I received my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004 with a major in Political Science, my Masters of Arts in History from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2012, and am currently working toward my PhD in History at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In 2006, I became a certified secondary education teacher for Social Studies and History. I taught middle school Social Studies for one year in eastern Arizona, American Government for three years in Milwaukee, and have been a teaching assistant at the college level since 2012. In addition to tutoring all social sciences, I can provide students with help in Language Arts, particularly writing and literacy. At UW-Milwaukee, I worked as a Writing Center tutor helping students improve their written communication skills. I have years of experience working one-on-one with young people, providing them with test prep strategies and challenging them to become independent lifelong learners. Meaningful learning requires great confidence, something that I try to instill in each of my students. When not reading or writing about American history, I love to spend time outdoors with my son Abraham and my wife Sara. I enjoy fly-fishing, hiking, canoeing, and watching baseball.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Quality teaching is a dialog that empowers the learner's confidence and courage needed to persevere. It is my strong belief that teachers can model the passion and motivation students need to achieve their goals.
