About Doug

Hello! I have a History/Political Science BA from Mount Aloysius College in Cresson PA. I graduated in December 2007, and recently moved to the Harrisburg area working in the transportation field. I have a passion for military history.

I do not take an approach of beating someone down with facts, that is boring. I like to teach on an individual basis, and cater teaching to the level of the person. I am sure we've all been around someone that just talks technical details for way too long, which loses student interest, thus they do not learn. I like to keep things as interesting as they can be, and strive to make sure you get the concepts at the same time.

I have a BA in History/Political Science with a minor in Religious Studies. I graduated Cum Laude with a 3.6 GPA. I am also a volunteer at the PA Military Museum, in which I operate a "hands-on" military weapons exhibit, and provide general tours. I have been a student of history since my childhood, and enjoy learning new subject matter and also teaching a subject many find to be boring, by catering to the individual, and attempting to keep it interesting and engaging.

I am not your standard tutor, and I want you to actually enjoy your time learning. I want to make the subject matter easier to learn for you. Your success is my goal, and together we can get you to where you need to be. Contact me today for any further information or to schedule a lesson today!

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.
