I am an experienced college professor and secondary teacher. I have a Baccalaureate in History, and a Master's and Doctorate in Sociology. I hold a current California teaching credential in Social Science and Earth Science.
I have taught sociology, history, and political science at the college level, social studies, history, and earth science at the middle school and high school levels. I have a strong background in science/ecology as well as social science.
I am an empathic, thorough, challenging teacher. I take a diagnostic approach to tutoring. In addition to giving lessons in content areas, I attempt to assess what deficiencies lead the student to seek tutoring in the first place. Once the deficiencies are identified, the student with the tutor's guidance can work at ameliorating those deficiencies systematically.
I have experience teaching and tutoring students of all ages and academic levels. I am extremely energetic and committed, and will work to teach successfully any subject within my areas to any student.
