My name is Allan G. I am a passionate educator of all kinds of ages and learning types who has expertise in language (Greek, Latin, and beginning Hebrew), literature, and religion. I hold a Ph.D. in Theology from Fordham University. I am an experienced college professor and online educator as well as an experienced youth mentor. I have taught and tutored everything from church bible studies to graduate courses in ancient Greek. I have worked with youth groups and with elderly learning groups - and I am passionate about sharing my expertise across all kinds of educational levels, from the beginner to advanced students. I can help with language study (including test prep), composition, literature, and ancient history - but theology and biblical studies is my specialization.
I hold myself and my students to a standard of responsibility to our subject, so that our mutual interests can fuel our engagement with the subject. I attempt to mold our meetings around the needs of my students, adapting to different learning styles and responding creatively to difficult areas or troublesome topics.
I hope to develop long term tutoring relationships so that I can help students grow over time, and allow the skills that we discuss impact on other areas of learning - both in and out of school. I am free to travel locally, and prefer meeting in public places like coffee shops that lend a casual and stimulating environment for our lessons, and I can travel locally to convenient areas for the student. I have an understanding cancellation policy and hope to develop a cordial relationship with students that allows for flexibility.
I look forward to learning with you, and helping you enrich your mind and understand the world in new ways! My name is Allan G. I am a passionate educator of all kinds of ages and learning types who has expertise in language (Greek, Latin, and beginning … Read more

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.
