"I was an award-winning instructor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia for two years but I left teaching to take a job in finance. Teaching is like a virus -- it gets in your blood. Now I tutor in the evenings and on weekends because I enjoy interacting with students. I do finance during the day because it pays the bills.

"I was an award-winning instructor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia for two years but I left teaching to take a job in finance. Teaching is like a virus -- it gets in your blood. Now I tutor in the evenings and on weekends because I enjoy interacting with students. I do finance during the day because it pays the bills. I am happy to teach social studies, history, English and SAT/ACT prep to 8th grade students and above. While I am relatively new to TutorZ, I have been teaching, in various guises, since 2008. If I teach you and you work hard, you will master the subject. I hold myself to a high standard and you will also be held to a high standard as well. But it will also be fun! I promise. I am an excellent English teacher because I am a voracious reader. I have a personal library of some 6,000 books and I have read almost all of them. Of course, I have taken many English and literature classes over the years and I have also taken four semesters of legal writing. I have also scored in the 95th percentile on English on the ACT, SAT, GRE, LSAT and Praxis tests. I can teach and edit. Some people do one or the other, I do both. Mastery of language arts is important because it is the primary way in which we express ourselves. I love helping students express their thoughts to the best of their abilities. Social studies and history are my favorite subjects. I am good at them because I am always thinking about them. Not a day goes by when I do not think about history or politics. To be "good" at history, government or the social studies is to learn how to analyze facts and apply critical thinking skills. It is not just about memorizing dates or names. These are skills that will serve you your whole life. I relish the chance to help you master them. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you meet your academic goals." less...
