About Michael

Currently, I am a full time tenured law enforcement and criminal justice instructor at a community college. In respect to my education, I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Law Enforcement and Corrections (double major), a Master's Degree in Education, and I am completing a second Master's Degree in Public Safety.

Since 2002, I have developed and instructed college CJ/LE courses residentially and online. Prior to that, I was a licensed peace officer for twenty-six years. That included thirteen years as a patrol officer and thirteen years as a detective. During that time, I also served as a field training officer (FTO) and undercover narcotics officer. In addition, I am a published author on several criminal justice topics regionally and nationally.

The following are college courses I have *developed and instructed:

1. *Child Abuse and Neglect
2. Security Challenges
3. Cultural Diversity in Criminal Justice
4. *Family Violence
5. *Financial Fraud/White Collar Crime
6. *Homeland Security
8. *Patrol Operations
9. *Persons/Property Crimes
10. *Policing in America
11. *Report Writing/Employee Preparation
12. *Police and Community
13. *Juvenile Justice
14. *Constitutional Law for Criminal Justice Professionals

Having retired early to pursue a teaching career in criminal justice, you will find that I bring a consistently high degree of enthusiasm, passion, and hands-on experience that is relevant to all three levels of the criminal justice system (police, courts, & corrections).

I have found that (just like me) criminal justice students are overwhelmingly visual and tactile learners. To be an effective tutor, individual instruction should be grounded in experiential (show me-don't just tell me) teaching exercises, assignments, and evaluations (tests) that accurately and objectively measure a students subject comprehension and real-life application. As a former peace officer, I am able to relate specific experiences (serious and/or humorous) I encountered to help engage student interest, involvement, and enthusiasm to learn.

As in any relationship, developing trust is paramount to learning and on-going clear communication (spoken and written). I believe that ability sets me apart from most teachers/tutors...I am sincerely interested in developing individual student rapport and adept at creating an environment for any student to help them effectively learn and retain knowledge.

You will find me to be a no-nonsense instructor (with a sense of humor). Because I know what is required to succeed in the criminal justice field, I expect my students to be highly motivated and excited about his or her potential career in criminal justice. I am excited for all of you who have chosen to pursue a career in criminal justice.

Criminal Justice

I have been developing and instructing criminal justice and law enforcement classes residentially and online since 2002 (currently a tenured FT college professor). Prior to that I was a licensed peace officer for twenty-six years. As I did as a peace officer, you will find that I deliver a high degree of enthusiasm, knowledge, and experience as a criminal justice tutor (sense of humor included).
