Professional historian and educator with almost a decade of teaching experience offering individual and small group history instruction.

Methodology

My pedagogical approach to teaching history is holistic. I focus on introducing students to the tenets of historical methodology and research as well as emphasizing significant themes, events, ideas, and peoples so students have a basic knowledge of the historical subject. Finally, I work with students in mastering the skills necessary in successfully studying history (and really any academic subject) especially critical thinking, reading comprehension, and succinct writing. These transferrable skills are also invaluable for professional careers.

I offer instruction in U.S. History (17th century-present), the Western Civilization survey, and World History survey. I can also offer instruction for specific topics in European History and ancient Greco-Roman history. I tailor my services based on student need. In person individual and small group instruction is available for the Tri-Cities, WA area and electronically by skype.

Background

I am a professional historian and educator with a PhD from Purdue University in history with a specialization in American History. I have been teaching history courses for eight years for four different universities. I have taught U.S. History courses including the introductory surveys and introductory courses for World History and Western Civilization.
