I have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike. I stress the understanding of connections and the causes/effects between events, over short-term memorizing of events/dates. It leads to a greater appreciation of history, and makes it easier to retain the information long-term.

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 rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier 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. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

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.

About History

History refers to the stories we tell of the past. The subject involves the study of people, places, events, problems, and societies during specific periods of time. History is one of those subjects kids take in school that they either really love, or they really dislike. If your child falls into the latter category, it might simply be that he or she struggles with memorizing facts, figures and historical events. It could be that the subject seems to be a little bit boring. In any case, making sure your child has a good grasp of history is important. If your son or daughter seems to be having a difficult time with history in school, it might be time to look into history tutoring.

Here at TakeLessons, we offer a wide variety of experience and professional history tutors who ca
