I am a recent graduate from the University of Pennsylvania and I have always loved history. I received top scores on my AP history exams in high school and wrote an honors history thesis and graduated summa cum laude with a major in History and a minor in Political Science from Penn.

Beyond my personal academic success with history, I have loved teaching other students to enjoy and succeed with their studies. My first teaching experience was in rural Ghana. The summer after my sophomore year of college, I spent three months teaching, among other subjects, world history to thirty high school students. This experience made me realize how much I love teaching and sharing my love of history in the classroom. Since then, I have tutored other high school students studying for their AP exams and I have also volunteered as a writing mentor to middle school students writing their high school entrance essays. History has long been a passion of mine and I love tutoring because it provides me with the opportunity to turn a student's frustration with the subject into realization of their skills and, hopefully, enjoyment in learning.

I am an outstanding tutor for American History, European History, Government and Politics, Political Science, and World History because of my academic success with all of the subjects as well as my experiences teaching and tutoring a variety of students. As mentioned above, I received 5's on my AP American History Exam and AP European History Exam (my high school did not offer AP World History or AP Government). In college, I majored in American History and minored in Political Science and graduated with the highest honors and above a 3.8 GPA. I taught world history to thirty high school students for three months in rural Ghana and I have experience tutoring high school students studying for their AP exams, as well as mentoring middle school students writing high school entrance essays.

I am excited to share my passion for learning and teaching history with you! I have experience teaching many different types of learners and I am very appreciative of the need to tailor tutoring strategies to specific student learning styles. I look forward to hearing from you!
