About Jade

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).

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Anthropology

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.

Archaeology

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.
