Delta State University (Social Studies)
When I entered into college, I was genuinely lost about what career I would choose. I bounced around from concentration to concentration until I enrolled in the History of Mexico undergraduate class. I don't know if it was the subject or the professor, but I began a love affair with History that has not ended. Of course once I earned that History degree what would I do with it? Law School was an option, continuing with a graduate degree was another, or perhaps entering the field of secondary education? On the advice of a classmate I tried my hand at middle school history. I loved it.
I have been teaching for 17 years uninterrupted. I have taught EVERY social studies/history class a teacher could teach. I find that joy of seeing a student understanding a concept almost irreplaceable. When a kid you've taught acknowledges the lesson that you taught them in another class it makes you swell with pride. I guess that's why I do what I do, having an opportunity to touch someone or instill in them the love of history or at the very least the like of history that I have.
I am a Civil War buff and have recently began to study the History of Rome, the American Revolution, and World War I. I am knowledgeable in all the major history subjects and will never leave my student feeling shortchanged. I wish there was a service like this when I was starting; it could have provided me an opportunity to learn even more, whether its in content or teaching methods. I am flexible with time and definitely comfortable in either one on one or in front of a group. I want to give back in another fashion and I hope you take the chance to allow me to tutor you. Looking forward to this newest challenge. When I entered into college, I was genuinely lost about what career I would choose.

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.
The majority of my college hours were political science credits. I have taught US government for the last seven years.
