Kent State University (History)
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! My name is Jacob B., and I have a Bachelor's of Arts and Sciences in history from Kent State University.

Jacob B. is an amazing tutor. He is currently tutoring my daughter in AP World History. He is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and keeps the sessions interesting. We have hired him for several 2-hour sessions and several 1.5-hour sessions, so you know he has to keep things lively for those long sessions. He teaches from my daughter's textbook and with video on-line lessons. He comes prepared having read all of her material and having looked at all of her real teacher's assignments on-line. So he knows what is going on in her classroom each day! He also prepares test reviews for her and gives her assignments as well. So far, her quiz grades have improved a letter grade. He is very pleasant and arrives on time. We are grateful to Jacob B.
Jacob is an excellent tutor! He has been tutoring my son in AP World History, and has helped him to improve by two letter grades in a short period of time. Jacob brings a real enthusiasm about history to his sessions, making it interesting and even - dare I say it - fun! He is engaging, friendly, and professional. I highly recommend him.
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.
I hold a bachelor's degree in history. I have taken more than 16 credit hours of European history during my college coursework. I have passed the TeXes Social Studies 7-12 exam, which includes content on European history.
