Master's graduate of Duke University where I studied public policy after obtaining a psychology degree from Penn State. I've worked with individuals in a variety of informal teaching and review sessions including economics, econometrics, statistics, and psychology. I love teaching individuals and helping them build skills, knowledge and confidence to allow them to master material and continue to advance to more difficult material. I work with individuals to break down difficult questions and material to ensure they first have a solid foundation of knowledge from which they can build upon in their future education endeavors.

I've successfully completed an academic course that taught advanced skills in Microsoft Excel that were later directly applied in various positions, such as at the Government Accountability Office, as a Graduate Assistant at Duke University, and Research Associate at Penn State University.

I have a Bachelor's in Science in Psychology where I completed a variety of courses in focus areas such as cognitive, developmental, personality, positive psychology & well-being, abnormal, and cross-cultural psychology. I also completed advanced courses in forensic psychology, developmental psychology, and biological psychology.

I have completed a variety of writing intensive courses in both my undergraduate and graduate education. These courses include rhetoric & composition, effective communication, and policy analysis. In addition to these courses, I have published academic articles in which I conveyed complex and technical material in a concise manner. My Master's degree specifically stressed the importance of effective and concise communication, skills I directly applied as an intern at the Government Accountability Office and Graduate Communications Assistant at Duke University.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in your education. I cannot wait to share my knowledge and skills to better prepare you for whatever lies ahead!

During my undergraduate education I minored in political science and completed coursework in Comparative Politics, American Government, and Political Theory. I applied this knowledge as a Research Assistant on two major political science projects, a survey of international law, with results presented at the International Law Association and American Society of International Law conference in 2014, and the Comprehensive Statistical Database of Multilateral Treaties. I focused my honors thesis on the psychology of political decisions, using the Scottish Referendum in 2014 as a case study. I also completed a Master's in Public Policy that build upon this knowledge of the policy process.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient

Michael has only met with my daughter once, but I can tell he is going to be very helpful. He is preparing my daughter for her college psychology test. She is struggling with the book and concepts, Michael did a nice job breaking down the content. I'm glad we found such a knowledgeable tutor.
