I am a college student in the process of relocating to the Jonesboro area. I just obtained my Associates of Arts degree from Arkansas State University - Mountain Home, where I did quite a bit of volunteer tutoring and lead study sessions during Finals week. I have also been teaching classes for the U.S. Army for 14 years.

I am available for tutoring in History subjects for general education requirements at the college level and for the same subjects at the high school level. Study sessions will be held at the home of the student or at the college library (preferred.) My style is based upon explaining the subject material at the level of the student, with emphasis on mnemonic association for information recall and test preparation. I have experience assisting students with test-taking anxiety to gain comfort with standard test formats.

I will be available to begin tutoring sessions after June 15th, 2010. Feel free to schedule tutoring in advance of this date. All tutoring needs to be scheduled at least 1 week in advance of our first session.

Math:
Algebra 1, Algebra 2
History:
American History, European History, Geography, Government & Politics, World History
Homeschool:
Algebra 1, Algebra 2
