About Erin

I want to be your tutor! In addition to holding a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of Education degree, I am a certified teacher in two states (Texas and Utah, respectively.)

Currently, I'm an editor at a small textbook publishing company. My specialty is middle school and high school history books. However, I worked as a high school teacher and debate coach for almost a decade prior to my new career. I take a pragmatic approach to teaching. Whatever method works for you will be the one I implement. Feedback is very important and I will expect you to be an active participant in your learning.

Many of my weekends are spent coaching and judging debate. I still volunteer as an assistant debate coach at a local school. I have coached several debate teams to the Utah and Texas state championships for various state contests and national-level contests. A few of my students have medaled at these meets as well. If you want to improve your public speaking skills, I can help in that area as well.

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 hold a Bachelor's degree in History. I've worked as a history teacher at both high school and college levels. Additionally, in graduate school, I worked as a public history assistant at the Texas State Historical Association.

Public Speaking

I currently coach CX Debate at a local school district. At this school, I have qualified students for UIL State and for NFL National Qualifiers.

I have judged the following events for UIL, NFL, TFA, and NTDA for the past five years: CX/Policy debate, Lincoln-Douglas debate, Public Forum, Student Congress, Original Oratory, Prose, Poetry, Persuasive, Informative, Domestic Extemp, Foreign Extemp, Dramatic Interp, and Duo Acting.

Also, I judged CX/Policy debate at the NFL National Championships in 2009 (Birmingham, Alabama), 2010 (Kansas City, Missouri), and 2011 (Dallas, Texas.) In addition to this, I judged nearly every event at the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 NFL Qualifying District meets for the LBJ NFL District. I was honored to be a UIL CX Finals judge in 2011.

Part of my student teaching was for Competition Debate at Aubrey High School. They had 5 National Qualifiers that year. I was a volunteer coach for the Decatur Debate Team for four years. They won the 2010 3A UIL State Silver Medal for CX/Policy debate, a Top Ten Medal for Student Congress at the 2010 TFA State Meet, and qualified two CX/Policy teams and one Congressperson.

Social Studies

I am a certified social studies teacher in two states- Utah and Texas. Also, my Master's degree is in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Social Studies Education. My knowledge base in this area is solid.

Speech

I judge a variety of debate/speech/forensic events on the weekends (see Public Speaking request.)

I also student taught for Speech/Debate and acted as a volunteer forensics coach for four years.
