Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
Most of my teaching experience is with various United States History and Social Science college courses, both an in-person format and online format. I have also tutored college students with disabilities and K-12 students. I have adapted the IEP (Individualized Education Program) method of instruction. In other words, I believe that given the chance each student can succeed if they are able to utilize their own distinct strengths and build upon past successes.
