About John

I am a doctoral candidate at Rutgers University back home in Dayton working on my dissertation. While I'm here I would love to tutor some high school and colleges students in writing and the social sciences! I am passionate about teaching and hope to transition into a professorship once I graduate. I have taught a number of courses at UD in recent years.

I believe that academic success comes more from practice and drive and less from natural talent. Academic writing may seem daunting to some, but is really just a skill set that takes time and patience to develop. Similarly, social studies (e.g. political science, history, sociology, etc) are often seen as confusing or boring to many. I focus less on what and when questions, as no one likes memorizing dates, and more on why and how questions! I would love to take part in crafting your academic skill sets!

I have published several academic articles and am currently co-editing a text book. Before returning to academia, I worked in local and state government in Ohio. Additionally, I also managed several local level political campaigns. I am well versed in all things American social sciences. I can provide more references as needed.

My base rate is $35 an hour (only because of this site's commission fee is so much). I am based near UD/downtown Dayton and can travel to your location.

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.

Political Science

I hold a BA in Political Science, a Masters in Public Administration, and I am ABA in a Urban Studies PhD program. Additionally, I have worked in local and state government. Finally, I have managed several local-level political campaigns.

Public Speaking

I have several experiences that prepare me to tutor in public speaking. First, I spent several years coaching a university debate team. Second, several of my professional experiences required me to address public meetings in a variety of capacities. Third, I have managed several political campaigns that required me to prepare speech notes and provide coaching for the candidate.

Social Studies

I hold a BA in Political Science, a Masters in Public Administration, and I am ABD in a Urban Studies PhD program. Additionally, I have worked in local and state government. Finally, I have managed several local-level political campaigns. All of these qualifications equip me to tutor in social studies.
