I love analyzing events in history and seeing connections/causes/effects between seemingly unrelated events. I stress long-term understanding instead of short-term memorizing of events/dates.

I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is negotiable if we work together for an extended time.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

History is far more than memorizing names and dates, and I don't think it should be taught like that either. We work at understanding what happened and why it happened while understanding when it happened.

I have a Master's Degree in Education, and have been a professional tutor for 9 years.

History is the story about our parents, grandparents, grand-grandparents and so on. Is about how did they live, how did they died and what did they accomplish.

History is about where they build their houses, how did they get along with their neighbors, what stupid mistakes they made and how they fixed them and all other little things that makes a life.

History is about your ancestors. They could have been gold mine diggers, farmers, presidents or kings, teachers, healers or priests.

My teaching method is to make you understand how we became what we are today. If you learn this, then you will not only pass the exams but you may fall in love with the past.

Because to foresee the future you must know the past.
