UNC Chapel Hill (Anthropology)
UNC Charlotte (Master's)
UNC Charlotte (PhD)
After leaving the US Navy in 2004, I started attending UNC Charlotte because it was located near where my parents lived. From 2005-2008, I earned two Master's Degrees, one in Liberal Studies and one in Ethics and Applied Philosophy. From 2009-2015, I earned a PhD in Public Policy.
I consider myself to be an expert in public policy and political science, based off of my doctoral education, with a wide variety of research experiences ranging from education policy to urban policy. I taught research methods courses in undergraduate criminal justice and undergraduate political science courses, as well as being a teaching assistant for doctoral public policy students. I have also taught liberal studies and political science courses.
I have seven years of experience using SPSS for doctoral level research. I spent one thousand hours using SPSS for the quantitative analysis portion of my dissertation and have spent another four thousand hours using SPSS for my research and for assisting my students in their research.
I have a master's degree in Ethics and Applied Philosophy.
I have five years of experience using STATA for doctoral level research.
I have an in-depth background in government, politics, and political science that I gained while I obtained my doctorate in public policy.
I would encourage students to contact me if they wish to spend learn how to use SPSS or STATA from an expert or if they desire a tutor who is capable of offering in-depth analysis for the subjects of government, philosophy, politics, or political science.

I am willing to travel up to two hours to tutor students, though I will charge for travel time and any lesson would have to be cancelled two hours before I would be scheduled to leave my house.
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 have a doctorate in Public Policy from UNC Charlotte. I have spent seven years as a teaching assistant in Political Science (in both Research Methods and US Government). I have also independently taught course in Political Science courses in Constitutional Studies, Research Methods, and US Government.
I have experience with STATA from doctoral level courses in statistical analysis that I took while pursuing my doctorate in Public Policy at UNC Charlotte. I have additional experience from when I was a teaching assistant in Public Policy and assisted doctoral level students in using STATA in a doctoral level research methods class. I also used STATA to double-check the results of my SPSS analysis for the statistical analysis of my doctoral dissertation.
