About Michael

My name is Mike, and I have been a certified teacher of grade 7-12 social studies in New Jersey and Pennsylvania since May 2010. I have five years' experience in a private school teaching World and American History and I also have experience teaching American government and ESL as well. I am also in the process of pursuing my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I find the best things about teaching are to educate students not just to pass a test, but also to make them critically think and analyze the material in front of them. The same approach that I take in my classroom is the approach that I will take while tutoring.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

American History

I have had four years of teaching American History I and II both at the college prep and honors levels I am state certified in two states for high school social studies. I took AP American History in high school and completed 9 additional credits in American History as part of post-baccalaureate teaching degree.

COOP/HSPT

Being a long-time student and now a teacher in private school, I have had a lot of experience with the COOP exam. I am relatively knowledgeable in terms of what the exam will be looking for and what students ought to be focusing on most.

Criminal Justice

I was a criminal justice minor in undergraduate and took 6-7 CJ courses. In most of these courses, I earned between a B+ and an A. I have a broad, general knowledge of the type of information needed to do well in criminal justice courses.

Praxis

I am qualified in the Praxis social studies subject area because I passed my Praxis I and Praxis II exams both on the first attempt. I have a broad knowledge of the information offered on these exams.

SAT Writing

As part of my job as a history teacher, our school ensures that essay writing and building are key parts of our curriculum. Therefore, I am trained not just in teaching social studies material but also in helping my students become better writers and thinkers, therefore I believe I am also qualified to assist students in SAT writing.

Social Studies

I am qualified to tutor this specific subject area because I have certification to teach social studies from two different states. I have also taught a variety of courses under this domain and have more than five total years' experience in various social studies courses.

World History

I taught four years of high school World History. I have helped to restructure the current World History course at my school. I have spent numerous hours reading and researching various areas in our World course.
