History/Classical Liberal Arts Tutor with Five Years of Experience in Dumfries VA.

Methodology

- Explaining why the student should be invested in the topic. How the topic directly affects the student. Students often forget the material if they aren't given a reason to care about it.

- Proceeding from broad general concepts (e.g The Industrial Revolution) to important figures during the time (Adam Smith/John Stuart Mill) to specific dates (First Factory in England is built in 1769). This provides a general framework before asking students to memorize specific concepts.

Background

- I am a History Student, I have taken more than 120 credits in History, Historiography, Mythology, and Philosophy.

- I regularly read Historical Journals and old Academic works of History (often familiar with 19th Century Historians such as Burckhardt, Leopold Van Ranke, etc)

- Most knowledgeable in American and English History, with a general background in Western Civilization as a whole.
