If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees in history from Baylor University. I am also a certified teacher in Texas for all social studies curriculum grades 8-12. My teaching experience includes world geography, world history, and US history. I also have experience tutoring elementary students in math and reading.

Along with teaching, I have extensive experience with writing and excel at proofreading and editing papers for content, sentence structure, citations, and overall flow. If you need this service, please let me know, as I would love to help you hone your writing skills or improve your project.

My main focus and teaching philosophy is to make the material interesting and relative to the student to help aid the learning process. Every student is an individual with different learning styles and multiple intelligences. I strive to reach each student where they are, where they want to be, and to use their own strengths to benefit them and their learning.
