About Michael

Hello! I am a tutor available for social studies topics, including US and world history, economics, geography, government and politics, and related subjects.

My tutoring style adapts to each student I am working with, recognizing that each student has individual needs and situations. Not only will we work on specific subject matter, but building study habits to better facilitate future learning. I am also a sports coach and goal driven. We will set goals and work to achieve those goals systematically. I am a believer in catching my athletes and students doing things right. It is my philosophy that making this a priority helps build the desire to achieve more of the same.

Over the past 20 years, I have been a coach for a variety of sports and a scout leader while working in the private industry in sales and international business. I decided in late 2008 to return to school to get a teaching degree and graduated from Western Michigan University in December of 2011 with a BA in Secondary Education/Social Studies. While there, I was admitted for membership in the Phi Alpha Theta History Honors Society and nominated for membership in Kappa Delta Pi Education Honors Society. Both of these honors were for academic excellence in these subject areas.

I have been a substitute teacher for several years and have also worked as a cognitive skills trainer with elementary through high school age students. I am currently employed through Lincoln Public Schools.

I look forward to working with you to meet your individual tutoring needs.

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 graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in social studies with a history minor. I had extensive coursework in History as a part of both my major and minor. I am a member of Phi Alpha Theta History Honors Society and the Organization of American Historians.

Economics

Prior to earning my teaching degree in social studies, I had been an economics major at Nebraska Wesleyan University. I had coursework in micro and macro economics, economic statistics, and economic theory.

Football

I played college football at Nebraska Wesleyan University and for 8 years I coached and played at the semi-pro level in Nebraska and Michigan. I have coached at the secondary level for the past 15 years and coached for a professional indoor football team for the past two years.

Geography

As a part of the social studies curriculum at Western Michigan University, I have had extensive preparation through coursework in physical geography, world, and regional geography. I have also taught geography in a middle school environment.

Government & Politics

I have had a great amount of coursework on US government policy and history, as well as international politics, and European and Latin American political structures, policies, and history.

Social Studies

I am a certified teacher in the states of Nebraska and Michigan, having graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education- Social Studies, with a minor in History. I held a 3.19 gpa and was a member of Phi Alpha Theta History Honors Society. I plan on graduate school through the University of Nebraska in history.

World History

Much of my history coursework at Western Michigan University was in the field of World History. I had extensive coursework in overall world history, specifically Latin American History, Middle Eastern History, European History, and Asian History.
