About Walton

I am currently an online instructor with over 20 years face-to-face experience at a local junior college. I also have over 16 years experience in 3 local Louisiana school systems. I specialize in American and World History. I enjoy creating critical thinking questions that students respond to in writing.

I love tutoring because (1) I love watching the light go on in a student's mind when they really understand something for the first time. (2) I miss face-to-face interaction with students, because that's how I was initially trained. I use the traditional narrative method combined with the latest learning technology to ensure a quality learning experience for all types of students.

I am thoroughly versed in my content and I care about my students. I have had more than one students take my courses while they are either struggling with History or do not enjoy it. When they finish with me, they take other courses that I teach because they are hungry for more history. That's what the essence of teaching history is all about!

If you are in need of a quality background in History and are interested in learning more, please contact me so that your exciting journey into the past can begin. You'll enjoy it, and you'll be able to build a better future with the skills that you will learn.

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.

English

I have passed all of the Wyzant English requirements in grammar and composition. I have also written two as yet unpublished manuscripts. One is a book of personal stories. The other is a concise overview of the American Civil War. I would be happy to submit samples to Wyzant for their consideration if this is necessary or required.

World History

I have taught World History for 13 years on the high school level and over 20 years on the college level, so I believe that I can dramatically increase your chances of success in honing whatever World History skills you need to acquire or increase.
