History Tutor/ Talk

15


15 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 04, 2019

Have either a conversation where I regal you with tidbits, stories and historical narratives relating to an area of your choice as I have experience in most areas from ancient, modern and everything in between. Jewish History, the marginalized, and so on. My style is to focus on trends and patterns instead of individual people, although I don't ignore interesting lives to say the least.
This can also be a tutoring session in any areas you are having trouble with.

Training & Qualifications


I hold a Minor in History; but that is simply an outgrowth of my curiosity and life long love of reading and learning about the subject as a whole and its cross-discipline nature of our social sciences. My experience is of the nerdy type, interested in ideas, understanding, and relating the past to our present and future, at least how we experience it.

Availability & Preferences


Most Times

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Esther received session of History Tutor/ Talk from Dan
Nov 21, 2021
The conceptual framework of the different 'tiers' or levels of detail of history books was very helpful. Also the tip about contacting college profess...ors for more specific resources. I like that he provided specific examples of books that fit into the different categories so I could understand what he meant better. He was very patient with my frequent clarifying questions, which I really appreciated. Very helpful service!show more

Such a wonderful introduction to time banking and radical economics. Dan knows his stuff (and his history). His talk delivered, and his well time wit,... made it memorable. If you want to know more about radical economics, or interested in any of his other deal packages, go ahead and propose an exchange! (I can't wait to take him up on his deals for politics!). Highly recommend.show more
