Dear students and parents,

I have recently graduated. My major is education with a concentration in history and political science. During my college years I have taken close to 130 credit hours. A majority of my credit hours have been devoted to multiple areas of history including European, American, African, Asian and Hispanic. I have volunteered with multiple after-school programs where I was a tutor and a mentor for middle school and high school students. I really enjoyed my time with these programs, and I feel like I can make tutoring fun instead of boring and help your student study for important exams like Regents. I have obtained my bachelor's and am currently certified. I have spent countless hours in a classroom teaching and observing (through observations and subbing), so I am familiar with multiple approaches of teaching and differentiated learning styles. I have worked as a substitute teacher and substitute teaching assistant therefore I am used to working one on one with a student just like a tutor would do. I hope that I can help your student with what they are struggling with or need more practice in and assist in developing helpful study skills for the future.

American History

I am a graduated college student that has studied multiple areas of history. I have taught American history during student teaching and while I was a long term substitute. I have experience teaching in 7th, 8th, and 10th grade history classrooms. Each consists of a small or large portion of American history. I have made lessons based on American history and have tutored a student for the U.S. History Regents.

Political Science

While obtaining my education degree my concentration was in Social Studies. At the college I attended their social studies was linked with political science. I have taken 8 credits of political science. A lot of political science concepts are embedded in a typical history class which I have taken many of while obtaining my degree.

Regents

I am a graduated college student majoring in history education. I took the Regents and took review courses when taking them so I know how they are structured. I have observed multiple hours in history classrooms where Regents review was taught. I am friends with a fellow tutor who tutors history Regents so he has given me advice and feedback about what is successful. I have tutored previous students in Regents materials.

Social Studies

I am a graduated college student that has studied multiple areas of history including European, African, American, and Hispanic. I have experience tutoring students in social studies. I have experience teaching in 7th, 8th, and 10th grade history classroom. Social studies consists of different types of history as well as concepts which I have learned as a student past and present.

Study Skills

As a college student I had a 3.7 GPA. I think to have that GPA you have to have somewhat good study skills. I have learned multiple different types of study skills through the many years of schooling. I know what can work and what can't. I am taught in differentiated learning styles through my education classes.

World History

I am a graduated college student that has studied multiple areas of history including European, African, American, and Hispanic history. These different cultural areas represent my knowledge in multiple areas of the world. I have experience teaching in a 7th, 8th, and 10th grade history classroom which covers vast amount of world history topics. I not only mastered these areas from teaching and tutoring them but from my classwork and history certification exam.
