ExperienceI am a tutor and professional historian. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in history from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I also attended Miami University in Ohio, where I earned my Master of Arts in History, and Wheaton College in Illinois, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies and History. I have completed more than 100 hours of history courses at the graduate level. I also taught history at the University of North Carolina for three semesters. I moved to Dallas in 2013 after living in Moscow, where I worked on archival research for my doctoral dissertation in Russian history.My objective as a historian is to help students understand that history is not just dates and names. Instead, history provides an opportunity to improve ourselves and our communities, as well as being worthy of exploring for its own sake. As a teacher, I strive to help my students improve as thinkers, readers, and writers. These are essential skills that will continue to benefit students, initially during their academic studies, but also afterward and in many contexts. I place an emphasis on writing and thinking critically, whether I am teaching in a classroom or individually as a tutor. I teach students how to develop and write essays that are effective syntactically, correct grammatically, properly organized, and persuasive. Additionally, I help students learn to read a text critically, and to identify the main arguments and ideas from the text, whether it is a press release, novel, or poem.I tutor students in French, Russian, English, writing, essay editing, literature, grammar and mechanics, college essays, American history, European history, religious studies, and social studies. I also work with students who are studying for the GRE.In my free time, I am interested in detective fiction, tours of architecture in Dallas, embroidery, and yoga.
HobbiesYoga, detective fiction, embroidery, design history
