I have a BA in History with a minor in English and an MA in Govt-Political Science with a minor in History. I have been teaching as a Professor of Government/Political Science and American Dilemmas since 2001 at the College/University level. American Dilemmas is a multi-disciplinary, pre-capstone course taught to juniors and seniors covering issues spanning Sociology, Ethics, History and Political Science and requires a 15-page research paper. I also have eight years of service/experience in Federal and State government which enhances my ability to teach authoritatively.

I currently teach a multi-disciplinary (mix of Political Science/Economics/History) online course to up to 100 students. I also mentor new faculty members.

In the past, I have taught introductory US Government, Texas and Local Government courses to classes of up to 36 students. This consisted of lectures up to twice a week and administering exams and evaluating research papers.

Highly Effective Tutor and Coach

Thanks to Victor, I am on the fast-track to consulting, coachin and facilitating leadership teams in spanish. He has a supportive way of pushing and encouraging me at the same time. I feel like our time together is productive and focused on maximizing my learning.

Angela, 5 lessons with Victor

Great Interaction

I'm very pleased how my reluctant 15 yo son responded to Vic's tutoring. Seems to have formed a good connection because he is engaged and asking questions. Great discussions and reasonable yet challenging homework assignments.

Riley, 10 lessons with Victor

Great Tutor

Victor taught and reviewed with our daughter AP History material in one lesson what a few school classroom sessions could not do. Victor knows History and how to teach it in a way that makes sense and is able to be learned and recalled. Victor has given our daughter hope that she can learn and understand the material and be confident to do well in the exams.

Valentin, 7 lessons with Victor

Very helpful and flexible

Victor is helping me with verb conjugation. He has been flexible when I have had to change appointment times because of business meetings.
