Ohio University (History)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Enrolled)
I'm a Ph.D. student in American History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before coming to Carolina, I completed a B.A. in History at the Honors Tutorial College of Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Prior to that, I served as an assault team leader in the U.S. Army infantry for four years in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Having trained foreign-national soldiers using limited language abilities to engage in high-intensity combat operations, I've so far found teaching history to undergraduate students much more relaxing and -- frankly, rewarding. There is very little I am more passionate about than helping others understand their past, succeed in their academic pursuits, and expand their awareness and understanding of the world around them. Also, it is deeply important to me that students develop the ability to convey their thoughts with the utmost clarity and precision.
My doctoral work focuses on 19th Century American History, but I am more than comfortable helping with any undergraduate-level U.S. History course, or with research, writing, or editing undergraduate-level papers in almost any humanities discipline (history, english, sociology, anthropology, etc.). Help with test preparation and general study tips I'm also happy to provide.
As a historian, academic research, writing, and editing comprise the bulk of my daily professional life. I value opportunities to help others hone their writing, watch their grades improve, and enhance their ability to clearly express their thoughts in words. I have proof-read and edited far too many research papers through the years to count.
My doctoral research focuses on mid-Nineteenth Century America, but as a Ph.D. student I am required to maintain a high-level of competence in early American History, Nineteenth Century American History, and Modern American History. Beyond this, I am also capable of tutoring military and world history topics.
One advantage of working as a Ph.D. student in history is the flexibility of my schedule. I can be available for tutoring at times that will work with your schedule, and I'm happy to meet wherever you're most comfortable. I look forward to working together soon!

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.
