I am a high school social studies
teacher with over 30 years of experience, additionally; I have specialized in Advanced Placement History
for 10 of those years with better than an 80 percent pass rate in AP European History
, AP US History
, AP World History
and AP Human Geography
. In working with these College Board programs, I am employed by the College Board as a test reader, table leader for test grading and a national presenter for other Advanced Placement teachers. In doing so, I have gained deep understanding of how to write college level historical analysis. I have tremendous strengths in thesis writing
, understanding point of view, and teaching students to express themselves at the collegiate level in all levels of historical writing: essay
, book review, and historiography. With a Masters of History college degree and over 35 years of experience in secondary education, students who follow my program have a high success rate at major universities. My students are not intimidated by their college essay
assignments. Strong analytical writing is the cornerstone to pleasing college professors.
Additionally, I have taught high school and conversational Spanish
, and English
for Speakers of other Languages, plus some limited experience in Latin
. I have an extensive background in playing and coaching sports and other extracurricular activities. I have successfully tutored in all grade levels.
I strive to bring an attitude of teamwork to learning. My students learn by doing through a variety of activities that keep them focused on skill development. By teaching and reinforcing these skills students quickly master their own learning styles and solve new problems confidently. I love to share the joy of success in their education with my students to make them “life-long learners”.
