About Nathan

For six years, I worked in the Washington Township School District. I taught 9th grade World History full time for three of those years and tutored many students in their homes in World History and other Social Studies subjects. This included American History, Civics, Geography, Psychology, and Sociology. In addition, I also advised two student clubs, Model UN and Youth in Government. Currently, I work part time in the gift shop at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia and I volunteer extensively at a thrift store.

My tutoring methods are centered around enthusiasm and expert knowledge of the subject material. Tutors should be extremely well versed and prepped before they tutor students and that is my primary goal. However, knowledge alone does not help students learn, and therefore, I emphasize making lasting connections between the subject material and the student. Enthusiasm, compassion, understanding, and genuine care are essential in this regard. It is these characteristics that not only help students remember but also ensures that they become lifelong learners.

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.
