About Jacob

My name is Jacob B., and I have a Bachelor's of Arts and Sciences in history from Kent State University. I am currently enrolled in the Texas Teachers Alternative Certification program. I am currently licensed on a year long probationary basis to teach history and social studies in grades 7-12. I have management and training experience from my past employment specifically with students attending high school and early college. I have recently taken and passed the TeXes Social studies 7-12 exam.

I am a very patient, easy going person and that reflects in my teaching ability. While history is not a high demand tutoring subject, I am skilled in explaining the topics in a way that is relevant, or makes more sense to the students. History and social studies are stories, and sometimes students just need the topics explained to them in a different manner, and that is something that I can bring to the table. I'm looking forward to working with you!

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.

One third of the required classes for my degree was in American History. This is a subject that I have excelled in throughout my entire educational career.

European History
