For the past twenty nine years I taught in the NYC public school system, the last 27 years at John Dewey High School in Brooklyn. I was always rated effective and I never once received an ineffective rating on a lesson. I've done a lot of tutoring over the years, some at work prior to the Regents exams as well as private tutoring on Long Island.
Tutoring is very rewarding. It's nice to see a student progress toward mastering a subject after a relatively short time. As the father of three children, I know how to relate to young people in a way that makes learning enjoyable.
I've had years and years of tutoring experience. I know the subject material well and I'm an easy person to get along with.
Thank you for considering me as your history tutor. I'm sure you will be pleased with the results I can provide.
Sincerely, Dixon B. K.
I am very well read and I was raised by an English professor. I don't watch television, except during baseball season, I read every evening.
I have always been a history buff. My parents were intellectuals and our home was full of books as my house is now. I taught history for three decades and I always put an incredible amount of time and effort into preparing my lessons. I am a very enthusiastic teacher, never one to just go through the paces. You can look at Rate My Teacher on the Internet and view student comments about me if you'd like! I'm always reading nonfiction books because I always want to increase my knowledge.
January Regents exams are coming soon. American history / Global history are my absolute specialities. If you want to do well, please contact me.

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.
I am most qualified to tutor in American History and in Global History. I taught these subjects from 1986 through 2015 on a full time basis. I also have extensive experience tutoring students in these subjects.
I can also tutor students in reading as well as other subjects such as psychology and sociology.
