Hello! If you need help in American History, Government, or European History, then I am the one you will want for your tutoring needs! For the past 3 years, I have worked in various middle school and high school Social Studies classrooms. I have a Bachelors Degree in History and am certified to teach History and Social Studies in Grades 7 through 12 for the State of Connecticut. I have exceptional knowledge on American History from Columbus to the present, European History, and American Government. I have worked with students of all class levels, such as in student teaching I taught Honors and College Preparatory United States History, one Reading for Success class, and one History of Crime and Violence class. As a long term substitute, I prepared high school classes for their final exams and taught the final unit. At the middle school level, I taught Grade 6 students Geography and Ancient History.
I use various teaching methods because of the various learning styles that student possess. Often, I use visuals such as PowerPoint for effective lecturing and note taking. I engage and re-engage them in question and answer sessions to assess what has been learned. When we read together using the textbook I will often utilize discussions so the student has a clear understanding of what we just read.
Does your child have a test on the causes of the Civil War coming up for example? I will help your child with test preparation whether it is for a unit, midterm, or final. I will help your child study the test material and use resources and websites to review together. I will supervise and help your child complete homework assignments, assist with major research assignments and projects, and review any content that he or she may have trouble learning.
