World History teacher | Tutor for 10 years

I hold a degree in World History from High Point University, where my passion for unraveling the tapestry of our past was ignited. With a commitment to fostering curiosity and critical thinking, I bring a wealth of knowledge to every lesson. Whether exploring ancient civilizations or analyzing modern geopolitics, I strive to make history come alive for my students. Let's embark on a journey through time together, where every question is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the world.
