I am a PA State Certified History Teacher who is available to tutor in many areas. I have experience teaching and tutoring American, World, and European History as well as U.S. Government and Politics. I specialize in AP preparation, as well as writing, research, and note taking skills. I hold an advanced degree in Education from the University of Pennsylvania.
As a tutor, I work to get to know each of my students and their families. Understanding the different needs and learning styles of each student is important to developing a comprehensive tutoring plan. I believe that learning should be engaging and fun, and students must be actively involved in the entire process.
As a Pennsylvania state certified public education teacher, I received extensive training in teaching students with special needs (including students with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities). As a graduated student at Penn, I received instruction in teaching special needs students in inclusive classroom. As a public school teacher, I have been trained in how to successfully teach students with IEPs for a variety of reasons using strategies such as differentiated instruction, multiple intelligences, formative assessment, etc. I co-taught classes designed for special education students to promote inclusion. As a tutor, the vast majority of my students have special needs, and I successfully work with their parents, teachers, and psychologists to assist them in managing their academic work.
