I am fully licensed to teach history and social studies to students grades 6-12 and have experience working with students studying various subject areas. I have previously taught US History, World History, as well as Virginia's Economics and Personal Finance course. Additionally, I have worked with students at middle, high school, and college levels. Previously, I studied at William & Mary, where I double-majored in History and Government and joined both the Phi Alpha Theta and Pi Sigma Alpha honor societies, and then moved on to earn two master's degrees from Virginia Tech, one in history and one in education.
I work with students from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets to identify areas of potential growth in academic performance and develop learning goals tailored to the needs of the student. I collaborate with students and their parents to construct interventions and instructional strategies to help students meet their goals and succeed in school.
I am highly knowledgeable in American government, as well as American, European, and World History, and I have extensive research experience in Revolutionary and Antebellum American history. My postgraduate training in history helps students develop the critical thinking they need to succeed in their history and social studies classes, as well as refine the writing skills they need to do well on research papers and timed writings.
