My name is Steve C., and I live in San Rafael, CA. I have a Master's Degree in Political Science. I have taught college courses at Ventura College and Citrus College, I recently taught several subjects at a private high school in Santa Barbara (including Pre-Calculus, Algebra I and II, World History, English Lit and US Government)and I have tutored for government/political science courses and basic statistics courses as well. My undergrad work was at Monmouth College in Illinois. I double-majored in Music and Business Administration. My teaching evaluation scores have all been very high, well above the norm. I believe this is because I make every effort to turn material that students think is dull into interesting stuff.
My style is a mix of Jon Stewart and Thomas Friedman. The point is to get the student to understand the subject by engaging them with the material as it relates to them in the real world. I avoid the trappings of being politically correct; my analysis is non-partisan, and I believe that understanding all sides of a position is essential. Even if you hate politics, or statistics, or whatever subject you're considering using me for, you'll not hate it when I'm done. You'll learn, and you'll do well in your class.
I twice served as Teaching Assistant to an upper-division Criminal Justice course at UC Santa Barbara; I was named lead-TA for the second course. This course was taught by Superior Court Justice Joseph Lodge. I was responsible for clarifying lecture materials, preparing students for assignments and exams, and I graded the exams as well for the 100+ students in my sections.
I earned a Master's Degree in Political Science from UCSB.
I have taught political science courses at Napa Valley College, Ventura College and Citrus College.
I taught US Government at Eureka School in Santa Barbara.
