Subculture | Sociology | Chegg Tutors

A subculture is a culture within a broader mainstream culture, with its own separate values, practices, and beliefs. In sociology, the concept of subculture explains the behavior of some social groups; sociologists study subcultures as one way of studying culture. An example of a subculture in the United States is the culture of Mormons, who share beliefs that differ from those of dominant United States culture (for example, that Joseph Smith experienced divine revelation) and practice distinct customs (such as door-to-door missionary work). Subcultures can be based on diverse factors, including where people live, shared interests or profession, age, ethnicity, and religion. Some subcultures are countercultures. Research on subcultures has often focused on deviance (for example, on criminal subcultures).

I have been a private tutor in a variety of subjects, from Geometry to Writing to SAT Prep, for about 6 years. I have experience teaching students of all learning styles and greatly enjoy helping students reach their full potential.

I’m from a small town in Pennsylvania. Outside of school, my two biggest interests are photography and horseback riding. I just recently transferred universities and am enjoying the transition so far. I’m double majoring in Marketing and Sociology and there isn’t a subject I dislike (except maybe calculus!) so I love answering all kinds of questions.
