All-Star tutoring by AP US History, AP US Govt. and AP Comparative Govt. teacher w/35 years experience in NEPA focuses on student success.

Methodology

My focus is on student success. I believe students learn best when they understand what the ultimate goal is, and they understand what they need to do in order to reach that goal. I strive to ensure that students buy in to the goal, and are willing to work hard to succeed. My goal is to help students learn HOW to learn so that they become successful lifelong learners.

Background

I have served as a social studies teacher in northeastern Pennsylvania for over 30 years, working with students at the elementary, secondary, and collegiate levels. I have tutored for over 15 years, working with students on preparation for the AP Exams in US History, US Government and Politics, and Comparative Government, as well as SAT prep, ACT prep, and college essays. I have dedicated my professional life to giving students the tools necessary to be successful not only in the classroom, but in life as well.
