About Spencer

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.)

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently taking coursework in elementary and special education. I spent four months working with k-6th grade, special education students in an applied behavior analysis program. I am currently working in a K-6 after school program which helps teach literacy and psychomotor activities.

Football

I played football for 13 years. After I injured my knee I became a coach. I have coached junior high and junior varsity football teams for three years and continue to attend coaching conferences to ensure my knowledge is up to date.

Public Speaking

I have multiple public speaking courses listed on my transcript. I also participated in collegiate debates as well as school and society government. I have served as president and advocate that have all required extensive public presentation.

Social Studies

I have spent the past year teaching social studies at the high school level. I am experienced in everything from psychology to modern African American History. My educational background includes a Master's Degree in American History from the University of Pittsburgh and significant coursework in modern educational methodology from 3 different universities.

Study Skills

I believe my educational background including my condensation of a two year program into one year all attest to my study skills. I am well versed in visual study aids, verbal aids and written aids. I have taken the LSATs/GREs/SATs with success.

Theatre

I was an actor in school and after leaving school I have continued my love of theatre. I currently serve as a stagehand for major theatre productions and I help out a local high school as an assistant director. I also act in local theatre productions.

Track & Field

I was an all region competitor in throwing events during high school. I competed at a collegiate level for one year. I have been coaching high school throwing for two years and I am familiar with most running events.
