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.

Bible Studies

I received a Master's Degree in Theology from The Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California in 1990. I served as a Teaching Parish Student at St. Michael's Lutheran Church in Harrisburg, Pa, I was a chaplain at Methodist Hospital in Brokklyn, N.Y., and I was an Intern Pastor at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Oakland, Ca.

I specialize in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Care.

College Counseling

I have been a College Professor for 25 years, and I am well versed in the process of being accepted into college. At U.C. Berkeley, I served on the Admissions Committee and I reviewed applications for both undergraduate and graduate applicants. Also, at Berkeley, I was a Program Associate for the Summer Research Opportunity Program, wherein I assisted students with exposure to graduate level research strategies for the purpose of entrance to graduate school.

Most recently, I have been a Professor at The New York Film Academy, and I taught a number of courses including Film History especially as it related to Liberal Arts and Social Science.

Music History

I have been a professional singer for nearly 50 years. During that time, I performed in numerous venues including Lincoln Center, Good Morning America, and The Royal Albert Hall in London, among others.

As a singer, it is critical to understand Music Theory as you develop your craft. Therefore, the only way to understand Music Theory, is to understand Music History. I am well versed in Indigenous forms of Music in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, and I am very knowledgeable about classical forms in Germany, Italy, England, France, and other European music.

As for America, I am well versed in Religious Music, Spirituals, Gospel, Ragtime, Blues, Jazz, Big Band, Pop, R and B, Rock and Roll and other forms of contemporary music including Hip Hop and Rap.

Political Science

As a Social Science Professor, I have been teaching American Political Science courses for many years at U.C. Berkeley, U.C. Santa Cruz, Glendale Community College, and The New York Film Academy.

I have taught numerous PolySci courses relating to local, state, federal, and international political systems. My areas of specialty include: Political Thought from Aristotle, Plato, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Acquinas and others; Analyses of political structures including Democracies, Oligarchies, Theocracies and others; American Constitutional Development and its relational origins with European Philosophies; Three Branches of American Government, American Political History from Colonial through Contemporary Periods; and International and Foreign Relationships.

A number of my political essays have been published in the LA Times and other periodicals, and I have spoken at many school conventions and conferences on issues related to Political Science.

Public Speaking

I am well known as an award winning public speaker, and I have made presentations in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, New Orleans, Denver, and such diverse places as Puerto Rico, Germany, Wales, Scotland, Brussels, and England. I have spoken at cultural events, academic conferences, school functions, celebrity activities, and many other places.

In terms of my careers, I have been an actor singer, a Professor, and a Director of a nonprofit, all of which require public speaking skills. As an undergraduate at NYU, I studied, drama, theater, and film. I am excellent with storytelling, inflection, tone, humor, and language syntax and usage, and many more. I am very qualified to tutor Public Speaking.

Religion

I received my Master's Degree in Theology several years ago. I have worked in a number of churches, and I have had a number of papers published. In addition, I was the Director of an Interfaith Organization in Los Angeles, and I was the Director of the Chapel at Occidental College, assisting students with their research on a number of topics including religion.

As a Professor at Glendale Community College, I assisted students with a number of research projects in Religion, Social Science, and Humanities. I am very qualified to tutor students in Religion.

Social Studies

I have been a Professor of Social Science, Humanities, and Culture for nearly 25 years. As a Professor, I consistent engage my students in their self awareness and the interaction with the world around them. I have always started my classes with current events, relating to politics, religion, economics, history, class, ethnicity, media, and many more.

In addition, I recognize that the world of education has changed in light of the prevalence of social media. Therefore, I utilize, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and others to help students learn about American culture and society. Lastly, I utilize interactive teaching methodologies utilizing the arts, especially theater, music, dance, visual art, and many mothers.



Sociology

I have been teaching Sociology and Social Science for 25 years at U.C. Berkeley, U.C. Santa Cruz, Glendale Community College, and The New York Film Academy.

As a sociologist, I teach a number of topics related to American structures, systems, and institutions. These topics include: Race and Ethnicity, Gender Categories of Masculinity and Femininity, Class and Social Stratification, Family Structures and Theories of Development, Religion and Spirituality, Media and Society, and Art and Society, among others.

As a Sociology Professor, I have won numerous awards, been published in a number of journals, magazines, and books, and I am a very popular Public Speaker,

Study Skills

I have been a college Professor for 25 years, and I have spent quite a lot of my time working with students on their study skills Clearly, the most important element is time management. Many students do not understand the importance of planning their study periods in such a way that it provides maximum capacity. Trying to memorize everything is not a positive use of time, and likewise, cramming for exams is also a negative use of time.

In the past, I have also assisted students with exam prep as well as paper construction. Many students do not understand what is required of them by their instructors, and I assist students with their communication skills to better achieve the goals of the teachers. Also, writing papers and essays is very difficult for students, even in light of Google and other search engines. Learning healthy strategies for essay and paper construction, especially utilizing primary source material, is also a specialty of mine.

I am well qualified to tutor Study Skills for WyzAnt.

Theatre

I have been an actror/singer for nearly 50 years, and I am very knowledgeable about theater and the Performing Arts. During my tenure in New York, I appeared in many theatrical productions including King Lear, Othello, and others. Also, as a result of my Humanities studies, I also became well versed in Theater History as well. This includes, The early Greek tragedies, the Middle Ages Passion Plays, Shakespeare, Opera, Theater of the Absurd, George Bernard Shaw, Eugene O'Neill, Tennessee Williams, and Modern Musicals among others.

However, I also recognize that theater is not only about acting. A few years ago, I served as a Stage Manager for a new musical about the Greek character of Orpheus. In this role, I supervised the scenery construction, musical direction, prop arrangements, lighting, sound, and many others as well.
