I am very excited for this opportunity to teach you (or your child) about subjects based in the humanities. I am a 2011 graduate of Carthage College, where I received a B.A. in History, and minored in Classical Studies. This will be my first attempt at delving into tutoring, outside of tutoring friends and peers while I was in college. I have a background in museum work, and through the various positions I've held, I have seen the importance of educating students about our past and how exciting it can be!
I would love the opportunity to assist students in American history, European history (or world history), ancient civilizations, mythology, government, English/literature, and writing
I know that some students dislike learning the humanities; finding history to be about memorizing dates, and classic literature to be stuffy and boring. As someone who has immersed himself in this world, I truly believe that if a student thinks about the topic in the proper way, then they will most certainly understand it in a new way.
Thank you very much for your consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon!
In college, I supplemented my History major by minoring in Classical Studies. Through this minor, I took a year of Attic Greek as a foreign language. I also have a great deal of experience with classical mythology and art, egyptian history/mythology, and the history of the ancient middle east.
