About Lydia

Social studies and history have fascinated me for as long as I can remember and over the years have developed into a passion that I now strive to share with others at every opportunity. As a history major in college I gained not only a greater knowledge of the facts, but also developed my critical thinking and honed my writing skills. I also took education classes and got certified in secondary social studies and English. My professor told me I would make a great teacher because I was easily able to relate to my students. Throughout both high school and college I often tutored fellow classmates that struggled with history and literature. I have been substitute teaching in several middle and high schools in the area over the last year and have been having a great time getting to know students and helping them reach their full potential in the classroom.

My tutoring areas of expertise are history, especially United States and Western Civilization, and literature, both American and British. Since both subjects require strong critical thinking, reading, and writing skills I am also quite adept in these areas as well. In my opinion learning should be a fun and exciting experience so I strive to get know my students and create a plan and goals that play to their unique style of learning. I will also make sure that lessons are challenging enough to keep students engaged, but comfortable with the progression.

I like to do a free consultation first meeting with students to get to know them and discuss their situation and requirements as well as make sure we are a good fit! I like to have lessons in a quiet, neutral setting such as a library or coffee shop, but I am also flexible and am happy to make other arrangements with a student for his or her convenience. I am available to tutor after school and evenings during the week as well as Saturdays.

I can't wait to hear from you and start working on helping you reach your learning goals!

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.

American History

I have BA in History and am certified to teach Secondary Social Studies. I love American History especially the Revolutionary and Civil War. I think everyone should know about the country they live in and I have some very interesting and fun resources to help students learn!

Cooking

My mom taught me how to cook when I was fairly young. During the summers in High School she would make me and my sister plan the meals, get the groceries, and make the meals so I have a lot of practice making a variety of dishes. I can cook with a variety of foods and make several ethnic cuisines, including Italian, Latin American, Jamaican, PA Dutch, and pretty much anything else!

English

I am certified to teach Secondary English Literature and Composition. Being a history major in college helped to hone my critical reading and writing and gave me and appreciation for those skills. Students need to understand how to express themselves well.

Geography

I am certified to teach Secondary Social Studies. I think it is very important that people know were places are especially in the world. Even though Google may tell you were to go it is still important that you be able to understand the map that it generates for you! As a teacher there are some very cool things you can do with Google Earth as a teaching resource.

Literature

I am certified to teach Secondary English Literature and Composition. I have read and love all the classics and know their themes and motifs well. I even helped several of my friends understand books we were reading in school and tutoring them to pass assessments.

SAT Reading

This was always my best section on tests. I am also certified to teach English Literature and Composition. It always helps to have a general knowledge about the classics and their themes and motifs. This test section usually requires practice in reading comprehension.

Soccer

I have played soccer since I was in fourth grade on rec teams, school teams, and pick-up and intramural in college. I have watched a lot of games and know the game very well. I have a passion for the sport and love to see people learn how to play the game better.

Social Studies

I have BA in History and am certified to teach Secondary Social Studies. I I think everyone should know about people around them whether that is their history or why they think and act a certain way. I have discovered some very interesting and fun Social Studies resources to help students learn!

Writing

I am certified to teach Secondary English Literature and Composition. Being a history major in college helped to hone my critical writing and I went from someone who did not like writing to someone who is very good at it and enjoys it. Students need to understand how to express themselves well.
