I have been a Military History enthusiast for the past 40 years. From collecting (and reading) books, military scale models, table-top wargaming, role playing games, to studying and writing - this exciting topic has thoroughly captured my imagination. I presently hold a M.A. in Military History from American Military University and have taught a variety of History courses which include a great deal of Military History. 
I am a certified (7-12) Social Studies teacher and have taught a variety of honors level courses (AS/A Level, GCSE, I.B. and A.P.) in both private and public schools over the past 30 years.

My tutoring experience has spanned the entire 21st century with ACT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE, A.P. Histories, and Subject Tests.
