About Connor

In May 2016, I graduated from Appalachian State University with my Master's Degree in History. I have every intention to continue my education on through the PhD level because I have a such an intense passion for History and Education. After I complete my PhD, I would like to work as an educator at the university level. During my time as a Graduate Student, I was a Teaching Assistant. My two years working as a Teaching Assistant at ASU, solidified for me the belief that a career in education was the best fit for me.

I formed close bonds with my students, and I was able to help many who struggled with more difficult abstract concepts. Even students who told me they generally were not successful in the social sciences and the humanities, were able to make immense strides under my tutelage. I had numerous cases of students improving their grade for the course two or three grade letters. I try to make the subject matter relate to their interest and passions as much as possible. If you are really struggle in your social studies courses, I believe I can help you to find success.

I have studied history for the last five years, and worked as an educator in the field for the last two. Recently, I took the social studies content exam for secondary education and scored within top 15% of test takers. That means that I am more than prepared to help you and I know the content that students are expected to know. In the past, I have been very hands on in helping my students, especially those who are struggling. Of the graduate teaching assistants, my office hours were always the most popular because of the assistance I provided. I hope to parlay that experience into providing the best service possible as a tutor.

Succeeding in History means understanding complex ideas about human society, and in order to have a solid foundation as you move forward as a student of history we will likely have to continue to work together as you find your bearings in the subject matter.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

American History

As a Teaching Assistant at Appalachian State, most of the courses I assisted with were American History or related subjects. I was able to help many students improve their grade by at least two letter grades.

Classics

I have taken many courses on the history of the Roman Empire, as well as general survey of Western History that focuses on Ancient Greece and Rome. I have taken other courses that have used the classics and primary documents for analysis. All of this, I think has prepared me to teach the subject.

Government & Politics

I actually wrote my MA thesis on the geopolitical relationship between the United States and Cuba. I have a strong understanding of the US political system as well as international politics.

Political Science

For my MA Thesis, I worked on a History of the geopolitical relations between the United States and Cuba. During the course of my research, I learned a great deal on the field of Political Science. I believe that this more than qualifies me to tutor on the subject.

Religion

While working toward my undergraduate degree, I took many courses that could help me be a successful tutor for this subject. I took a World Religions course, a History of the Middle East, and many of my Latin American History courses focused on church history.

Social Studies

On the Praxis II- Social Studies Content Exam I received a score of 186. That score puts me within the top 15% of test takers in the country. I feel that those credentials speak for themselves.
