I am currently a J.D. candidate at the University of Georgia School of Law. I received a Bachelor of Arts in History, Magna Cum Laude and with Honors, from the University of North Georgia in 2014. During my final year, I spent five months studying in England and traveling throughout the United Kingdom studying medieval archeology and English royal history from the Norman invasion to the reign of Elizabeth I. I tutor History, English, and writing. I can aid students in preparing for SAT and ACT verbal sections as well as any topical AP exams, having taken many of them myself. I aim to bring the historical narrative to life in a compelling way in order to maximize the student's learning experience. Topical mastery often hinges upon the ability to see beyond facts as they exist in a vacuum and apply themes across multiple contexts to observe changes in the historical landscape. Many students struggle with writing, a vital skill that will need to be mastered in order to excel at any level of education. I can help students of any level of proficiency take their writing to the next level, from those who struggle with basic skills to experienced writers who need their work checked down to the minutiae of correct punctuation placement in textual citations. Improvement can happen at any level! In the past I have tutored high school students, middle school students, and undergraduates. In my spare time I have committed myself to fitness! I enjoy anything gym related, having given myself over to the addictive forces of healthy living. I lost 70 lbs in 2014 and strive to make 2015 another great year.

Study Skills and Organization
What is your teaching philosophy?
I give the students manageable goals to achieve, and help them work towards the completion of those goals.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In the first session I want to get to know the student, address any immediate concerns such as upcoming tests, and develop an outline for our sessions going forward in order to give the sessions more structure. I want to pinpoint the academic weaknesses that need to be improved.
