More About Me
It is my dream to become a high school history teacher and share my love of history with other students! I know that many people can find history boring at times, but I always try to search out for the most important aspects of history to me. History covers so many topics from art to fashion to film to tech, it would be impossible to not find one topic in history that doesn’t interest you! As a tutor, I would try to work really hard to find out what will make learning history fun for you. For example, I love watching movies and learning about pop culture, so I always try to find historical connections in films (whether its a historical movie or not), and I want to help you make your own connections to something in history too! My favorite topics in history are the 1960s and 70s, the period of decolonization and revolutions in Africa and Latin America, the world wars, and the witch trials! As I mentioned, I love movies and some of my favorite movies that relate to a period in history are Atonement, Little Women (2019), Pride and Prejudice, Saving Private Ryan, A Very Long Engagement, and so many more!
