English/Spanish Interpreter/Translator/Tutor since 1991

Not only did I always do very well in Social studies in high school and college, but my family tree includes many stories about the topics covered in a typical Social Studies class. For example, on two sides, I have relatives who were in the Revolutionary War, also on two sides I have relatives who were in World War I, World War II, and Korea. I have a relative who was a past VP of the United States.

Academic Writing Specialist and Academic Coach

I have taught social studies for more than two decades using an integrated approach. I have used text books as well as unit studies. I have taught American history and geography, world history and geography, as well as a class titled "History and Geography of the Eastern Hemisphere". I feel that social studies subjects should be taught from the point of view of people, living their lives and how they live them. Too often social studies is taught from the point of view of "this war in such and such a year" and "that rock formation". Social studies is about people and their cultures! I h [more]

Summer Hours are now available! My name is Melissa, and I specialize in academic tutoring for children (especially those with ADHD, Dyslexia, and other learning issues) and career preparation for adults such as public speaking, r [more]

Encouraging, Friendly Tutor for APA, Research, and Test Prep Help

My tutoring philosophy is, "I don't shame, blame, or judge." That's because we need to feel safe in order to learn anything, so I can help you no matter what your grade is, how far behind you are, or why you need help. I can even help you cram, if you have a test tomorrow. :) I have been a private and professional tutor for 10 years. I have taught kids age 5-13 who had ADHD, ASD, and behavior difficulties, and tutored middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and graduate studen... [more]

Building confidence is one of the keys to learning.

Social studies is the "integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence," as defined by the American National Council for the Social Studies. As a Graduate degree candidate of the Humanities, I have subject matter expertise in the area of social studies. By contrast with sociology, social studies courses often consist of a general and opinion-led discussion of topics without reference to academic theorists or research. This is also holds true for the interdisciplinary courses for the Humanities student. I can help a student think critically about society usin [more]
