About Brooks

I have been involved in education for 6 years--teaching for 4 and tutoring for 2. I've tutored a wide range of topics for a wide range of learners, but I most love tutoring Statistics and History. My mother and wife are teachers as well, so I'm surrounded by learning and education.

Since I'm also pursuing my PhD in Educational Psychology, learning is my life.

In my time tutoring, I've seen firsthand how valuable one-on-one attention can be in helping students feel more confident and prepared and ultimately reach their true potential in the classroom.

Statistics is SO valuable in understanding the world around us. I'm currently tutoring a student in AP Statistics and it has been such a positive experience! I'd like to help more students succeed in Stat.

I have a Master's degree in history from Georgetown University and have taught US History for three years. I'm currently tutoring two students in US History and it's been a lot of fun. In my sessions, I create a more conversational approach to learning History while also giving students concrete methods of reviewing material.

In addition to U.S. History, I have also taught courses in World History and Ethics. I have tutored these subjects as well.

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 have an MA in History from Georgetown University. My concentration was in intellectual history of the early modern Atlantic (England and Colonial/Revolutionary America). I taught high school U.S. History for 3 years.

English

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in English Literature in 2007, where I graduated cum laude.

Statistics

As a graduate student in educational psychology, I have gone through rigorous training in quantitative research methods, which includes training in basic and advanced statistics and experimental design. I have successfully tutored students in both regular and AP statistics.

World History

I have an MA in Global, International, and Comparative History from Georgetown University. My core coursework involved courses in World History, and my concentration was in the history of the early-modern Atlantic (England and Colonial America). I have also taught high school World History.
