About Joel

I am a native of Lubbock, Texas. I also lived in Austin as a musician for a many years. Though I loved playing music, history has always been my passion. I have tried to learn as much as I can about our human past since I was very young. I always excelled in history classes in grade school and it was the only subject I was truly passionate about. I always needed tutors in math in grade school and it feels good to be able to help others with a subject that I have a lot of knowledge about. I worked as a tutor as an undergraduate during a class on the Crusades. I helped my fellow students craft difficult essays, source problems and to prepare for exams. I have also been a personal tutor to many people who needed help with this area of academics.

I decided to continue my education at Texas Tech University where I majored in History and minored in Anthropology. I did very well in all of my courses in those subjects and will be enrolling in the graduate history program at Texas Tech in the summer of 2016. I very much enjoyed having history courses mixed with anthropology courses. This allowed me to study the written past from many eras as well as the prehistory of humans at the same time. This greatly broadened my understanding of the past and how important it is to study and understand it. I am well versed in World and American History. I have a firm grasp of ancient and medieval history such as the Roman Empire and the Crusades. Also, I am knowledgeable in more current historical eras such as the American Civil War and Reconstruction and the World Wars and The Great Depression. If you need help with the anthropology, I can help you there as well. I excelled in biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and archaeology.

I know my history. I can help with ancient, medieval, renaissance, American, Texas etc. I am a history buff and I understand that not everyone is. This makes me very patient but my love for the subject will be apparent. There is not an era of history that I do not have some knowledge of. More importantly, I can show and prepare students to be successful writing history essays. I know what professors and history teachers want to see on history essays and can prepare you to take a difficult history exams.

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 a BA in History from Texas Tech University. This was my main area of interest in history for many years. I studied it diligently and never made anything but an A in my life in American History courses. I will have to refresh on my more modern American History such as the 1980s but other than that I can help you.

Anthropology

I minored in Anthropology at Texas tech University but graduated with a History BA. I will probably take the few remaining hours to get that degree as well while in graduate school. I am well versed in most of the areas of anthropology. I made A's in biological, archaeological, and cultural anthropology. The only area where I have little knowledge is in linguistics. But other than that, I am knowledgeable.

European History

I have a BA in history from Texas Tech University. While in college, I took many classes dealing with European History. I took courses on Tudor England, The Crusades, two Western Civilization courses, World History from 1500, The History of Spain, and The Nazi Era. I have a firm grasp on the history of Europe. Especially, between 1917-1945. Also, I know the Crusades, and the changes of popes and monarchs.

Music History

Not only do I have a degree in History but I was a touring professional musician for years. Before I went to school for History, I went to a music college. I took many courses on the history of rock and roll and jazz. I also, took similar courses at Texas Tech University. I know the history of recording in America in both country and r&b and their connection to rock and roll. I can also tell you about many influential artists and their contributions to popular music.

World History

I have a BA in History from Texas Tech University. This is my current area of interest. I took many World History courses like World History from 1500, and 2 Western Civilization classes. Also, I am well versed in the Crusades. I know about historical events in Asia and the Middle East such as the Opium Wars and the any Empires that came to power such as the Ottomans and Mongols.
