About Rob

I am a practicing attorney and completed all the requirements for a Ph.D in political science from Wayne State University including a dissertation approved by the Chair of my committee. However I ultimately switched to the Master's program due to family and work obligations. It is what is known as ABD (All but Dissertation). I graduated with a 3.94 GPA and received numerous scholarships and presented several papers at various political science conferences as a student. I believe that my teaching experience and knowledge of the subject matter make me a strong candidate for tutoring. I have had an excellent opportunity to teach a variety of courses including American Government, Introduction to State and Local Government, Ethics and Public Administration and Law and Society in both the classroom and online. I am also qualified to tutor American History, law and economics. Many of the concepts of political science apply to those disciplines as well. I am aware that many of the ideas and theories are difficult to grasp (and in some cases, to be frank, boring) so I strive to make the abstractions as concrete as possible by applying them to current events and/or providing relevant illustrations.

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.

American History

I recently completed my M.A. in political science from Wayne State and history is an integral part of the curriculum. It would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to understand the American political system without a thorough understanding of American history. I am qualified by WyzAnt to tutor this subject as well.

Economics

I recently completed my M.A. in political science from Wayne State and economics is an integral part of the curriculum. Many political science theories such as the rational actor model or rational choice theory come directly from economics. Additionally, many theories and problems involving public policy require a thorough knowledge of economics.

Government & Politics

I completed all the requirements for a Ph.D in political science including a dissertation approved by the Chair of my committee. However, I ultimately switched to the M.A. program due to family and work obligations. I also have a Law Degree and am a practicing attorney. An obviously large part of political science (and law to a degree) is a complete understanding of government and politics.

Political Science

I completed all the requirements for a Ph.D in political science including a dissertation approved by the Chair of my committee. However, I ultimately switched to the M.A. program due to family and work obligations. My subfields are political theory and public law. I also have a J.D. I believe that my teaching experience and knowledge of the subject matter make me a strong candidate for such a position.
