Hello, my name is Ryan. I am certified to teach Social Studies and History at the Secondary Level. My focus has been American History with a sprinkling of European and Ancient History. As part of Social Studies I am certified to teach Geography, Political Science and Economics. To be honest I don't like economics very much. In 2012, I received a Masters Degree in Social Science, focusing on History, Geography and Political Science.
Through my day job I have taken several online classes that have made me proficient in most Microsoft programs - Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Access.
For the past four years I have been volunteering at a local museum. In my time at the museum I have been elected President of the Westland Historical Society and been appointed to the Westland Historical Commission.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a BA in Social Studies and an MA in Social Science. My main focus has been in Early American History from Colonial times to the American Civil War. During my Student Teaching at Garden City High School I taught four 9th Grade history classes for a month and covered subject from WWI to the Cold War.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies, which includes Economics. The two subjects I have taken in this area are Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. As part of my Social studies degree I am certified to teach Economics in the State of Michigan.
I have lived my whole life in the United States. I have a pretty good working knowledge of the English language, both formal and colloquial. I even write the apology letter to guests at my hotel job, because my managers don't know how to.
While I don't have any formal training in ESL or ESOL, I was born in the United States and have helped several friends from other countries learn to express themselves better in the US. One of my current co-workers is Albanian and has been he for about five years, she has learned more by talking to me that anyone else. My method is to sit and talk with the person in English and explain this as they come up. I can also help with the citizenship test if needed.
As part of my studies in Social Studies and Social Science I took several European History courses. Most recently, as part of my master's degree, I took a Crusades course in which we read accounts of at least four different crusades into the Holy Land from Europe. European History covers everything from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West to the Fall of the Third Reich in Germany, all packed full of interesting stories of adventure and suspense.
I have taken many different Geography courses over the last ten years or so. I have extensive knowledge of basic Geographic concepts and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). My last project for my Masters was to map a cemetery near my home in which I used GPS to mark on a map, electronically, where each grave marker was located so loved ones could visit them.
My Bachelor's and Master's degree both have political science as one of the core subjects. For the past ten years or more I have served as a precinct delegate in my home town. And History, Government and Politics are so closely linked that you can't help to talk about one while talking of another.
I have been playing poker with friends and family for over 10 years. Even though I am an amateur I know the rules. I know what hands beat what.
