I hold a Ph.D. in history, which has given me extensive experience in academic writing and research. My work has been published in peer reviewed academic journals and popular publications. Despite the focus of my studies being history, I am erudite, intelligent, and a quick learner and am able to write on a variety of topics, if given a minimal amount of time for research. I have also taught college level history for over ten years. In my teaching experience, I have written my own lectures using Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Excel for grading purposes. Ultimately, I am both a teacher and a student. I love to learn new things and in turn teach that knowledge to others.
