About Elizabeth

With seven years' worth of undergraduate and graduate level history training, two Masters degrees, and five semesters' worth of experience teaching history to undergraduate students, I can help your student understand any era of history, and write on the level which their college professors will expect of them.

I taught American History, East Asian History, and Religious Studies at the university level. As a Graduate Teaching Assistant, I worked extensively with my students to improve their critical thinking, reading comprehension, and writing skills.

Whether your student is struggling with high school coursework, or wants to go that extra mile to ensure that they will succeed in a college setting, I will customize my tutoring to assure that your students meets their goals.

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.

Bible Studies

I spent my undergraduate career studying the field colloquially known as "Biblical Scholarship." This is an interdisciplinary field combining geography, archaeology, Assyriology, Egyptology, literary criticism, and textual analysis. I specialize in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. I also taught a Religious Studies course.

Religion

I taught religious studies to undergraduate students at the University of Maryland. This included material on Judaism, Islam, Christianity, indigenous faiths, Buddhism, Hinduism, and the philosophy of atheism. It also included the study of Geertz, Durkheim, Eliade, and Diana Eck. Further, I have a Master's degree in Modern Jewish history.

Social Studies

My three years of graduate level work included not only historical training, but training in philosophy, political theory, gender theory, race theory, and post-colonial theory. My time teaching American History, East Asian History, Religious Studies, and my seven years studying Jewish history have familiarized me well with all the different frameworks we may use to analyze the past and present.
