About Spencer


Bio

My experience is primarily in American History and history in general. I have a Masters degree from the University of Pittsburgh. My interests and experience also stretches far beyond this limited scope. I am currently enrolled at Mercyhurst University, taking coursework in educational methodology and pedagogy. My education experience goes beyond that as I have worked with and taught all age ranges from pre-school to adults in various settings.

My experience is primarily in American History and history in general. I have a Masters degree from the University of Pittsburgh. My interests and experience also stretches far beyond this limited scope. I am currently enrolled at Mercyhurst University, taking coursework in educational methodology and pedagogy. My education experience goes beyond that as I have worked with and taught all age ranges from pre-school to adults in various settings.

My passion is in teaching and I employ a variety of techniques in order to reach varying learners. It is my personal belief that everyone learns differently and as such I customize my tutoring techniques to include everything from direct instructional methods, memorization techniques and projects that will be both thoughtful and engaging. I believe everyone can learn and I will work to make that a reality.

Aside from the liberal arts and social studies I have experience in dramatic theatre as an actor as well as a director and stage hand. I also am highly experienced in Football, currently serving as an assistant football coach; I have also served as a coach for Track and Field.

My experience is as varied as each person tends to be. I am young, energetic and passionate about my work and it is my hope that I can bring some of those characteristics to you and your learning experience.

(I am a passionate sci-fi geek and will be happy to provide tutelage in most video games, dungeons and dragons, most board/table-top games or talk Doctor Who, Star Wars etc.)
