About Kristine

I am a current graduate student at Texas Tech pursuing my MA in Classics. I study both ancient Greek and Latin, but my main focus is in archaeology. I was awarded the best graduate student from my department this year. While in undergrad, I received my BA in Classics but have taken classes in Sociology/Anthropology, Art History, Geology, History, and several others.

I believe the most important aspect of teaching is mentor-ship. Students should always feel like they matter in the classroom and that they are being heard. Thus, this is the foundation of my teaching method. While I am strict in terms of preparation and attention, it should be a relaxed environment where the student is comfortable.

During my undergraduate career, I was a Greek and Latin tutor for my department. I have also done tutoring as part of my volunteer work. Currently I am a teaching assistant in the Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures Department at TTU, so I regularly meet with students to review as well as guest lecture in my classes. I love when students get excited about what they learn and are able to approach the material through a critical framework.

My research focus in archaeology and I have worked on several excavations. I also use anthropological and sociological theories in my research.

I have taken Ancient Greek for five years. I have studied Homeric, Attic, and Ionic Greek through translating Homer through Hellenistic works.

Please contact me if you have any questions! My schedule is very flexible.

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.

Archaeology

My current research is about Late Bronze Age archaeology. Besides doing research, I have taken archaeology classes. I have also worked on the Azoria Project on Crete and will be participating in two excavations this summer in Greece.

Classics

I received my BA in Classics and am currently pursuing my MA. I have taken five years of Classics classes as well as attended two programs. My focus is Bronze Age to Hellenistic Greek history; however, I am also qualified to teach Roman history.
