About Cornelius

I am a native of St. Louis, MO who comes from a long line of teachers. I was a 4th generation teacher. I originally attended Southern University and due to Hurricane Katrina I transferred to Eastern Michigan University where I received my B.A in History with a minor in Political Science. I taught History for 5 years (2 in high school & 3 in middle school). I have always have had a passion for history, my favorite eras but are not limited to the American Revolution, Antebellum Era, Civil War, and Pre World War I.

Since being out of the classroom for a few years, I always still wanted to have an impact on kids' lives. So I decided to do online tutoring in 2012. It has been a great experience. I love the interaction I have with students. I tutor students of all grade levels from Kindergarten up to College. Dialogue is one of my favorite teaching attributes, I believe through dialogue both me and the student can learn from each other.

I believe in making the subject matter relatable. I know and hear all the time "History is boring" but like I tell people that we are all walking history books. We just have to learn to sit and listen to each other, and we would be amazed on what we can learn from each other. Also there is no right or wrong in History besides factual information. A student must be able to defend his or her view point with factual information.

I'm always available to be of an assistance to you. Let me help you and you can also help me. I promise we can both learn from each other.
