I qualify to teach or tutor Cultural Anthropology because of my academic training in the discipline. I majored in Anthropology while I was studying for my masters in Intercultural Studies. While working on my PhD, I also took the anthropological approach for my research and dissertation writing. Cognitively I am very confident. While at Claremont Graduate University, I took the yearlong "Practicum Workshops for Preparing Future Faculty". These workshops gave me the pedagogical training to teach in colleges and universities, where I will end up teaching when I get younger generations to take more responsibilities at my present work. I apply my anthropological knowledge almost every day in my work in multicultural settings of Southern California and in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I create curriculum and train leaders how to use them cross-culturally. Tutoring is not new to me. While doing Civil Engineering studies at the "Universite Nationale du Zaire", I used to tutor a number of High School students in maths and physics.
