About Brad

I love learning, and I love getting students excited about learning! While I've worked mostly with college students, I enjoy working as well with high school and even elementary and middle-school students (my own children being those ages). I love exploring history and politics, discussing why these things matter today, and helping students develop superior writing skills. I also enjoy helping students get organized personally for their work, and think through plans for further education.

I truly enjoy reading and writing, thinking through how to express ideas clearly and in a way that is compelling and persuasive to others. I have authored my own academic book and articles, and I have helped hundreds of students in and out of the classroom make significant improvements in their writing skills.

I love stories, and I find that those that are true are often even more fascinating than fiction (which I also love)! I have a master's degree in political science and a bachelor's in history, so I very much enjoy examining current events and then researching how they have developed over time, and how we can engage in those issues that are most important to us. I enjoy examining why people have behaved the way they do politically, both now and throughout time, and I love to help students get excited about these things, too.

If you are a student who enjoys learning new things, yet finds certain subjects challenging and would like some help thinking through them, I would be happy to work with you! I am open to both in-person and online tutoring, and I would be happy to have an initial conversation with you and your parents about how we might tailor our sessions to your specific needs. If you are interested, I would love to hear from you!

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.

Bible Studies

I earned an MA in theology in 2006, followed by a PhD in Religious Studies in 2011. I completed several graduate-level courses in biblical study, and I have been active in teaching biblical studies as a lay person for 20+ years. I have also taught biblical studies as part of introductory theology courses at several institutions, and I am able to approach the text in a non-threatening manner to students.

Political Science

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in political science, and I very much enjoy engaging students around the major contemporary issues and theory in the field. I have taught American politics and government, international relations, and political philosophy at multiple institutions. Finally, my PhD dissertation, while primarily in religion, was interdisciplinary with political science and nationalism studies.

Religion

I have an MA in Christian theology and a PhD in religious studies. My research has engaged with the interaction of religious identity and politics, economics, etc. I am somewhat familiar with other major religious systems and would be able to tutor to some extent in their understanding, but much of my work has been in the Christian context.

Social Studies

In the course of my four degrees, my main areas of study have been politics, religion, and history. As such, I have studied the interplay between those elements and others, such as social structures, economics, and cultural definition and development. I would be very open to teaching social studies at multiple levels, and having worked with both college students and adolescents, I am comfortable communicating essential elements in ways that are appropriate and accessible for different ages/grades.

Writing

I have three graduate degrees, all of which required extensive writing. In addition, I have published a book and several articles. I also usually include a significant writing component in the courses I teach, and I provide extensive feedback on writing to my students.
