About James

I am a history teacher with deep interest and knowledge in all aspects of the subject. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in History and from Brandeis University with an M.A.T. in Secondary History. Over my career I have gained experience teaching in many different contexts, which has given me the tools and expertise to tailor my tutoring to the specific needs of individual students. I have taught ESL, writing, and math while in the Peace Corps in Kazakhstan, world history at Arlington High School, and 8th grade social studies at a middle school in Cambridge.

I specialize in tutoring American history, European history, and world history. I know that the best way to learn and engage with history is when a teacher is able to bring it alive! I particularly enjoy helping students make connections between historical content and themes and what they have already know as well as current events. Making these connections and understanding the larger picture is the foundation of improved grades, essay writing, and test scores.

I am generally available for tutoring every day in the summer from 9am to 8pm. I can travel to tutoring sessions or tutor online.

I look forward to working with you!
