About Douglas

My lifelong love of learning history and political science and the social sciences comes from years of both education and employment. As a graduate of Millersville University I know, personally, that hard work and dedication can indeed pay off.

I specialize in tutoring American History, Political Science, the Untied States Government, study skills and test prep for these particular subjects. In addition to these subjects, I can teach you, through Geo-literacy, how decisions made in the halls of Congress and the White House, and the United Nations affect people around the world and the future of our changing planet. I am very flexible with your schedule. Anytime you need a tutor or are struggling and wondering how can I cope, I am here for you to assist in any way and every way.

My years of studying, reading, and working in historical related settings has allowed me to gain a better understanding of not only American History, but the exciting world of politics as well. For many years I worked in libraries, archives and historical societies with primary sources relating to historical events. Not only, here, locally, but nationally as well. I understand what it took for Presidents of the United States to make the tough decisions that they did in the White House for not only this nation, but how their decisions have affected other people world-wide in this Geo-political environment. I understand how decisions made in Congress have affected people with the passage of such bills as the Civil Rights Acts, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. The cause that President Franklin D. Roosevelt undertook to take this nation from a Great Depression into World War II. Or how President Lyndon Johnson was stymied in Vietnam. I personally saw these records, first hand, and with the knowledge that I have obtained, I can help you better understand history, geography, politics, Political Science, and Social studies.

My goal is to give you the help and direct you in positive, insightful ways to accomplish your search for knowledge in these subjects. I look forward to talking to you.

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 have a Bachelor's degree in History and Political Science. Plus, I have performed various work in historical societies and museums. I also have a first hand knowledge of history. And I make it fun and enjoyable.
