Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We covered European politics, philosophy, science and communications during the course of the "long 18th century" (1685-1815) as part of a movement referred to by its participants as the Age of Reason, or simply the Enlightenment. The student was very receptive of the instruction."
"The student and I discussed the Cold War from 1945-1975, including treaties and accords, proxy wars, and the sociopolitical scene in the US (and USSR, to a lesser extent) during. We briefly discussed another upcoming project and sent an email to her history teacher. She will read the primary source material for the assignment as given. With guidance from the teacher, we will be very close to prepared for the student to take the first exam."
"The student and I discussed the Napoleonic Wars and the Haitian Revolution. For the Napoleonic Wars, we went over the basic contours of the disruptions Napoleon caused. We spent much more time dwelling on the Haitian Revolution and the origins of the Revolution. The student's teacher wanted her to focus on arguments between gradual and immediate abolition. In order to give context to the debate, we took a little peek ahead in history to the unraveling of Reconstruction in the American South. I brought the failures of Reconstruction in order to highlight the sense of urgency that must have weighed on those arguing for immediate abolition. It would not have been to difficult to foresee changes in political circumstances that allowed for a rollback of gradual abolition."
