About George

As a former teacher of English and History at East Carolina University, I am not only excited about helping students be successful in school today but at the same time be prepared for the next level. I have always made comprehension and insight my primary goals when teaching, and I think that makes it more engaging for the student. I would be excited to help students in English, writing, grammar, history, social studies, and government.

I have taught students who have found themselves in many different situations. I have taught in the university classroom, at community colleges, and on military bases. Before graduating I also substitute taught in public schools.

In addition to teaching history at East Carolina, I was also awarded a highly competitive fellowship for graduate study in history with one of the premier graduate schools in the country at Emory University. My teaching at East Carolina allowed me to learn how to make real understanding of the material accessible to students.

If you would like someone who obviously loves education and has given his life to learning and sharing learning with others, just contact me and I would be delighted to share more about myself and learn how I can help you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
