A Few Tutor Qualifications

Ecology has been a fascinating subject for me for years. I have studied it, as it deals with the supply and demand of resources in the environment. I have studied ecosystems, energy flow through a food web, the balance of nature. the impact of pollution, and many other such subjects integral to ecology. I can explain concepts of ecology in a very practical and understandable way.I also have the ability help a student understand what a course is looking to teach, so that a student can maximize study time, to ace a course. I enjoy finding different student's methods of learning and helping students define and realize their dreams through successful education. Additionally, I can explain what the courses are looking for a student to learn, and how to study to ace the courses.

In addition, I am frequently hired to play at special events such as weddings.

They are United States history from colonization to present; world history from early civilization to present; Michigan history major events; geography locations, characteristics and how they are interrelated; different types of government in the world, their characteristics, how they are different, and legal processes that different countries use. I also have experience researching history papers and determining types of sources and using citations.
