About Rod

I am an experienced, thorough and empathetic tutor, who has taught students ranging from middle school through university. I have taught study skills and test preparation to high school seniors aspiring to gain entrance to the University of MD, general psychology to undergraduates, political philosophy to upperclassmen, and all aspects of communication from interpersonal communication to public speaking.

I seek to foster an interactive learning environment in which students participate in and partially determine their own level of mastery. Questions are encouraged and active participation is required.

I have an MA in Communication, BA in Government, and won awards for teaching and scholarship.

I also administered sports programs, including softball and volleyball for the Intramural Dept. of the University of Maryland.

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.

Public Speaking

I have an M.A. in SPCH Comm. from UMCP and have taught many forms of communication including public speaking for more than a decade. I also studied education and the tutoring process while a graduate student. Subsequently, I was hired as a tutor at UMCP for three different subjects.
