St. Lawrence University (History)
Teacher's College Columbia University (Enrolled)
I am a graduate student in the History and Education program at Teacher's College, Columbia University. I graduated with Honors in History from St. Lawrence University and am eager to share and demonstrate my passion for history, writing, and reading with students. While at TC, I hope to associate teach and tutor to gain further instructing experience. I am new to WyzAnt but in the past I have assistant taught, worked as a counselor and conversation partner, and led history-related programs for students.
I specialize in History, writing, and reading. As a tutor I hope to lead lessons conversationally based, allowing students to explain their thoughts on topics in order to build on ideas. I am prepared to challenge and ensure my students are keeping up with their homework and taking time to consider various aspects of a time period or event. I think History should be one of the more entertaining topics to learn about and I find it easier for students to appreciate a topic if they are able to connect with a person or event being discussed. By allowing students to have some freedom in exploring a historical topic on their own and finding an interest, it may draw them in to gain a more complete understanding of the significance of the topic.
Most importantly, I consider myself to be a tutor who is easy to approach. I am honest, considerate, and understanding of my students as well as parents. I will never bill a parent who is not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

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.
