About Elijah

I have experience in tutoring student athletes at the high school and middle school level as well as my own siblings and friends. I was a teachers aid for three years in high school and that opened the door for my career choice and my college experience.

I am enrolled at Golden West College and I am majoring in History with a minor in Mythology and an emphasis in teaching. I know that last part was a mouth full but essentially all it means is I want to teach high school history/ mythology. I feel the experience of learning should not be forced and every individual has their own way of taking in and holding information and that the first step in a proper study and learning style is to figure out how the information is best obtained and retained. I look forward to the opportunity to help students grow and thrive and in turn be a part of the future of this world.

History was a favorite subject in high school (mainly due to an outstanding teacher) and I decided to pursue it at the college level. Every semester I have 1-3 history courses as well as mythology when I can find them. This has only strengthened my love for history and as well opened my mind to teaching. History for me isn't just a subject it is a passion that I wish to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. My college life is fairly bland and my classes are morning and early afternoons so I am available anytime in the afternoon to evening. Feel free to contact me to learn more and see if you would like to learn something new or relearn and retain something old. I'm an open book so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Background Check: Passed

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 am a History Major in my second year of my Associates degree program at Golden West College and will be transferring next year to Cal State Long Beach. My major area of interest is in US history and the political and economic histories of the US as well. I also have many different methods to studying and test taking procedures because what works for one student may not work for another so there must be many options to explore.

European History

To understand the history of the modern world you must first understand the history of the people and the places from which it was born and that is mainly Europe. European history is full of vibrant tales, rise and fall of kings and emperors and many daring tales of exploration and conquest. Throughout my studies I have yet to find a piece of European history that isn't full of excitement and in many ways doesn't ever leave you bored or tired, but in fact makes you want to delve deeper into the rich history of that part of the world that has influenced many great nations. My major is history and in order to fully understand the history of the world we must understand the places from which our current world was influenced and Europe has been the most influential.

Government & Politics

Government and Politics is a bomb waiting to explode in many peoples minds these days. The mere thought of bringing these subjects up at the dinner table can cause most anyone to sweat due to the many different views that we as humans hold on the subject. How did it come to this though? In looking at our past and how this great nation was founded along with the practices of other nations and empires we can find out how this once great system has become what it has become and even look closer at where it is going by following the trends of the past. Government is much broader than just republicans and democrats as well as politics is not just a show put on for the masses every four years and to understand this we need to first understand how, when, where and most importantly why it all started and how it has changed. As a history major I have been subjected to many Political and Government courses and have been trained in looking past bias in the media to grasp a truer and clearer view of the world around us, I just hope to share this clarity with my students.

Social Studies

During my junior and senior years of high school I was a teacher's aid in Social Studies. During that time I not only tutored students but also helped prep for tests and go over homework to aid in their understanding and retention of the subject. I am currently a History major in college and have extensive knowledge and background in the field of Social Studies as it pertains to my education and career goals. Social Studies is not only history based but is as well the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities which means it covers a broader spectrum than just the history of the world but the history of civilizations and the world around them.

World History

I am a History Major in my second year of my Associates degree program at Golden West College and will be transferring next year to Cal State Long Beach. My major area of interest is in US/ World history and the political and economic histories of the world as well. I also have many different methods to studying and test taking procedures because what works for one student may not work for another so there must be many options to explore.
