About Pamela

My name is Pamela and I have been teaching something for most of my life. For the past 15 years I've been working in the world of standardized testing as a history specialist -- so I know quite a bit about the tests students will be required to take in school. I've also taught at the middle school, high school, and university level. I have a PhD in History and love teaching students about history.

My favorite part of teaching and tutoring is working with students to help them understand concepts. There's nothing that pleases me more than to see a student who has been terribly frustrated and feels that they can't learn, suddenly grasp a concept or make connections relating to history. I like to tie historical events to current events to help students remember the information more clearly. And most of all, I think that history should be a fun subject to learn -- not an exercise in remembering names and dates!

I have recently worked with several college students who had completed their education course work and were needing help with preparation for their licensing test in Social Studies. My work with them included help with timelines, making connections between eras and events, and gaining a strong grounding in the fields that were included on the test. I also assist with test-taking strategies to help those who were not strong test takers.

I have a PhD in History with fields in U.S. History, Modern European History, and Latin American History. I've also worked as a history specialist on standardized tests so I know the types of questions that appear on tests that students are required to take in school.

I'd love to share my knowledge with you and help you to better understand history.

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.

Social Studies

I have a Ph.D. in History with a focus on U.S. History. I've taught and tutored both halves of the general U.S. survey courses. And I've worked in the field of educational assessments for over 15 years and have intimate knowledge of the type of materials taught in the middle school and high school classroom.

Writing

As a teacher, I spend a great deal of time working with my students on the construction of essays. I teach them how to analyze a topic, set up an essay, and support their assertions with appropriate factual information. I have also worked to assist students with the writing of essays for standardized tests.
