About Francis


Bio

I am a semi-retired professional with many years experience in K-12 tutoring in such subjects as English (all grades), Writing (all grades); Math (K-5), History and Social Science (all grades), and SAT/ACT Prep. I have a particular passion for History and Social Science, since my Bachelor's degree is in History, and my Master's is in International Administration. I was fortunate enough to spend many years living outside of this country east and southern Africa), and I believe that gives me...

I am a semi-retired professional with many years experience in K-12 tutoring in such subjects as English (all grades), Writing (all grades); Math (K-5), History and Social Science (all grades), and SAT/ACT Prep. I have a particular passion for History and Social Science, since my Bachelor's degree is in History, and my Master's is in International Administration. I was fortunate enough to spend many years living outside of this country east and southern Africa), and I believe that gives me a special perspective not only on this country, but on some of the other countries in the world as well.

I greatly enjoy interacting with students of all ages, and it has been my experience that they enjoy working with me as well. I believe listening is an absolutely crucial skill, and I attempt to utilize it to the fullest, and I expect my students to to the same. Tutoring is one of my great joys and I hope we get to enjoy it together.

History

American History,

American History

I graduated from Grinnell College with a BA in History. My senior thesis pertained to a particular time period in US history, and many of my courses did the same.
Political Science,

Political Science

I took numerous undergraduate and graduate courses in political science and having a full understanding of the subject was a pre-requisite when I was a legislative analyst and editor with The Washington Post. I have also tutored many elementary and high school students to improve their understanding of political science. In sum, I would state that my educational and professional experience has given me a very strong understanding of political science, and I would not have any issues tutoring any student in this subject.
Social Studies,

Social Studies

I excelled in social studies in high school, and received my B.A. in History from Grinnell College. In addition, I have tutored numerous elementary and high school students in social studies. Finally, I taught U.S., European and African History when I was a teacher in a Kenyan Harambee school in the mid-1980's. Given all this experience, I believe I am very qualified to tutor any student in social science.
