About Bethanie

I have my Bachelor's Degree in Social Science with a minor in History from Azusa Pacific University. I then went on to graduate with honors with my Master's Degree from Azusa Pacific with my degree in Education. My focus within my Education degree was teaching. I also have a California State Teaching Clear Single Subject Credential in Social Science. I have been a teacher for 8 years. During that time I have taught World History, Psychology, American Government, US History, and AP US History. In college I also spent a semester in Washington DC interning at the Smithsonian Institution's education department.

I have participated in Professional Development university courses from Freedoms Foundation Valley Forge. These courses focused on the American Revolution and Civil War by allowing participants to visit the locations and study battles or people in the locations they were located in. It involves travelling all over the East Coast in an effort to gain first hand experience in the locations and topics they will teach on. Teachers who participate in these courses leave with an innovate way to share history from those time periods with their students.

One of the greatest joys of being a teacher is that moment when the material you are teaching comes alive to your students. Tutoring offers a unique opportunity for this to happen on an individual scale. This is one of the reasons I enjoy being a tutor. I have been a tutor serving both as a volunteer and paid tutor for over 10 years.

I realize that History is not everyone's favorite subject. It is often seen as boring old stuff with dates and names. I often tell my students that history is really a collection of stories about people just like us. Learning about them is just like understanding or weaving a story together. Most people like telling stories or listening to stories, and so when history is viewed this way, it makes it easier to relate to.



I look forward to hearing from you and would love to help you be successful.

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.

Bible Studies

I graduated from Azusa Pacific University, a private Christian University. Part of the graduation requirement is to take multiple Bible Courses. I took courses in Luke/Acts, Exodus/Deuteronomy, Hebrews, Survey of the Bible, Contemporary Christian Thought, Nehemiah, and others.

In addition, I teach at a Christian School where I am required to integrate Biblical teaching into the subjects I teach.
