I recently completed a Ph.D in American Studies at 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.
During that time, I developed 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 and Social Studies. This includes AP test prep (though it was 15 years ago, I did complete the U.S. and European History exams with the highest-possible score of "5" on each).
I am typically available between 9am and 9pm during the week, with the potential for Sunday sessions as well. Locations are flexible.

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.
I completed an undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina. I also interned in the U.S. House of Representatives and the North Carolina Metropolitan Coalition, which works within the NC state legislature. Finally, my current work in American Studies frequently addresses political and philosophical issues.
