I have a Bachelors in Political Science from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. I am 6 hours shy of my Masters in International Relations from Webster University, St. Louis, MO. While studying my masters I had the opportunity to live overseas. Most of the course work was taken while in London, England. I also had the opportunity to travel whilst living in Europe. I traveled to many countries in Europe such as England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, France, Austria, Switzerland, Turkey, Sweden, Monaco, Spain, and others just to name a few. I am also an Army Reservist. I have never deployed, but am always looking for opportunities. I am a person of cultures and languages, the way I learn is through meeting others and learning about themselves.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ASVAB

I took the ASVAB in 2010 to enter the US Army. The first test I took, which was a practice test, projected a high score. I took the ASVAB the next day and scored a 108. I am now a Psychological Operations Specialist which is a special operations job, in the US Army Reserve.

Fitness

I played soccer for 12 years of my life until I was 16. I then changed sports to cross country and track and field and ran until I graduated from college. Most recently I have added rock climbing for the passed 6 years and physical training with free weights, hiking long distances, and running speed workouts. I also am in the military so I am always running or doing some sort of workout daily.

Geography

SE Asia Geography in Undergraduate

Government & Politics

BA Political Science with an emphasis on International Relations
MA International Relations April 2014

Soccer

I played soccer from age 4 to 16. I left playing soccer only to start running cross country and track and field. I continue to play soccer though. While in college a friend of mine and I played in an adult league and got second place in our league. The next season I played in an indoor league and we got third place. Last fall I played in a 30 and over league and our team got second place, only to lose to a team that had been two points behind us in the polls. I have also watched many soccer games while living in London, England.

Track & Field

I ran cross country and track and field for all four years in high school. Our team won the Texas 5A Track Title in 1999. Cross Country won 1999, and 2000, with runner up the years between. After I left The Woodlands, they went on to win consecutive terms from 2003-2004, and then 2006-2010. While I was a senior I ran at the Nike Cross Country Championship South Division in North Carolina.
