Bio

I hold a Ph.D in American Studies from the University of Kansas; during this time, I tutored for KU's Department of Athletics, working with student-athletes one-on-one in a wide variety of Humanities courses. I also taught my own courses for five years, particularly those based on U.S. history and general social studies.

I hold a Ph.D in American Studies from the University of Kansas; during this time, I tutored for KU's Department of Athletics, working with student-athletes one-on-one in a wide variety of Humanities courses. I also taught my own courses for five years, particularly those based on U.S. history and general social studies.

I have a passion for helping students grow into academic success, and would like to continue to do so after my recent move to Hershey/Harrisburg. It is particularly gratifying to watch a student not only achieve higher grades, but truly learn HOW to think at a higher level, which sets him/her up for long-term success.

With this broad humanities training, I am ready to teach secondary/college students in similar fields, especially History, Social Studies, and SAT Reading & Writing. This includes AP test prep: I completed the U.S. History exam with the max score of "5".

I am typically available between 9am and 9pm during the week, with the potential for Sunday sessions as well. Locations are flexible. *Note: during summer 2017, I will be out of town July 15-29 and August 13-20.

Thank you for the consideration!
