I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and a concentration in International Studies. I am very passionate about my subject and am eager to help others understand it. Not only is History an important subject to understand, but more importantly I believe it is supposed to be enjoyable. History is one big story with many events and characters. Returning to the importance of history, it is critical that you understand the facts and are able to synthesize them on paper or orally.
My methods consist of leading the student to answer his own question by guiding him to it. Also, I am very good at being conscious that the student understands the context of the subject, since context is integral to understanding anything. Additionally, I am professional, responsible and good at problem solving, but also fun.
I have some teaching experience and have tutored since high school. For a summer, I taught as a religious educator for a program called Totus Tuus. It consisted of both formal and informal teaching. For tutoring specifically, I have tutored my younger siblings and the children of friends, mostly in history, and gave sewing lessons. I have also aided fellow students throughout college with their history classes. In both high school and in college I have assisted in test preparation and with papers. I have been informed on several occasions that I am very good at tutoring.
