About Truman


Bio

Hi! My name is Truman and I just graduated cum laude from UCSC with a B.A in Intensive History! The college experience was really valuable to me because I was able to dive into a subject that I'm really passionate about, and I definitely learned a lot; Not only in the sense that I was able to know more about history, but because I was able to better understand both myself and the world around better as a result. At UCSC, and I would assume, all universities in general, you are granted access...

Hi! My name is Truman and I just graduated cum laude from UCSC with a B.A in Intensive History! The college experience was really valuable to me because I was able to dive into a subject that I'm really passionate about, and I definitely learned a lot; Not only in the sense that I was able to know more about history, but because I was able to better understand both myself and the world around better as a result. At UCSC, and I would assume, all universities in general, you are granted access to so many resources that can help you succeed! I spent lots of time in office hours with my professors and T.A's, and the ability to discuss complex topics on a very personal basis is something that was really valuable to my academic success, History is a very deep subject, and each person's interpretation of the various events that have occurred in the past is really valuable, and I would love to be able to share my passion with students!

As for tutoring students, I spent a year at KUMON as a student instructor where I worked with students of all ages from the K-12 range. In addition to tutoring, I also helped to maintain our database of grades for over 100 students while also doing the actual grading itself. I am still relatively new to tutoring on a 1-on-1 basis, so feel free to ask me any questions!

The History major at UCSC is a writing-intensive one, and I was able to further hone my writing skills during my time there. In addition, I also scored a 4 on the AP Lang test in high school. Furthermore, during my time at UCSC I read a plethora of academic works, and I myself feel like my writing style has gotten more advanced due to said exposure, though I am still far from being able to write at the PhD. level.

I graduated with from the Intensive History major GPA of 3.6, and also scored 4's on the AP American and World History Test. For the Intensive Major, rather than writing one undergraduate thesis, we were required to write three and I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge it presented me with. I've loved history
