I'm a recent graduate from New York University, where I majored in both history and film. I have three years of experience teaching summer classes to 3rd-9th graders and an encyclopedic knowledge of world history, from the Assyrians to the Zulu. Before doing this, I worked at the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, where I made educational videos. Any student with a strong grounding in history can rack up top scores on history APs and SAT subject tests, and getting students excited about history is what I do.
