About Amber

My name is Amber and I have a real passion for history and learning. I have a BA in History and Sociology. I graduated as an undergrad with honors. One of the most exciting things about my story is I received my MA in History at Bangor University while in Wales. I'm very passionate about this subject and like to incorporate that element in my teaching approach. I have tutored students from Elementary through High school. I like challenging students to explore ways that help them learn best. I love assisting and challenging students to expand their minds. I think a very important element to tutoring is incorporating passion into teaching. I take the time to find out how students learn best and incorporate their learning style into my approach. I’m a great listener and responsive to student’s needs.

Most of my focus has been on European History and Western Civilization. My specific interest during College was in Early Modern British Culture and Medieval Studies. I have tutored students in various periods of American History with a focus on the Constitution. I also tutored students in Middle School Social Studies and the Humanities


Learning should never be boring.

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.

Social Studies

As a history major this is a considerable part of Social studies. I have taken several classes in Philosophy, Geography, Anthropology and Sociology. I have a minor in Sociology and this has helped me to see the intersectionality of these areas. I have tutor students in Social Studies from Geography to History.

Study Skills

I designed manageable schedules for several students I tutored. This schedule was based on their interests, learning styles and patterns. I'm also very familiar with Microsoft Outlook and teach students the basics of this program. In grad school I took several classes in Microsoft Office. Outlook is an essential program to help students stay on track with their homework and personal lives. I encourage students to use the calendar function in Outlook to assign tasks. Using different programs and apps can assist student with prioritizing tasks while simultaneously teaching them skills they can utilize in future endeavors. I also have certificate in Record Management.
