Cheers Everyone,
My name is Anthony and I have a flair for explaining complex things, simply. If your child is struggling with any historical topic, I have the experience and patience to guide them towards greater understanding and much better grades.

I have over 1.5 years of history tutoring and teaching experience at the University of Texas at Austin, where I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. I gave lectures, directed tutoring sessions individually with dozens of students, and gave detailed feedback to email queries as well. I am very widely read: the history of the Middle East is my forte, but I am well-versed in British Indian history, 19th-century European history, modern Cold War history, and much more.

My methods are clear and direct: I help my students grasp historical context before bewildering them with details. I am a patient, friendly, and gentle tutor who does not believe in putting needless pressure on students. More than anything, I hope to transmit just a little of the love I bear for history to my students, and watch them thrive.

Lastly, I am also very capable of giving lessons in English, particularly in vocabulary and proper essay writing. I have logged well over 1000 pages of writing in my life, and I don't even have a PhD yet!

All the best,
Anthony

Social Studies


I have studied cultures from around the world, particularly Islamic societies in the Middle East. My reading has taken from the rise of the early Muslim community in Mecca and Medina, through the the Crusades, to the rise of the Ottoman Empire and beyond. I am trained in sociological theory and can explain cultural differences between peoples in rational and descriptive (rather than persuasive) terms. I am very capable of adjusting my vocabulary and terminology according to my audience.
