Hello! With over five years of teaching experience at both the middle and school levels, I know that working one-on-one with a student can make all the difference. My background is mostly in the humanities as a history and social studies teacher; however, I have extensive experience teaching writing of all varieties (5 paragraph essay, DBQ essays, persuasive, expository, compare and contrast), preparing students for the Regents exams in Global History and American History, and instructing students on basic organization and study skills. I also have experience helping students to design cover letters, resumes, and writing samples for jobs, service organizations, and internships. Teaching history is exciting and fun, and I like to think my enthusiasm for the subject matter reaches the students I teach. I love braiding the academic study of history and issues of the world with life lessons, humor, and the creation of community and personal relationships.
I utilize a variety of teaching techniques when it comes to tutoring; but ultimately choose what is best for the student. I want all of the students I work with to be successful and set high expectations and goals for themselves. It is my hope that I will help them achieve those goals and expectations.
My rate is set at $60/hr, however is negotiable depending on the subject matter and student. I look forward to working with new students all the time, so feel free to reach out!
