Professional Social Studies Teacher with over 20 Years Experience Available for Tutoring in Kansas City

Methodology

I try to get students to take ownership of their learning by pushing them to problem-solve for themselves. I try to guide them to the right answer by asking questions. I don't think students learn best when they are asked to regurgitate answers back to the teacher but rather when they are taught to find the clues that help them figure out the answers for themselves.

I also think learning should be fun and engaging. I try to bring humor into the learning process by being humble and self-deprecating. Students need to learn that it is OK to make mistakes and that everyone, including the teacher, makes them.

Background

I am a professional educator with over 20 years experience teaching at the high school and community-college levels. I have degrees in political science and history. I have taught 5 different Advanced Placement social studies courses, including AP US History, AP World History, AP European History, AP US Government, and AP Comparative Politics.

Chris's CV

I have a Masters Degree in Political Science and have completed all of my work for my Ph.D. except for the dissertation. I completed all of my graduate work with high honors, including passing my comprehensive doctoral exams. I have a B.A. in Political Science and History from the University of Notre Dame and was valedictorian of my high school class.

I have worked for over 20 years as a high school social studies teacher and community college professor. I have taught US History, US Government, Political Science, World History, European History, and Comparative Politics and have 20 years experience working with AP exams. I have also worked for The Princeton Review helping students with the ACT, SAT, GRE, and LSAT, in addition to some private tutoring for these exams.

I specialize in essay writing and preparing for Advanced Placement Social Studies exams.
