About BG

About BG
This really is about you & you learning, not me. I love helping people learn - my last name even means "one who teaches!" My goal is to help you succeed - whether it's in editing a paper or helping you understand subjects from religion/ Biblical studies to government (US & comparative), political science/ theory, algebra or various philosophy subjects. I get bored easily so I promise I'll try to keep it as engaging as possible! I've lived in the DC area, Dallas, London, England, Phoenix and now in the Greensboro area, NC.
