College Professor with 10+ years experience tutors in all Social Science areas

Methodology

I am a college History professor that has taught all social sciences ranging from 8th grade to graduate level courses. I have been tutoring as well for the last few years. I can tailor a lesson for you on a specific subject or series of events; or, I can provide tutoring over a wide range of material based on your specific needs.

Background

I have been an educator for over 12 years. The first five years I taught at a Senior High School where I tutored daily after school. I have taught for the last 7 years at the collegiate level. I have also tutored privately for students ranging in ages from 7-25 for the last few years.
