Hello students! So Social Studies isn't your deal. Well, it doesn't matter if you are a college undergrad, high school or middle school student. We can work together to get you a better grade while improving your study habits, test taking and writing skills. After teaching for 28 years I can help you figure out any History, Geography, or Economics course. You just have to know what to look for. Having trouble with tests? The answers are easier to find than you think and sometimes are right in front of you. If those short answer or essay questions get you down, let this published author show you a few easy tricks for good writing. Come to think of it, the skills you learn will help you in other classes, too.

Parents, your student will get an experienced Social Studies tutor who has taught American History, World History, Geography, Government, Economics, and Advanced Placement (AP) European History. I have even pinch hit in French and English classes. References from both Texas and Missouri educators can be provided. I can present proof of passing background checks from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. Rest assured that your youngster will be getting a hard working tutor and a student at a basic learning level is just as welcome as an AP student.

Reading

Reading

I have taught reading comprehension to students in remedial History classes. Reading comprehension of test questions is vital to passing the European History AP test. I have made sure my AP students have plenty of practice in this area.

History

American History,

American History

American History is more than just dates and dead people. I will help the student grasp the why and how of historical events and to see the impact these events have on the United States.
European History,

European History

I am a College Board certified Advanced Placement (AP) European History teacher. Students are given college credit for passing the AP test in May. Over a 10 year period my students had a passing rate of 88% on the AP European History. This is 20 points higher than the worldwide average passing rate of 68%.
Geography,

Geography

The key to passing is understanding the Five Themes of Geography: Place, Location, Human Environment Interaction, Movement, and Region. I will work with your student using maps, visual organizers, and graphs to help with the themes.
Government & Politics,

Government & Politics

Government is a course that covers a lot of detailed information. A student must understand how American government is set up, and then see how politics makes it work. A compare and contrast with other systems of government and countries that share our democratic ideas is also needed. As with any course we also focus on what the classroom instructor thinks is important.
Religion,

Religion

I have taught the basic concepts of the world's major religions in both my World History and Geography classes. The impact of Christianity on Western culture and politics is a major topic in Advanced Placement European History, which I have also taught. My personal education includes 10 years in parochial schools and a deep interest in the study of comparative religions.
Social Studies,

Social Studies

I am certified in the states of Missouri and Texas to teach middle school and high school Social Studies classes. This includes American History, World History, European History, State History, Geography, Government, and Economics. I also have a certification from the the College Board to teach Advanced Placement (AP) European History. I have taught all the subjects listed above during my teaching career.
World History

World History

World History is a big subject. Probably the best way for a student to handle such a large amount of information is to understand how to use their text book. The review questions at the end of each chapter and unit are steady guides. However the maps, charts and graphs, art, pictures and captions are frequently ignored by students, and this is not good. I will work to make sure the whole book is used.

Very Knowledgable

Roger is a great asset. My daughter enjoyed a session with him. We will certainly try working with Roger again in the future. He seems to be good at not only in social studies, but also in humanities as well.
