I approach each lesson targeting the student's specific needs and what areas need clarification, understanding, or foundation. I am fully aware how tricky or dusty History can be, therefore I try to make real-world connections, comparisons, and examples in order for students to enjoy, understand, and retain historical information.
I am a historian with 4 years of teaching/tutoring experience (BA in European History). I have taught students from middle school to college age in History, Geography, German, and Analytical Writing. I aim to make classes fun and understandable for all students so that History can be a well-connected story instead of a jumbled catalog of names and dates.
