I have completed both a bachelor's degree and master's degree in the study of history. My focus as an undergraduate dealt with American and European history, with emphasis given 20th century conflicts. My undergraduate thesis, which dealt with American foreign relations with Spain between the years of the Spanish Civil War, won an award and was also published within a university publication. My master's degree dealt more so with European political and economic history. My dissertation for my master's dealt with constructions of personal identity among the Irish volunteers for Francisco Franco during the Spanish Civil War. The research involved was immense, and even took me to archives and collections housed in Dublin and Limerick, Ireland. While at graduate school I took courses in: research and methodology, 19th century Irish political history, economic and social theories and their historical applications, modern British political history, architectural history, and constructions of identity.

I have previously taught American culture and English language courses at Southwest University of Political Science and Law in Chongqing, China, and am TESL (Teach English as a Second Language) certified.

I can help guide students in interpreting and analyzing historical events and contexts, and also understanding larger picture issues which were driving forces or catalysts to such events. My expertise, however, is in research and writing, especially works which deal with complex issues. I can give detailed advice on sources (how and what should be used), proofread essays for effectiveness of the argument and structure, and assist in the creation of a proper research plan.
