About Henry

Hello! My name is Henry, I am a (fairly) recent graduate of Millersville University where I studied to be a high school social studies teacher. Throughout college I tutored students in history, economics, and government. As a tutor I developed a comprehensive method and style that ensured, by the end of the the semester, that all my students were satisfied with the grades they had earned. After the completion of my degree I became a full time substitute teacher in a number of districts around the Lancaster and York area.

My personal philosophy is that students learn best by having fun. I have 5 years experience outside of education doing stand-up and improv comedy. It is my hope that I can use my skills as a comedian to help students have fun while also learning the material.

Four years, 22 courses, and one history education degree give me a fair amount of qualification to be your history tutor. More importantly, however after studying history at the university level for four years I know better than most how boring and dull the subject can be. My hope is I can take the dull stuff your teacher or professor has been saying and put it in a context you can understand and have fun with.

Additionally, because my major area is history, a field dependent on reading analysis and navigating dense texts, I am confident that I can be an effective reading tutor, especially for those students looking to get ahead. As a substitute, I work with kids of different age groups all the time which has enhanced my flexibility as a tutor. I am also familiar with all kinds of different texts in various fields and therefore able to recommend texts and books that align with your interests, whatever they may be.

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.

My major area is history, a field dependent on reading analysis and navigating dense texts. I am confident that I can be an effective reading tutor, especially for those students looking to get ahead.

Social Studies

My concentration when I got secondary education degree from Millersville University of Pennsylvania was social studies. To achieve that degree I had to take numerous history, government and econ courses in addition to my education courses. I also tutored students in these areas for 3 years during my time at the university.
