I am a graduate of Johnson State College with a Bachelors of Arts degree in history. At Johnson I studied U.S. history as well as world history with my main concentration from early colonial times till the reconstruction. I also have studied medieval Europe and modern Middle East. I have covered Western Civilization, ranging from the Fertile Crescent till the Renaissance. I have a basic understanding of Asian culture but I am better at discussing American history as well as U.S. politics. I will be attending Norwich University to earn my masters degree in American History. I can also be reached online for help if needed to make it easier for both student and parents. Online is a way in which I can help the student as quickly as possible instead of waiting for the next session.
It is my idea that history should be more than memorizing dates from history. I believe that it is better to know the reasons why things happened in history and how they are still affecting us today which will give the student a better understanding of history. Case in point, the Treaty of Versailles of 1919 was the main reason Germany led the world into World War II and why we are having so much trouble in the Middle East today. Why were the Germans the instigators of World War II? Was it because the Treaty of Versailles was too austere for the German economy making it impossible for the German people to ever honor the treaty? These are questions I would like to help your students to understand and to give their own opinion on these subjects.
