I am currently a teacher at a local high school in the Social Studies Department. I have taught full-time there for eleven years. I have taught a range of history courses including US History I (1500-1870), US History II (1870- present), World History II (1750- present). My focus is on government, politics, and law.

I am the teacher-coach for the Mock Trial program sponsored by the Massachusetts Bar Association.

This goal is achieved first through a mastery of the fundamentals and then building on that foundation to become comfortable with abstract and higher order thinking.

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.
