Writer and bibliophile from Charlotte loves to explore the history of the world.

Methodology

Since I am here for you, my teaching style or tutoring is individualized for the student. We all learn in a different manner. It is important to be open and adaptable. What works for one person may not work for you, just as a single style may be perfect in one instance, but not in another.

Background

I am an award-winning and internationally published author, editor, and educator with a degree in history. Though most of my students were Middle and High School level, I have taught all ages and also used to coach soccer. I love to inspire people to learn, regardless of the specialization of the subject, and embrace life rather than be afraid of it.
