My initial teaching experience directly out of college included both Middle School and High School assignments in World History, US History, Geography, Sociology and Political Science to a wide range of reading levels and academic skills. After getting a Masters Degree in Education and Mass Communications I taught as an adjunct faculty member at the university level while also pursuing a business career.
After working for international companies in advertising and marketing and owning several businesses, my lifelong interest in education and training has brought me full circle to the world of academics again. As an avid reader, including historical and political literature, I bring a wide spectrum of knowledge to many subjects to be shared with my students to enhance their interest level in the basic subject matter and help ensure their success in the classroom.
My desire to tutor is based on a keen interest in working with students on a one to one basis and totally focusing on their needs. After several successful careers the individual and independent naturing of tutoring feeds my desire to see young people meet and master challenges they face in the classroom. I want to spend my time teaching without the extensive time demands and administrative paperwork involved in a full time school assignment.

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.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. I taught for 6 years at the high school and junior high school levels in Political Science, Government and Problems of Democracy in Harford County, Maryland. I have been active as a volunteer advisor in several political campaigns.
