Recent college graduate offering History and English lesson in Manhattan and Brooklyn

Methodology

Historical content is usually taught in a lecture style with a focus on the memorization of facts. This is not the most effective style of teaching and not all students respond to this method. I believe in making connections to current events and using metaphorical situations to help students grasp historical concepts and their relevance. I also believe in teaching history in a narrative way that will allow students to retain facts through remembering historical stories.

A large part of history is writing. Through dozens of papers a year I have developed writing skills that span the spectrum from academic writing to creative writing to concise journalistic writing. I believe the best method to improving writing skills is practice, revision, and restructuring through creative prompts that cover engaging topics.

Background

I am currently a research intern with the New-York Historical Society's Center for Women's History. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in History and a minor in African American Studies. I am new to tutoring but I have thorough knowledge of American History, experience in curriculum writing for a program called Women and the American Story, and a passion for teaching accurate American history with an emphasis on the contributions of Women and People of Color.
