Cal State, Northridge
I have a Master's Degree in Political Science from UCLA and a BA from Cal State Northridge. I spent some time at the Rand Corporation in seminars as well as minoring in Russian. International Relations and Comparative Government were my areas of emphasis. On a local level I have been involved with a state level campaign and well as an initiative proposal. I have a good understanding of US government process and interest groups as well.
I have guest lectured at Glendale and Mission Community Colleges. If you are want to understand how political systems work my explanations will be more practical than theoretical though I will be happy to explain the many specialized terms that you might know as buzz words. My goal is to make sure that you understand a subject as objectively as possible, to that end I will illustrate the view points of competing interests to better demonstrate how terms and concepts can be understood. I am available weekends and evenings as well as on line.

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.
