I'm a published author currently pursuing a master's in liberal arts at Houston Baptist University, and planning to take classes at Reformed Theological Seminary to begin pursuing my master's of religion this summer. I adore literature, and I think that anyone is capable of being passionate about a good book if given the tools to read it properly; I love history, and think that anyone can be passionate about the past if they understand its enormous impact on the present. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family -I'm the oldest of eight, so that includes a lot of time chasing ...

"Ever since, I've had the opportunity to help students in Math, English, Test Prep, and even getting organized! I love helping students in their academics as well as helping them find scholarships and the right college! Personally, my favorite subjects in high school included Algebra 2, Calculus AB, World History, and Spanish 3 Pre-Ap. These subjects really intrigued my mind and kept me thinking. Because I was taught in a variety of different schools (public & private) and because I myself have been tutored, I feel that I can better relate to those trying to improve their skills or trying to leap ahead. Practice, understanding, and ...

"I completed my degree in Secondary Education with teaching fields in History and English. I enjoy studying pretty much anything in history, but my main focus has been American, Texas and British histories. I love both reading and writing in the English/Language Arts area, and I like to foster at least an interest, if not a passion, in my students for both. I like to write for my own pleasure, and I have years of editing experience in the classroom as a teacher and outside the classroom for individuals who need help and on book manuscripts for publication." ...

"As a graduate student I specialized in world history as well as the Civil War era including the antebellum and reconstruction periods. I began to tutor fellow students as an undergraduate and it was then that I realized I have a passion for helping others learn a subject that may not always come so easily to them. As a tutor I help my students not just to answer the question but I strive to help them and give them the confidence to understand the question so that the answer comes from their own understanding and comprehension of the subject. Many students dislike history but I have found that once they understand the subject matter history ...
