About Herbert

I am considered an innovative social studies teacher who uses students' names humorously in all anecdotes, concepts and situations I'm teaching. I use games and other fun methods to drill or reinforce material before an exam.

In my 20 years of teaching social studies, I have won numerous teaching awards for my teaching methodology from former students and administrators. I teach all areas of social studies, but my most recent emphasis the last seven years has been American History, Government/Criminal Law, Economics, and Latin American History.

As a high school teacher, I started my own law program and law library, seeking nationally-renowned guest speakers and going on field trips that will allow students to augment their hands-on teaching.

Further, I frequently employ my former skills as an editor and investigative reporter to enhance hands-on skills students must use in the social studies field.

I am available to teach and thoroughly efficient in the following subjects:
ALGEBRA I, AMERICAN HISTORY, ECOLOGY, ECONOMICS, ELEMENTARY SCIENCE, ENGLISH, EUROPEAN HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY, GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS, GRAMMAR, LAW, LITERATURE, PROOFREADING, READING, SAT READING, SAT WRITING, SPELLING, VOCABULARY, WORLD HISTORY, AND WRITING!

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.
