University of Pittsburgh (History)
University of Akron (Master's)
I was previously employed as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Akron (I finished my Master's coursework, thus ending my assistantship), helping students with writing and general course material through one on one discussion and through email correspondence. I gave a guest lecture as well as led my own independent discussion section to go beyond class material. I have also worked one on one to teach English to members of my temple community. Other than my previous teaching experience, I am a hard worker that is passionate about teaching and helping others succeed.
I feel that teaching is my calling, as helping others grasp material or see a change in thinking once someone "gets it" truly bring me joy like no other profession. I am an excellent communicator and writer would love to help anyone with difficulty in history, language arts, reading, writing, or even general counseling about education in general.
I am an excellent writer and wrote weekly papers of high quality with good analysis for my history coursework while working on my Master's degree. I love writing and wish to have everyone not only be a good writer, but enjoy writing as much as I do. I am a highly proficient reader, as I have always loved to read both history books and fiction for fun. Whether it be picking out key details or "getting the gist" of the book, I can help anyone with difficulty reading and understanding. Working toward my master's, I often had to read 2-4 books per week, necessitating different reading strategies to keep up with the coursework.
Just as I enjoy expressing myself and my thoughts through writing, I am equally passionate about history and political science. I believe that these subjects offer valuable lessons to understand and live by today rather than simply a set of dates to memorize before taking a test. Tracking historical change, individual decisions resulting in dramatic turns in historical events are simply just fun to me and it is my goal to demonstrate both the importance of history and political science in the present day as well as making them fun for those I am teaching while simultaneously working to improve grades and comprehension of the material.
Contact me if you would like to schedule, and we can discuss a schedule that is flexible for both of us.

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.
