About Geoffrey

I have taught high school history for ten years including Advanced Placement US History and Government. I have also had great success tutoring math to students in grades 5-10. I am a federally designated Highly Qualified state-certified history teacher living in southwest Florida. I hold a BA in History from the University of Connecticut and a MA in Public Policy from Trinity College in Hartford, CT.

My strategy is to use the actual textbook from school for the curriculum and work patiently with each student correcting any mistakes made and also building their confidence to do what is expected of them. Homework strategies are also emphasized. Parents are briefed after each session.

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.
