About Jacob

Hi, my name is Jacob C. I am currently in my last semester of my master's degree at Texas Tech University and have moved to Virginia to be closer to my family. My focus is Modern European History. I have passed all the graduate classes with a B+ or above and have maintained an A average inside my main subject focus. From my classes, time spent as a teacher's assistant, and personal readings, I have built a strong understanding of American, Texas, European, Roman, Greek and Chinese history. I can help in any history or government class for any grade, as well as the more specific classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. These include several different methods for learning the source material, both traditional and nontraditional, and specific examples and lesson plans built to improve one's ability to write strong and coherent essays from middle school to graduate level.

I have been both home and public schooled and have an understanding of both methods of instruction. I have tutored several fellow students in math, government and history in high school and at Tech and have spent the last two years as a teacher's assistant for several different history classes. My dream is to be a professor, so I gladly look forward to helping others with their studies.

Please feel free to contact me any time.

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.

Classics

For my bachelor's at Texas Tech I dual majored in history and classics. My foreign language was in ancient Greek and my grade level for my classic classes was a 3.8 average. My focus for those classes was on the world of Rome and Greece.
