Eastern Connecticut State University (2009) (History)

Hi. My name is Tyler B. I am an aspiring school teacher looking to connect with students across a wide age-group. I have an undergraduate degree in history from Eastern Connecticut State University, and a master's degree in education from the University of Connecticut. For the past seven years, I have worked as an educator in multiple capacities, including substitute teaching, full-time teaching, and coaching athletics.
My greatest passion is connecting with students to develop a love for learning, particularly in areas with which they may struggle. I believe everyone can succeed; many of us just need someone to show us the way. I like to think that my students will continue to gain an appreciation for knowledge even after our time together is through.
I have experience in various forms of writing, particularly argumentative pieces featuring an original thesis. I am familiar with various formats, including MLA, APA, and Chicago style. Additionally, as an avid reader I am well-acquainted with many of the classic texts which might be found in a high-school or college literature course.
As part of my undergraduate degree in History at Eastern Connecticut State University, I completed various courses in medieval and early modern European history, philosophy, and economics. These history courses always incorporated a strong writing element, culminating in my senior thesis on public opinion surrounding the creation of the Bank of England in 1609. I have large experience working with primary sources, including microfilm and microfiche archives.
I am confident that I can be of service to a wide range of clients. Whether you are the parent of a young student who may be struggling, or a college senior working on a capstone project, I can assist you. I offer a flexible weekend schedule 8 A.M. to 8 P.M. Weekday meetings can be discussed. I look forward to hearing from you and getting started on achieving all of your goals! Hi. My name is Tyler B.

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.
As a classroom teacher I specialized in American history at the Batchelder School, of Hartford Connecticut. Chronologically, my course covered material from indigenous peoples of the Americas to the Civil War. Because many of my students had a very limited understanding of our nation's history, and often struggled with literacy, I developed my own style to use visual imagery and other media in combination with text to best illustrate events. Some topics I have experience teaching include:
-The Spanish conquest of the New World
-The Columbian Exchange
-Development of the thirteen English colonies
-Growth of republican institutions in colonial America
-The Revolutionary War
- Constitution of the United States
-Sectionalism and the Divide Between North and South
-Slavery, the Plantation Economy, and the Abolitionist movement
-The Civil War
Currently Reading: "These United States" Gilmore and Sugrue (2015).
As an undergraduate student at Eastern Connecticut State University, I focused on early modern European History in preparation for a possible P.h.D candidature. The following is a sample of my course selection:
-Early Modern Warfare
-Old Regime Europe
-The French Revolution
-England under the Stuart Dynasty
