About Christie

I am Ph.D. candidate in American Studies set to graduate in December 2017. My dissertation incorporates aspects of material culture, economics, and industrial history to explore how mourning culture became a form of popular culture in the late 1800s. I have previously worked as an archivist in two archives in the Harrisburg/Derry Township area, adding to ever increasing knowledge base for all things "history."

My B.A. is in English from PSU and my M.S. is in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University. During the pursuit of degrees I worked for a combined 12 years as a tutor for for a tutoring company and Pennsylvania State University Harrisburg's Writing Center. Additionally, I have volunteered with Drexel University's ipl2 program providing reference and literature help.

My qualifications for tutoring in English are composed of a combined 12 years experience in tutoring and reference help both online and in-person through Penn State University, Drexel University, and online tutoring services; graduating with distinction from PSU with a B.A. in English; graduating with distinction from Rutgers with a MLIS in Library and Information Science; and several pending publications in academic journals pertaining to my dissertation research.

For American History, my qualifications include: maintaining a 4.0 in graduate level courses required for Ph.D in American Studies; dissertation in-progress title "Manufacturing Mourning: Industrialization's Influence on Private Culture"; several years experience as a professional archivist in reference and collection management services; personal interest in 19th and 20th century history, especially public history and material culture.

If interested, please contact me for more information!
