Why do you need tutoring?

Mr. Shawn M.

specializes in Retired Lawyer who loves to teach · male

"I am a retired lawyer. I'm 51. I practiced law for 25 years. I taught college classes at night because I enjoyed it so much. I have taught classes in American History and Government, Business law, Fourth Amendment Search & Seizure law. I like for my students to see the big picture rather than the little crappy things that teachers make you do. It all comes together naturally.

I love history and more...

I love history and government, both American and European. I also can teach music and Basic Latin. I am very good at writing. After all that's how I made my living.

Some historians believe that history runs in a straight line. I do not. History moves in circles. I want all of my tutors to be familiar with historiography (people who study the discipline itself). Dates are not very important. Once you understand the ebb and flow of history, you'll know the dates without having to memorize. Big picture understanding leads to enormous small learning.

I would be happy to talk, face time, email etc. anyone is interested." less...
