"I have ten years full-time experience teaching geography, history, and social-studies education courses at the university level. My bachelor's degree is in geography from the University of Kansas (3.93 out of 4.00 GPA), and I hold a master's and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in geography (3.92 out of 4.00 GPA), with a distributed minor in history, economics, and sociology. I have taught each of the following courses multiple times at the university level: human geography, world regional geography, physical geography, economic geography, historical geography of the United States, natural resource conservation, Latin American history, geography of tourism, and methods of teaching social studies. I have served as a social-studies education coordinator for four years at the university level, mentoring student teachers at various stages of their teacher preparation programs, and I have worked as a reader/scorer for the AP Human Geography exam on five occasions. Previously, I served as a teaching assistant in physical geography and human geography during completion of my master's degree. I also worked two years as a K-12 tutor in social studies in the Lawrence, Kansas, public schools, and one year as a tutor of geography for the University of Kansas tutoring services. I have a great deal of online teaching experience and am adept at providing real-time online instruction, lesson preparation and delivery, quick and accurate feedback, and improvement of subject matter mastery. I also have a great deal of academic and real-world experience in geology and the geosciences, having incorporated different aspects of plate tectonics, volcanic studies, geomorphology, hydrology, and atmospheric science into coursework I have led in world regional geography, physical geography, and natural resource conservation. I have taken undergraduate and graduate courses, all with "A's," in physical geology, physical geology lab, historical geology, natural hazards, physical geography, and non-equilibrium perspectives in physical science. I am also well qualified to help students prepare for the high-school PSAT test as well as writing projects at all academic levels. I also serve as an ASVAB test administrator and would be happy guiding students interested in improving their ASVAB scores for a potential career in the military. I am eager to work with you to attain your educational achievement goals! I have a great deal of flexibility in my schedule and am very technology-savvy in my approach to lesson delivery and communication. Whatever you are hoping to achieve by working with me, I will do my very best to help you improve your content knowledge and test-taking skills." less...
