"I'm Kevin. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor's degree in history and European Studies where I was awarded the top senior undergraduate research paper. I then matriculated to the University of Missouri at Kansas City where I worked on German everyday life history with a top historian in the field. My master's thesis examined the role the ordinary German soldier played in the First World War on the Eastern Front, which was a rather under-researched topic at the time.

Naturally, the methods can be adjusted according to the subject matter and the individual students' needs.

I am an European Historian who has spent 8 years teaching and tutoring students in history and 1 year of classroom as well as one-on-one experience teaching English as a Second Language.
