George Washington University (History)
New York University (Master's)
After completing a history degree and a Master's degree I have spent 20 years working in museums with artifacts, talking to visitors and curating exhibits. I previously worked in a New York City middle school as well. Through this work I have regularly taught children and adults of all ages about historical events and art. I led and wrote educational programs for students ranging in age from 5 to 16 years old. In working with school groups I have learned many ways to break things down and make history entertaining and memorable. By looking at the connections and emotions behind events they are easier to remember, easier to connect which will increase the knowledge and help raise grades.
Outside of museum work I have been an avid researcher and reader of history from around the world. I lived in Russia and have traveled throughout Eastern and Western Europe as well as traveling to Thailand and the Caribbean. I excel at breaking down the important details and narratives of history to break away from typical memorization methods of teaching. I prefer to relate events to each other, show the stories, the connections, and the humanity behind events and people. I can work within the curriculum given by teachers to flesh out the lectures given in class and help with reading comprehension and memorization.

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.
