About Robert

If you despise writing assignments in any Social Science or Humanities, I will coach you past it and promise excellent results. You really can write, enjoy it, and get good grades
when you are facing a deadline on a History, Political Science, or Philosophy paper and are stuck - or can't glue it together - we can make it work, together. My coaching and your ideas, will yield fantastic results. Obviously, the earlier you get on the assignment the better. Bring the syllabus and the assignment and what you have done to our first meeting and we may not have to see each other again until next semester.
I work best with young adults and returning students and will consider mature high schoolers.

I was the gateway for all content, assessments, and learning activities for the African American Studies, History, and Political Science programs at the University of Maryland University College for seven years. My content, material, and assessment designs were all tailored for one thing -student success. My doctorate is in a field called Atlantic World: that period covers precolonial to the revolutions that changed the face of the New World.

Call me early and use me less. I want you to stand on your own and not have to always rely on outside help. You will find your critical thinking, organizational skills, and ability to communicate enhanced by our time together. Looking for struggling UCR History Majors, undergrad or grad; let's play.

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.

Classics

Historians with a doctorate are required to study classic Greece and Rome (both eras). This includes philosophy, the formation of religions, art, and politics. My teaching spans from pre-history into the modern era. Any weakness I hold would be in the Asian classics. For undergraduates my knowledge base is adequate but any self-respecting doctoral candidate in Asian studies would eclipse me.

Government & Politics

If you despise writing assignments in any Social Science or Humanities, I will coach you past it and promise excellent results. You really can write, enjoy it, and get good grades

Political Science

I was the chair for UMD for Political Science and government. All content, assessments, learning objects and curricular changes required my signature before implementation. My areas of expertise in this field are constitutional (including European), revolutions, legislative process, theory, and monarchical structures both constitutional and ancient regime. My level of expertise in PS and GVPT serves undergraduate population unless it deals with the Spanish Civil War-I own that.
