About Tracy

Hello! I am a practicing anthropologist with a research interest in art, social activism, and globalization. I am also a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) with many years of project management work behind me. I am an accomplished writer and lecturer, but I also have experience teaching in many different environments, including teaching project management principles to first graders. I enjoy working one on one with students to develop their knowledge of anthropology and sociology or project management. I can help students develop their skills in writing and composition and in giving presentations. Most of my own writing consists of making scholarly arguments and critically analyzing data. With coaching, you can develop the ability write a convincing argument or to critically analyze the work of others. These are valuable skills to have if you want to be successful in almost any field of study or work. I can provide proofreading and editing services for you as well as tutoring. I am thoroughly knowledgeable of the APA 6.0 style manual.

I am always excited to meet new students. Together we can explore new ideas and skills that will benefit both of us.

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.

Anthropology

I have a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's and Ph.D. in human and organizational systems, which is a cross-disciplinary social sciences research degree. Anthropology is the discipline that I use to complete social research and provide a theoretical framework for the analysis of data. I am a member of the American Anthropological Association and the Society for Applied Anthropology. I regularly attend and present papers at anthropological conferences. My recent publication is an ethnography of Occupy groups in Southern California.

Sociology

I have a master's and Ph.D. in human and organizational systems, which is a cross-disciplinary social sciences research degree. The study of sociology is a fundamental element in achieving these degrees, and sociological theory informs all research and analysis in the study of society. While my primary discipline in anthropology, I have taken numerous sociology courses, regular read scholarly sociology articles and books, and use sociological theory in my own research. I am well versed in the science of sociology.
