Bio

I have always had a great appreciation for history. While at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I majored in history. Following my graduation I took a job at the Christian Science Monitor in Boston, because as I see it, tomorrow’s historians will read what today’s journalists have written.

I have always had a great appreciation for history. While at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, I majored in history. Following my graduation I took a job at the Christian Science Monitor in Boston, because as I see it, tomorrow’s historians will read what today’s journalists have written. While at the Christian Science Monitor I served as a syndication specialists, which required that I have an intimate knowledge of current events. After I was laid-off from the newspaper in 2009, I immediately enrolled at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, to continue my education in history. I wrote my master’s thesis on King Philip’s War (1675-76) and as an American Indian Historian, I applied to the PhD program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where I could continue my studies under Dr. William Bauer. In addition, as a Graduate Assistant at UNLV, I led discussion sections, where my expansive knowledge of world and US history as well as current events permitted me to answer students’ questions of historical events and increase their understanding of the past by comparing them to present issues. I am currently working at Chelsea High School as an English tutor, were I am preparing students for their MCAS exams.

My educational and professional career make me an excellent tutor and I look forward to helping students gain a greater understanding of history.

Over my academic career I have studied and or taught a multitude of historic eras and events.
