Bio

As a published historian who has lectured widely on a variety of topics, I am surprised and saddened by how many people I meet who tell me that they hate history and think it's a boring and irrelevant subject. "You make history come alive," I am often told...followed by "I've always hated history - all those names and dates to memorize...yuck! I wish you'd been my history teacher!"

As a published historian who has lectured widely on a variety of topics, I am surprised and saddened by how many people I meet who tell me that they hate history and think it's a boring and irrelevant subject. "You make history come alive," I am often told...followed by "I've always hated history - all those names and dates to memorize...yuck! I wish you'd been my history teacher!" Having worked in the field of public history and taught in an academic setting, I have found that this is one of the main reasons that people struggle with the subject of history - they think it is boring and has no direct impact on their lives today.

I have taught history at the community college level and am Praxis certified in Middle School and High School Social Studies. I have worked in the field of public history, making history come alive to audiences at several museums and historic sites throughout Virginia, and I have also published two major works on the American Civil War and an original essay in a compilation on World War I.

With an advanced degree in the local and global aspects of Military History and additional studies and Praxis certification, I feel more than comfortable helping you achieve top-notch grades in the subject areas of American History, European History, Social Studies, and World History.

While evenings and weekends work best for me, I am willing to be as flexible as I can to meet with you succeed in a topic that can be very challenging, but also extremely rewarding. It is my hope that my passion for this vital topic will be transferred to you and that your time with me will open new doors into a successful future!
