About Brenna

I'm a recent master's recipient who loves talking about history. My main interest is in European History - specifically, veteran's affairs during and after World War I - although I'd be happy to discuss any historical subject. I've always felt that the most important part of history is sharing it with others, and I'm so excited to get an opportunity to tutor.

While I was earning my master's degree, I worked as a teaching assistant for a year. My job was to get to know students, teach them critical thinking, note-taking, and reading skills, and go over papers with them. I personally love writing and think it's very important to help students learn how to write with ease, so if writing is tough, I would love to help out with that.

My favorite thing about education is discussing ideas with students and helping them to form their own ideas about the course material. I like to help students realize that history isn't just in the past, but that it's still alive; it's a story that you can become a part of, if you learn enough.

Although my graduate degree is in Modern European History, I have experience in everything from World History to Political Science. I've TA'd for both the first and second halves of Western Civ, and tutored students in critical thinking, discussion, and writing skills during that time. Graduate school has equipped me with knowledge of historical pedagogy and methods, and I'm prepared to translate those skills for others. I was also a political science minor as an undergrad, so I'm well-versed in civics and politics, if need be.

I have a lot of enthusiasm for education and plan on going on to get my PhD in European History, and tutoring is an important element of education. I hope that I can help you with your tutoring needs.
