PhD candidate in History with 6 years experience teaching at the college level; can tutor in all Humanities subjects in Birmingham area

Methodology

My teaching methodology can best be characterized as student-directed. I begin each lesson by asking the student what he or she believes they need assistance with and structure the lesson from there. Students will find my style to be very conversational and laid-back while also focused and efficient. We always get where we need to be.

Background

I am in the process of receiving my PhD in History from Northwestern University and have been teaching at the college level since 2011. I have a Master's Degree from Northwestern and a Bachelor's Degree in History from Seattle University, where I was also a writing tutor for 3 years.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $27/h
