About Francis

I have substitute taught all grades from pre-K through 12th, and have taught history and science as a teacher's aide in 3rd grade. I have a passion for learning, and my favorite moments as a substitute teacher have been when a student that had been struggling finally understood what they had been having a tough time grasping.

I started out wanting to teach high school history, however, my time substitute teaching made me realize that I would never get the chance to work one on one with students to ensure that they all thoroughly understood the material I was trying to communicate as a full-time classroom teacher. Additionally, I had many problems trying to maintain discipline among students who didn't respect authority.

I was a sportswriter for the student newspaper for two years, and was the sports editor for my senior year of undergrad.

In undergrad I double majored in History and Political Science. For my History major I focused on European, though I also took several American History courses. Although the only time I had Geography was in high school, I made a 100 average in that course.

My MA is in World Politics, which is a combination of International Relations and Comparative Politics. My focus in graduate school was primarily on the Middle East and East Asia. I also took courses in Psychology and Sociology in undergrad and passed them. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

European History

History with a focus on Europe was one of my majors (I double majored) in undergrad. Specifically I focused on the 19th and 20th Centuries.

Political Science

Political Science was one of my majors in undergrad (along with History), and I received my Master's in the sub-field of World Politics, which is a combination of International Relations and Comparative Politics. Although I am somewhat weak in quantitative work, I have an extensive background in qualitative work, including methodology. Along with history, political science is the field I am most comfortable lesson planning.

Social Studies

I have taught 3rd grade social studies, and substitute taught every other level. I have done coursework in either undergrad or graduate school in every major field in Social Studies: History, Political Science, Geography, Sociology, and Psychology. It is the general subject which I enjoy the most, and love to teach.
