As an instructor of History, I have two major goals: teach students to think in a historicalcontext – to understand the impact and importance of historical events in our current society as well as the future; to be critical writers of historical topics - to undertake research, weigh evidence, identify primary and secondary resources, make clear, concise arguments on alternative points of view...
I believe in personalized educational support tailored to a student's particular needs. I enjoy working collaboratively with students to meet their goals--taking advantage of their academic strengths and improving their areas of growth. My classroom teaching experience allows me to use proven teaching techniques beyond typical tutoring.
I target my approach based on the student but I believe that the key to understanding and retaining information about history is to make it fun and interesting. Whether you're dealing with current events or things that happened in the distant past, the key to learning is caring about what you're trying to remember.
I teach all levels of students from elementary through college. I like to help students practice research and writing and help them develop the skills that they need to succeed as historians. I am a critical reader and will grade fairly, but intently in order to help students grow as much as possible during their time with me.

My teaching philosophy is that every student learns differently and has different needs. This is why I don't believe in a one size fits all teaching method. I asses each student and create a lesson plan based on their needs and the subject matter being taught. I have found from my years of teaching that this methodology is what works best.

I am a professional tutor specializing in history, government and social science at all high school and undergraduate levels, particularly Advanced Placement World History and US History. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley in Political Science and Rhetoric with a minor in Human Rights.
I ask you what you want to learn about today and then I build a class for your interests! My method could be described as student-centered. I consider learning from everyone's interests the best way. Student's curiosity is a great way to boost the learning process and enhance the experience of learning something new every day.
I am passionate about the importance of history, current events and civic education, not only for my student's academic success, but also for the success of our society at large. Besides uncovering the wonders of history, I have helped many students, get better grades, write better papers and learn how to better express themselves.
I treat each lesson differently, approaching any assignment uniquely and comprehensively. Whether it be an scholarly work, school essay, academic research paper, or presentation, I strive to engage according to the circumstances (i.e. format, due date, topic) as well as the tutee's individual strengths and interests.
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!
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.
My goal when teaching history is to teach my students how to ask their own questions about what happened in the past. I also want my students to come out of the class with the tools needed to evaluate other people's use of historical evidence. I put a large emphasis on research methodology.
I approach teaching based on the learner. First I like to do pre-assessments to figure out how much the student knows. Based on this, I tailor my lesson plans to fit the unique needs of each student. After the lesson, I like to do a post-assessment to see the students' progress and tailor following lessons as necessary.
I try to get students to take ownership of their learning by pushing them to problem-solve for themselves. I try to guide them to the right answer by asking questions. I don't think students learn best when they are asked to regurgitate answers back to the teacher but rather when they are taught to find the clues that help them figure out the answers for themselves.
I am willing to provide lessons for any level and will tailor them to the individual. I am very flexible and understand that people learn in different ways, so the first thing we will do is develop a lesson plan that benefits you. This is not a classroom, so we have the freedom to learn in the way that makes the most sense to you.
I am a 16 year veteran teacher with a background in 7-12 Social Studies(government, US/World History, Sociology, Geography) as well as a background in Special Education(k-12). I like to have more of a background lecture that is short, then a discussion based on how it pertains to today's world. That connection makes history relevant.

Thousands of teachers can teach you history. Find private lessons closest to you.
History is who we are. Every city we live in, every nation we travel to, everything that surrounds us is the result of history giving us its lessons. We often think that history lays in the past, but this could not be farther from the truth. History lessons are the key to understanding our world, our society and where we come from, so they are important not only for students but for everyone. History teachers available are experienced and passionate about their job and their lessons can be set up according to the needs and the field of interest of each student. These teachers cover different locations and areas of expertise, so that it will not be difficult to find a match. History lessons can be paired with related topics such as Archeology and Psychology lessons; History teachers are in good company with Civics teachers or a General knowledge tutor.
