History aficionado, desiring to educate and share a wide variety of topics!

Methodology

My passion is educating others in a way that is relevant to them: helping students make connections and give them the skills and desire to understand how interconnected our collective history and geography are to us all! I like to make the ancient and obscure relevant to the present, it is the best way to understand the world around us!

Background

I have been a student of history since a very young age, majoring in both History and Geography in college. Since I was in college, I tutored classmates and younger students, eventually leading group education sessions. I have tutored dozens of students in the 9 years since graduation, helping them understand the context of what they are learning, convey their ideas through essays and ultimately improve their grades.
