Hello, my name is Michael! I have taught for 10 ½ years, first at the University of Arkansas, and then at Northwest Arkansas Community College. While at the university I received faculty and student feedback on my teaching techniques, which helped me improve my work. I selected the textbooks for my courses, and wrote my own lectures. At Northwest Arkansas Community College, I continue to write and revise my own lectures, based on new readings and research in world history (I continually read in both history and classics in order to stay fresh on the subjects). My subjects are Western Civilization and World Civilizations, though I have also taught both halves of U.S. history.
In addition, I tutored Razorback Athletes for the University of Arkansas Athletics Department for 4 years. I tutored in U.S. history, World Civilizations, Western Civilization, U.S. government, and Latin. The students had a wide range of abilities, and I tutored them in both individual and group sessions. Tutoring them was one of the most enjoyable parts of my time at the University of Arkansas, and taught me patience and persistence in a way that nothing else has really matched.

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.
During my undergraduate coursework, my secondary major was in Classical Studies. In addition, a large part of my work in my primary major (History) was in the history of the classical world. I have taught classical history as a portion of Western Civilization I for many semesters. Finally, I have tutored students in classics (both language and literature) at the University of Arkansas.
