Archaeologist with a Master's Degree Offering Assistance with Humanities and Social Sciences for all Ages

Methodology

I will approach each student and each topic individually to determine an individualized plan to help each student succeed. I can work with students virtually or in person (within the greater New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas in Louisiana).

Background

I am a recent master's graduate in Archaeology. I also have my BA in anthropology and art history. As a high school student, I successfully completed nine AP classes and received a year's worth of college credit. I would love to help others do the same! I would also be happy to proofread and provide feedback on papers at the middle school through university levels.
