About Eric

Education is about learning to see things as they are, to explore ideas and reality, to think ably, and to communicate well. I spent a thirty year military career cultivating those qualities in myself and in others.

Even before my final assignment as a graduate school instructor in international relations, philosophy, analysis, strategy, etc., I had earned the nick name "The Professor" for my focus on opening the minds and skills of my subordinates. I love the liberal arts and sciences and I love opening students to truth, beauty, and goodness.

I am the homeschooling father of five and have worked for an online K-12 classical school.

I specialize in Philosophy, Political Theory, International Relations, Government, Economics, and History. I've studied all of these academically and have extensive professional experience applying them in the real world in settings as diverse as the Old Executive Office Building (The White House) and Kandahar, Afghanistan.

I can also teach Literature, Writing, Public Speaking (I've both taught it and done it successfully to world wide professional audiences), Research Methods, and General Science (particularly "Philosophy of Science").

I look forward to helping you see the world more clearly and achieve your academic and professional goals.

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.

Political Science

I am qualified to tutor in Political Science for several reasons. First, my undergraduate degree is in Political Science with a concentration in Political Theory and Early American Political Thought. Second I studied the subject a great deal as a consequence of my graduate school education in Strategic Intelligence with a particular interest in International Relations and the workings of the U.S. Defense and Intelligence Community bureaucracies. Finally, I have nearly three decades real world experience as an officer of the United State Government.

Public Speaking

As a career Army officer much of my professional success hinged on the ability to speak effectively to diverse audiences and, as a speech writer, to help others do so as well. Second, as an Information Operations officer, the theory of rhetoric drove much of my work, indeed, I both literally wrote a book on the military application of it and have been cited in a popular business book on the subject. Finally, as a classical educator, I find public speaking to be a fundamental skill for all educated people and have pursued its development in my own children and students I taught as a graduate school instructor.

Social Studies

I have an academic background in Political Science and Strategic Analysis and professional work involving the practical application of Cultural Anthropology in multiple overseas locales. Not only have I been responsible for studying and advising political and military leaders on aspects of cultural intelligence and their policy ramifications, but I have also conducted multiple negotiations in cross cultural environments. I have also dealt with and supervised the work of cultural anthropologists in the field as well as planning and conducting political marketing campaigns in foreign locales.
