About Steven

Hi, my name is Steven and I have always had a great love for History. Ever since my first history report in high school, I was like a fish to water. I have been studying History and American government for more than fifteen years. I obtained an Associate, Bachelor, and Master's degree along the way. I taught, as a substitute teacher, for the Gadsden City School system. I am a United States Army Reserve veteran and currently working on obtaining a PhD in History. My concentrations are in American, Caribbean, African-American, European, Latin-American History and Geography. Contact me for further inquiries.

Approved subjects

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.

American History

American History is a subject I studied in- depth. In college I took American History 101, 102, 201 and 202. In grad-school I took American History 400+ classes and wrote many monographs and research papers on various historical subjects. My concentrations are in early colonial history, Civil War, Reconstruction and African-American History.

Chess

CHESS! "The Game of Kings." I have been playing chess for over 15 years now and my heart still pounds when I play. I have an ELO rating of 1500 and I am an active member of the Gadsden Chess Club, which is now part of the US Chess Federation. I am no grand master but I will guarantee that your game will improve with my help. I have a tournament style chess set so you won't have to worry about having one. I will show you different openings, improve your middle game, and introduce strategies that will improve your end game.

European History

European History is a must know is schools and colleges these days. I have wrote many book reviews and research papers on many topics in the field. Some of the themes I have explored are: The rise of Nation-States, The Napoleonic period, History of England, and Russia. I am well knowledgeable with time periods of Europe during the Roman era to modern day Europe.

Geography

The world is a big place with over seven billion people living in it and a land mass of over 57 million Sq. Miles. There are just under 200 independent nation in the world some with populations of over a billion people. I have always been fascinated with these type of geographic facts and it would be a great learning experience for anybody. I would teach you different types of land masses, the oceans, and much more. So, lets learn about this big-little world we call "Earth."

Government & Politics

American government encompasses not only the study of the systems, institutions, and policies of the United States government but also the political thought and dogmas of the American people.

GRE

I have everything one would need to pass and score high on the new GRE test. Also, I have taken the test twice--both the old version and the new version.

Track & Field

Track and Field has always been a love of mine. In high school, I ran track and field for four years, from 1988 to 1991. My most notable events were the 100 meter sprint, which I placed 2nd in the Alabama State finals 4A, and 3rd in the 200 meter sprint. I also have experience in the long jump and various relay events. In addition, I have tutored students at my old high school to improve on their various track events, and I can do the same for you.

Vocabulary

One million! This is an estimate of the number of words in the English language. The average High School graduate know about 45,000,000 of them. That is just a fraction of what one can learn. I will be able to help expand ones vocabulary so one will be able to effectively express onesself in a clear and concise manner. It will be easy and fun at the same time.

World History

I am well versed on the subject of world history and have many years of study. We can start by taking a look at the different cradles of civilization, focusing on history of different time periods. Finally, studying the historiography of history i.e. methodology and development of "history" (as a discipline).
