I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England.  And I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours.

I've been captivated by ancient Egypt since I was 10 years old.  And I feel it's my destiny to share my enthusiasm for and expertise on this beautiful and brilliant 5000-year-old civilization with all of you.  I hope to see you soon for a class.  I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn.  And, please, if you like, call me Ms. Sennuwy - my chosen ancient Egyptian name.
Homework Offered

Students do not need any extra materials. I will send files before and after the class that will be used during the class and afterward for the student's own research, if desired.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The only sensitive information is that most ancient Egyptian art shows some nudity.
I will be referring to many different websites that feature information on class status in ancient Egypt.  And I welcome hearing suggestions from students regarding various resources that I may not know about.
