I am a published anthropologist with an MS in forensic anthropology. I have practical and theoretical experience in forensic anthropology, physical anthropology, linguistic anthropology, bioarchaeology, Norse archaeology, crime scene processing, autopsies and more. I have specific expertise in skeletal trauma, especially skeletal gunshot trauma.
I've worked at the Smithsonian with well-known forensic anthropologists and have assisted on casework with anthropologists in Massachusetts. I have experience with public speaking and presentations and publications in academic journals. I know a lot about the human skeleton, so get your Bones questions ready!
I am well traveled and familiar with several different cultures including Danish, Spanish, Ecuadorian, Ghanaian (specifically the Ashanti), Polish, Greenlandic, and Czech. I speak Danish and Spanish well and have some knowledge of Polish and Twi (of the Ashanti group). I am a published anthropologist with an MS in forensic anthropology. I have practical and theoretical experience in forensic anthropology, physical anthropology, linguistic anthropology, bioarchaeology, Norse archaeology, crime scene processing, autopsies and 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.
I have a BA in anthropology and archaeology and an MS in forensic anthropology. I have published papers on topics in physical anthropology and have completed an undergraduate thesis in linguistic anthropology and a master's thesis in forensic anthropology. I have worked as a teaching assistant for a graduate level course in forensic anthropology, and I have teaching experience in other areas as well. I believe in the four field approach to anthropology and I believe that emphasis on theory as well as on practical experience is important. I will use my extensive knowledge in all areas of anthropology to provide students with the guidance, discussion, and/or critique they need to succeed as anthropology students on any level.
I have a BA in anthropology and archaeology, and an MS in forensic anthropology. Included in these degrees were intensive hands-on courses in archaeology, including Caribbean archaeology, Norse archaeology, forensic archaeology, and bioarchaeology. I attended a field school in Barbuda in the Caribbean where I learned techniques in surveying, excavating, planning, and artifact sorting. I used these skills to be invited to a three month field season in Greenland in 2010, and I was invited back for more projects in Greenland in 2012. My graduate course work also required hands-on experience at our school's outdoor decomposition facility where we spent one month working on different excavation projects, which required the use of various archaeological techniques.
