I am a trained historian, holding the M.Phil in American history from Columbia University where I was a fellowship doctoral candidate. After college graduation I worked for four years in the U.S. Senate as a press secretary to the late John Heinz. I'm a published writer with expertise in American and European history, African American history and literature, American literature and American studies. I ghost-wrote the posthumous memoirs of the late broadcast journalist David Brinkley (Brinkley's Beat, 2002), have published in several peer-reveiwed journals and published books, and presented papers at national conferences. I'm well-traveled in the US, Europe and Mexico which broadens my ability to contextualize and provide illustrations to students.

In addition to my dissertation manuscript, which examines a notorious lynching in South Carolina, I am working on an in-depth article for publication in a national magazine about education reform in New Orleans, along with a profile of a Peruvian retablos artisan.

I love American history and literature and believe that literacy in the humanities is integral to democracy, for molding critical thinkers and informed citizens. I work well with young people and can tailor sessions to the individual needs and goals of students.

Thank you for considering me.

I am a published writer with an excellent understanding of grammar and vocabulary.

Social Studies

I am qualified to tutor in social studies because I have studied American history and culture at the doctoral level and read extensively in world history, geography, civics and political philosophy. I enjoy the subject immensely.

Study Skills

I am a doctoral candidate in American history at Columbia University in New York City. Prior to returning to graduate school, I worked as a press secretary to a US Senator in Washington D.C. Organization is essential to performance, whether it's in the classroom as a student or teacher, or in a professional setting. One of my strengths is an ability to break assignments or a menu of deadlines into discrete components as a way to map out the desired goal. The students I've worked with have all made progress in their respective fields as a result of developing a new mindset and approach to workloads that seem overwhelming otherwise.
