Thank you for your interest in having me become your tutor. I live in Frisco, TX and enjoy working with high school and college students.

As an instructor at the college level for several years, I have developed a deep appreciation and knowledge about government and politics.

From the basic understanding of "who gets what, when and how" to more complex terms that define global politics, I can work to create an understanding of subject matter related to American and International Politics.

While navigating the graduate course work for a MA and PhD program I have become a proficient writer. Teaching has provided me the opportunity to provide reading and writing feedback and instruction for my students.

College Counseling

I worked in college admissions for 5 years and in a scholarship and financial aid capacity for another few years. Additionally I was the Executive Director at Karen Dillard's College Prep for three years. This prep center focused on test preparation but provided advice about the admissions process. My entire career has been in higher education and devoted to students success and helping students learn to navigate the admissions and completion process.

English

Through four years of undergraduate work and several years of graduate level studies I have developed a keen ability to write creatively and for informational purposes.

As an instructor with writing based courses, assigning tasks and grading written assignments has charged me with developing writing rubrics. I have also instructed students with tips to use proper grammar and appropriate word choices with their writing. These skills will lead to success for the writing students I tutor.

Government & Politics

I have a BA and MA in Political Science. Currenty, I teach Federal Government classes at the collegiate level. Over the past 10 years, I have taught various classes in Political Science.

Reading

As a college level instructor of Government for over 5 years, I assign significant reading to my students. Leading the class and providing instruction requires that I have a strong command of all material. Additionally, I navigate coursework for a Master's and PhD. This process increased my capacity to read, comprehend and teach.

Social Studies

I have a BA and MA in Political Science. Currenty I teach a Federal Government classes at the collegiate level. Over the past 10 years I have taught various classes in Political Science.

Writing

I have engaged in significant research projects and written several successful proposals and grant applications. As a graduate student my writing was refined and honed while completing projects for my Political Science Courses. While serving as an instructor, I have developed a critical eye to critique and improved student’s writing and help them develop their “voice”.
