I received my Bachelor's degree in History from Cal Poly Pomona in 1989. I also have two Master's degrees in History, the first from Cal State Los Angeles, and the second which was obtained from the University of California, Santa Cruz, as part of my doctoral studies. My specialty is American History and Modern European History, and I have a strong background in American Religions and Gender History.
I have taught numerous history courses at the university level, in addition to tutoring small groups of students during my time at Cal State Los Angeles. This experience has provided me with a fine understanding both of what is expected of High School students, and to best prepare them for the challenges that will face them.
I have a deep love of history, and a desire to help others understand and appreciate the importance that a solid understanding of history can provide for living in the present. As someone who once struggled with academics in High School, I look to encourage my students and provide them with confidence in their own abilities to succeed.
I have a great deal of experience with setting up computer systems, and the use of the major operating systems – Windows, Mac and Linux. I can teach you how to set up your system in a way that best suits your needs and abilities, and to help you overcome any anxieties you might have about using computers. I understand that computers can be a bit intimidating for a new user, and I can help you discover how overcome any doubts that you might have about your abilities, and how to develop the skills to gradually increase your familiarity and comfort in using your computer.
For educational purposes, computers are one of the most valuable tools to understand. Used for both research and writing, a basic understanding of computers and how they can help you achiever your goals is very necessary for academic success, and I can help you develop the skills needed maximize your skills as a computer user.
