"How to succeed in high school or college history class: research your topic, organize your thoughts, write a killer essay. I studied at Duke, I probably helped write your textbook, and I can help you succeed even if this is your least favorite subject.

"How to succeed in high school or college history class: research your topic, organize your thoughts, write a killer essay. I studied at Duke, I probably helped write your textbook, and I can help you succeed even if this is your least favorite subject.

I love watching that light bulb go on above a student's head. I have taught at the college and high school level, worked in publishing, and am now available for one-on-one tutoring. Together, we can ace that AP test, get an A in your college class, or even prepare a manuscript for publication.

How do we understand cultures that are not our own? Anthropology is the study of culture through close observation of peoples' beliefs, practices, symbols, and history. I learned from the best and I can help you understand culture as well.

I have taught composition at the college level, and made a living as a freelance writer for years. I know how to structure an essay to maximize its rhetorical impact. I have successfully taught students how to conduct research, organize an outline, and construct a thesis that impresses readers and teachers alike.

I have lived, studied, and conducted historical research on three continents. For many students, the problem is not history, but the watered down history of their school or college textbooks. Helping them draw connections with current events and popular culture can make the subject feel fresh and alive. Then I can strengthen their research and writing skills to help them sail through any assignment or test.

History is a window through which you can learn about the world around you. The study of history is a set of tools that will help you succeed throughout high school and college. I can help you acquire that toolset and master its use. I love helping students. That's why I'm doing this!" less...
