Personal Description:

My name is Chris . I am 23 years old and moved to St Andrews, Fife, with my wife Katie Rae in September 2012. I am originally from a small town in Tennessee, USA. I began an MLitt at St Andrews just a few months ago in Biblical Languages and Literature and I received my BA in Pastoral Ministry with a Minor in Biblical Languages from Lee University in southeast Tennessee in May 2012. I published my first book in late 2011 with Westbow Press, which was followed by many interviews both local and national. I love to write, I love to read, and I love athletics. I am a very energetic and excitable person that, I think at least, can prove to be some fun in the midst of my love for education.

Tutoring Experience:

As noted above, I have had, at this point, four years of experience working with the ancient Greek language. In the final year of my BA, I was a tutor and teacher's aid at Lee University. Aside from this, I have no "technical" teaching experience, other than that which I received while being on staff at various churches. Therefore, I actually have had some experience in terms of pedagogical training in how to deal with students, even though the subject matter was not precisely what I am wanting to tutor on now.

Tutoring Approach:

The parent or student who is reading this description and seeking out a tutor will likely have noticed my religious background and the religious affiliations that my proposed subjects have, e.g. Greek & religious studies; however, if this is not what someone is looking for I am quite happy to teach ancient Greek as merely a language through which we have received Aristotle, Plato, Homer, and all manner of other classical writers. I love the Greek language as I love ancient history, thus, if someone wants to learn to read the Greek New Testament or classical Greek authors I am happy to oblige either interest. As noted, a student interested in religious studies will also find that I am versed in this field as well. Further, because of my love for writing and my work on a book published just last year, I also enjoy the field of English composition, poetry, etc. Regarding my approach, if Greek, depending on how far along the student is in the language, I will either require and work on alphabetical and vocabularic memorization, discussion of syntax, or larger "sense analysis" of pericopes in a Greek author. I am happy to start wherever is appropriate, however, as fits the needs of each individual student. With Religious Studies, the field itself is broad and I would require direction as to the student's interest, though I am immensely interested and invested in the field. I might should perhaps note that I am able to tutor in Hebrew language as well, if this is desired. With English, I would be happy to critique the papers that a student has written for other classes so as to better his/her writing skills; or, if need be, I will assign short projects so as to provide samples for the student and myself to work through. With English, my main concerns will be with basic grammar, syntax, and logical coherence of thought over the span of the piece of writing.
