About Seth

Hello,

My name is Seth and I recently attained a masters degree in cultural anthropology at Western Michigan University, have a bachelor's degree in history (also from Western Michigan University) and am currently pursuing a PhD in interdisciplinary studies and a Master of Social Work en route. I am an excellent tutor, with a passion for providing instruction and critical feedback in many areas, such as, but not limited to: world history, cultural anthropology, critical reading and writing, cultural and historical research, presentations (PowerPoint or paper presentation), and athletic training with an emphasis on Weight Training and Martial Arts/Self Defense oriented training.

In regards to writing, it is a personal passion as well as a necessary skill in the field of history and anthropology. I have years of experience reviewing academic literature on numerous social and historical topics, as well as connecting current literature to primary source material and field work generated data. I also encourage a diversity of writing styles and approaches. The genres of writing in my experience and training range from government planning documents, a full length article on psychological training and preparation in the United States Marine Corps, opinion pieces, historical papers, poetry, fiction, nonfiction and prose.

Areas of previous and continuing research include ethnohistory, or the blending of historical and anthropological approaches to ethnic interactions and conflicts, Native American youth suicide, mental health and medical anthropology. I have experience serving individuals from diverse backgrounds, from special needs to mid-level college students and non-traditional students.

I appreciate your time and I hope you consider me as a future assistant in your endeavors. Regardless of your choice, all the best to you in your field.

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.

Martial Arts

Martial became also became an endeavor at a young age. Prior to high school graduation, I had experienced 2 years of karate, an intensive 4 month period of instruction in Tae Kwon Do, and wrestled for 4 years.(Though it is not typical thought to be a "martial art", wresting incorporates much of the same discipline and general practices as other traditional art forms).
While in the Marines, I attained 3 out of 5 belt advancements available within the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP). Upon my honorable discharge, I received 6 months of instruction at Cooper's Gym, located in Detroit, where I practiced Hapkido and Muay Thai (kickboxing). Outside of hand to hand combat training and experience, I am certified as an instructor in urban warfare and as an executive security detail specialist. I am also a veteran of 2 combat deployments to Iraq.
My military experiences mainly relates to the civilian world in the fields of self defense and weapons coaching.
