About Paul

I have a Bachelor's in History from Idaho State University. History (along with Political Science) is very important to learn so we can be better citizens. I believe in helping the student work towards finding the needed answers instead of giving the students the answers. Working one-on-one with a student is how I like to tutor because it gives me the chance to ensure the student's needs are being met. I also have a Master's in Criminal Justice. I chose this field because it closely corresponds to History. Many lessons I learned in these courses has also helped me become better in understanding History -- as I use this knowledge and apply it to how I tutor my students.

Learning from our past is important so we can know how to be prepared for the future. When I tutor, I make sure to include lessons from the past to help student understand current events. I also can tutor students from middle school up through college. I have been tutoring in Social Studies since Aug 2013. Tutoring one-on-one ensures the student and I are not distracted -- as too many distractions can limit how the student and tutor can work with each other.

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.

American History

I have a Bachelor's Degree in History from Idaho State University; obtaining it in 2001.
While obtaining my Bachelor's, I took different courses on American History (for example, two US History courses and one on the American West).
As History deals with dates and places, I have found that using some sort of visual aide (like an online source) helps the student learn more efficiently.
I have been tutoring in American History for a little over a year.

Criminal Justice

I have a Master's in Criminal Justice from the University of Phoenix. I tutor the student on the importance in learning from the past to understand criminal behavior.

Religion

While attending high school I took 4 years of religious instruction and graduated with a certificate of completion.
While attending undergraduate college, I took religious instructions in various religious subjects; having received a graduation diploma. (The college and the place of religious instruction are operated by different entities.)
I also received 2 advanced certificates for completing additional courses beyond the original graduation requirements while attending the undergraduate college. (The college and the place of religious instruction are operated by different entities.)
When it comes to tutoring this subject, I would find common ground of different ideas to reach understanding of why the study of religion is important.

World History

I received a Bachelor's Degree in History from Idaho State University.
As part of my undergraduate studies, I took several history courses dealing with different world events and locations.
I have previously tutored in World History, and have found that working one on one best serves the student's needs.
I have also found that having visual aides (like online sources with pictures) helps the student understand the topic better.
