About Serge

After having loved and taught U.S. and World History for 10 years, I decided it's time to be closer to my family in the Northeast. I grew up in NYC in a wonderful, very diverse neighborhood, Washington Heights (or, as I like to say, it was so good they turned it into a Broadway play!).

That diversity led me to an appreciation of many cultures, which in turn, perked up my interest in history. I've taken many courses in using art, music, photography, and other sources to interest my students in what they feel is a "useless" subject. However, by connecting their world to the past, they gain knowledge of history's importance.

I've been trained and worked with some incredible teachers in my school; Because of MY parents' history, I've also done training at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC and attended a three day National Conference for educators at the Museum.

Working with students can be a slow process, but it is always and enjoyable one.

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.

Photography

I studied photography at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City under some incredible photographers. In college I learned darkroom techniques, lighting and printing. I served as an assistant to a professional photographer while in school, and graduated from SVA with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Photography.

Social Studies

I have taught World and American History for 10 years as a teacher in Broward County. I have both Florida and Pennsylvania professional licenses in Social Studies from grades 5-12, and have also been trained in Holocaust History at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC.
Most importantly, I love teaching and I love history.
