I am a seventh grade social studies teacher at a middle school in Winchester, MA. I live with my girlfriend in Norwood, MA and am currently taking classes in pursuit of a master's in teaching history degree at Bridgewater State University. My two biggest passions are education and sports. I love teaching kids and helping them understand what they are learning. I get involved in a lot of activities at my school such as providing technology training for some of my colleagues and running an intramural sport in each season. I am a huge Boston sports fan, especially the Patriots.

I am looking to make a little extra money this summer by doing something that I love: teaching! With three years of teaching experience at the middle school level, I am confident that I can provide high quality tutoring. I am skilled at teaching concepts in a clear and understandable way, as well as developing respectful, trusting relationships with my students. I will be taking classes at Bridgewater State University this summer on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so I am hoping to tutor on Tuesdays and Thursdays (and possibly occasional weekends). Message me if you are interested in receiving tutoring from an enthusiastic, experienced, and certified young male teacher!

As a seventh grade social studies teacher, not only do I teach social studies, but I also teach writing. I work closely with the ELA teacher on my team to develop consistent writing instruction for our students. Two writing areas of focus in my classroom (apart from writing mechanics, grammar, etc) are summary writing and evidence-based (persuasive / argumentative writing). In regard to summary writing, students in my class summarize current events articles by picking out the main points, paraphrasing, and quoting. I also teach my students evidence-based writing, where they are presented with a controversial topic, given multiple resources with multiple viewpoints, and need to choose a position to defend using evidence directly from provided texts.

Although I am a middle school teacher, I also really enjoy working with elementary aged students. For three summers while an undergraduate at Stonehill College, I worked as an elementary special education teaching assistant. I enjoyed teaching, motivating, and learning from a variety of students with both academic and social/emotional disabilities. In addition to my experience with elementary students, my math, English, and social studies skills make me more than qualified to tutor at an elementary level.

I am a seventh grade social studies teacher with a passion for geography and American history. I current teach World Geography (which includes not only the location of places but history and current events too!) and in 2012 I student-taught U.S. History at Norton High School. Back in high school, I took A.P. U.S. history and scored a "4" on the test, earning college credit.
