About Adam

I have been both teaching and tutoring students for almost ten years and will continue to do so for many more years to come. I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee and understand the importance of hard work along with dedication that is required to be successful in today's world. I have been a middle school history teacher for the past seven years, and even won Teacher of the Year in 2013 for my efforts in improving student achievement at my academic institution. Along with that, I have helped tutor countless students at both the high school and college level to great success in my field of expertise.

I focus on tutoring in U.S. History, Civics, Geography, Social Studies, and World History, and have also had success with Reading and Writing if that is needed. I also have head coaching experience with middle/ high school soccer and incorporate many teaching along with coaching concepts into my lesson style. I work with the student to help them deal with assigned learning goals and help to increase their ability to not only understand concepts, but to be able to use them in practical ways. No matter what the specific topic or challenge, I will help the student to learn and deal with challenges in every session.

I am extremely flexible with my time and am willing to reschedule with at least a 2 hour notice before a session is to begin. I am able to do lessons online but am also able to travel in and around the Bristol, VA/TN area if that is needed for the student.

I have taught History at the public school level for over seven years and learned countless techniques as well as concepts that helped my students achieve their goals in my class. My degree was a double major in both Legal Studies and History, where I regularly tutored fellow college students in history classes as well as being a graduate assistant in which I had tutoring hours every week. History is my passion and I use that to help me motivate students to learn and better understand the importance of the subject, and how it pertains to show much in our daily lives.

I help students see the connections that History has in each of our lives and realize that even something that happened a hundred years ago can be affecting us still, each and every day. Making these connections is the key to understanding and appreciating history, therefore helping a student be able to use it to help them in their studies and beyond.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and can't wait to get started.

Please contact me as often as you would like. I respond to emails and phone calls as promptly as possible to ensure the student receives the help they need in a timely fashion. I love answering questions and helping people learn history on a daily basis. So please ask away.
