You might be interested in improving your reading and writing skills in preparation for an examination or paper submission. If you're struggling, I can help. Not only have I been there, I've made it my life's work to try and help people get through those questions. I have a master's degree in social studies education from Columbia and I've been a professional, doctorally-trained theologian and church historian for many years.

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've taught theology and religious studies to undergraduates and graduate students around the United States and West Africa. I don't see theology as a money making venture, but it is a vocation I take seriously. I've authored a new book on Catholic intellectual life in the United States from 1945-1965 and I've recently finished editing an encyclopedia of immigration that will be out in the fall of 2011. My next book will be a biography of an important figure in New York religious life in the 1920s and 1930s.
