My teaching methodology is student centered. I believe a student learns best when he or she is performing an application. I use activities and resources that include primary and secondary sources, graphic organizers, games, sorts, music, video, political cartoons, and poetry.
My teaching methodology revolves around finding similarities in the past and applying it how it affects our lives today in a manner that is engaging to the student. In addition, my curriculum focuses on developing critical thinking as it is vital not only to the study of history but to living in an age of distraction and misinformation.
I am very hands on when working with students. I make every effort to create lessons that will be engaging and fun for each of the students that I am working with. Whatever the subject areas that we are working on it is important to me that I am ensuring that my student feels safe, secure and knows that I am proud of the efforts that they are making and they are working toward mastery.

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.
My technique is simple in nature and depth in practice. I want to find out what makes your learning yours due to an individualized approach that benefits the individual and the class when appropriate. I have have heard from previous students that they each got something different than one another.
I am an experienced educator with a master's degree in Communication Arts. I believe in instructing students about current events and how government and media works by immersing themselves in the various types of traditional and new media, and by using classroom and online methods to explore, identify, and understand the world around us.
I do not have a set methodology because teaching is not one-size-fits-all. I begin by finding which approaches work best for each student. For example, some visual learners respond best to flashcards while other visual learners need to write or draw. Auditory learners may need lecture-type teaching while other auditory learners prefer video or acting-out concepts.
Whatever learning technique works for you, I can accommodate you for sure! I prefer using visual aids and real-life examples to help you understand what's being taught. I also believe that it is possible to learn together, I'm not brighter than you.
My method varies based on class and needs of the students
I am passionate about social studies and teaching, and bring to life the subjects that I teach or tutor. My best attribute is my adaptability- my ability to play to every student's strengths and interests to formulate a lesson that will inspire them to view and learn about their studies in a way they may not have previously.
I enjoy inquiry based learning. By posing the learner a question, analyzing facts and sources, the learner can better process the topic. I structure lessons with review/warm ups, then content, and wrapping up with a meaningful ending. I am a well organized teacher that will be sure to monitor progress and check for understanding.
My approach to teaching is to meet each student where he or she is within their understanding of both the content and the student's own understanding of the learning process. Understanding each student's learning processes is my starting point, followed by goal setting.

In Turkey, one definition of who is a teacher, is “One who leads you from the darkness to the light – the darkness of ignorance, light of understanding.” This is a poetic expression of the inner wish of every true teacher – it is my wish.
I am a "forty something" teacher living in the Pittsburgh, PA area with nearly 20 years experience as a teacher. I will give lessons to whoever asks if I can meet the topic content that they seek.

Students often struggle with the memory parts of history. It is my job to make connections between the past and the present, bridging that gap. Using proper citation and research can also be a challenge that I help students overcome.
I approach each topic by first explaining the material, then using tools to help the student retain the information (i.e. flashcards, games). The goal is to eventually have the student explain the material to me without assistance. If one can explain the material then that person has demonstrated a firm understanding of the subject matter.
I approach each topic by learning how a student best learns a subject and how to make even the hardest subject more easily accomplished and do everything I can to help him/her learn as much as possible in a short period of time.
I am willing to give lessons to any age group. I specialize in U.S. History and civics (states, capitals, gov't structure) but I am willing to teach just about anything. I take an informal approach to teaching and try to make things fun. I love to integrate technology into my teaching and will use comics and video games to teach lessons (Fallout 4 and Boston are my favorite!).
I hold a master's degree in government with a concentration in political theory. I have taught courses ranging from the foundations of American government, American public policy with a focus on social justice, and the history of Western political thought. My pedagogy is based on rigor, research, and real world application.
My teaching method is to provide students with different options and approaches to learning and allow them to see what works best for them. I enjoy giving students a chance to try something on their on to see where I can be of specific help.
I have a history degree and teach like I was taught: relate history to current events. Show how history is important because it repeats itself. I try to make it as interesting/relevant as possible.
