About Gene

I have a current valid California Social Studies teaching credential.

I worked giving tours in the U.S. Capitol! I hope to run for office someday myself, so I know something about the political process, not just from watching CNN 24/7.
I love politics and currently teach it at CAMS, a high school on the campus of Cal State Dominguez Hills.

I lived in Richmond, Virginia where I soaked up all the American history present there (which is a lot more compared to California). I have visited half the 50 states and I visit a new one every year. If I had a million dollars I'd be a world traveler. I love teaching and talking about culture, sociology, philosophy, history, and politics. I have been doing it for over 22 years!

I have three children ages 8, 14, and 16, so I have lots of patience.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach U.S. History. I moved to Richmond, Virginia to work in Washington D.C. While working for a civic education program, Close Up, I visited all the historical sites in Virginia. I was runner-up for a James Madison Graduate Fellowship to study American History at the University of Virginia in Monticello. I have been teaching the subject for over 20 years!

Geography

I have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach Geography. It is an important subject to know. If I had a million dollars, I'd be a world traveler. Currently I have visited over half the U.S. states and plan to visit a new state every year. Geography is one of my best subjects - I hope to try out for Jeopardy someday and utilize my knowledge of geography to give me that edge to win!

Government & Politics

This is the specific subject I majored in at the University of California at Berkeley! Very political at Berkeley. I also have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach U.S. Government. I even worked giving tours in the U.S. Capitol! I hope to run for office someday myself, so I know something about the political process, not just from watching CNN 24/7.

Political Science

This is the specific subject I majored in at the University of California at Berkeley! Very political at Berkeley. I also have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach U.S. Government. I even worked giving tours in the U.S. Capitol! I hope to run for office someday myself, so I know something about the political process, not just from watching CNN 24/7. I currently teach the subject at CAMS on the campus of CSUDH.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is a passion of mine. I currently coach both Mock Trial and Speech and Debate. Both subjects require a lot of public speaking. I personally publicly speak at my church as well MC special events. I can help people write speeches as well as add flair to their prepared speeches for both school, work, or play.

World History

I have a California Social Studies teaching credential to teach Modern World History at the tenth grade level. I have taught this subject for over 20 years! It is definitely my favorite since I have also had my students role play world leaders and do Model U.N. at CAMS on the campus of CSUDH. This is the subject where we talk a lot about World War I and World War II. I am currently tutoring my daughter who attends Lakewood HS, so if I can tutor her in this subject I can tutor anybody!
