About Maureen

I have 7 years of teaching experience. I have worked both in public and independent schools. During these 7 years, I've taught AP U.S. history, U.S. history, European history, and World Geography. My students have routinely done well on their SOL and AP exams. Most recently, 100% of my students passed the AP U.S. History exam.

I love the subject of history because it is all about human beings and their behavior. I think this subject matter can be fascinating to anyone if they find a way to focus on the story and move past just memorizing facts that seem random to them. In addition to loving history, I am also a huge fan of travel and fitness. I enjoy working with youth and have worked with them outside of the classroom as a coach and club sponsor.

In my 5 years of teaching SOL courses (U.S. History and World Geography), my students passed with an average rate of 99%.

I have experience working with a variety of students including those who are English Language Learners, those with learning differences, and those studying at an advanced level. I routinely work with my students, one-on-one, to help them improve their abilities. I also prioritize helping my students not only in learning the history content, but also in developing important skills such as thesis-based writing, critical thinking, source analysis, and note-taking.

I studied both history and education at the University of Virginia and graduated with over a 3.9 G.P.A. Since becoming a teacher, I have continued my study of history and teaching practices through several professional development sessions.

I look forward to helping you improve your writing, analytical, and study skills.

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.

My AP students regularly perform well above the national average on the AP exam and, most recently, 100% of my students passed the 2015 AP U.S. history exam. I have also attended multiple professional development programs focused on American history including the We the People summer institute, 2 AP U.S. history summer institutes, and a "Teaching Civil Rights" workshop.
