What is your typical process for working with a new student?

It is helpful to get to know students so I can understand their goals and circumstances. I prefer to have a consoltation–in person, online, or over the phone–to determine the best course forward. After this, we can have agreed upon meetings for teaching and help. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Temple University in Philadelphia, where I also minored in Political Science. More recently, I completed a Master of Divinity from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. Currently, I am working on a Master of Theology from Covenant Theological Seminary where my research focuses in the New Testament.
