History Major at the University of Pittsburgh. WIll help with general history questions and topics.

Methodology

My teaching method is storytelling based. History is full of stories (it's in the word) and I have found this is the easiest way to learn history. Dates are important but when it comes down to it memorizing them will come with time.

Background

Sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh. Been a history buff for many years and did some tutoring in high school. Helped students pass papers, quizzes, midterms, and finals. I've taken many courses on history and I know a lot about good resources for research as well as good ways to study historical topics that are easy to understand and can be a bit fun.
