I have a Ph. D. in sociology from Penn State and five years of experience teaching at the college level. The college classes I've taught all have been reading- and writing-intensive. So, I'm very comfortable teaching reading skills, writing skills, and grammar, along with social-science topics. My academic background is very interdisciplinary! Along with sociology, I've taken graduate classes in rhetoric, communication studies, philosophy, and applied linguistics. Therefore, I'm ready and able to teach and tutor across the social-science humanities. I'd be most comfortable teaching high-school students or older students. But, I'm very open to teaching or tutoring motivated middle-school students, or motivated and mature elementary school students, too. I have experience teaching both in-person and online. I'm happy to use whichever modality meets your and your family's needs.
