Hello there. I am a recent college graduate with a BA in History and Education. I work as a substitute teacher in six districts in Fairfield County, CT. In my spare time, when I am not teaching, I like to help out students in getting a little extra boost in school.

While I am certified in History, I have a wide range of interests in learning. These include philosophy, religion, art history. I would love to have a chance to help you and your children out in achieving success in school.

When I am not teaching or tutoring, I like to spend my time reading books, swimming, hiking, kayaking, both seeing Broadway musicals as well as acting in them.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I received my BA in History at Manhattanville College in 2011. In addition to my degree, I continue to study American History as a graduate student on this fascinating subject.

Art History

When I graduated from college, I received a minor in art history. I have a particular love of this subject and I was fortunate enough to have a great aptitude for the subject. For three years, I spent my spring break trips in Italy, Venice, Rome and Tuscany respectively. The area of art history that I am very proficient in is the art of the Early and High Renaissance. I believe that while a student can learn about art from a textbook or the internet, they must attend a museum to see the real impact of art to have a full and meaningful experience.

Classics

My interest in the Greek and Roman Classics goes all the way back to 6th Grade History when I first studied Ancient Greece. Since then, I have read widely in Greek philosophy (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) and Roman History (Livy, Tacitus). One of my great joys in teaching the classics has been introducing children to the epic poetry of Homer and Virgil. I have recently started teaching this subject in school.

English

I'm currently working on gaining a BA in English in the NY and CT areas. I have worked in several school districts as an English substitute. I am a very well read individual and I keep on top of what is currently being taught in districts around the area where I live. I particularly enjoy connecting what a student is reading in class with situations in their own life and things taking place in the world around them to help them have a better understanding of the novel.

European History

I have taken more classes on this period of Continental history than any other. When I graduated from Manhattanville in 2011, I received the Gerard Thormann Award for Excellence in European History for my successful study of European history and my dissertation on the Henrican Reformation of England.

Geography

I have a great understanding of geography reaching all the way back to my years in middle school. Geography is fundamental to the understanding of History and Social Studies in school. But It also important in other aspects of life as well, such as business and science. I would like to make sure that my student better understand how we have made an impact on our world.

Government & Politics

My Social Studies degree required me to take several courses on Political Science in order to be more well rounded as a teacher. I have a very good understanding of how our government works and I am widely read in political philosophy.

Literature

I have a great love of literature and reading. The more I read, the more I know and wish to share with others. I want the people that I tutor to come away from my sessions with a greater love and appreciation of learning.

Religion

Since taking a course in college, I have begun to study the religions of the World. I have particular interest in the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions of the West, and I am studying the Eastern religions of India and China in more depth. I feel that when one is studying history, one needs to have a better understanding of the world's religions. It would be my pleasure to introduce to your children the fascinating world of religion.

Social Studies

I am a certified NY and CT social studies teacher. I received my Bachelor's in Social Studies Education in 2011 from Manhattanville College.

World History

I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and I am well versed in the subject of World History. My particular area of concentration is European and Western History.
