As a professional city manager for more than 25 years for several Michigan municipalities, I love tutoring in my career subjects of government, public policy, civics, social studies, political science, and public administration. I possess a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Human Services with a concentration in Public Administration. I enjoy helping students achieve their full potential and overcoming their educational challenges. I believe strongly in the idea that each student has the ability to accomplish any goal with hard work, perseverance, and access to appropriate learning tools.
I specialize in tutoring subjects in government, public policy, civics, social studies, political science, and public administration for junior high, high school, and college undergraduates. I strive to provide an understanding, cooperative, collaborative, and supportive learning environment for my students and work hard to help them achieve success in their learning goals. Therefore, I assign challenging lessons after each session, provide periodic evaluations and feedback on progress, and provide periodic progress reports. I hold myself and my students to high academic standards.
I also hold myself to high professional standards, and I will ask for feedback from my students on my performance as their tutor. I will not bill for lessons for which my students or parents are not completely satisfied with my tutoring services.
I try to be flexible with schedules and will work hard to try to accommodate most evening or weekend tutoring needs. While I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.
A quiet, comfortable, and conducive meeting space is extremely important to the learning process. For that reason, I try to arrange for tutoring sessions at mutually convenient locations at local libraries, other quiet public places with appropriate accommodations, or at the student's home, if preferred and if a parent is at home at the time of lessons.
If you are in need of excellent tutoring services in government or related subjects, I look forward to hearing from you and in helping you to achieve success in your studies!

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.
