Hunter College (HISTORY)
Hunter College (Master's)
To say that I love History would be an understatement. I enjoy not only the research but the teaching of the subject. I believe that History not only involves learning about the past but also can tell us about the future. I can offer Tutoring help in American, European and World History.
I have a Master's degree in Adolescent Education along with a Bachelor's Degree in History. I also possess Initial certification from the New York State Board of Education and have passed all certification tests in the field. In addition I have experience in tutoring in New York City Public schools as well as some time in Charter schools. In addition I have a deep love of History and I believe that enthusiasm carries over into the lessons.
I would characterize my tutoring style as flexible. I try to make it easier for students to understand difficult concepts, especially with the mountain of data students must navigate through, and I try to encourage the student not to become frustrated with the material. The student should understand that flexible does not mean easy. The student will be given assignments to do that will help them become ready to take the regents exams as well as other writing based exams. In addition the student will always be encouraged to ask questions especially when they are not sure of an answer. The lessons will be clearly defined so the student understand what is expected of the student and myself.
I try to be understanding and flexible with the schedule so I request a minimum of 3 hours before any appointment is cancelled and I will always do my best to keep my appointments and if I am unable to I will give the student at least a 1 day notice.

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.
