About Clarence

I believe that I would be an excellent tutor in areas such as American history, world history, political science, and social studies, because I thrive on academics, knowledge and teaching. I am currently a graduate student at Pace University, studying for a Master of Science degree in Adolescent Education (grades 7-12). I have also worked several hours as an assistant teacher at Sleepy Hollow High School. Before that, I was a Dean's List student at Concordia College, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Sciences with an emphasis on history. I was known by my professors for my skills in writing, and was nominated for the Writing Across the Curriculum Award.

My program at Concordia also exposed me to several courses in psychology and sociology, courses which cover communications with people. Furthermore, my current graduate teaching program at Pace focuses heavily on the exact type of skills that are necessary for being a tutor, such as communication, making lesson plans, and having breakthroughs with students of diverse backgrounds. If employed as a tutor, I will treat my job with the highest standards and professionalism possible.


I believe that what makes me an outstanding history tutor is the fact that I am so personally devoted to the subject. It is the reason why I was a history major at Concordia, and it is the reason why I am currently seeking a Master of Science in Adolescent Education at Pace University. For me, studying history is not a chore, it is a source of enjoyment. I have over 100 hours of history lectures on my iPod. I study history and social studies topics simply for fun. I am also a member of political organizations. I am a member of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, and I am President of the Young Americans for Liberty chapter at Pace University. Both of these organizations seek to educate people on the United States Constitution, the founding fathers, and economics.

The reason why I love history so much is because I enjoy listening to the different schools of thought regarding historiography. Some of my favorite historians include Ralph Raico, Thomas Woods, Kevin Gutzman, Brion McClanahan and Paul Johnson. I admire people who are contrarians, people who question, and people who actually analyze history with thought and care. What I believe history is all about is having discussions, about historical events and historical figures. If you make history only about memorizing names and dates, students will hate history. Rather than give historical figures piety, people should actually analyze historical figures. I believe that I will make a good social studies tutor, because this is what I will do with my students.

My hours are very flexible. During the summer, I can work anytime and any day. My hours are a little bit less flexible in the fall and winter, because I have my classes at Pace, likely in the evenings.
