About Steve

I hold a Ph.D in American Studies from the University of Kansas; during this time, I tutored for KU's Department of Athletics, working with student-athletes one-on-one in a wide variety of Humanities courses. I also taught my own courses for five years, particularly those based on U.S. history and general social studies.

I have a passion for helping students grow into academic success, and would like to continue to do so after my recent move to Hershey/Harrisburg. It is particularly gratifying to watch a student not only achieve higher grades, but truly learn HOW to think at a higher level, which sets him/her up for long-term success.

With this broad humanities training, I am ready to teach secondary/college students in similar fields, especially History, Social Studies, and SAT Reading & Writing. This includes AP test prep: I completed the U.S. History exam with the max score of "5".

I am typically available between 9am and 9pm during the week, with the potential for Sunday sessions as well. Locations are flexible. *Note: during summer 2017, I will be out of town July 15-29 and August 13-20.

Thank you for the consideration!

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 completed an undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina. I also interned in the U.S. House of Representatives and the North Carolina Metropolitan Coalition, which works within the NC state legislature. Finally, my current work in American Studies frequently addresses political and philosophical issues.

Social Studies

I completed a Ph.D in American Studies, which is a broad humanities field. We incorporate such disciplines as History, Sociology, Media Studies, and other fields within our work, both in the classroom and publications. I have taught Intro to American Studies for five years. Furthermore, I have tutored student-athletes at the University of Kansas in a wide range of humanities courses.
