My name is Eric L. and I am excited about the potential of being your tutor for any History or Social Studies topics! A native of Pennsylvania I have lived in Southern Virginia for the past four years. Recently I relocated to NOVA to be closer to friends and family and work at a local high school where I have earned the respect of my students as a fun and energetic teacher. I am willing to go that extra mile for students in whatever form necessary.

With over six years' experience in both Pennsylvania and Virginia I am well versed in all Social Studies subjects and the VA SOL Tests for Social Studies courses, having taught them all at least once in my career. I connect well with my students and have a gift for communicating the material beyond the classroom and into the world around my students. Always seeking to develop well rounded students, I focus on developing critical thinking skills and creating interdisciplinary lessons by teacher reinforced student centered activities.
