About Jason

My goal as a little kid was to always be helpful to others. I remember wanting to be a firefighter, a police officer and a teacher. As I grew up, I decided that teaching would be my area of expertise, and consequently went to Wayland Baptist University to complete a Double Major Bachelor's Degree in History and Education. I am very passionate about History and studying it. I am a native speaker of German, and have spent much of my free time playing with computers. I was given the chance to teach classes on Microsoft Suites (Word, Excel, Access, Outlook, Power Point etc), which I was very successful with.

My philosophy, when it comes to tutoring is learning by doing. This is especially true in History. History cannot be taught by lecturing, it must be taught by interacting with the student, otherwise you cannot be successful in teaching history. Studying Microsoft Suites is very similar in that manner - it cannot be taught by simply lecturing about various topics, the student must be given a chance to explore the programs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

When I tutor History, it is a very interactive Subject. To fully grasp American History, you have to be immersed in it, interact with it. American History is actually also "Herstory." When talking about American History it is not only the male population that made America great, it is also the females of this country who contributed to its history, to what America is today.

English

Despite the fact that I am originally from Germany, I have been exposed to English my entire life. I started watching Disney movies in English when I was a child, started officially learning English in school. In the past, I've taught English at the Volkshochschule in Karlsruhe, Germany, (it's a school for adult learning) where I am originally from, for a few years, prior to living in the United States.

European History

Similarly to American History, European History must be taught interactively. Interact with it. Learn every angle of it. Real European food, reenactments of important events in European History, etc. European History is a large area to cover. However, it is also very interesting. All the ideals, philosophies that shaped Europe to what it is today, and also the influence Europe has had on the USA.

General Computer

Computers are used everyday in most job situations. It is important that we know how to use them. I grew up with Computers and have taken them apart and put them back together, as such I will be able to teach you about everything Computer related from hardware to Software.

Geography

Geography is something every student should be familiar with - There are so many jobs these days that require some knowledge of Geography. I enjoy Geography, and growing up in Europe is extremely helpful because everything is so close together. The study of Geography can be supported with Pictures. I don't like the idea of just lecturing, so there will definitely be a lot of Interaction taking place.

German

German made easy - I speak it, i grew up with it, I can make sure that you learn German as it is spoken today, through dialogues and everyday situations.

Microsoft Access

I have taught classes in Access 2003 and spent a long time in my free time studying it. I also use it at home from time to time to organize my personal belongings into Databases.

Microsoft Excel

Excel is the calculator of today. You can use excel to do all kinds of math for you, additionally, you can create tables and charts to assist you in any situation. I can teach you how to use everything about Excel. Building budgets, keeping track of your money etc.

Microsoft Outlook

I have taught classes on Outlook, additionally I use it for personal use.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Power Point is a program I use to create Presentations, birthday cards and much more. It is easy to use and helps should you have to create that important presentation for work or impress a teacher at school. I can teach you how to do all of this and so much more.

Microsoft Word

Word is used as a word processor. Word can correct your spelling, Grammar and be a handy tool in creating a resume or a Cover letter or even write books. I can help you navigate through its many features and show you that it is an easy tool to work with, and if used right, can definitely work for you!

World History

World History - my favorite. It provides an overview of several historical topics, such as European History, American History and more. It is a good subject if you wanted to get a general feel for History, but still gives you enough detail to get satisfied. As with American and European History, World History is best taught through the hands on approach, and as such, we will be focusing on an interactive way of teaching to keep you interested and excited about History.
