About Austin


Bio

With experiences as a college advisor, museum professional, English teacher, and archaeologist, I bring a range of passions to tutoring. As an undergraduate, I studied classical archaeology and religious studies and took coursework in education, English, history, art history, and, of course, Classics, archaeology, and religion. While I was a student, I tutored English and participated weekly in a speech and debate organization. In the summers, I worked on an archaeological excavation project...

With experiences as a college advisor, museum professional, English teacher, and archaeologist, I bring a range of passions to tutoring. As an undergraduate, I studied classical archaeology and religious studies and took coursework in education, English, history, art history, and, of course, Classics, archaeology, and religion. While I was a student, I tutored English and participated weekly in a speech and debate organization. In the summers, I worked on an archaeological excavation project in Israel and taught at a debate program in China.

Currently, I work at a small museum in New York researching ancient Greek coins. After university, I lived for two years in what’s now called North Macedonia with the US Peace Corps in their education sector. In addition to teaching, I hosted a number of summer camps, after-school programs, and individualized tutoring sessions. After Peace Corps, I advised students at several CUNY colleges around New York and at Ithaca College in one-on-one mentoring sessions on topics of career planning, course preparation, and financial aid.

I’m excited about getting others excited about ideas. Whether you’re doing great in a class and want to be excellent or doing poorly and need support to stay afloat, I aim to help you set goals and help you reach them.

Art History

Currently, I work at a small museum with ancient Greek artifacts. Additionally I design and give tours at the Brooklyn Museum through the education department's Art, Research, and Teaching program. Art history, like archaeology, allows us to view the past through different (and sometimes even radically different!) lights. I have a degree in classical archaeology.

For a year, I worked as a career advisor for college students ages 17-43. From this experience, I gained key insight into career planning and development, especially for high school and college students. Together we can: write your initial resume, develop resume bullet points, strategize for short-term and long-term career development, find and apply to jobs and internships, and engage with services such as job fairs and LinkedIn.

Every Monday night for all four years of my undergraduate studies, I participated in a speech and debate organization. While a member, I gave speeches on a range of topics, both prepared and extemporary. In addition, I completed coursework in English and rhetoric. We can work on speechwriting, tools for preparing to speak publicly, and practice.

History

Anthropology,

Anthropology

Although my background is primarily in archaeology--a subset of anthropology focused on the material culture of communities from the past--I am also versed in broader extrapolations of the discipline, including cultural and social anthropology and ethnography. I studied classical archaeology and religion as an undergraduate and now currently work with archaeological material at a small museum in Manhattan. For three field seasons, I worked on the Huqoq Excavation Project in Israel's Galilee, researching ancient mosaics and mosaic installation-techniques. I was trained in archaeological field methods and theories, including field survey and stratigraphic excavation, on site and in the classroom. I took courses including such titles as: "Archaeological Field School," "Field Methods" "Archaeological Fundamentals," "Second Temple Period Archaeology," Roman Archaeology" "Greek Archaeology," "Classical Greek Art," "Archaeology of Early Greece", "Synagogue Archaeology," and "Egyptian Archaeology," among others. I now work with Hellenistic period coinages.

Bible Studies,

Bible Studies

Studying classical archaeology and religion, I focused my interests in various topics related to the Bible. This included biblical texts themselves, as well as the material culture of the regions that first produced, constructed understandings of, and interpreted the books in Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. I took courses including such titles as: "Early Judaism," "Archaeology of Israel," "What is Scripture?," "Koine Greek," "Varieties of Early Christianity," "New Testament archaeology," and "Greco-Roman Influence in Christianity," among others.
Classics,

Classics

I studied classical archaeology and religion as an undergraduate and now currently work with ancient Greek archaeological material at a small museum in Manhattan. I completed coursework in Roman and Greek archaeology, religion, history, and languages--as well as in topics related to the ancient Mediterranean more broadly. For three field seasons, I worked on the Huqoq Excavation Project in Israel's Galilee, researching Late Roman, early Byzantine mosaics and mosaic installation-techniques. I was trained in archaeological field methods and theories, including field survey and stratigraphic excavation, on site and in the classroom. I took courses including such titles as: "Greek," "Latin," "Roman Archaeology," "Greek Archaeology," "Classical Greek Art," "Archaeology of Early Greece", "Synagogue Archaeology," and "Egyptian Archaeology," among others.
Religion,

Religion

Studying classical archaeology and religion, I focused my interests in various topics related to both the general study of religion as well as the religions of the ancient Mediterranean. I took courses primarily related to Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and Greco-Roman religions, but I also studied various methodological and theoretical approaches to religion. With an interest in archaeology, I often take an anthropological approach to studying the material cultures of religious communities. More specific topics I have studied include: Greco-Roman religions, religions in the United States, African American religious practices, Mary in the Christian tradition, and ancient Jewish religious spaces, among others.
