University of Nebraska-Lincoln (PhD)
I am a practicing Ph.D. economist (I serve as an expert witness on behalf of ratepayers in electricity and natural-gas regulatory proceedings) with more than 15 years of experience teaching principles of economics and introductory statistics courses as an adjunct faculty member. I most recently taught at Metro State University. I also worked in the development of high-school distance learning courses before I returned to school at age 43 to get my doctorate. I have written a high-school economics course. I minored in geography as an undergraduate. Finally, I have worked as a reporter and copy editor at a newspaper, which is where I polished my writing and proofreading skills. My experience demonstrates that I can work with high school to college students.
I see my first task as a tutor, whatever the subject, as letting you, the student, know that you are in safe hands with me. You may be feeling desperate, alone, perhaps even ashamed because you just don't "get" a course. I won't judge you, because, believe me, I have had my struggles in certain courses and know those feelings. When you trust me we can move forward together to address your academic issues. Please contact me so that we can discuss what your situation is. Chances are I can help, just as I have helped the dozens, even hundreds, of my students over the years who sought individual help.

Marlon is a very patient man, no matter how hard was for me to understand the concepts he made sure I got it. I highly recommend Marlon as your tutor.
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.
I taught microeconomics and macroeconomics principles classes at least half a dozen times each as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and for eight years as an adjunct faculty member at Metropolitan State. Further, I taught a pre-MBA course in economics at Metro State. I know the material covered in each course and know effective methods to assist students learn unfamiliar vocabulary and concepts.
I minored in geography as an undergraduate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My focus within the field was economic geography and European geography.
I have worked as a reporter and editor for newspapers, as an author and editor of distance-education materials, and edited the papers of fellow students while I was in graduate school.
