About Truby

I am a professional historian, writer and editor for a publication that covers Italy and European history. I have majored in both history and art in college and post college courses. Besides tutoring you on history and art, I can also tutor you on writing skills and techniques. I know well the art of written communication and can help you in all aspects of professional writing. My writing career and professional experience has put me in contact with scholars and historians throughout Europe and America. As a result, I have extensive hands-on experience in addition to the full academic grasp of important historical books and manuscripts about American and European history and art. My work experience consists of writing and editing extensive articles about ancient Rome, the Middle Ages in Italy, the founding and growth of Roman Catholicism, the Renaissance and Baroque eras, the Napoleonic years, Italy's Risorgimento, and modern era, major social and political movements such as Futurism, Anarchism, Communism, and Fascism; World Wars I and II, the Cold War, the rise of the European Union and today's crises of debt and economic stagnation. History is the story of many cultures tied together and thus my focus is on the varied reasons why historical events happened based on the interactions of cultures; an approach that will help my students tremendously. Each period of history is no less fascinating than the period that precedes or follows it. I will make American and European history fully understandable in an enjoyable way that will peek a student’s interest and help him or succeed in all course exams and papers.
