About Adam

During my graduate education I had the privilege of being a Teaching Assistant in four college-level courses for over 250 students assigned to my classes. As a result, I have logged many rewarding hours helping students write successful papers. I have an appreciation for the finer details in the English language from writing constantly throughout my academic career as well as reading countless student papers. I can help with college test preparation in developing effective reading strategies and building a vocabulary for the ACT and SAT.

I remember studying for the ACT, and the skills required for success in the English and reading sections. These are the same skills colleges look for in prospective students, and the skills I have been developing throughout my time as a student in the humanities and social sciences. I have worked with countless college students as a teaching assistant to help improve their writing.

I excelled on my AP US HIstory exam, have taken college-level courses in American history, and I love American history!
