I have loved teaching and studying history and social studies since my youth. I have a Ph.D. in U.S. history and over seven years of college teaching experience in U.S. and world history. I believe that every student has the ability to improve their history skills, including writing, reasoning, and information retention, which will help them in many subjects beyond history.

I specialize in U.S., world, and European history, though I can cover many other fields as well. I can also help with geography and other social studies topics. While working with students, I focus on developing their abilities in reading, writing, and research, starting with their current assignments and working from there to see if additional practice is needed.

I am flexible with time and travel needs, but I do require at least two hours' notice for cancellations. I will not submit a bill if the student or parent is not completely satisfied.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope that I can serve you!

Approved subjects

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.

American History

I have a Ph.D. in U.S. history. I also have over seven years' experience teaching U.S. history at the college level. Finally, I have a year's tutoring experience in the subject as well.

Bible Studies

I have attended church since childhood and received countless hours of biblical instruction, in addition to my own private study of the Bible. I have taken multiple college-level courses on Christian history, doctrine, and practice. Also, I have taught on these subjects on numerous occasions in the course of teaching U.S. and world history.

European History

I have a Ph.D. in U.S. history, but also have taken many undergraduate and graduate courses in European history as well. I have served as a teaching assistant for several western civilization courses. Also, I have read widely in the field and have designed courses in European history as well.

I have taught college-level geography. Also, my advanced degrees in history involved much geographical knowledge. Finally, I have been a geography and map nerd since childhood, having once been a state geography bee champion.

Religion

I have taken multiple college-level courses on Christianity, particularly on theology and the Old and New Testaments. My historical education (including courses on the Far East, Middle East, European history, etc.) has included extensive background in religion. Finally, I have extensive knowledge of the Bible, Christian doctrine and history, etc.

Social Studies

I have over seven years' experience in teaching college-level history courses, which all require extensive geographic and political knowledge. I have also taught college-level geography and political science. Finally, as a former state geography bee champion and map nerd, I have enjoyed geography and related subjects since childhood.
