As a former Associate Professor of Middle East History at the United States Air Force Academy, I had the privilege of teaching thousands of cadets in World, Middle East, and Military History. I graduated from the Air Force Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree and a major in International Affairs. I was on the Dean's List for seven of eight semesters. Prior to that I attended the Air Force Academy Prep School and increased my English and Math SAT scores by over 100 points. I can assist you in improving your SAT scores!
I have a graduate degree in National Security Affairs and Middle East Studies from the Naval Postgraduate School. I was a Distinguished Graduate. I also took a year of Arabic at the Defense Language Institute.
My exceptional teaching and mentoring at the Air Force Academy earned me the Outstanding Educator Award for the Academy's Department of History and Humanities Division. I was runner-up for the Outstanding Educator Award for the entire Academy faculty. I mentored hundreds of cadets and taught the Academy's How-to-Study program.
I like learning to be fun and will work with you to achieve your goals. I firmly believe that good writing is the key to a successful career regardless of your chosen profession. I will work with you to be a better writer. I also want you to be a critical thinker and will challenge you to think critcally about a wide range of issues regardless of the topic--but it will be fun!
I also served as the Associate Director of Admissions at the Air Force Academy and can provide advice and assistance for applying to high quality colleges and getting a scholarship. One of my best recommendations for tutoring is my daughter who went to a quality college, was selected for her college's Hall of Fame, and earned a Fulbright Scholarship.
I look forward to hearing from you.
