About Dayton

My name is Dayton and I am currently pursuing a master's degree in international studies as well as a high school teaching certificate. My whole career track is geared toward education and I love teaching. When I was younger I struggled to find interest in my school work, and therefore understand why students have trouble learning. As an adult, I have become interested in academia and want to help students that struggled like I did.

While I was a junior and senior in college, I tutored American history through my school. I found that job to be the most rewarding job I have ever had, and found it satisfying to hear my students come back and tell me that I helped them make the grade they wanted or higher. I hope to contribute more to students through tutoring through WyzAnt.

While doing my undergraduate degree, I spent two years tutoring freshman and sophomore college students in American history. During that time, I was required to go to the classes with them and learn the information alongside them. Because of this this, I have sat through eight semesters worth of high-quality American history lectures. I also received training in study skills and time management, and am qualified to instruct students on those topics as well. My coursework in international relations required me to extensively study the fields of world history, political science, and geography as well.

Contact me if you would like to learn more about my background or how I can help you, or if you would like to schedule lessons. I look forward to helping you soon!

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.

Political Science

I completed a bachelor's degree and master's degree in international studies, which required that I take more than ten political science classes at the graduate and undergraduate levels. I was also a teaching assistant with my university's political science department where I graded papers for a political science class.

Social Studies

I am currently working on my teaching certificate and recently passed the TEXES 232, certifying me to teach all forms of social studies in grades 7-12 in Texas. Further, I have a bachelor's degree in international studies and I am working on a master's degree in the same field. This is a multidisciplinary degree that has required me to take classes in history, geography, political science, and sociology. I believe these qualifications will help me teach social studies at any level.
