Hello there! I'm Michael, a UC Davis Aggie, recently graduated History and German double major, and enthusiastic lover of knowledge! I have multiple years of experience tutoring an international client base in English, German, and History amongst other topics. I endeavor to make my tutoring sessions not only useful, but fun by incorporating the individual interests my students in my lessons and tailoring our sessions around their needs and wants.
When I'm not teaching, I keep myself busy with gardening, hiking, guitar playing, folk music (American and Russian mostly), swing and ballroom dancing, and backyard tinkering.

Q & A
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Guiding a student in teaching themselves instead of providing them with answers, as well as providing hands on demonstrations of research skills and methods, i.e. tutorials in JSTOR, archival work, source corroboration, etc.
