About Mike

I am a passionate teacher and tutor of the social sciences! My main focus is in U.S. History and Western Civilization, but I also have experience with tutoring geography, government (US and Comparative), psychology and sociology. I have a degree in History and Social Sciences from Eastern Connecticut State University, and graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors with a 3.70 overall GPA. I earned a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from UConn and hold teaching licenses in both Connecticut and Massachusetts.

I have several combined years experience in tutoring and teaching. At ECSU, I completed a tutoring certification program through the College Reading and Learning Association and tutored underclassmen in history and political science. At UConn as a graduate student, I tutored student athletes in history, geography and political science. I have also taught in secondary classrooms for a year and a half. So, I am available to tutor both high school and college students.

I would love to help students with the AP US History Course as I understand how difficult it is both from taking the course myself to teaching an AP-like 10th grade class. My main emphasis would be on both content and building and practicing skills for the DBQ section. I am also available for tutoring for the AP Human Geography and US Government and Politics exams.

American History

My main coursework focus as a history major was in U.S. History. I took courses ranging from Expansion of New England, US After WWII, American Religious History and completed my seminar paper in Industrial New England. I have also taught U.S. History for 1 and 1/2 years.
