History has always been my passion. After studying history in college, I dove headfirst into teaching middle school. In my first year as a teacher, 100% of my students passed their state exam in history! In the following years, I eventually became the department chair and teaching coach for others in my school, and designed curriculum and wrote assessments that were used by several other teachers. After teaching for several years at a high-performing charter school, my students were consistently the highest scorers in our network for many years in a row.
I am currently taking a sabbatical year to travel abroad, and would love to work online with students currently struggling in their history classes. As my schedule is flexible as a backpacker, I'd have time to prepare for sessions with you or your child, and can work around your schedule when selecting times to meet.
After working with thousands of students, I am excited to craft unique lessons for my students and have seen incredible growth amongst students who initially claim "they just don't like" history or that history is "just not for them."
I can't wait to get started!

Tani is the best tutor my son has ever had! Not only is he a true expert, but he finds ways to engage even the most low confidence kids and excite them about what they are learning. He loves history, politics, literature and writing and this passion for learning shines through. He is also humorous and loveable, and was able to push my son to his highest grades! I highly recommend Tani to anybody and every one- it has been absolutely wonderful!+ Read More
