I am a veteran high school history and journalism teacher and am now working on a PhD. I have a BA in History, an MA in English with a writing concentration, and am MS in Clinical Mental Health. I have tutoring experience in English and Social Studies as well as general academic skill areas. I am experienced working with young adults, including college and high school students.
I have taught an honors course in American Political History, advised a nationally recognized student newspaper. I have also particularly loved teaching 20th Century US History, anything military history, and find Civics and Political Science of great interest. I also have background in other areas of social studies including Economics and Psychology. I have pursued additional coursework in each of those areas.
I hope to work with you soon! Greetings!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am a licensed political science, history, and broad field social studies teacher in Wisconsin. I am an adjunct instructor in the Justice Department at Mount Mary University where I teach introductory Justice courses at the college level.
Part of my teaching load includes advising an academic club that engages in Mock Congressional Hearings, where public speaking is vital. We have advanced to the National Finals each of the last two years. I have also been a presenter at numerous local, state, regional, and national conferences and thus have a wide array of public speaking experience including keynote talks.
As a social studies teacher, I have specific training in teaching reading in the content area. Further, my masters degree in English included heavy emphasis on both reading and writing instruction while also training me in literary studies.
I have played high school and collegiate soccer (and still hold a few records). I have coached club, high school, and collegiate soccer. I ref club soccer and am eligible to ref high school soccer. I have served as a private position coach for a number of athletes over the years.
I have over a decade of experience as a public school teacher and have been tutoring and coaching within my community for much of that time. As part of my work as an academic adviser for different academic co-curriculars, a central aspect of my role is fostering the development of student organizational skills. Additionally, core to my teaching responsibilities have been facilitating an academic skills lab that includes a significant amount of study skills work. I also have a M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through which I am trained in behavioral intervention strategies.
I work full time as a history teacher in a local high school. I love bringing history to life and helping people find the significance in things past by finding contemporary applications of the historic ideas and events.
I have an extensive background in writing, including a Master's Degree in English with a writing concentration. I work full time as an educator, including work in our school writing center and time advising a nationally recognized student newspaper. I have experience writing for publications, serving as a collegiate newspaper editor-in-chief, and generally love writing and helping others with writing.
