About Scott

I received a Masters in Education with a focus in Comprehensive Social Studies (Government, History, Psychology, Sociology, and Economics) from the Ohio State University. For fifteen years, I taught AP American Government, American Government, American History, and World History at Marion Harding High School. Though my graduate degree focuses on Social Studies, my undergrad degree is in Anthropology, and I was and English and Journalism major for two years at Ohio State.

Whether you need help conducting research and writing a paper, understanding content, or learning how to prepare for exams, I'm sure that passing along the knowledge and experience I've gained over the past twenty years will help you succeed in whatever it is you're doing.

Thanks for your consideration and I hope we can talk soon.

Though I taught social studies, I often spent my prep period at school helping my students write their research papers for junior and senior English. I was an English and Journalism major at Ohio State and was published in a central Ohio campus bi-weekly newspaper.

I taught AP Government for 11 years, and American & World History for 4 years each.

I have a a pretty laid back approach, no pressure. Pressure tends not to help. If you're willing to listen and apply what we talk about, you'll see your writing improve and your test scores get better.
