About JJ

Hi! My name is JJ Harkema and I am an experienced tutor in World, American and European History.

My background is a Master's degree in History and a Master's degree in Public Management. Recently I completed a certificate degree at Georgetown School of Continuing studies.

About 3 years ago I moved from my home country the Netherlands to Washington DC. Since 2008 I have tutored high school students and helped them prepare for history tests and exams.

During my Master's in History my focus was on American History, Classics and European History. I have successfully helped students pass tests in these subjects, as well as in Government & Politics and World History.

My tutoring style can be described as conversational. I try to listen carefully to what the student identifies as areas he/she struggles with or are unclear. Then I use that information to set up a conversation with the student in order to address those areas. This way I take the student on a journey that leads to increased comprehension and hopefully as much passion for the subject as I have!

Please contact me for weeknight or weekend History tutoring in the Washington DC area.

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.

An excellent tutor.

JJ helped me with the grammatical skills that I needed to improve on and taught me new vocabulary. We mostly worked on speaking conversations which was something I had not previously had many chances to do and therefor very helpful.
