About Ed

My passion for History began at a young age. Ironically, my hometown of Union, N.J. was the site of a Revolutionary War battle (Battle of Connecticut Farms June 1780). Even though I had a career in the technical industry, History always held my interest.

This included reading an abundance of books, visiting Historical sites etc. At one point I decided to study History, earn a degree and one day teach. Not surprisingly, the first class I took was United States History 1. It was unlike any previous class I had taken. The professor was quite challenging in that he emphasized the why, how and cause and effect in covering the material, not just names, dates and places. Those methods enabled me to fully understand the material . I completed my education while maintaining a full time job, a family and graduated with honors from Thomas Edison State College.

I am a certified teacher with certifications in Social Studies K-12 Studies and Social Studies 5-8. This includes History, Social Sciences and Civics. I am also certified in Elementary Education. I currently substitute in two districts and includes long term stints. I have taught Religious Education and am receptive to tutoring in that subject as well. My method is the same as how I was taught. My belief is that students will comprehend and grasp the material if they understand the hows and whys along with the names, places and such. Moreover, I think they will find History more interesting. In regards to homework, I understand students ( and parents) have very busy lifestyles . Given this, I would prefer to supplement notes and study guides to assist them as needed as well as discussing the material.That , I believe, will help the students
