I am a recent college graduate and newly commissioned officer in the US Army Reserve. I graduated from high school with International Baccalaureate certificates in psychology, history, English and Spanish. I was a professor's assistant for three years while I was in college in the subjects of world history and American foreign policy. I also tutored Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Army ROTC cadets in beginners Arabic after having studied the language in the magnificent country of Jordan.
I believe that learning about history involves repetition and thinking about history as a fascinating story. I use written and oral drills to facilitate memorization of historical events.
I believe that learning a foreign language is all about having no fear. You can't be afraid of the language or the accents or the nuances - you have to just go for it. Language is a combination of memorization, drills, writing and culture. It is a fun experience that doesn't have to be painful.
