"My name's David, and I have a B.A. (High Honors) in History, with additional experience tutoring English. I've worked with middle schoolers, high schoolers, undergrads and adults.

I believe the reason many people don't like History is that they see no use for it in their everyday lives. Just a bunch of (as my professors used to say) "Old Dead White Guys" making laws and fighting with each other. More grievously, many versions of history I've seen present a sanitized, PG version of history that gloss over less savory aspects of history, thereby removing the potential lesson to be learned. An understanding of history helps us understand a great majority of how government works in our own country, as well as an understanding of global political problems.

Our country is one of the youngest in the world. I wonder if we as Americans don't care that much about our own history, because we don't have as much as other countries do. It's in our cultural genetics--we look forward, ignoring what's made us along the way. We often shake our heads in disbelief at wars fought over some grievance hundreds of years ago--while it might be inconsequential to a young nation such as us, it's very fresh in others' minds. It's my intention to make history relevant, to present it in an interesting fashion, and to help in test/exam preparation in any way I can offer.

In addition to my extensive historical and writing knowledge, I have proven experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). I specialize in practical speaking skills, helping my students become more confident in their speaking skills and easily converse with native speakers on everyday topics. Topics include such common subjects as ordering a meal in a restaurant, asking for a bus schedule and talking about favorite subjects with friends. More advanced topics include test preparation, job interviews and university applications. My" less...
