About Brad

I am a working geologist with a graduate degree in structural geology, and undergraduate degrees in both English and general geology. As an ASU graduate student, I assisted in the development and implementation of the online geology lab courses, as well as taught the on-campus lab courses. Additionally, I was the teaching assistant for structural geology, geological disasters, and conducted my own research on campus.

I hold a B.A. in English from U of A and recently began tutoring English composition in my spare time again. I love to teach one-on-one, so I have avoided the academic environment and their respective large classes.

I've worked as a consulting geologist for six years, hold undergraduate and graduate degrees in geology, and taught the subject at Arizona State University.

I have many years tutoring literary analysis, multiple styles of writing (technical, business, scientific), and can work with all levels of experience.

I'm personable and flexible with my teaching style. Feel free to contact me at any time should you need assistance in these subjects.

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.

English

Besides having both an undergraduate and graduate degree in geology, I also hold a B.A. in English. Many of my students seek help with their English composition and essay writing skills. My experience includes corporate training and employee writing skill development, as well as one-on-one lessons.

Geology

I have my B.S. and M.S. in geology, and four years of teaching geology laboratory both on campus and online, geological disasters, and structural geology at ASU. I also assisted in the design, implementation, and instruction of the online geology lab.
