I am a graduate student at the University of Miami working on my PhD in US & European History. I currently hold a Master's in English from New York University and a Master's in US History from North Carolina State University. I have six years experience as a teaching assistant, working with undergraduates on making a successful transition into college, and have spent a year teaching history at St. AUgustine's University in Raleigh, NC. I am currently working as a teaching assistant at the University of Miami as I pursue my graduate studies.

Everyone learns at their own pace. Teachers in an institutional setting have to set the pace that gets through the prescribed curriculum. While this works for some of the students, it doesn't work for all. The role of the tutor is to supplement what happens in the classroom at the pace to assure individual learning. A tutor should supplement the classroom experience as well as prepare the student for important tests and projects. Everyone needs extra help at some point in their careers. The earlier you engage with a tutor the quicker you start to see success.

I am pleased to work with students in middle school, high school or undergraduates. In the spirit of candor, I do not speak Spanish - which is an important language in South Florida - so if you or your student needs to communicate in Spanish, I would not be your best choice. I hope you'll take this as an example of my honest approach to tutoring. Be honest, be open and be willing to admit if things aren't working out.

From a scheduling perspective, I am no restrictions on weekends, and am available on many week nights as well.

If my qualifications and approach seem to meet your needs, I would look forward to providing tutoring as you need it. And thank you for reading through this short introduction,.
