About Howard

In addition to my studies in college (two BAs from Humboldt State University), I have enhanced my knowledge of US History, world history, geography and economics with work and research throughout the USA, Latin America, Europe and Asia. I served three years as a part time teacher at St. John Orthodox Academy in San Francisco where I wrote their first College Board approved curriculum for Advanced Placement Class (AP) in US History. I also have tutoring experience in college. In addition to American History, I have extensively studied Asian, European and Islamic histories.

I bring an enthusiasm for my subjects reinforced by experience and independent study which I communicate to each student.

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 knowledgeable in all parts of American History, including geographical background, pre-Columbian America, California history, all Presidents and the Revolution, Manifest Destiny, Civil War, Gilded Age, the Progressive era and especially the 20th Century.

Religion

My credentials on this subject are based on independent study and personal experience. I have informally yet extensively studied most major religions and have read many of the world's scriptures (in English) including the Four Gospels, the Five Books of Moses and several other books of the Bible as well as commentaries. In addition, I have read the Tao of Lao-tzu, the Bhagavad Gita, biographies of Buddha, Sufi texts and most of the Qoran. I have lived in Muslim nations. I also have some understanding of Native American faiths including Black Elk's visions, Tecumseh's prophecies and the 1876 Sun Dance of Sitting Bull. I have some familiarity with so-called minor religions such as Zoroastrianism, Sikhism and Asian Shamanism.

World History

I have studied World History and especially Western Civilization, as well as the basics of Islamic and East Asian histories at high school and college levels (Humboldt State University).
