About Samuel


Bio

University-level teaching experience, a strong record of research in scholarly subjects, training in modern and classical languages, and a life-long love of learning all contribute to making me well-qualified as a tutor, both in my areas of specialization and in more general literary skills. I am happy to tutor students of any and all levels of advancement working toward a variety of academic goals.

University-level teaching experience, a strong record of research in scholarly subjects, training in modern and classical languages, and a life-long love of learning all contribute to making me well-qualified as a tutor, both in my areas of specialization and in more general literary skills. I am happy to tutor students of any and all levels of advancement working toward a variety of academic goals.

Having recently completed my doctoral thesis, I am eager to share the experience I gained as a student researcher at a top-tier university in the United Kingdom. This may mean, for example, sessions directed toward meeting or exceeding the requirements for graduation from primary or secondary school, or those of college admissions examinations. I would be especially happy to provide support for university students taking courses in history, religion, or Middle Eastern languages.

I have master's and doctoral training in Classical Arabic and other Semitic languages, university training in Turkish as well as close to a year's residency in Turkey.

I have master's training in Religion, doctoral training in Classics and Ancient History with a concentration in Graeco-Arabic studies.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Turkish,

Turkish

At the University of Georgia, I completed two years of courses in modern Turkish, as well as a course in Ottoman Turkish. Along with this, I have resided in Turkey for a cumulative period of about a year, during which time I employed the language extensively. Furthermore, while at the University of Manchester I used my proficiency in Turkish in a professional setting to acquire Arabic manuscripts from the Suleymaniye Library in Istanbul. As a tutor I use Robert Underhill's Turkish Grammar as a textbook.

Religion

My main qualification for teaching Religion is my Master's degree in Religion from the University of Georgia. While at UGA I concentrated on Arabic and Islamic Studies while gaining greater familiarity with world religions more broadly. Due to the great breadth of possible subjects falling under this heading, I would consider possible course materials on a case-by-case basis.

Arabic

As part of my M.A. training at the University of Georgia, I studied Classical Arabic for a full two years. I then attended the University of Manchester, where I have completed the requirements for a Ph.D. in Classics and Ancient History with a concentration in Graeco-Arabic studies. The latter has involved extensive engagement with Classical Arabic translations of the Greek physicians Hippocrates and Galen as well as Arabic commentaries on their works. As a tutor, I use Wheeler Thackston's Introduction to Koranic and Classical Arabic as a textbook.
