Classics, and it was incredibly rewarding. If you want to know more about my academic and teaching background, feel free to ask!
In my spare time I'm an avid reader, anything from non-fiction history books (which I don't even just read for class anymore, now it's for fun!) to classic literature, to Star Wars. I am a firm believer, also, that the popular culture that teenage students enjoy(video games, movies, books etc.) are strong tools in helping them not only with understanding the world of today, but also their subjects in school. My partner currently teaches his own History 102 class at UNLV using films, books, and art to show the shaping of American culture. Each student has a different way of learning, and if we as instructors can use exciting ways to get and keep them interested, then we are truly doing our jobs.
I think I have rambled enough, and of course if you wish to know more, just let me know! I love working with students, and I look forward to hearing from you! Hello!

Hailey was awesome. She has such a confident way about her. She made me feel so comfortable. She was patient and informative. I learned so much from her. Her teaching ability is 5 star!! She did an incredible job.
Hailey gave me phenomenal advice to help with my writing. She gave me tricks and tools that will help me not only with the writing portion on the GRE but with my writing for the rest of my career. Hailey is very kind, energetic and full of great knowledge. I highly recommend her.
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.
My field of Anthropology is mainly cultural. My background is in folklore and mythology.
The importance of this, to me, is giving students the ability to look through a lens of cultural anthropology when studying for example history, and vice versa.
For cultural Anthropology, students should be learning the approaches to studying human behavior (emic vs. etic), what it means to use "thick description", etc. Most importantly, of course, understanding the value of learning about other cultures.
The respective histories of the major world religions, for example those that are Abrahamic religions: Islam, Christianity, Judaism.
Also, the histories of other religions as well, past and present:
-polytheistic religions of antiquity
-modern Wicca and other pagan movements
-African slave religion such as Obeah, Voo Doo, and Hoo Doo
This is the major part of my field, and I have extensive experience researching a majority of these.
