About Howard D.

I am a certified and experienced teacher that has taught all Social Studies courses with the exception of Sociology. I specialize in AP United States History, AP European History, AP U.S. Government & Politics, AP Comparative Government, and AP Microeconomics, which I have or currently teach (*I am not able to tutor students in my own district). I have been an AP Reader for European History and focus in my courses on the Historical Thinking Skills necessary to be able to write a great response to essay questions. Furthermore, I have extensive experience with differentiating instruction and designing engaging lessons for my students.

Students have a variety of different learning styles, which is one of the primary reasons that students struggle in class as not all teachers adapt their teaching style to meet their students. Differentiating instruction helps to meet all students where they are, match their learning styles with appropriate materials, and be successful as they experience a steady increase in challenge. Most importantly, I enjoy empowering students to be able to find their own resources and to help them learn how to think through questions, study their materials, and feel confident in their studies.

I graduated from Trinity University with a Bachelor's in History and a Minor in English and then went on to complete a Master's in Teaching also at Trinity. While teaching, I also completed Master's degrees in School Administration and History. I enjoy school (obviously) and work hard to try and get my students to see learning as something exciting and worthwhile.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I have taught AP US History for 11 years and have been an AP Exam Reader for the CollegeBoard.

Economics

I am an Advanced Placement Economics teacher and hold Master's degrees in Education and History. I generally spend a lot of time working with students to understand the key graphs in economics courses, the underlying assumptions behind those graphs, and working on translating conceptual understanding to practical applications. Although I generally teach Microeconomics, I am able to work with most Macroeconomics concepts as well (I have taught Macroeconomics).

Social Studies

I have 13 years' experience teaching nearly all Social Studies courses with the exception of Sociology. I have been certified in Texas for Social Studies (8-12), History (8-12), English Language Arts (8-12), and as a Principal (EC-12). I have two Master's degrees in Education (Teaching and School Administration) and a Master's in History. Furthermore, I was the Social Studies Department Chair from 2008 to 2015.

I have extensive experience with differentiating instruction, Advanced Placement and grade level courses, have served as an AP Exam Reader for the CollegeBoard/ETS.
