About Victoria Barreto

I love teaching, reading, studying, and thinking about history. A lot of students struggle with history because their teacher doesn't highlight the lasting benefits of studying history and other social sciences. For instance, you can learn how to relate facts, figures, events, and people to larger ideas and themes.

I know how to teach history, and I am very knowledgeable. I graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University New Orleans, with a 3.94 GPA (only 2 Bs in four years). Then, I graduated with a perfect 4.0 GPA from graduate school, even though we had all endured Hurricane Katrina just a few semesters before.

So, if you need help with History, Social Studies, Humanities, or anything related, let me know. I can help.

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

I have taught U.S. History and African-American history for nine years in a community college setting. Included in my classes are political, economic, geographic and socioeconomic topics and activities that highlight the interplay between each of these areas of public life and society.

Additionally, I use primary and secondary sources, music, maps, photography, and journalism sources to convey material to my students. Finally, I teach students to carry out oral history projects with their neighbors and peers. I believe all of these methods and subject-matter areas in which I have experience qualify me to be a tutor in this area.
