About Jordan

I currently have a Bachelor's Degree in History. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University of Long Beach. I live in Fountain Valley and have a bit of tutoring experience. My GPA at CSULB was a 3.88. I have almost always received As in history classes. I currently have a Bachelor's degree, and am attending graduate school to obtain my Master's degree.

I consider myself a great writer and communicator. I've been asked before to join the IVC speech team. My essays were often considered "model writing" by teachers, who asked to use them as examples of good work in the future. I can easily help students with writing essays or studying history.

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

I received a 5/5 on the AP United States exam. I also achieved As in every single US History class I've taken. I've tutored American History before as well. This is by far my strongest subject.

Geography

Geography is not a difficult subject. It usually relies more on one's ability to use mnemonic devices successfully rather than the utilization of any specific skill-sets. I am happy to tutor anybody on this subject so long as I am given fair warning ahead of time regarding what kind of assignments they have (example: Do you have to study a map of Europe? Do you have an African map quiz? Do you need to know the states and capitals of the United States of America? I would need to know this). After studying for awhile, I would probably compile a list of helpful memorization tips for a student and then meet with them.

Spelling

I m dislexus ad cant spel wel!

Haha, I'm joking of course! I am competent enough at spelling, obviously. My lexicon is pretty well developed, and writing a myriad of essays teaches you proper spelling and grammar. I cannot imagine why anybody would need a spelling tutor unless they actually had the problem mentioned in the introduction of my subject description (in which case, you have my apology as well as my sympathy). However, I figured I might as well add a description to this subject anyway.

World History

The difficulty with World History is that it is an extremely broad topic with curriculum that varies from teacher to teacher. Some teachers treat World History as if it was another European History class with one or two glances at other civilizations (any combination of Japan, the Arab world, pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, India and China). Others prefer a less Eurocentric approach that focuses entire units on non-European countries.

This is a strong subject of mine. I graduated magna cum laude at CSULB with focuses in Asian history and US History, but also took several classes outside the purview of either. I've received excellent scores in World History classes (A's in every WH class I've taken, including an online one from UC Berkeley).

Writing

I absolutely adore alliteration. Similes flow from me like grains of sand in the ocean. I never need hyperbole either: I am simply the greatest paragon of writing around.

Joking aside, I consider myself a respectable writer. Writing essays is admittedly something that I spend a lot of time on, which might be an issue when I tutor. However, I believe the results I deliver speak for themselves.

Examples: I remember writing an essay on the subject of Modernization in a World History class once. The teacher asked me to let her use it as an example of exemplary writing for other students. I write speeches well too, but these are more like blueprints than complete works.

It may or may not be relevant, but I am also a rapid typist.
