About Torry

I am a certified teacher with twelve years' experience teaching young people and managing groups of teachers in the Houston area. I have a certification in Secondary Social Studies Composite. I have worked with hundreds of English language learners over the years and have deep roots in many of Houston's various cultural communities. I have taught Texas, U.S., and World History, Geography, Government, Economics, and Sociology. I love studying history and sharing my enthusiasm and joy for this discipline with young people.

I am a lifelong learner with a passion for education and an intense desire to contribute to my community through service. I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a good sense of humor. I am an analytical and versatile thinker, with sharp insight into social and historical developments. I graduated with honors, cum laude, from the University of Houston, and recently completed the Film Studies program at Houston Community College. I was elected Teacher of the Year in 2010 at my school. I have a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Film Studies. I graduated with honors, cum laude, from The University of Houston in 1998. I took graduate courses in Education at The University of Houston. I received a Teaching Certificate in History, Geography, and comprehensive Social Studies and taught high school in Houston for many years. I recently completed an Associate of Applied Science, Filmmaking degree at Houston Community College in 2015 and am an aspiring documentary film maker.

I am generally available for tutoring every day from 9am to 9pm and can travel to meet students. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
