My undergraduate degree is in History and my graduate degree is in Education. I have taught High School social studies in Arizona and had the privilege to teach Algebra and Geometry in Hawaii.

When teaching math, I have found that repetition and relation work best. Repetition helps students to remember the many concepts required to understand math. Relating those concepts to real life scenarios helps make the content relevant, interesting, and answers the question "Why do I have to know this?"

Teaching history is similar. Relate the material to current events and real life situations and students will understand. And every part of history can be related.

Math:
Algebra 1, Geometry, Prealgebra
History:
American History, Government & Politics
Homeschool:
Algebra 1, Geometry, Prealgebra
