I am a certified high school/middle school History and Social Science educator. I am a graduate of Carthage College in Kenosha, WI and have recently moved back to my home town of Streamwood Illinois. I graduated from Carthage with all-college honors and departmental honors in my majors of History and Social Sciences. I am a driven, dedicated and empathetic individual who challenges my students to reach their full potential and to embrace each academic opportunity presented. I am a strong believe in using primary documents in order to help students gain a more personal and direct understanding of a historical event or time period. I believe it is essential that students know how to identify biases, perform independent research, strength their writing skills and come to appreciate their own individual strengths. As a tutor and teacher I recognize the importance in feedback and welcome it from students and parents. It is my priority that your student's specific learning styles are recognized and their needs are met. I devote myself and my time to finding a variety of ways to introduce material and work with students.
