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.

Social Studies

I have an AA degree in Justice Administration from Eastern Arizona College, Thatcher, Arizona.

I have a BA degree in History/Government from Brigham Young University-HI.

I have an MA degree in Political Science from University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii.

-- I completed all course work and passed Comprehensive Exams for a PhD degree in Political Science at University of Hawaii and advanced to ABD Certificate level, the Dissertation writing phase of my PhD.

I was trained to teach American Government and Politics by the Hawaii State Department of Education and have been teaching for the past 8 years at a Hawaii DOE school (McKinley Community School).

I have participated in many educational and advocacy roles and have addressed State Legislatures, the United Nations, and national and international organizations on environmental justice issues and policy matters that affect minority sectors of national populations. Taking a cue from all my learning and teaching of American politics, history, political science, the social sciences in general, I am translating these theoretical frameworks and understandings into action by my own participation in educational and advocacy efforts in my local community as well as in regional and international communities.

Thank you.
