History does not have to be boring, Writing does not have to be a chore, and learning can be a very rewarding experience. I love to teach and get great joy from seeing my students develop and grow in their subjects. I have a BA from California State University and Ashford University in History and a Master's Degree in Education from Ashford. I am currently working to complete my Credentialing Program. My focus in the classroom is on the student as an individual, and on the use of technology in education.
My love of History is lifelong and I look at my research and study of it like an adventure, with new and exciting discoveries around every corner. I can help you develop an appreciation for History as well. I can help you see that the stories and people that make us who we are today are as exciting and relevant as any adventure you see in Movies or TV, that through the study and research of history you will be better prepared to make the choices that will be before you in the future.
I am currently teaching Creative Writing, and love the process of writing. Developing those skills as well as verbal communication skills can become your greatest tools in education and life. If you need help understanding the past and decoding the work before you, let me be your partner on your adventure; I guarantee you will develop an appreciation and understanding of the story that is us.
From an Early age I have had a love for the the study of History. Growing up near the Southern U.S. I was always surrounded by rich history and a desire to learn more. I graduated with a BS in History and later received a Masters in Education with the goal of helping others understand and love the rich and colorful History of this great country we live in. Since completing my Masters I have worked as a tutor in both History and Writing, making the study of History enjoyable and the research and writing of the past am adventure rather than a chore.
I am a life long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I completed 4 years of Seminary (a religious studies program offered through the church for high school students). Following High School, I served as a missionary for two years for the LDS church, teaching from the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon. In my college career, I completed 3 courses in religious study and history.
I am currently serving as a Sunday School teacher as well as Youth leader in my local congregation.
After obtaining my BA in History, and then my Master's Degree in Education, I began my certification program for teaching in the State of California.
I have worked for the past 4 years in many different classrooms, both public and private schools.
I am currently working for Ohlone Community College as an instructor in the community outreach after school and summer program. We work with k-12th grade students in all subjects.
I substitute in elementary classrooms in my local school district.
In 2012, I started tutoring that focuses on ESL language arts, creative writing, SAT/ACT/AP test prep as well as homework help and study skills.
The majority of my students currently are K-6th grade.
I have worked for the past twenty years with both youth and adults in schools, sports teams, and organizations. As a writing tutor as well as a leadership adviser. Public Speaking is about leadership and information. Confidence comes in time as practice and method are tested and skills are developed. I can help you be comfortable and confident developing skills needed to present your information in a clear manner.
World History is an exciting and dynamic subject. In World History we explore and investigate the development of human society and cultures from their earliest beginnings, throughout time , until today. In World History we explore different cultures and beliefs, understanding the influence that each has on the other an how they have developed over time. By using anthropology and archaeology , we piece together a wonderful puzzle of who we are. World History allows us a place to study and understand the ever changing geopolitical environment that we live in and how as societies and cultures we must learn from our past in order to secure a better and brighter future.
Writing does not have to be a chore for your student, Writing is a skill that will benefit and enrich any student's education for their entire lives. As a student myself and now as a teacher I have grown to love the writing process and find it a great way to explore the world around me and create new worlds never before seen. I have many years of experience working with students of all grade levels and abilities. I have a BA in History and a Master's in Education, I am currently working to obtain my credentials and working in private and public school settings.
