Award-Winning History Tutors in Tucson, AZ
William "...Primarily that's because I really like people. A lot. I see things from the student's point of view, and that helps me to tutor in a way that is individualized for each student. As a high school and middle school substitute teacher and as an instructor at the North Carolina Governor's School I found that I enjoy teaching students at all levels, from middle school through advanced undergraduate. I tutor many subjects, most especially essay writing and editing, grammar and mechanics, reading comprehension and critical thinking, public speaking, Spanish language, study skills and organization, and U.S..."

Mason "...Although each student is different and I have had to adapt different approaches to certain students, I believe each case was a chance for me to learn more about how people learn and understand difficult material. Even in the classroom, I have had to adjust certain reading passages for certain students, change styles of lecture (powerpoint, reading material), and even adjust assignment levels based on the student. Yet in the long run, these changes have shaped me more as a teacher and a learner. Not only is tutoring a great way for me to help students learn their material, but it would help me to stay on my toes and be a better student as well..."
Morgana "...I truly believe that every student can become a good writer with individual attention and encouragement. In school I was (and still am) a bookworm and one who sincerely enjoys helping others to grow in knowledge. As a veteran test-taker, I can help with college entrance exam test prep (ACT, SAT, and the subject tests), using both conceptual understanding and test-specific strategies to raise scores. From my own experience, I know that scores can go up significantly with studying and tutoring. My teaching style is focused on engaging the student and using their own unique learning style and base of knowledge to move forward..."

Michael "...I enjoyed communicating the importance of critical thinking and clear argumentative writing. I also had a chance to display my passion for charting the development and influence of big ideas through History. I graduated in May 2013 with a teaching credential in secondary (7th-12th) education from Pima Community College..."
Emily "...Throughout my scholarly career, I have tutored a wide variety of people ranging from my younger siblings (currently aged 8 and 17), underclassmen, and fellow classmates. Besides helping my two younger siblings with their homework, I often helped fellow classmates work through problems in General Chemistry, Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus 1. I have also edited many of my peers’ essays for AP English Literature and college entrance applications..."
Mattius "...I am committed to professionalism as a tutor, and I guarantee visible progress in my pupils; but I'm a regular person, too. In between Chemistry labs or Literature classes, you might find me reading a book on Heritage Hill, or walking my dog with my fiance. I am a recent graduate of the University of Arizona, wherein I achieved Summa Cum Laude status with degrees in English and Russian (with a minor in Pre-Med), but I have been active in accumulating useful experience in editing and writing scientific and nonfiction content. This is because I am very passionate about entering a career that provides the resources to move education forward, adapt to reforms in educational policy, and opens a dialogue with clients and educators about sustaining comprehensive educational technology that centralize curricula, assessment, reporting, monitoring, and instructional effectiveness in order to make education more accessible to the nation's students..."
Tim "... I pride myself on my ability to break down difficult concepts and create ways to understand them. My schedule is flexible and so is my teaching style--I will tailor my approach based on whether the focus is on improving test scores, classroom performance, or general knowledge. I prefer to meet in a public area near the university, but if necessary can arrange to meet elsewhere..."
