Ph.D. with 30 years experience will teach Social Sciences and History from Winston-Salem, NC

Methodology

I highlight active learning and bringing meaning to the subject matter so college students retain the material. I am interdisciplinary and try to bring humor to my lessons. I'm especially well-versed in working with adult students and those who are First-Generation-in-College.

Background

I've taught in universities and for museums for 3 decades, mostly college-level Social Studies and History topics. Over 10,000 students served. Students have generally been retained and completed degrees at a higher rate than the general student body. My most intensive specialty is in American Indian Studies, US History, and Cultural Anthropology, disciplines in which my students have excelled.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for online lessons : $15/h

Details

If I need to travel outside the counties of Forsyth, Guilford, Davie, Davidson, Yadkin, or Stokes Counties in NC the travel cost will be higher, dependent upon the distance I need to travel.
