Hello! I am a tutor available for social studies topics, including US and world history, economics, geography, government and politics, and related subjects.

My tutoring style adapts to each student I am working with, recognizing that each student has individual needs and situations. Not only will we work on specific subject matter, but building study habits to better facilitate future learning. I am also a sports coach and goal driven. We will set goals and work to achieve those goals systematically. I am a believer in catching my athletes and students doing things right. It is my philosophy that making this a priority helps build the desire to achieve more of the same.

Over the past 20 years, I have been a coach for a variety of sports and a scout leader while working in the private industry in sales and international business. I decided in late 2008 to return to school to get a teaching degree and graduated from Western Michigan University in December of 2011 with a BA in Secondary Education/Social Studies. While there, I was admitted for membership in the Phi Alpha Theta History Honors Society and nominated for membership in Kappa Delta Pi Education Honors Society. Both of these honors were for academic excellence in these subject areas.

I have been a substitute teacher for several years and have also worked as a cognitive skills trainer with elementary through high school age students. I am currently employed through Lincoln Public Schools.

I look forward to working with you to meet your individual tutoring needs.
