My beginnings as a high school tutor started close to home as I guided (and continue to guide) my teens toward their academic goals. Some of those goals included Advance Placement classes, which required a crash course in the mysteries of the College Board.

What the heck is Human Geography anyway?

Luckily, I had the tools to help. I was awarded a National Merit Scholarship to attend Bowling Green State University, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in both history and literature. The Ohio State University was my next stop, with a master’s degree in history as my prize. And along the way, as a multi-published author, I’ve learned a thing or two about writing.

However, an education doesn’t guarantee a strong tutor. Experience has helped me develop a sincere, caring style encourages students to confidently tackle challenging subjects. I encourage broad-scope understanding by breaking down overarching themes until the big picture comes into focus. I don’t leave students with a fuzzy generalities, and I don’t dwell on rote memorization. Sometimes the best path toward memorization is through quirky facts, interesting individuals, and stories that have staying power.
